In early 2015 I shared our plans for what we wanted to accomplish that year. The list wasn’t too long…it also wasn’t too short. You know, somewhere happily in between. Overall it was a pretty good year for house projects but, as always, not everything was finished 😦 Some of the items on the list were… Continue reading House Update and What’s on Tap 2015 to 2016 Edition: Catching Up!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you have special plans for the day? An annual tradition of some sort? I would love to hear about how you celebrate the day. We’re not really into Valentine’s Day with chocolates and roses and extra declarations of love. Although AB received some jujubes in his lunch as my gift to… Continue reading From Date Moments to Date Weekends: sharing how we stay connected
NOTE: I wrote this post months and months ago and posted it before the storm season was really underway. The end of August and September have brought a very active storm season to the Caribbean and parts of the US. Hurricane Irma hit both Antigua and Barbuda in September 2017. Antigua is fine. Barbuda is… Continue reading Travel Files: Antigua, the first time, December 2014

We’re ringing the new year in with my in-laws. Not much snow this year but lots of ice so we’re in good company as we nestle in with the woods around us. Wherever you are, I wish you all good things for 2016.
I started the year off with a few posts..which I honestly forgot that I’d written. 2015 was a great year and a busy year so I thought it would be worthwhile to recap my ‘intentions’ from a January post and see how I did…and so here we go! A BAD HABIT I’M GOING TO BREAK… Continue reading The year that was…2015 in review
I’ve been quite absent from this space in 2015…nothing new there 🙂 Finishing grad work, enjoying time with my amazing godchild, family, friends, work….all good things to keep me busy. I do have some thoughts in the works to help me create a space for this blog in my life and more of my life… Continue reading Happy Holidays
When we started renovating the kitchen in 2013, we had no idea how long things would actually take. Which is why, we are FINALLY getting around to installing the bulkheads that will connect the cabinets to the ceiling and installing toe-kicks and some final cover panels. At the end of this weekend we will, of… Continue reading Gratitude, Thy Names are….
Today is the final day of a long weekend for most of us here in Canada. In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario it’s Family Day. In Prince Edward Island it’s Islander Day. And Manitoba is celebrating Louis Riel Day today. All of these days are about celebrating who we are, where we come from and who we share our… Continue reading Family Day….
Happy Valentine’s Day..hope you’re loving something today. This quote brought me right back to my childhood with Sharon, Lois & Bram signing this song. Did you know them? They were amazing! Lois no longer performs but Sharon & Bram are still going strong. My twin sister and I used to sing Skinnamarik AT my parents… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day
