Good Morning

It is for times like these that I am thankful to have my camera beside the bed...if you have to get up at the crack of dawn, it's nice to have a friend or two waiting to greet you, don't you think?

How's your transition to September going?  The temperature has cooled, the days seem shorter and the structure of the school year is on us.  So far, so good here, although secretly I'm missing having both kids home!!  How about you?

Things That Make Me Smile

Well hello's been a while hasn't it?

I hope the summer has been treating you well and you've been enjoying every precious moment of this heat we've been having (I love it!!). I had all intentions of blogging everyday but gave in to my life as a mum! I figured there would always be time to catch up with you when the weather turns but only so many summer days with my kids...

I'll be back soon...

Things That Make Me Smile

It seems like ages since I've sat down to do anything at my computer.  I took an unplanned hiatus just from being too busy with the kids and their schedules!  I chose not to fight it and go with the flow and ended up having a fantastic week...
Canada's Wonderland was a highlight.  Max had been invited for a friend's birthday so Liv and I decided to tag along. I wasn't sure how we'd make out with the heat and long lines but it was pure excitement and fun!

Weekend Snippets

Happy Monday!  
We are under overcast skies today, but nothing can dampen our victories over the weekend.  Max played his final football game and they came out on top (by 1 point!!).  It was a fantastic game with both sides (it was 3 on 3) playing their hearts out and really working together on every play.  It is really wonderful to see a group of kids so supportive of each other through the good plays and not so good ones too. I was thoroughly impressed that they kept going despite the extreme heat!
Liv has conquered the pool!  She has shed all of her floating contraptions and is able to swim unaided.  She's even managed to pull off a backwards somersault if you can believe it! 
I'll be back with my victories on the bath reno!!  See you soon....

Liberty Hoops

Isn't this a super idea?  Purl Soho (in NY) came up with this really clever way of displaying their large collection of Liberty fabric prints for customers.  I think this translates well for the home too!  An easy project to do with the kids or on a quiet Sunday afternoon - also a nice gift idea!  See the how-to here...

Gold Posts

A simple gold post; these were Olivia's earring of choice.  
After at least a year of wearing small stickers on her ears, she now has the real deal! She wanted to know how it would all play out, down to how the piercing gun worked.  Once all of her questions were answered, she was ready.  She was completely brave and shed no tears while getting them pierced.  

Here she is, in all her big-girl glory with her shiny new golden earrings!
