Bike Rides and Yellow Leaves [just storytelling]

Trying to make the best out of the nicer days we have left this season, the kids and I went for a bike ride this week. It’s been 6 months since I went back to work full time, and after being a stay at home parent for 3 years, a part of me, a big…

Flower Crowns and Smoky Days

It’s been a smoky couple of days in the city. The smoke from the forest fires in the province that neighbors us has blown over, and I’m sad for the circumstances, but trying to find the silver lining. At a new moon circle I attended last week, the ceremony started off with the burning of…

DIY Backyard Bouquets [ simple and beautiful kids activity]

It’s been raining a lot the past couple of weeks, and you can tell the plants are happy for it. Every year around this time, our backyard flowers begin to bloom, and making backyard bouquets is something I have fallen in love with. I am so grateful for the previous owners of our home – a…

CottonTail Corner ; A spontaneous Evening Adventure

Did you know there is a nude beach in Edmonton? Yep, neither did I. OK, technically, this beach is just outside of Edmonton, but it’s close enough haha. You gotta love this city though! There are so many little hidden spots and adventures, and every time we decide to go explore, we find something new….

Bubbles and Baby Bums

A lot of our summer days so far, have been spent simply in our backyard. The  kids splash and play in their little pool, we sit in the shade of our tree. I enjoy my pergola, we have snacks. Penelope points out the airplanes that fly by, Oliver tries to eat grass, and Una supervises….

A lot of firsts for the first of the month

Happy new month! The year is going by so quickly, my little family of four feels like the normal I’ve had my entire life, and my little guy is already half way to a year. It’s moving faster than I can keep up with; so many firsts, so many moments, so many memories. We just…

Looking for corny in my life.

One of my favorite romantic comedies of all time is “The Holiday”. I’ve watched is so many times, and I just loooovvve it! Anyone else? One of my favorite lines in the movie is when Iris receives a corsage from Arthur Abbott (who is just the most charming character by the way), and she says “I…

We’ve Been Walking…

I haven’t written much lately. A little bit is me over thinking about what I want to write about (I have a lot of half written posts, ha!), but mainly it’s because I’ve been outside… Spring is officially here, and we’re taking full advantage of it. The days are longer and warmer, and it’s feels like…

Time through Walks on a Trail

We live 6 houses away from a walking trail. When we bought our house, we didn’t know the trail was there, but it quickly became one of my favorite things about living where we do. The trail is a few kilometers long, and extends to a large open field before the highway. Over the years, that…
