April Blogging Challenge Day 5: Home

Home. Home is here. Here in Québec, Canada, in a suburb of Montréal, on a small, quiet street of seven houses. Home is here, the place where I grew my four beautiful children inside of me, the place where our family grew from being just a couple to being a family of six. Home is… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 5: Home

April Blogging Challenge Day 4: Something That Makes Me Happy

You know, for today's prompt, I'm going to steer away from the obvious answer.  My family makes me happy, there's no question in that.  Honestly, I could write a whole novel on the subject, but I feel like being a bit quirky with today's theme.  Instead of talking about one thing that makes me really… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 4: Something That Makes Me Happy

April Blogging Challenge Day 3: Learning to Say Yes

Fair warning: I changed the prompt of today's #behappychallenge.  But don't worry, it is still very appropriate considering the hashtag. One thing I've been working on for most of my life is learning to say "no".  It's something I have a lot of trouble with and sometimes I'll commit to something even though I don't… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 3: Learning to Say Yes

April Blogging Challenge Day 2: Morning Routine

Of… Continue reading April Blogging Challenge Day 2: Morning Routine

Lunchpiration (March 30th 2019)

Ten Thought Tuesday

Ten Thought Tuesday: March 26th 2019

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  Here's what's on my mind today. I had a really rough day yesterday (I'll probably be writing about it soon).  Today, however, I'm doing a lot better and it feels great. I ended up sewing another bento bag last week using a different pattern.  I am… Continue reading Ten Thought Tuesday: March 26th 2019
