The Missing Ingredient

Last night, I looked through the fridge and cupboards for inspiration as to what to make for dinner. I decided to make Teriyaki salmon on a bed of rice with steamed vegetables on the side.

Beat the Post-Christmas Blues

Christmas is over. There's sadness in you. Perhaps it's because the family has gone home and now the house feels so empty. Perhaps it's because of the forgotten Christmas tree in the corner of the room... the lights are no longer turned on and there's a void beneath the tree.

The Proposal

Almost five years ago, my life changed forever.



On Christmas Eve in 2005, my husband proposed to me. It wasn't the usual proposal though. With Evan's permission, I thought I would honour the occasion by sharing the six page comic he wrote about the proposal. We handed out the comic at our wedding (with the wedding programme inside). Everyone loved it!…

Jennifer the Grouch

Maybe it was the foot of snow that had fallen overnight. Maybe it's that I'm tired and it's Wednesday and I just can't bear these last few work days before it's the weekend. Maybe it's that my dog woke me up on several occasions last night because he had an upset tummy and needed to get let out.

Personalized Room Decor

For the past couple of years I have been looking for a personalized name plaque for my daughter's bedroom. However, nothing quite fit with her room decor.
