Gratitude & Fullfillment

Enchanted with Europe: Quick Travel Update

I didn’t have a chance to post a blog last week because of all the fun Tim and I were having on our trip to Europe and we’re still travelling but I wanted to sit down for a minute to write out a few things before heading out with the family (we’re in Florida at Disney World now!!!). Read More…

Reliving the Dream

Next week at this time I will be visiting London and Paris!! I can hardly believe it.

Kid Approved Carrot Cauliflower Muffins

Finishing Our Dream Home

Years ago, Tim and I lived in a townhouse in Halifax with Logan when he was a baby. We loved dreaming up our ideal home and promised that one day we would live in it. When we decided to move out of the townhouse, we designed and built our dream house. At the time, we…

Records, Regrets and Resolutions
