Highlights from Blog Podium | Toronto 2017

Last weekend is still rolling around in my head! Myself and my blogging, mama friend Codi from Creative Wife Joyful Worker packed our bags and flew on Flair Airlines from Vancouver,B.C to Toronto en route to our favourite blogging event, Blog Podium. Also, meeting us there from Nova Scotia was my childhood best friend & maid of honour Katie from Wild Rose Buds. Now, it was really hard to compact everything we learnt in one day, so here it goes!  Continue reading “Highlights from Blog Podium | Toronto 2017”

10 Reasons Why I Blog & Why You Should To

I’ve been putting some thought into this lately. I’m sure I’m not alone. We all go back and forth in our heads the many reasons why we started our blog and what helped push us. It’s not always the most glamorous or easiest but it’s something we enjoy doing and for the reasons listed below. It isn’t something that you would normally think to just start on a whim and have it become successful, at least that wasn’t my intention when I first started. For myself, it started just as a hobby blog to write my inner thoughts. Then it suddenly grew!  Continue reading “10 Reasons Why I Blog & Why You Should To”

Mom’s Night Away | Loden Hotel Giveaway


Mom’s Night Away | Loden Hotel Giveaway

At some point in time it’s almost every mothers dream to sneak away for the night and sleep in a bed all to themselves without a single interruption. To be able to soak in a warm jacuzzi tub & wake up whenever to breakfast and coffee in bed. Best yet, with NO CLEAN UP!! Recently, I got to experience just that with some close girlfriends and mamas. Pretty much a night for the books staying at downtown Vancouver’s award winning Boutique Hotel The Loden. Continue reading “Mom’s Night Away | Loden Hotel Giveaway”

Straight Outta My Twenties…


Straight Outta My Twenties…

Owen and I had a pretty funny talk yesterday this is how it went….

Me: “Owen I wish I could be 29 forever, I don’t want to be 30.”

Owen: “Well what can we do to make that happen?”

Me: “Let’s think of some ideas!”

Owen: “We could build a time machine and take you back to when you were 20!?”

Me: “No, because you weren’t born then.”

Owen: “Ok, we could take you back to when you were 28?”

Me: “No, Ella would still be in my belly and not out yet!”

Owen: “Hmmmm. Your turning 30”
