Countdown to Christmas: 48 Days

Countdown to Christmas

In my last post I mentioned that I was eager to start the countdown to Christmas. 48 days left, well 47 days and 10 hours if you want to get a little more technical! :)

I feel like I’ve been waiting since last Christmas to bust out my favourite holiday movies and cuddle up with a giant mug of hot chocolate. So I’ll probably be checking out the countdown clock quite often. Once it gets a little closer though I wanted to have something that would act as a decoration but also a daily way to keep track.

I’m Back!

I’m back! Due to a musty/mildew problem that started with the humidity in the summer the room where I have my computer has been out of commission for almost 2 months! So annoying! I finally had enough and shoved things around so I could free my computer from that mess and be able to use it once again. I’ve been able to use my phone and iPad to be able to do day to day stuff but for somethings you just want to be able to use your actual desktop or laptop, ya know?

So I’ll keep to my little temporary set up for now and hopefully I’ll be able to be back at my real desk soon enough!

Fall is in the Air

I don’t know about where you live but where I am fall is most certainly in the air! Even though it technically doesn’t arrive until the 22nd of September it is already slowly creeping in more and more as it gets closer to that date.

Fall is my favourite time of year, and I know many of you would agree with me. There is just something amazing about the season between blistering hot summer and bitterly cold winter that makes it feel so special. You get to pull out your tall boots and cozy knit sweaters that have been packed away. Soups, tea and hot chocolate are welcomed back since they are rarely something you want to have when it’s hot and humid out. There are also many fairs and festivals to attend, I remember going to the fair every year when I was younger to get a pogo, go on the rides and see the baby animals.

Taste the Rainbow: Purple Edition

Taste the Rainbow Purple EditionPurple has been one of my favourite colours for as long as I can remember. When I was little my cousin and I used to get matching outfits. Hers would be pink and mine would be purple, except for the time my Mom found an awesome Little Mermaid pink and purple tie dye outfit for us. Eventually blue took over the spot of my favourite colour, especially navy, but over the past few years purple has been creeping back into my heart. My favourite being dark purple, go figure since it looks so similar to navy blue.

I found a bunch of things lately that have all caught my eye with their beautiful shades of purple.

Life is Hard

I’ve been dealing with the death of a close friend lately. It seems like this past year has been filled with so many more deaths than previous years. It’s times like these that remind me how hard life can be on us all. 

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…

Now that I’ve long been out of school I can finally appreciate the use of that phrase in their back to school commercials. I don’t have kids yet so I’m not quite as ready for back to school season to be here, my sister in-law however, has been ready for quite some time now. In Canada it’s still a few weeks away but I know for those south of the border it’s about that time. I love stumbling across free printables and backgrounds for different holidays and occasions so I thought maybe now it was my turn to make a few for others to enjoy.

If you do have little ones starting school this year or going back you may want to leave them a note to let them know you are thinking about them. I made one blank incase you want the whole space or to draw a quick picture for them and one with lines if you are like me and cannot write straight to save your life.

A Whole New World

A Whole New Wrold

Trying to figure out what to write for your first few blog posts is intimidating. Actually, all of blogging seems intimidating.

Everything I have read about starting a blog mentions to find what you are passionate about, stick to that and the rest, with hard work, will fall into place. I follow plenty of blogs daily, some for many years now. Food blogs, makeup/product blogs and general lifestyle blogs seem to take up most of my reader feed. I love finding a new recipe to make or a new product I want to try. But I’m even more passionate about sharing those things that I find and love with those around me. Finding a recipe that I love is great but finding one to share with my Mom is amazing. Finding a funny picture or video is entertaining, but finding one to send to my best friend to make her smile in the middle of her day is way better. I want to share the things that make my day better with those around me, I’m hoping this website will expand the amount of people I can share with.

So hopefully you’ll be able to find something you like here, but also share with me the things that amuse you on a day to day basis.
