Happy and HEALTHY Holidays!

With my family being in the Toronto area, I’m in full packing and planning mode around this time of year in preparation for our annual trek to visit my family for four nights, and than up to John’s family cottage for three nights. The holiday season is notorious for being heavy on the sugar and […]

Checking In…

Wow. This is the first time I’ve logged in since January 28th, and the only reason is because I decided not to prep dinner tonight or get groceries; thank goodness for my mother-in-law’s frozen chicken soup. The last 4 months has flown by, but it’s so fun taking care of both my boys. Jack is […]

Creamy Overnight (no cook!) Steel Cut Oats and Making the Best of Everyday

This past weekend we took a much needed weekend away to Mont Tremblant with some friends. Even though we didn’t ski (I would have loved to, but didn’t think it was safe being 24 weeks pregnant, and Jack’s a little young to start this winter) it was so nice to get away as a family […]

This past week in Colombia has been amazing. We spent some time in the city, and than we were invited to our friend’s finca (like a cottage, but Colombian style) in Sante Fe – a beautiful little vacation town about an hour from Medellin. Lunch date with my boys in Medellin. I brought some egg […]

Colombia So Far: Photo Blog

Colombia has been amazing so far. I forgot what a beautiful country it is, and everyone has made us feel so welcome. Jack has been awesome – I think this kid was meant to travel. We’ve been all over the map since we got here, pushing his bed-time and his meal time, but he’s been sleeping, […]

Next Stop: Medellin, Colombia!

Tomorrow we’re leaving this freezing cold polar vortex and going to Medellin, Colombia for 2 weeks. It’s Jack’s first time in South America, and I can’t wait to show him one of my favorite cities. We’re staying with our friends in their condo, and they also have a baby who is a few months younger than Jack so […]

We’re taking Jack to the resort where John and I were engaged, and got married on January 27th, 2010. It’s a really special place for […]
