Month In Photos: July 2014

JULY 2014 was again another beautiful month for weather in Alberta. The majority of the month was spent in a heat wave, which resulted in us getting air conditioning for the home. Crazy canucks right? A few days of super hot weather out of the year and we're installing the AC. Yet, a cooler house really helped with my cake decorating this year since this month the twins turned 6! They had a fantastic FROZEN themed … [Read more...]

JUNE 2014 was truly one beautiful month, we had so many sunny days. So obviously much time was spent outdoors. We camped for 3 weekends at our creek property, taking off the last one due to rain and just to have a quiet weekend at home. Month In Photos: June 2014 In June, I was on absolute survival mode. With all the school activities and endless year end events - my calendar was a mess of pen, notes and … [Read more...]

Summer!

HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE!  {said with so much excitement I could burst} We had a remarkable weekend and a wonderful start to summer 2014!  Friday was the twins last day of Kindergarten {sniff}, so after some morning festivities at the school we went to 'Food Truck Fridays' downtown with some friends and ate lunch in the park. Some of the best food is served out the side of a truck. Just … [Read more...]

Los Angeles Love

palm-trees-la

It may look like a concrete jungle from above {good comparison from someone who lives in Alberta}, yet within lies a whole lotta everything.  I'm currently in Los Angeles for meetings and I just have to say - I big-puffy-cheesy love this city! Palm trees, sun, something to see at every turn. And yes, I even love the movie and TV show billboards everywhere! It's like my special sneak preview, since we don't … [Read more...]

MAY 2014 started with a bang as our family headed to Beaches Resorts in Turks and Caicos! Located on beautiful grace bay, we spent a lot of time in the sun, sand and pool - and the trip could not have been better. Actually, most of our May 2014 was spent in Turks and Caicos, since we didn't return until mid-month. How's that for a spectacular May!? Once we returned, it was activity and school catch-up plus a TON of … [Read more...]

Month In Photos: April 2014

April started off with a bang as I spent some time in Mexico for a press trip and enjoyed much sun, sand and water. Yet that was just the beginning of a great month ahead - April was an entire month of enjoying the beautiful outdoors. Rubber boots were a must this Spring yet after a few days, all the snow was gone. Hooray for seeing grass again! Easter weekend was a great time with family, even though my daughter ended … [Read more...]

Our Easter 2014

easter-2014-6

Hope you had a wonderful Easter! Our weekend festivities began with the dying of the eggs. Usually we do this a few days before Easter weekend, yet this year we decorated on Good Friday. The girls LOVE dying eggs!               Isabelle wrote a cute note for the bunny, so a couple eggs disappeared from the bowl later that night. I'm … [Read more...]

Random Signs of Spring

This week truly felt like the first days of Spring, it's been a beautiful 15 °C! We haven't seen a nice day like this since late September, so it's been a long Winter to say the least. So, what does one do when it's finally nice enough to ditch that Winter coat? Enjoy it, of course! Yet, this nice weather also means a lot of melting. Water everywhere! So obviously, since I'm one of those last minute 'planners', … [Read more...]

Paradise Found at Maroma Beach

Maroma-Beach

During my stay at Generations Riviera Maya in Mexico last week, all the attending travel writers got to experience something beautiful. Breathtaking, in fact. We drove the short distance from our resort, to El Dorato Maroma {adults only resort} and the new Generations Maroma {family resort}, which is located on Maroma Beach. There we boarded a catemeran, did some snorkeling, and basked in the wonder that is … [Read more...]
