When Hope Feels Lost

Three weeks ago I walked nervously down a hallway to the same room with no windows where, four months earlier, I was told that the baby we had waited 14 long and painful months for no longer had a heartbeat. The same room that I had to call my husband from to tell him that […]

A Princess Party to Remember

Most mama’s know that in the first 5 years of their daughters life a princess birthday party is pretty much inevitable. It’s a natural thing to want to dress up and be a princess for a day and that’s exactly what our oldest daughter (now 7) requested for her 5th birthday! With a 6 week old baby […]

Simple Mini Quiche

Our Christmas gathering with my husbands side of the family happens on Boxing Day and we enjoy a mid-morning brunch together instead of a traditional turkey dinner. This has always been more than okay with me because I’m all about brunch and much prefer to over eat a little earlier in the day than later! This […]

Sugar Cookies

As promised here is the recipe for the sugar cookies featured in Hooray for Valentines Day! These cookies are soft and not too sweet and I’m including an icing recipe for you to frost them with! The recipe is one that was passed down from a friend and I’ve modified it slightly. We really love these cookies […]

Finding the Time to Grieve

I can’t believe that it was almost a month ago that our tiny baby River was born via induced labour, still and without a heartbeat. I had the privilege of carrying him for 17.5 weeks.  My heart and mind are still working to process the loss of a life that we prayed for so often throughout […]

Easy Zucchini, Oat and Berry Muffins

Cozy comfort foods that are relatively easy to make during the cooler months always become a staple around here. I’ve recently started playing with basic muffin recipes and this one was a hit with our kids. (Somehow 18 went missing in 48 hrs!) These muffins are perfect paired with a hot cup of coffee or tea.

Planning a great party (and enjoying the process!)

When the mere sight of a cat produces squeals of joy from your toddler it makes choosing a 2nd birthday theme pretty easy! This recent kitty party was one of the most enjoyable and successful parties that I’ve ever planned.  If you get energized by pouring creativity into an event, love styling tables and enjoy DIY projects […]

The Perfect Nursery

I’m just going to put this out there- I would carry and give birth to 15 more babies simply so I could have the opportunity to design and decorate 15 more nurseries. (In all seriousness, I might actually consider 2 or 3 more if my pregnancies were a lot easier!) Since our recently announced baby #4 […]

Dear Rainbow Baby

For some the journey to parenthood is easy. There are no barriers or significant waiting periods. There is conception, pregnancy and welcoming a child and maybe a few more afterwards. For others the experience looks very different. There is the exciting anticipation of new life, then the sudden heartbreak of loss that follows. The acknowledgement […]
