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!
Do you ever find yourself in a recipe rut – making the same meals for your family over and over, week after week? At our house, it’s pretty predictable. Some form of chicken, beef, ground turkey, pork and salmon are pretty much in a weekly rotation.
As a parent, it may be difficult to watch your child enter into a romantic relationship. It’s definitely a signal they are maturing and becoming more sexually aware. It’s ok, and completely normal, if this feels a little weird to you. After all, this is your baby!!
*An update to this post: We are now living back home in Canada, and it is so wonderful to see poppies everywhere leading up to Remembrance Day.
I think there is something truly special about three sisters. I came from a family of three sisters, and then as luck would have it, I ended up having three daughters! When I moved to Calgary, Alberta I became enthralled with a trio of peaks near Canmore known as the Three Sisters.
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.
Do your kids roll their eyes and complain when they find out you just opened your own account on Instagram, Snapchat or VSCO?
No doubt you’re feeling pretty proud and tech-savvy because you finally figured out what a hashtag is, how to send and receive a snap, or add a filter that gives you bunny ears or a flower crown? At least I know I was!
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.”
A friend of mine was recently approached by her 16-year-old son with an interesting request – to take his girlfriend on vacation with them this summer. They were planning a 10-hour road trip, followed by a week of camping; it wasn’t going to be expensive and far from luxurious. He wanted to know if she could sleep in the extra twin bunk in their trailer and just “hang” with them for a week at the lake.
When it comes to gift giving for teens and tweens, I tend to lean towards practical gifts, like a gift card to a store that you know they love. In recent years, we’ve also enjoyed giving experiences to special friends – like tickets to a concert or taking a friend to an attraction or theme park.
