A Letter To My Husband

Dearest Husband, 2 years ago I walked down the aisle towards you and I remember thinking in that very moment that this was the best day of my life. Now do not get me wrong, that day holds such a special place in my heart because even though we had known each other for 20 years, it was the first day of our forever. But today, 2 years later, sitting here showing our daughter our wedding photos while rubbing the small pitter-patters in my belly, I cannot help but feel this moment, this very simple moment, is one of the best moments I have lived.  However, when entering parenthood we were innocently unaware of what that would mean and how...

We saw nothing but open space - half an acre of green grass, fresh air and we instantly looked at one another and knew we were home. That day we made an offer and by the following morning we were owners of our “dream home”. We had bought a house before but this one was different. Even though it was a...

Social Media Break

Some of you have noticed our mysterious disappearance and some are just wondering if we have dropped off the face of the earth. To those of you who have contacted us with your concerns and “we miss you” I just like to say, thank you so much. It warms my heart to know so many of you care. The biggest questions I have had people asking me are, “What’s going on, are you okay?” and “Are you coming back or are you closing business?” I am not going to go into the dramatic, in-depth story of all the things that have happened in the last month because at the end of the day, we are all happy, healthy and I...
