There are things as a mother that you expect you are going to talk to your children about during certain stages of their life. You know those talks when your mom sits you down on the couch to “talk” and the conversation could go one of  two ways; super awkward or quick and painless. I [...]

I tend not to write too much about animals because at this point in my adult-life I don’t have one. I grew up with a dog and after she passed away my mom wasn’t ready for new dog until  my sister, Auntie Beige moved away to University. The week she left she was replaced by [...]

When I met The Hubster just over 10 years ago (wow!), we joke that he wooed me over with his family’s cottage. The cottage is part of a cottage community and it’s very unique as they run their own summer camp. As the cottage is not too far from Toronto when we met we pretty [...]

Our fall family tradition

You know when you have such a great time together as a family that you just don’t want the day to end? It’s every weekend for me but especially this morning. I wished it could have lasted way longer than it did! I guess it’s become somewhat of a tradition since Princess Peach was born [...]
