My Life In Photos

Life has been a whirlwind of emotions lately; working a lot, sewing like crazy, getting excited for spring, getting frustrated having to shovel a ton of snow. I'm trying to stay organized, de-stressed, and positive but I've had some exhausting days. I enjoy these posts for the fact that I can look back at the good moments that I've had, no matter how small they might have been.

I picked this mug up at Chapters and I love it! Honestly, the entire Dayna Lee collection is amazing. Check it out!

Logan assumes us cleaning the bookshelf means he can investigate all areas he can fit.

I had a brutal cold for a few days a little while ago. I spent the weekend reading and relaxing to get myself better.

Seymore can't handle me sewing for hours on end. He bugs me until I give him a solid 10 minutes of attention.

I have made a promise to myself to start doing yoga regularly again. It helps with my stress and I love how I feel afterwards.

Some days require sprinkles.

A mall date with Adam included a passionfruit bubble tea with strawberry popping bobas.

Every time there's sunshine I try my best to bask in it. It makes these long winters bearable.

Let's hope March turns out to be great and spring shows up early!

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 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 …

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…
