Fight Those Mosquitoes... Naturally!

Summer is around the corner. Sunshine, lake days, campfires, starry nights... all wonderful elements of this time of year. But then there's the mosquito... the dreaded little bugger that tries to rob us of our enjoyment of this short season.

Early last summer I became prey to these awful little insects and decided to fight back (and ended up having some success)! This year,…

Rocky Mountain Highs

As I returned to work today, the high of my four day vacation in Banff sustained me. I love my job but I love the proverbial bliss that comes with a vacation. Our trip to Banff was our last road trip as a family of three (and somewhat a "babymoon" for us). Here are some pictorial highlights from the trip.

I'm Back... and I Did It!

 

It may seem odd or trivial to some... but I did it! I disconnected for one whole week and went screen-free! No e-mail. No internet. No computer. No texting. No television. No movies.

 

Guess what? I survived....

How Long Could You Go Without Screen Time?

 

This question was posed at a recent screening that I attended of the fascinating Ground Productions documentary, Play Again by filmmaker Tonje Schei. This film follows several youths as they are removed from a life of television, video games and cell phones and are presented with the opportunity to rediscover nature....…

On Being A Mom

 

With Mother's Day around the corner, I felt compelled to share my own views on being a mom. Even though Mother's Day is traditionally viewed as a time to honour the mothers in our lives, I find it's also a wonderful opportunity to reflect on my own personal journey of motherhood.

 

When I became a mom my life ended and began. The life of me became the life of you....…

Vegan Pancakes

 

What kid doesn't love pancakes? Having a daughter who's anaphylactic to dairy (as well as allergic to eggs) has motivated me to seek out vegan recipes. I found a great vegan pancake recipe online and I slightly modified it to make it more healthy. Here's the final version for your baking enjoyment.…

Children's Books That Would Make Any Mom Cry

With Mother's Day around the corner, I thought I would compile a list of preschool picture books that would make any mom cry (and every Mom on Mother's Day needs to shed a few sentimental tears). Perhaps you know a mom who's celebrating her first mother's day... if so, consider giving her a special keepsake picture book....…

To Market, To Market....

 

Today was the first day of the farmer's market which operates near my home. The market is open from May to October and it hosts a variety of local farmers' and crafters' products.

 

We started our excursion to the market by putting on our walking shoes. The market is only a couple blocks away, it's a nice walk and it helps build the anticipation of the market atmosphere.... …
