Happy 2017 lovely readers! I know I've been silent for far too long, but believe me when I say it was with good reason! VERY good reason! Hubby and I just enjoyed our very first vacation together without kids, celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary! We enjoyed a FULL week away- in New Orleans and on a cruise to the Yucatan in Mexico. I was bursting to share with everyone, but I knew I had to wait until our return to do so. As a blogger, I share a lot of my personal life with the world. Read more [...]

One thing I really love about Netflix's original content (and being a representative blogger for them) is their tendency to feature strong, independent and (mostly) relatable female characters. We hear so much about how there aren't enough roles for REAL women out there aside from the 2-dimensional characters we see in so many popular films and television. There is also the awesome bonus that shows like Jessica Jones will hire all-female directors for its second season, and Orange is the New Black  Read more [...]

It's been a while since I've done a book review on the blog, but that's mostly because I haven't read anything that I felt strongly enough about to share (good or bad) in a long time. That doesn't mean that I'm not still the same bookworm I always have been! Some things just don't change. Me Before You from Jojo Moyes is one of those books I've had on my list since it came out. For some reason, I've read several of her other books but not this one as yet. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law LOVED Read more [...]

Don’t Walk Away From Me…

The last week of April was a BIG week in our house. My son, just shy of being 19 months old, finally got up on his two feet and walked. An early crawler, like his sister, he's been on the move since he was 7 months old. Also like his sister, he started pulling up to standing long before his first birthday but decided that walking just wasn't for him. We've been trying to encourage him to stand and walk- using a walker or holding our hands. We did everything we could think of to get him to just Read more [...]

Those of you who follow my social media accounts know that last month Hubby and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit lovely Kittery, Maine. It was a a welcome reprieve from the stress of our Election Campaign, tax season, and the interminable winter here, in Montreal. In fact, it was our first time getting away as a couple SINCE OUR HONEYMOON 5 years ago! That's right- we had not been away for even a night, just the two of us, in 5 years! I suppose that's what happens when you have babies and Read more [...]

I've said it before, and I'll say it forever: books are sacred and special in our house. Now that she has a little brother to share her Mommy and Daddy with, story time before bed has become an even more special and important time for our daughter. It's the time that we get to cuddle in her big girl bed, snuggled under the covers and have time that's just for US. Yes, we have the classics, new and old, to choose from, but we also love to discover new and hidden gems to add to our repertoire. Little Read more [...]
