It’s been 14 school days and I just want to tell you all how AMAZING it is to finally have 4 kids in full day school. No, not just amazing, I mean ah-maze-ing! This is the culmination of more than 11 years of work. 11 years of having babies, driving babies to baby gym, meeting moms for play dates, nap times, … Continue reading


Someone pinch me, I must be dreaming. I’ve had THE most amazing week and to be honest, I keep thinking it was a dream because it came and went in such a flurry of excitement that I’m still spinning from it. To sum it all up, I went to New York Fashion Week! Me. Yes, the gal who loves fashion … Continue reading


Less than a week to go before school starts. Where has the time gone? Summer has been filled with camping trips to the lake, long nights laughing with friends, lazy mornings sleeping till 9am, swim camps, bike riding, rock collecting, horse stables, ice cream, s’mores, fireworks and BBQ’s. So why not end the dog days of summer housebound with a … Continue reading

One of my absolute favourite things to do while traveling is to get a tattoo souvenir and so in all honesty, it didn’t take much convincing to get me … Continue reading

Yes. Crazy busy? Yes indeed! Here’s how 4 gals on the fly had a fantastic, spontaneous day of site … Continue reading


Lets EAT! San Francisco is a foodie town. There are restaurants everywhere and it can be extremely hard to pick. We wandered down to the famous Pier 39 at Fisherman’s Wharf for some more shopping. The pier is a tourist hot spot with views of the bay, shops, vendors, buskers, street art and of course food. The 4 of us … Continue reading


Some of my best memories are sitting around a fire pit or camp fire talking with my friends. We would share tales of the tall and personal variety and of course the ever popular ghost stories. There’s something about being outdoors with nothing but your camping chair and your marshmallow skewer to protect you, listening to scary stories that make … Continue reading
