He likes to move it, move it…

Over the last couple of months, I've been working hard to try and up my photography game. I've been playing around with the manual mode on my phone camera, and with the weather being so awesome lately, I've had tons of opportunities to try and capture some action outs of Q. It helps tons that he likes to move it, move it, as the song says. Sorry if you have it stuck in your head now, but as with … [Read more...]

Signs from Heaven

Sometimes, when we lose someone close to us, it can feel like they are gone forever. Gone are the emails and phone calls, the talks and the visits. They leave a void, some bigger than others, but always present. When my Dad died almost a year and a half ago, my heart broke. Without my Daddy, the first man I ever loved, my forever protector, I had a huge hole in my heart. He was my biggest … [Read more...]

Learn all about RESP’s with Parent Life Network & CST

University education is getting more and more expensive every year. More and more young adults are incurring large amounts of debt to pay for their university educations, and as costs rise, the length of time that it will take to get out from that debt is increasing too.

No siblings, no rivalry, no problems

As an only child, Q only has to worry about sharing the TV and agreeing on shows with my husband and I. No siblings, no rivalry, no problems. Right? Since he will never know the joy of battling and negotiating with a sibling to decide on which show to watch, so we make sure to have him practice his negotiating skills on us when it comes to family Netflix time. It can be hard to agree on … [Read more...]

20 reasons why having an only child is awesome

I often see articles and pieces talking about how wonderful it is to have more than one child, how special sibling relationships are, and how much only children (and the parents of only children) miss out on when they have only one child. Fair enough, I'm sure for some, having 2 or more children is fantastic. I can't personally comment on that, since Q is an only child and will remain one. So I … [Read more...]

Songs to make you smile 2 – Music Monday 

I am not sure how the weather has been where you are, but here it has been gorgeous. Spring has truly arrived and the weather has been pretty much perfect, if not occasionally a bit warm, for my daily morning walks. This week has been pretty stressful for me, and let me tell you, stress and  CRPS are not a good combination. As a result, I've been dealing with some really high … [Read more...]

Spring has arrived

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been walking pretty much daily , taking my son to and from school and then walking around the track. It is so beautiful up here, tons of flowers, trees, lots of nature and bugs to see. My phone has an absolutely fantastic camera, and while using auto mode generally gets me great shots, I figure that as someone who loves to take pictures, it is well past time … [Read more...]

Supporting One Girl Can for their #IWant2Be Fundraiser – Event listing 

   For as long as I can remember, I have loved to read. I wrote stories and poems, journals and notes to friends. I've always had a curiosity and desire to learn, and I cannot imagine what life would be like without those opportunities. For some girls, though, this desire to learn and explore can actually put their lives into danger. Imagine how awful that would be! Enter One Girl … [Read more...]
