Indoor Gardening

Since we moved into our house a couple of years ago I've found myself wanting to get into gardening; both indoors and out. Having a cat that absolutely loves to eat plants and dig in dirt makes it hard to have plants inside the house. We found out, however, that small succulents and cactus that fit on the window sill don't interest Seymore. Maybe because of the lack of big leaves to chew on?

Either way, I've accumulated a few little plants for my window sill in the kitchen. But I want more! This year I'm hoping to add more plants to the house. Both in small planters for the windows, air plants, and hopefully some terrariums.

So air plants, have you heard of them? I was beyond intrigued when I read about them. They don't need soil to survive. They absorb their nutrients through their leaves. This means you can put them anywhere that gets sunlight and where there's good airflow! How cool do they look?!

I'm still completely obsessed with adorable cacti and succulents. There are a few types that I desperately want to find (like the bunny ears cactus!). And eventually I'd like to make a terrarium with a bunch of them too. They're so incredible to look at.

We know of two greenhouses near us that I plan to hit up as soon as they open this spring to check out their selection of succulents. I've always visited the greenhouse too late in the season and they're picked over. This is just another reason why I'm itching for spring to show up!

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…
