I know you're a modern mom who cares about her family, has a great sense of style and loves to have fun. We already have so much in common. Don't miss a post and be sure to sign up for blog updates!
In this fast-paced world, isn’t it wonderful when your children do or say something that causes you to pause and reflect on the innocence and sweetness of their youth?
It’s been over a week and my plants haven’t died yet, so I guess I’m ok to go ahead and write this post!
The other day I had a few extra minutes while I was running errands, so I stopped into a local flower store to have a look around.
The store had beautiful arrangements and fall
Hi, friends! Just a short post today to ask you all for a favor. I’m asking you to take one minute out of your day to sign this electronic petition which calls on Ottawa to invest $10 million dollars into ovarian cancer funding.
When it comes to research dollars for women’s cancers, breast cancer leads the way, while ovarian cancer lags far behind.
It started around the age of 8. It was a cold and snowy morning and I asked the kids to put on their snow pants and get ready for school. My daughter got dressed and looked in the mirror, somewhat dismayed. “I don’t want to wear these to school; they make me look fat.”
Last month, I saw my dermatologist and received some concerning news. After carefully surveying my skin, she paused when she found a mole on the side of my face near my ear. She asked me if I had ever noticed it before, noting that it would be difficult to see while looking in a mirror. My husband said it had been there for as long as he’d known me.
I can still remember leaving a note in my mother’s bathroom informing her I got my period. I don’t know why I was so embarrassed to tell her in person. I guess, despite having two older sisters, we just didn’t talk about it much back then. And I don’t think we were the only ones.
Why, oh why, do I stop running? Getting back into shape is SO HARD. You know what I mean?
It happens so quickly…we give ourselves one or two days off because, well, life gets in the way. Before you know it, weeks have gone by and we’ve lost our running mo-jo!
I finally found one. Standing in line at the post office, I saw a small green heart sitting on the counter staring up at me.
I’d heard of the Peyton Heart Project and their efforts to spread small knitted hearts around the world, but I hadn’t been lucky enough to see one yet.
There is an ad campaign that’s garnering a lot of attention these days. And I just want to say “Bravo!” to Ovarian Cancer Canada for coming up with a smart, funny and rather cheeky advertisement to create awareness for an under-recognized disease.
The ad encourages women to have the “Ladyballs” to disagree with a male colleague, to ask a guy out on a date, etc. You get the idea. It states that “women have balls too, and they’re at risk.”
If you haven’t seen the TV version of the ad, you can watch it here.
It’s been about a month, but I think I’m finally getting the hang of using my Vitamix. You see, this super-duper blender and I have had some “issues”… mainly because I take after my mom and have trouble following directions when cooking. Doesn’t anyone else like to wing it??
Seriously, there are a few good things to know if you are considering getting this blender or if you are a newbie like me.
