I can’t believe I am in my third trimester!!! It’s officially 28 weeks into my pregnancy, which means we have less than 12 weeks left until we meet our little peanut (how is this possible?!).

Spring Time!

Spring Time!

Even though it is still pretty cold where we live (hello, Canada!), I was tired of the winter decor we had all over the house, so over the past few weeks I’ve been updating our house with some new decor.

2018 Resolutions

2018 just FEELS like a good year – yknow? As 2017 was coming to an end, I just had this overwhelming feeling that 2018 was going to be the best year for Pete and I. The past few years have been a complete rollercoaster – the passing of my dad, purchasing our first home, the passing of my uncle 4 months later, meeting our godson for the first time, celebrating 1 year in our house with a totally flooded basement… and all the other highs and lows in between.

We want to start 2018 off on the right foot – and this always feels like the best time to do it. Fresh year, fresh start.
