Random Signs of Spring

spring at dusk

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


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...]

Month In Photos: March 2014


March 2014 was a month jam-packed with birthday parties and small ways to make memories. The girls had quite a bit of time off with conferences and Spring Break, so it was a nice blend of relax time at home and activity when boredom struck. Month In Photos: March 2014 We attended our city's children's expo where the twins got to meet, hug and follow Rainbow Dash around like little fan girls. Instead of an … [Read more...]

Stand out with PhatStraps! #CanonCanada #giveaway


For years my DSLR looked like every other with it's generic black branded strap. At gatherings, like weddings and dinners, I'd lay my camera down on a table and then hesitated when I went to pick it up. Many camera with the same black branded strap would collect in the area.  The last straw was when we were on one specific vacation and the temperatures soared to a billion degrees {small exageration}. I, of course … [Read more...]

Month In Photos: February 2014


February 2014 could be best described as bitterly cold. There were just a few nice days that allowed for outdoor play. Yet for the most part, indoors we stayed. Month In Photos: February 2014 Of course there was another *fantastic* cheer competition for my oldest and we certainly can't forget Valentine's Day 2014. This year, the candy that the kids were given really competed with Halloween. As we move into March, I'd … [Read more...]

Get Outside and Play!


  Finally! Finally we have a break from the freezing weather and I can say those words I love to speak ... "Get outside and play!".     In no way do I believe that Spring it on it's way, yet this break in weather sure makes a person think it is. Back and forth, back and forth - like taking off a bandaid slowly. Just get on with it already, rip it off and bring on the next season! … [Read more...]

Month In Photos: January 2014


      January 2014 highlights were teaching the twins to skate, swimming lessons and a Cheerleading competition in Edmonton. Month In Photos I actually didn't take as many photos in January compared to previous months. I have to keep in mind that some of the best moments to remember are the usual/ordinary ones. For instance, the photos of the twins on the couch - they were simply in a daze … [Read more...]

Month In Photos: December 2013


      December is pretty much over already? How did that happen? This entire month seems like a whirlwind that took me along for the ride. It started with a fantastic trip with my daughter to Beaches Negril in Jamaica. The sand, sun and ocean was the most perfect way to start the month off right. As soon as we got back, it was a mad rush to finish shopping, baking and decorating. Due to the … [Read more...]
