Mother’s Day Gift Guide

With little ones it’s not always easy to have a relaxing Mother’s Day, so, instead of longing for a spa day or time alone, I’ve given up the idea of peace and quiet and most years opt for fun and adventure! This year, we’re taking the ferry to the San Juan Islands and I can’t […]

Jem and I went on a girl date with some friends to paint pottery the other week and on our way back to the car she insisted that we take a few photos of each other because “we don’t have boys to wrestle”. She was SO right. Going out with just an almost eight year old is […]
