My Life In Photos

Well, there goes another month. I'm so ready and looking forward to the next couple of months. I'm pumped for the Summer. We've already been experiencing Summer weather which has been great. And the thought of afternoons at the beach, swimming in the lake, and heading to Algonquin for camping has me so excited.

I have plans to head to the beach or park numerous times this Summer with a blanket and a book. I found these books second-hand which were an amazing find.

I recently picked up a couple of new Tsum Tsums. How adorable are they?!

Mail has been fun lately too. I received this super amazing Mega Man plushie that I won through a giveaway. He's incredibly well-made by Monster Factory.

I also received the cutest tea snail!

Have you seen a turtle sun bathe? Now you have. It's super cute when they put their little legs up. 

The cats have been extra lazy with the hot weather.

The sunshine has given me new found energy and motivation. I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to spend time outside.

  1. Love these photos! The Tsum Tsums are so cute, and that snail for the tea cup is absolutely adorable.

  2. I've also been super energized by the sun lately. Your pictures are great! Love the Wicket Tsum Tsum and the Megan Man plush, and your cats and your turtle are so cute. I've read two of the three books you got and the other one is number 2 in my tbr pile. Would love to hear your thoughts on them when you are done.

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…
