Comments Off on It All Happens at Once

Personal posts are my least favorite to write. My hands get sweaty when I start to type. I wonder how the person reading it is going to digest the words. Will it be absorbed the way that I intended? There is often a constant battle in my head of whether to even write at all. I want to write. So… here I am, putting the letters down and getting out of my non personal post rut. I remind myself that I am doing it for myself. Something to look back on, reflect on, and to be grateful and thankful for.

Lately there have been a lot of changes. Some of the changes are so exciting to me while others are likely starting to grow me some grey hairs. There have been three big changes lately that have me feeling good, exhausted, tired, excited, nervous, and one hundred other emotions.

  1. We have to move:

    A month or two ago we found out that we have to move as our landlords are selling. Then we found out last week that they might have a buyer and we can stay. Feeling all the weird emotions about this. We would like to stay, but we also feel weird about not knowing for sure if we will be moving or not.

  2. I am NOT going back to work:

    This is exciting (mostly) as I am committing to focusing solely on my blog and graphic design. I say mostly because I do love the people that I worked with. At the start of the month I signed on with an agency that is going to be helping me with my sponsored posts giving me more time for everything else. My stomach turns as I write this out, even though I have been working away on the blog the past months actually saying I am not going back feels so surreal. A big thank you to all of you who read and support me.

  3. Evelyn is almost One!

    I honestly cannot even believe a year has past (almost). I am starting to plan her first birthday and like everyone of my kids birthday I go back and forth from “something small” to “let’s just go all out”. I am pretty sure the later is going to happen, because I just love planning parties, decorating and creating beautiful events. She still has no teeth and isn’t walking yet, two milestones I am so curious if she will reach before her birthday or not. I’m happy either way, because I feel like once both of those come, we will have a toddler on our hands people.

I am feeling so blessed in this season of life. For everything we have, even if we have to give up the place that we are currently living. A place that I never thought I would ever not want to move out of. It was about a week before we found out that we had to move that I started to feel grateful for it. I have been missing our old home (that we sold) so much… I even accidentally drove “home” to it the other day. When we found out that it was time to move I laughed and said, “Well I guess God was teaching me a lesson about gratefulness there.”

Been feeling so grateful. Among all the other feelings, gratefulness is the feeling that best describes this season.




  • This girl couldn’t be happier to do these matching hair photos together. Who wants to learn this look?
  • What if I told you creating latte art just got easier.....⠀
Because it has! I've been loving my new machine, but have been lacking on the ability to create beautiful latte art. I created a handful of latte art stencils for anyone else like me that just can't seem to get it right. ⠀
Since getting my Nespresso machine I have learnt so much. Not only have I been improving my latte making skills but I have also discovered more about how Nespresso is working towards being as sustainable as possible. Each of their capsules are made of aluminum, which is fully recyclable. Right now there are 51 recycling points across the country, and the number keeps growing. More about their recycling programs and those super cute free printables are up on the blog now.⠀

  • How she’s been asking me to tuck her in, with both babies by her head.
  • Guesssss what! @roxannredekop and I were chatting and we are going to be putting some video hair tutorials together. She’ll be helping me style mine and Sophie’s hair for our matching mom and mini photos and then she’ll teach you how to do it. I loved all your feedback on our first matching mom and mini hair post and I can’t wait to bring even more!
  • Trying to capture some product shots of the @sodastreamcanada FIZZI and this girl has other ideas. She's been getting involved so much with the behind the scenes (and in front of... swipe left) for the blog and it's so fun to see her loving it as much as I do. We introduced the SodaStream FIZZI into our home recently and have been enjoying turning our tap water into sparkling water in a matter of seconds. Curious about how it works? Sophie is giving a mini tutorial in my stories, I think I have a little YouTuber in the making.
I'm so excited to join the @SodaStreamCanada Stream Team this year and to start changing the world through bubbles. Up next, we are working on fun recipes and would love to share all your favorite flavoured water combos. C O M M E N T below what you like to mix into your water and I'll be putting together a blog post, linking your favorite mix back to your Instagram.
