Before our kids came around, Troy and I loved jetting away on vacations all over the world. And now that our family has grown to include Liam and Lilly, we are passionate about making opportunities to explore all kinds of places with them. Traveling with kids, well, it’s a lot of work! But, in my opinion, the rewards far outweigh the challenges. And it turns out we aren’t alone: According to a recent study by American Express, more than 95% of Canadians think

Have you gotten your gingham fix this summer yet? I don’t know about you, but my closet is packed full of it – and I love it!

Has anyone else started their spring cleaning yet? I decided to start by tackling my pantry first. If your pantry is anything like mine, it gets super cluttered quickly. Things get lost so easily.
