Moving into our home 5 years ago, I knew we would be here for some time. I always felt that because it’s a rental I wouldn’t want to make it homey because we will be leaving. That being said. We decided this will be our last rental before we purchase a home. We rent a little two bedroom basement suite & our walls are still bare for the most part! I’ve always admired gallery photo walls. I wanted to make one of my own. Specifically on the bare wall in our room above the ledge. I discovered this really cool app called Mixtiles. Mixtiles syncs directly with your phone’s camera roll to quickly and easily order high-quality prints that come in less than a week. And they always have free shipping!Read More
I love a good blog survey. I always click over to read when I see other bloggers do them because it’s fun to learn more about people outside of the normal stuff we post.

As a vegan of 1.5 years I still consider myself new to the lifestyle. I am by no means a professional. I still struggle to know what veggies I should be eating daily. I 100% do NOT eat enough vegetables. One thing I will say is I am not a responsible nutritional vegan. I take my multivitamin & try to have a balanced day of veggies, fruit & proteinRead More
Find 5 ways to the cold weather and not see it simply as the gloomy, wet, cold Autumn & Winter.
For years I’ve only really appreciated and celebrated the arrival of Autumn, I feel like Autumn is the season, besides Spring time that we actually acknowledge that nature around us is changing, going to “sleep” and therefore our bodies, too, are undergoing some type of transformation. This is why I think we should indeed find beautiful ways to welcome the cold weather and not simply see it as another day on the calendar.Read More

When my son was a few months old, and I was deep in the midst of sleep-deprivation & “mommy fog”. Lucas was still sleeping a lot better than most newborns. I would only have to get up once, but most of the time twice or three times for 3 months. That being said, I don’t do well on broken sleep & I cried. A lot. Lucas was a good sleeper relativity early. We think it’s because of his weight! He’s always been in the 97th percentile. When he finally did start sleeping well, I discovered something — he could sleep through the night, but I couldn’t! Suddenly, I was the one waking up multiple times each night, unable to fall back asleep, while my son slept peacefully in his crib. I would constantly check the video monitor each time I woke up.Read More
