The World of Prenatal Yoga

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Sometimes I forget how much I love yoga. Sometimes I get caught up in scrolling through image after image of Instagram yogis and their beautiful postures, and it brings a sense of inadequacy and even jealousy that should be nowhere associated with the practice of yoga. Sometimes I am able to dis-attach myself from the […]

A Big Girl’s Room

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Our Big Girl has been ready for her big girl bed for a while now. I had been anxiously awaiting her birthday but at the time it seemed so far away, so despite being a month early, in it went! Neither of us could be happier. The biggest problem at this point is that whoever […]

Mother’s Day

I suppose this will be a lengthy post (though we will see how long I have before the little ones wake up…). Of course I could write for days about being a mom, or my own mom as a person, or how my mom inspires me as a mom, etc, but I think it would […]

Sod cutter? Check. Tiller? Check. Insane amounts of compost and peat? Check. Potatoes of varying types shipped from Alberta? Why not, right? Check.

What is supposed to be two months of relaxation and bliss for them becomes the comings and goings of my sister and I, our husbands, […]

The irony as I write this post on Maisie’s serene nursery is that it’s nap time and I am watching her in the monitor while she rolls around in her crib. Totally awake. And actually, at this moment, Arya just walked in and is now reading books in the chair.  It’s reminding me of the […]

Jon Partridge Pottery

When Dev and I were thinking about our wedding registry there was one specific route I knew I had to go: pottery for our tableware. My bestie had done the same thing when she got married and I always appreciated the idea. China is beautiful and formal and fragile; pottery is rough, raw, and artistic. […]

Tile Fun

We decided to leave the main floor bathroom for last in all the reno insanity. Our kids bath was the first thing completed; since August we have been running up and down stairs to get there but to be honest I do not mind the wait, because I know what is coming is going to […]
