End Summer with 30 Days of Beauty


Mid-August? How did that happen??? So much has happened this summer already that I don’t even know where to start. We sold our house and are waiting to move into a rental house until our new house is built. In the meantime, we are camping for the month of August. Yes, that’s right… we’re living [...]

Mom, Don’t Read This!


Have you ever been humiliated online? I have. Autocorrect is NOT my friend. There was the time my phone autocorrected a name and I sent an email to someone I barely know and called him Mutdick.

Home is Where the Heart Is…

So it’s going back to [...]

Moving Back(wards)

see you soon green road sign

You know the saying, “All good things must come to an end?” Well that sort of describes this week for me. If you know me personally, you know that our family moved to Cape Breton Island five years ago. I grew up in Cape Breton. Half of my family is in Cape Breton. My heart [...]
