Trumpette Ballerina’s baby socks have been the solution to Rowan’s cold feet!  Read more […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

To all the mommies out there, whether you have a child or a pet that you treat as a child, have a wonderful Mother’s Day!  I hope you get to have a fun, relaxing day with your families.  I’ll be spending the day with my beautiful girls and my darling husband (who is vacuuming as I type, what a great guy!). Today is extra special in our house because it’s also Ashlyn’s second birthday – I can’t believe how quickly she’s growing up!  This is my favourite picture of us, taken just a few hours Read more […]
