We love the beautiful artwork and the inspiring stories about girls who learn the dedication it requires to become a ballerina. I hope you enjoy this lovely little collection as much as we do!

BC’s Hidden Family Vacation Gem, Cozy Cabins

Cozy Cabins Family Vacation

Summer 2020 …  what a time. Having spent most of Spring in quarantine, a family vacation just might be (permanently) at the top of our wish list. With travel on pause for the foreseeable future, there isn’t a better time than now to appreciate, enjoy, and discover our own backyard. We wanted to find an amazing family vacation destination in our home province of British Columbia and were lucky to spend a week at Cozy Cabins Nature Resort. Tucked away in the Creighton Valley just outside of Lumby, BC, this family resort is truly one of a kind! Today I’m sharing why we love Cozy Cabins for the best family vacation.

Thank you to Cozy Cabins Nature Resort for hosting our stay! All opinions shared in this review post are my own.

Teething Toys for Babies

A teething baby is so much fun, said no mother ever. 

Today we’re talking about teething, and what teething toys are the best! Right now my little guy is teething (has been since 3 months!) and he finally got his first tooth!

It’s crazy how some kids have it easy, others worse, and the timing is all over the place. Below are my kids’ favourite teething toys. If you’ve got a fussy, teething baby, hang in there– and check out these little toys to help your baby through it!
