  • On My Mind: Doing Too Much

    One of the things I struggle with expressing on the blog is complexity. Seldom is a personal challenge in a silo all by itself- it usually overlaps in rings across many other events, desires, and anxieties; both past and present. But one of my goals this year on the blog was to get more of myself

  • Lila’s Birthday Party: Michael’s Superhero Craft Party

    Please forgive the photos. the party room is painted a bizarre bright yellow/green, and it messed with the colours in all the photos, it seems! I also didn’t want to put any photos of the blogs that contained photos of other people’s children, so they are pretty cropped.  After asking you guys for birthday party

  • Wee Wednesday: Alpaca Farm Adventures

    It was Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend, so we took some time to go up North to Sudbury and spend time with family. Lila was particularly excited that her godfather made her a real wooden hockey stick, cut to her size, capped and taped just right. She thought it was the coolest! Here she is,
