My Life In Photos

October is going by way too fast but looking back at pictures, it's been an enjoyable month so far. 

I've been baking like crazy lately and I've whipped up a few different zucchini breads with the zucchini we grew in our garden. This one is an apple zucchini loaf and it turned out so moist. 

We tried out a new frozen yogurt place when we were visiting a different city recently. Apparently Menchie's is a chain but we've never heard of it before. Their flavour options were amazing and it's easily my favourite frozen yogurt bar now. They even had a pumpkin spice flavour. 

An amazing friend I chat with on Twitter, sent me this Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte mix... oh man, it's SO good! I've been pacing myself because I could easily drink it all in a couple of days. Canada really, really needs Trader Joe's. 

I've been reading through a ton of comics lately. I'm going to share some of my new favourites later this week.

We had a gorgeous drive one day that we went out of town. The sun was out and the sky was so blue. I've learnt to love these giant rock walls that are everywhere here. Ignore the inside of the car reflections in these pictures...

On a different drive we encountered the most incredible sky at sunset. I really wish we could have stopped to take more photos. The sky was insane.

How's October been treating you? We still have a few more things planned for this month that I'm looking forward to.

  1. Looks like a lovely month - that sky is amazing! October is going to fast for me at the moment, not had time to do anything seasonal yet!

  2. Woah that is one gorgeous sunset :) And apple zucchini bread (or courgette, as us Brits say) looks delicious, whilst sounding so healthy it's practically a salad. xxx

  3. Gorgeous sunset. Autumn really is the best time of the year.

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
