Camping Hammock

  Happy Thanksgiving! We spent the weekend at our family ski chalet, hiking (a little bit), eating, drinking, and, of course relaxing. It was perfect. I was invited by Pouch Couch to try out their camping hammock, so I decided to pack it up and bring along with me to test it out. Here’s my […]

Motherhood: kissing your little ones on the lips

Kissing your little one on the lips; yes or no?  I couldn’t manage to get a photo with the other littles, but I caught this one since she can’t walk yet! (Sorry it’s so blurry) This is something that I never thought about until recently. I love giving kisses to my littles on the lips. […]

Easter

Happy Easter! I hope you had a restful day. Even though it was storming outside…as usual, we enjoyed a family day at home eating Easter candy, playing outside in the snow and doing some littles-friendly baking. The kiddos had a visit from their cousin Lua which meant they played while the mamas gossiped and drank […]

life Lately: A walk in the woods

    Duncan to Belle: “You know, my favorite thing is walking in the woods.” Belle’s reply: “Not me. I like playdough.” Fair enough.                         “When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”             […]

I’ve been trying to make an effort to drag my butt outside to get us all some much-needed vitamin D and I’ve made it to a hot yoga class here and there […]

Bingo Pants

This was the one day Belle let me take her photo and she wasn’t wearing her usual Bingo pants. You might be asking yourself: “What exactly are bingo pants?” I’m glad you asked. “Bingo pants” is a term that was coined by my ever-so-slightly cynical sister when she noticed that Belle seemed to have an […]

I Love Fall

    It’s that time of year again. The air is crisp, the nights are getting cooler and the leaves are just starting to turn. It’s Fall…well almost. For me, it’s the beginning of a new year (must be the teacher in me) and it’s the time I usually make my resolutions, like exercising more or eating less […]

The Big Reunion

            Today was a big day for Belle. She was reunited with her cousin, Lua, whom she hadn’t seen for six months. It was hilarious to see the two of them together. Lua is 8 1\2 months old and Belle just sort of stared at her. She really didn’t know what to think. She definitely did not […]
