With the arrival of warmer temps (finally!), we’ve been spending tons of time outdoors poolside, and savouring a slower, simpler pace of life outside of hockey season. We’re loving dining al fresco and firing up the grill to keep meals quick and easy.
We recently returned from our very 1st All-Inclusive vacay as a family of six! Our destination – the glorious Punta Cana with a 7 day stay at the highly recommended, luxurious Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. We got back to Toronto with ice storms and slush, so you could say we’re missing the warmth and sunshine somethin’ fierce! All Inclusive vacations for a family of
Spring has sprung and so have the commitments in our calendar. I always find Spring such a celebration-filled time. I love having my birthday in Spring, and its also the season we became parents for the first time to our son Brody. We also had all four kids` baptisms in the Springtime – the season of renewal and rebirth. Like us, you probably have
Let’s face it, hair care for busy Moms is tough in the best of times, add to it the havoc cold, dry Winter air wreaks on our locks, and well, it can seem like a lot of effort to keep our tresses healthy until warmer weather returns.

I always find the end/beginning of the year is such a reflective time – what’s happened over the
Happy New Year, guys! We had our usual seafood dinner, dance parties and kiddy countdown last night, and the struggle to make it to midnight was real. Andrew woke up 20 seconds before midnight, we did a quick toast and went to bed. Low key, a little crazy, a lot of loud, and kinda how we roll most days. Today was finally less silly cold

I’m at this stage in my blogging journey where I’m focusing on reflecting who we are, what our core values entail, and how to build those into the work I put out and the partnerships we align with. Well, we are pretty proud Canadians, who believe in living with a spirit of generosity and kindness, and keeping our family values central to all we do.
It is my hope, that even through what can become the hustle and bustle, over-doing, magic-making of the holidays, remembering the reason for the season will be at the heart of our family time. On November 17th, SONY Pictures Animation releases a heart-warming film about the greatest story ever told – the very first Christmas. The cast is “star”-studded, including Patricia Heaton, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler
