Always Epiphanie

I think back to all the items I've reviewed here on My Organized Chaos {6 years worth!}, and wish I could easily do a follow up on those reviews. I think it'd be helpful for my readers to know which products stood the test of time, and which didn't. This is information I'd love to know myself when searching online. Alas, that would literally take forever {but you can always send me an email if you do have any questions, … [Read more...]

Everyday Moments: Captured and Shared

blacks-everyday-moments-captured

My photos are my most prized possessions, each one illustrates everyday moments captured for a lifetime and to be honest, I really don't know what I'd do without my photos – they are that precious to me. The pictures I have from years ago are only printed and in albums, dozens of them fill a bookcase in our home. The most recent ones are stored digitally {Facebook, Instagram, files and drives}, yet I'm sad to say that … [Read more...]

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...]

My Twins are Six!

twins 6

This past weekend we did some celebrating - my twins turned Six! Six is a pretty big number, it's like overnight they turn into school-age children. Taller, stronger, more independent and mature ... Hold me! I'll post more about their birthday soon, yet truth is, I haven't even had time to even go through their photos yet. *someone* {me} decided it would be a good week to do an impromptu bedroom renovation. … [Read more...]

Fireworks {Kind of} Captured

We spent a few days at our creek property last week, and celebrated Canada Day there. It was an incredible camping trip, and for a very specific reasons {but, more on that later}.  Of course, the highlight after the sun fully set, was the fireworks! Not long at all and it wasn't an intense and dramatic show - but they were one of the best ever.  A family chose them, invited neighbours and we … [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...]

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...]
