Macy’s First Time Exploring Snow

To say that we’ve become obsessed dog parents wouldn’t be a lie. We’ve been spoiling this sweet girl since the day she’s come home with us. And since it’s become Winter and snowing we’ve been itching to get her into the snow. But sort of hesitated also because well we were frankly afraid of her running off on us and saying “See yah later” while we watch her bolt out of sight forever…

Creating a vision board with your kids

This morning, I woke up with this feeling of inspiration. It was awesome after the Holiday break and worried of coming back into work not having any motivation. The only problem was that I woke up with a million ideas and really not sure how to handle them all. I wanted to dig deep first with all of these ideas knowing that it was too much!

Amazon Home Decor Under $100

This is not a sponsored post. I have been surging through creative ways finding deals on home decor because lets face it, we are all broke after the Holidays. But it’s been fun imaging different pieces together and I never really realized how awesome Amazon home decor is. I merely thought of Amazon for baby gear, electronics and random finds. Never would I think that I would find all of these goodies for $100 and under.

Highlights From 2019 | A Year In Review

Have you ever had a year that you just didn’t want to end? The year was just so good to us that I’m really sad to see it go. We’ve had some amazing times and grew so much over 2019, all of us.

We’ve managed to excel in ways we didnt think were possible and growing this blogging buisness into a family affair continues to grow. It was just such an amazing year for us we really hope this rolls right into 2020 tonight when that clock strikes midnight.

Today I really wanted to stretch my memory and share all of our 2019 highlights. Things that were goals, special memories, trips and just down right fun for us.

We are hugely thankful everyday for everything we have and it’s just another reason to be so happy with this past year. We couldn’t have asked for a better time together!

  1. Tofino | Kelowna | Whistler | Summerland | Victoria | Comox

Last year we started a goal for us and that was to take and explore more trips. Travel more and add more of that to our blogging content. It turned out to be such a huge hit for the blog. It helped grow and engage in so many ways. Not only that but our family had the best time exploring these places for the first time and trying something new.

2. Ella Started School

Our baby grew out of her baby stage and into big girl stages when she started her first year of kindergarten. It’s been a really important year for her and she’s been nailing it everyday. So proud of her.

3. Owen Moved To Juinor High

Our Owen had a big school year to, in moving to different schools to start his first year of junior high. He’s been hugely responsible and grew into a teenager overnight basically. He’s been doing such a great job!

4. Social Media Workshop

This was a big step for me, I was very much afraid to start this. But after much debate I just sunk my feet into my own social media workshop which turned out to be a big hit. I plan on hosting more in the new year and making them more of a women’s club in business and really diving more into teaching!

5. The Camera!

The camera came into our lives around this same time last year. And it is literally like our third child. It’s been helping me grow in what I do and it’s helped me to relearn a childhood love I left behind many years ago in photography. I’ve been having a blast learning and playing around with photos and editing!

6. Alberta

This trip was another goal, or I should say getting my family on a flight trip was a goal of mine. We nailed it and it was literally a highlight of the year. We had such a great time and organized and nicely put together. The four of us couldn’t have done it any other way it was that good.

7. Speaking At Women’s Events

I had the pleasure of speaking at three different women’s events this year and nominated for the Mompreuner award. Every time I do something like this is totally pushes me out of my introverted comfort zone and I’m so glad I do it!

8. Feature in VITA Daily | Progress & Abbotsford News |BC Living

Now, these are a very proud moment. I mean it’s not a huge milestone but every time something like this happens it’s defiantly a little exciting!

9. Bringing Home Macy

We opened our doors and hearts to a new puppy this year. Macy our loyal and loving Golden Doodle who has completely stolen our hearts. We love her so much and so happy we took that leap to a family pet!

10. Thriving & Happy

And while we conquer on our journey together the best part of 2019 was knowing that our family was thriving and happy along the way. Because that’s the best part is knowing we have each other. It’s been a great year, work and personal. I’m getting so excited to start this new year and get all those goals out!

Our Growing Golden Doodle Macy Lynne | 5 Months Old

TIME FLIES!

Crazy to think that our little fur ball baby girl Macy is hitting 5 months. We are still and more than ever in love with her. She has all those good qualities of a golden retriever and all the stubbornness of a poodle. Snacks are her best friend along with a lot and I mean A LOT of loving. She knows just how to pull on your heart strings and make you stop everything to cuddle up with her!

Herschel Gear For Everyday | Dressing Our Family

{Disclosure this post was sponsored post as part of an collaboration program, however all opinions are my own}

The past year has brought to our family many travelling days that we enjoyed so much. It’s been a huge meaningful thing for Drew and I to be able to travel more with our kids. Learn more and appreciate more the area we live in. Paradise doesn’t always have to be a tropical destination, we always find the beauty in our own backyard here in Canada and along our travels we have always had with us in tow… Herschel!

It seems like no matter where we go or how we spend our vacations Herschel has always been there. Gearing up our family and keeping us, warm, dry and stylish. This company has been a long lasting favourite for us and you’ll see why in a few minutes. They are in our lives for travel, school, outings, errands and more.

I’ve always loved the durability of this brand and the quality of this brand. They are affordable and most importantly super trendy with looks and styles. I always seem to find something I love that goes with everything!

Rain Gear

The rain jackets! Very much keep you dry. The three of us have matching black Herschel rain jackets and they were so useful to have when we went away to Tofino… Best item to have when you live in Raincouver!

Winter Gear

The toques are my absolute favourite. The cutest and that pink one is the only one Ella will ever wear for us. We wore all of our toques the whole time we were away in Banff. Any sweater and jackets are also a high quality choice to go with as well.

Back To School

The backpacks & lunch boxes have literally lasted through any school year and quite honestly any travelling because we also use these to pack our gear into when we leave for any trip!

We have been solidly working with Herschel for many years now and it is always one I continuously go too. The line of products is always streaming and the collections of items are always really fun to peek at to. Always something new!

Giving a NO FAIL Gift with Shopping.ca

{Disclosure this post was sponsored post as part of an collaboration program, however all opinions are my own}

Everyone has that one story to share. The one where you can tell all your friends and laugh about it with family. The gift that brings years of conversations. The bad gift, the awkward gift, the weird and random gifts. That really brings you to wonder “ What were they thinking when they bought this for me!” 

I remember as a kid growing up, my sister and I had plenty of moments like this with our family. And it did bring years of laughter and we still talk about it today. Not in a mean way of course, just a really fun way to think of how intentional we should be when giving and getting gifts.
