The Ever Elusive Balance

You've probably all noticed, but I've been super quiet recently. Don't worry, everything's fine. Yet, at the same time, everything's not fine. In truth guys, I've been feeling frustrated lately.  I'm feeling frustrated because I just don't know how to balance everything in my life. There, I said it.  Does anyone else feel that way… Continue reading The Ever Elusive Balance

April Blogging Challenge Day 26: A Pin I’ve Tried {+ A GIVEAWAY}

I have a confession to make.  Guys, I think I am obsessed with Pinterest!  I've got so many pins saved!  However, I'm pretty good at trying them out - not so much with reorganizing my pins though... I wasn't really sure which one of the pins I've tried over the past month I would feature… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 26: A Pin I’ve Tried {+ A GIVEAWAY}

April Blogging Challenge Day 24: A Random Act of Kindness

Last September, while we were celebrating my daughter's birthday with family and friends, I felt something resembling a cramp in my lower right abdomen.  As the evening went on, the pain worsened and by 11pm I found myself on Google wondering whether I might be having an appendicitis. I decided on going to the hospital… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 24: A Random Act of Kindness

One of the goals I'm working towards is running in a 5km race!  I've actually already registered for the race that is going to take place on Sunday September 15th 2019!  I've also registered Charles and Amélie for the 1km race that takes place for kids 12 and under the same day.  It's going to… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 19: A Goal I’m Working Towards

April Blogging Challenge Day 16: Something That Makes Me Awesome

When I first saw this prompt, I wasn't sure if I'd write about it.  To be honest, it kind of created a bit of anxiety in me.  I mean, I can rattle off what makes every one of my kids awesome.  I can tell you why my husband is awesome and why my brother and… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 16: Something That Makes Me Awesome

April Blogging Challenge Day 15: Something I’m Looking Forward To

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much the past few days - we've been hit by bug after bug.  Everyone ended up coming down with the flu - including Adrien (though his was pretty tame).  Elliot got hit the hardest and we actually ended up going to the doctor's this weekend because he was… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 15: Something I’m Looking Forward To

April Blogging Challenge Day 12: My Favourite Colour

When I think about my favourite colour, it's largely contextual.  I mean, if we're talking about clothing, I generally opt for more neutral colours (blacks, whites, greys).  However, I *have* been branching out of my comfort zone and dipping my toes (so to speak) into the world of purples and I must say that it… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 12: My Favourite Colour

April Blogging Challenge Day 11: My Handwriting [+ a peek at my bullet journal!]

This is an interesting prompt!  I really enjoy seeing how other write and am always amazed at how pretty some peoples' calligraphy can be!  My everyday writing isn't super beautiful, but it's clear and has some nice elements that haven't changed since my high school years which makes it recognizable!  What do you notice? Now,… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 11: My Handwriting [+ a peek at my bullet journal!]
