Candles Creating Opportunity

Prosperity Candle It’s a daily scene in our home. The lights are dim, cooling fan softly blowing near the window in his room, as my little boy snuggles deeper into the cove of my neck and we rock together to the gentle way of our joint heartbeats. He’s growing so quickly these days and soon…

Second Trimester Bump Style

As I write this I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and I can’t believe we are almost half-way there! While the first trimester seemed to last forever (thanks, morning sickness…), the second trimester is flying by. If it weren’t for the soft flutters that I feel against my womb in the early morning and late…

Our first home: a look back 

Although we moved out three weeks ago, today is the first day under new ownership for our tiny (former) home. It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to the home that built us; where we started our friendship, had our first kiss, said our marriage vows and gave birth to our baby. So much has happened here and…

First Trimester Update

Did you hear the news? We brought a little someone back from Nazareth and we are absolutely thrilled about it! We knew we wanted another baby and a sibling for Chayton. So as soon as Chayton had his first birthday, baby fever was on! But with our trip coming up, we also knew that it…

My favourite part of Ireland

The Skellig Coast Rural, wild, unspoilt, rich in history and ready for adventure: just a few of the reasons why the Skellig Coast on the Ring of Kerry was my favourite part of Ireland! After a very comfortable and rejuvenating sleep in our little apartment at the Westcove Farmhouse and Bakery, we set out to explore…

Visiting The Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way

“Which country is on the top of your list for places to visit next?” He asked. I sighed. For a travel lover like myself, this is my favourite type of question but not after midnight when I’ve already been awake thirty hours attending to a birth. With a sleepy yawn, and some slight annoyance, I…

Our trip to Ireland, Part One.

Ah. It feels good to be back on the blog. After three weeks out of country and away from my desk, I’ve finally had a moment to brew a cup of tea and begin to share the stories and photos of all that we have seen. But where to start? How to even begin to…

Growing Compassion: Motherhood Musings + A Giveaway

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” —Maya Angelou It is officially Spring time! Chris and I have decided that this is the year for us to close the chapter on our sweet tiny home and upgrade into a…

One Girl Can

Little known fact about me: my university education was focused on teaching secondary school education. I absolutely love teaching young people in the classroom and witnessing their world open up as they expand their dreams and grow their confidence and capabilities. It is because of this that I firmly believe there are few things in…

Eco Fashion Week Edition 10: Day 2

Back at it again for Day 2 of Eco Fashion Week! My look for this day was all inspired by a boho- glam, Spring Goddess vibe! I loved the Elle Playsuit from Maccs- The Label, a newly launched collection by Vancouver designer, Tessa Lindsay Garcia of Shop Maccs and Cake for Breakfast. I’ve long adored this…
