Why I’m Shopping Small This Christmas

It’s not quite December yet but the holiday season is already upon us! We took Chayton to the Enchant Christmas Light Maze and Market the other day and he was absolutely mesmerized by the twinkling beauty (and warm cup of hot chocolate that he got at the end!). We all know that the holiday season…

3 Reasons Why Motherhood Awakens the Dreamer Within

Guest Post by Genicca Whitney I have been so blessed to have met a handful of women who share the same passion for motherhood, but have not forgotten who they are as an individual, in the process. I admire these kind of women. These are the women who have not succumb to the status-quo of…

Babymoon in Whistler

It’s been two full years since Chris and I have gone away alone, without the baby! But with only ten weeks (or so) left to go until Baby# 2 makes her appearance, we packed our bags and took the Jeep on a little road trip to one of our favourite local getaways, Whistler. If you…

Beautiful Girl, YOU can change the world

Looking for an inspiring Christmas gift for the world changing woman or girl in your life?   I love giving gifts with purpose. This year there are a few lucky ladies on my list who will be receiving The Pink Box, because I want to continuously equip them with the positive messaging that reminds them…

Dear Divided America

This isn’t a post about politics. This isn’t a post about who won the recent 2016 United States Election. This isn’t even a commentary about how I view the results. This is about the responses I’ve seen as everyone is processing the wave of social change that comes with a new President and the next…

27 Week Bump Update

Well, just like that its the third trimester! Honestly, this pregnancy is absolutely flying by and I can’t believe we’ll be meeting our baby girl in approximately 12 more weeks. I’m definitely feeling this little one’s growth since I “popped” at the 6 month mark. Bending down and picking up the constant piles of Chayton’s…

My journey to Minimalism

My husband will laugh when he reads this. I’m not naturally a minimalist and by no means have I become one. As with all things, I’m a work in progress. But I aspire to one day arrive at a place where I live with only what I need and love, nothing more. My husband is…

24 Week Bump and thankful reflections

I hope you all enjoyed your fill of juicy turkey and pumpkin pie! Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays, not just for the food but also the symbolism. As I spent the weekend with family, I also took the time to reflect on all the blessings we have been given this year. We had…

Passport 2 Freedom

Fall fashion! We all love it! But as a Summer girl at heart, I’m always seeking out new and creative ways to extend the life of my Summer wardrobe while still keeping things cozy for Fall. Because we’ve had such a beautiful Indian summer the last few weeks, dressing for early autumn has been fairly…

The Pink Box

Full Disclosure, I am not a fan of pink. Even when I was a little girl, I always preferred purple over pink (as if those are the only choices for girls), it just wasn’t something that I could really get behind. However, when my good friend Katie Zeppieri, Founder and Creative Director of Girl Talk Empowerment…
