April Blogging Challenge Day 16: Something That Makes Me Awesome

When I first saw this prompt, I wasn't sure if I'd write about it.  To be honest, it kind of created a bit of anxiety in me.  I mean, I can rattle off what makes every one of my kids awesome.  I can tell you why my husband is awesome and why my brother and… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 16: Something That Makes Me Awesome

April Blogging Challenge Day 15: Something I’m Looking Forward To

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much the past few days - we've been hit by bug after bug.  Everyone ended up coming down with the flu - including Adrien (though his was pretty tame).  Elliot got hit the hardest and we actually ended up going to the doctor's this weekend because he was… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 15: Something I’m Looking Forward To

April Blogging Challenge Day 12: My Favourite Colour

When I think about my favourite colour, it's largely contextual.  I mean, if we're talking about clothing, I generally opt for more neutral colours (blacks, whites, greys).  However, I *have* been branching out of my comfort zone and dipping my toes (so to speak) into the world of purples and I must say that it… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 12: My Favourite Colour

April Blogging Challenge Day 11: My Handwriting [+ a peek at my bullet journal!]

This is an interesting prompt!  I really enjoy seeing how other write and am always amazed at how pretty some peoples' calligraphy can be!  My everyday writing isn't super beautiful, but it's clear and has some nice elements that haven't changed since my high school years which makes it recognizable!  What do you notice? Now,… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 11: My Handwriting [+ a peek at my bullet journal!]

April Blogging Challenge Day 9: My Favourite Quote

Forgive me for posting the quote in French first, but I feel like the English translations don't do the original text justice.  This quote comes from one of my favourite books: The Little Prince (a lovely short book that is filled with metaphors and little bits of wisdom).  The official English translation goes as follows:… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 9: My Favourite Quote

April Blogging Challenge Day 7: If I Had A Superpower

You know it's funny.  If this prompt had been a few days before today or a few days after today, my answer would have probably been quite different.  I remember playing around with a few ideas when I first saw it all of which seemed really quite amusing. But last night was a really bad… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 7: If I Had A Superpower

April Blogging Challenge Day 6: Three Ways To Win My Heart

My heart has already been won.  Though I'd love to recount the story of how my husband and I started dating when we were both still in university, I'll save his sanity just this once.  Instead of writing of the three ways to win my heart, I'll concentrate on three of the reasons he has… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 6: Three Ways To Win My Heart
