This sweet curly haired, blue eyed girl that made me a mama is starting preschool this September (cue the ugly cry)!! I am so excited for her to start this next chapter in her life, but part of me isn’t ready to share her with anyone else. She is bright and beautiful, bold and brave, strong and kind. She is intelligent beyond her years, up for any challenge and loves with her whole heart. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her <3
I’m a little late posting this.. actually I wasn’t going to post it at all. I had these big plans for this blog post of our weekend away at Cultus Lake, but when we got home I realized the few photos I had were taken on my phone. For whatever reason I have this idea in my mind that the photos I share need to be perfect, great quality, staged photos if you will when really that’s not my life!
As parents we are constantly trying to capture our children’s most beautiful moments. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of a family in the area so I tend to share our kid’s milestones and most beautiful moments on Instagram. I had an empty wall in the kids play room that I was hoping to add a DIY project to and what better way then to showcase these special pictures!
I have a killer sweet tooth. I’m positive it’s hereditary, because both my mom and sister suffer from the same condition. Hearing the words chocolate, ice cream, doughnuts, pie… you catch my drift. I must have it! The other night I “jokingly” asked my husband if he knew of a service that delivered ice cream, because well.. that was all I could think about! And with his side eye look I knew he understood what I meant, but he wasn’t having it. Darn. LOL!
Out are the days of throwing together a couple outfits, the basic necessities and in the car we go now that we have two little ones. We’ve been on quite a few road trips to the Okanagan and surrounding areas of the West Coast since we’ve had our kids and with the number of times we have had to pull over because of a big poopy mess, forgotten something, and had to run into the closest store, it’s safe to say I’ve learned to make a list and pack well before heading out the door.
