This party was put together super […]

Six months pregnant with Sophie and I started to realize that I could no longer read the TV guide as clearly as I once used to. Not admitting to myself that I might have vision difficulties I assumed our TV was just getting older and the screen was harder to read. Welp, it continued to […]

Whelp, life isn’t always that simple. After wearing and rocking glasses for a couple years I decided to start playing […]

For two days we explored the Sunshine Coast, staying in Gibsons and then heading down to Sechelt. We walked onto BC Ferries and were ready for an adventure, travelling around with BC Transit for their […]

Harrison Hot Springs is one of my favourite ‘close to home’ destinations. We go there for camping, date nights, beach play, birthday celebrations and most recently on a girls fishing trip.  We made the night of it and decided to head out the day before to Harrison to enjoy dinner and a relaxing night in […]

Before we left for Mexico this Spring we went into IRIS to check out their new sunglass styles. I wanted to get a pair that I didn’t have prescription lenses so that I had something to wear when I have my contacts in. My husband was interested in getting a new style and the kids […]
