If there is one woman in my life that I would have to choose that inspires me it would hands down be my sister in law Viv. She has such a big heart and she is so giving to the community and the youth in our area.
She is also fantastic in the kitchen and can decorate a room in no time. She makes every event special. She takes the time and care to not only make a room and the food presentation look beautiful she always leaves behind a little special touch of herself. Continue reading →
How often do you take time to stop and think about the little things in life? There are so many joyous moments in life but we just have to remember to stop and take a moment to notice.
Don’t take life or people for granted.
My Mr. and I we talk, a lot. And we talk a lot with each other. I know a lot of you are thinking, well that’s great, communication is a building block or even the main foundation of a good relationship and that is true.
But sometimes a little quiet is nice too. You know how they say (who is ‘they’ anyway…?) you know you are really comfortable with someone when you can sit in a room together and be quiet together with out it being awkward? Well that never happens with us, unless we are watching a movie, playing a video game, mad at each other or the kids are around etc. (which covers most of everyday..)
I love our conversations and I wouldn’t change it for a minute, well except the time I changed it for five…let me tell you about it.
The other night we did our evening retreat to the bedroom, hiding ourselves away for a few minutes of quiet time and my Mr. started talking about work. Normally I pay full attention but I think I just wanted some peace and quiet and I was feeling bored by work talk.
My husband loves to bake home made bread and he’s quite good at it. While we all love a great home made loaf of bread like the above garlic rosemary that fills the house with the warm smells of fresh bakeries, there isn’t always time for that. Continue reading →
A little bit of food goes a long way… well not in my house but it sounded good to say!
There’s just something about BBQ’s. It’s so nice to be surrounded by friends and family in the out doors sharing some fabulous food.
While I like to eat healthy and ensure that my children get their fill of healthy and nutritional foods we also love to enjoy the many foods that are available to us. A good example of this is bacon. I love me some bacon. I could have bacon with everything. Things wrapped in bacon, bacon bits, cooked in bacon grease.
