Aunty Ant Takes Her Revenge

Earlier in the week I was so tired; it was the kind of exhaustion that makes me wonder if something is seriously wrong. Why am I so tired? I kept saying, over and over, like the world’s most boring broken record. My husband gently reminded me that every so often I DO get this tired, and […]

Nicole’s Favourite Things: The Puerto Vallarta Edition

I just got back from my THIRD grocery trip since returning home on Friday; Friday being five days ago. Back to reality and my part-time job of teaching yoga, along with my full-time job of feeding my family. You people are pigs! I may have said to myself as I pulled out ingredients for pumpkin loaf; the […]

Well. That was a bit of a […]

Kitchen Reno, Five (plus) Years Later

Hoo boy, has it been a long week or what? I know it’s technically a short week, but it feels…trying. Trying and LONG.
