A Baby Shower for Super Moms and Soon-to-be Siblings

Every Thursday afternoon I host a playgroup for a group of mom friends.  It has been great through these long winter months to have this group of mothers and their little ones come over for play, snacks, tea, gossip and complete chaos. Quite amazingly, all six of these moms who…

Toronto and The Chelsea Hotel Serve Up a Winning Weekend

I recently embarked on a solo parenting weekend with my kids in Toronto. I was inspired to go because the university national volleyball championships were taking place at Ryerson University and I was hoping to attend and cheer on my old team, the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds. I played…

Keep Your Family Healthy with the Help of CANImmunize

Ottawa’s Top Sugar Bush Destinations

It’s that time of year…sugar bush season is upon us! The weather will start to warm (hopefully) and the snow will start to melt (eventually) and that maple tree sap will start to flow. Where the sap flows, the syrup will follow and that means pancakes…

The Best Thing to Bring a New Mom, and Where to Find It

Feeling Challenged and Inspired with The Dailey Method

I am half way through a 30 day blogger challenge with The Dailey Method, and I can tell you I am already feeling a difference. As I sit here writing, I am constantly trying to keep my deep core engaged, my back long, and my shoulders back. Back in January…
