I am crazy excited to finally — officially! — share the news about my collaboration with The Sleep Shirt! As you may know, The Sleep Shirt is my favourite sleep brand.

They’re the kind of high-quality sleepwear that every woman should own — a worthwhile investment for your sleepwear wardrobe! The Monika Hibbs

Meet the Almond-Growing Smith Family

September 13, 2017

READ MORE

Hello, everyone! I’m so pleased to take today’s post in a little bit of a different direction by featuring an interview with a friend of mine. A couple months ago, we began a partnership with Almond Breeze. (Have you seen our frozen lemon meringue bar, walnut zucchini loaf, or end-of-summer tomato soup recipes yet?) As I connected the dots, I realized my friend Alexandria Smith lives on an almond orchard that’s a part of the Blue Diamond collective! Once I figured that out,

Today, I’m sharing a few photos from our latest partnership with Caitlin Wilson. Her new tabletop collection is just gorgeous.

I have been a big fan of Caitlin Wilson for years – ever since I discovered her classic gold polka dot pillows years ago! I love her classic, timeless designs and playful pops of colour. One of my favourite aspects of this new collection is the

When Zespri Kiwifruit approached us about a possible partnership (a.k.a.  girls’ brunch!!), I was thrilled! We’ve been eating Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit for a long time. Troy discovered them at a local store, and they quickly became a favourite easy-to-eat snack around our house. The SunGold kiwifruit is sweeter than a green kiwifruit, making them great for my kids. We eat them often so this partnership felt like a great fit! We brainstormed a variety of fun event ideas to share how versatile Zespri SunGold

Mini zucchini loaves are the perfect little way to use up some of those beautiful zucchinis that are abundant at the local farmer’s market right now. We made a healthier version by using whole wheat flour, coconut oil, and unrefined sugar. They’re even dairy-free, thanks to Almond Breeze® almond beverage! Our MH team is big fans of Almond Breeze® and love to use it in our daily recipes! It’s made with California almonds that come straight from the Blue Diamond Growers cooperative, which has been

Celebrating Sweet Lillya’s Church Dedication

August 25, 2017

READ MORE

On a bright, beautiful Sunday afternoon, we hosted a very special long table meal in our backyard to celebrate the church dedication of our little Lillya Grace. Hosting a long-table dinner in our backyard is something I wanted to do since we started building our house, and this one did not disappoint! I cannot tell you how many times my eyes welled up with tears when I looked around the table at our rich heritage of family and friends. Is there anything better
