Another edit on this photo because it was just to magical to look at only once.  I do wish the little fuzzies flying off were a bit more sharp so something I gotta work on.

This morning on my train ride into work I ended up listening to this and this – both fed my souullll lol.  #BeAGoodPerson and #BeABossB!tch

The one about random thoughts

Thursday is about random thoughts.  And that’s what this post is all about!

I started reading this book and then I realized I would be continuing on the standard north american lifestyle for the next 30 some odd years.

I have big dreams and I need to really bring them to fruition.

Why do I always have a huge fine on my library card

I literally felt like I was running an after daycare daycare today ;P

I have a few DIYs to complete before Miss S’s bday party this weekend (and why am I procrastinating and watching #KUWTK)

The Good Days


Something I try and keep at the forefront of my mind is these days will not be here forever. (Especially when it comes to parenting a little).  So I just gotta keep going, forgive myself for the craziness and makes sure my intentions get re-aligned after the less than optimal days.

What do you guys think of the quotes on this print.  

The last winter storm


Mackage | Mini Backpack 

Ahh famous last words for us Canadians, who technically don’t put their winter coats away until some time in May.
We had a winter storm which was kind of like a scene from Day After Tomorrow, you know where everything freezes in a mater of minutes.  As scary as that scene was in the movie, it makes for beautiful pictures.







I’ve recently updated my Etsy shop and added a few listings (that were from the #VaughanOfAKind show) but didn’t get a chance to do so earlier.  You can check them out here, here and here.  


#SpringBucketList 2016


As I am writing this, it’s snowing outside.   Its falling so gently and doesn’t look like much as it floats down from the heavens.  But then you look at the ground and you can’t believe that it’s sticking to the ground, then 15 minutes later you look outside again, and then again 1 hour later – and before you know it there is 30cm of snow out there and our snowblower doesn’t have any gas in it!

As mentioned here, I am done with winter.  I figured I’d start a #SpringBucketList in hopes that this snow melts FAST and the Sun comes out of hiding.

Vastness [Dec 31st 2015]


I cannot believe we are entering 2016…#JawDrop. It’s true what they say about life after kids, the days are long but the years fly by.  That said, the mister and I have been in the throws of dealing with Miss S in what seems like the terrible twos (even though she’s only 1).  She answers “no” or “nope” A LOT, started saying “mine” and even fake cries!   It’s hard but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love it.

Aside from that, took some time out to write my New Years Resolutions!   I am try to keep them down to 3 or 4 thoughts and this coming year they are around fostering good relationships and changing my ideas about my food intake and decluttering and living more simply.

Happy New Year!
