Worth It (Wordless Wednesday)

“A flock of sheep that leisurely pass byOne after one; the sound of rain, and beesMurmuring; the fall of rivers, winds and seas,Smooth fields, white sheets of water, and pure sky –I’ve thought of all by turns, and still I lieSleepless…”        ~William Wordsworth, “To Sleep” A sleepless night with my little one – seeing him […]

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

I have to confess that I have a bit of a problem. I change my hair, love it, and then get bored of that hairstyle and drastically change it up again. I can walk into the office with long straight hair one day, and then stroll in the next day with an inch-long cropped do. The […]

Can U Belize It?

11/11/11 was Remembrance Day for us Canadians. It was a popular day for many couples to tie the knot. But for the hubs and I, it was the day we packed up our things and left our busy lives behind us as we headed on a Caribbean cruise adventure. Our first stop was Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands: […]

Let It Rain

It rains a lot in Vancouver. So often that I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever see the sun again. We try to be creative when reporting our weather – “cloudy with showers”, “light rain”, “isolated showers”, “scattered showers”, “heavy rainfall” – think I’m joking? Check out The Weather Network’s forecast for this week. As a […]

How I Came To Bee

When I first saw the topic for this week’s Moday Listicles, I was going to opt out. It gave me flashbacks of my childhood which was laden with projects surrounding the theme of “family trees”. Teachers prompted us to explore our lineages – to draw trees with photos and dotted lines connecting our family members, showing how we were made, where we […]

Fall Flashback

  It’s time. Time for the rain-falling, cool-breeze-blowing, fuzzy-sweater-wearing, hot-drink-sipping, crunchy-leaf-throwing, scarf-wrapping season that I love. It’s time for Fall.

Bits of Bliss

This is my bliss. This is where I send my mind when stress is about to bubble through my ears, or when I’m working late and missing my little bits. This is what I imagine my Heaven will look like. This is where I want to spend my every waking moment.

Parenting in Playland

I used to be this kid. Grinning from ear to ear, carefree and having the time of my life at Playland (our local annual carnival for those of you who don’t live in my ‘hood). But yesterday, when the hubs and I took our 4 year old to my favourite childhood destination, it dawned on […]

May The Fours Be With You

I try constantly to snap sentimental photos of my little 4-year-old McSasserson, but no matter how hard I try, my camera lens is greeted with one of many famous 4-year-old poses: The Googly Eyed Pose The “I Think I’m A Model” Pose The Stink Eye Pose (Most Common) – The “Mouth Wide Open” Pose But […]
