Sometimes I Choose Myself Over My Kids

It’s okay, at one point I would have gasped too. We aren’t ever supposed to choose ourselves over our children – once we become parents, THEY become the priority. I get it, I really do, and my children are absolutely my highest priority. Always have been, always will be.  But I have learned that sometimes I get to matter too, in some cases, even more. Here are some ways I’ve chosen myself over them: Becoming an animal-free home Although becoming…

Sign Me Up For The Selfie Revolution

In a time when self image seems to be at an all time low, seeing someone post selfies makes me happy. Let’s face it, people rarely post photos of themselves they don’t like so  it feels like they are saying *hey, I like how I look in this* – which to me is pure gold.  I’m such a huge fan of the selfie revolution and not just because I’m a selfie nut, an addict if you will. Ha! I really do love…

Why I Don’t Care If There Is a God

This isn’t what you might think. This isn’t some public declaration to discredit God or those who believe in Him. Stay with me here because it’s not about that.  I want to talk about the way we treat people, the words we use and our actions. The reasons we are who we are….who we say we are and who we want to be, and why these things are important. Because you see, I don’t believe God can or should be…

Client Feedback: Why Hailey is Rad!

Hailey genuinely cares about me and loves me as a person. She has helped me through my separation and divorce, the transition back to single life, through relationships, and the most important … she helped heal and change my heart to the point where I felt I was worth something and that I am here for a reason. The love and care she showed me changed my heart at the time I needed it the most. She didn’t know I…

Do You Ever Wish You Had A Sister?

Several years ago, while at a cousin’s wedding (I don’t remember which one ~ there are a lot of those in my family haha), I got caught in a bit of an emotional moment as I watched her sisters performing something together in her honour. It was funny and sweet, and you just knew there were heaps of memories made in preparation of this performance. And it got me. I wondered what that kind of sibling relationship is like and…

My DNA Results And What Surprised Me The Most

I’ve grown up always knowing I was adopted. It was never news, I just always knew. And I was lucky enough to be in an extended family (both sides) that always knew and never saw it as an issue either. In fact, more often than not, it was something forgotten. It wasn’t secret, it wasn’t taboo, and we were just family.  With my adoptive parents (I never call them that, for the record), my mom is Irish and my dad…

So I Have A Cousin….

I have a cousin. Perhaps it feels like an incredibly basic statement to make but to me it’s the beginning of everything changing.  Let me back up a bit. Just over a week ago I got my results from 23andMe. 1115 DNA relatives came back as matching with me. ELEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN people I’m related to but don’t know at all. And one of them is a first cousin. And because I know my birth dad’s last name (my…

Ordering Household Basics Online is Life Changing

It wasn’t until a friend of mine went live on Facebook a few months ago, that I considered the possibility – and genius – of ordering toilet paper online. Her video was of her telling her kids the giant delivery was something for them. I laughed so hard when they opened the box to realize it was nothing more than toilet paper. Hahahahaha! Ah such a funny little trick to play on the littles and yes, I plan the same…

Jorie and the Magic Stones: A Book to Read with the Whole Family

I hardly give myself any time at all to read an actual book – I’ve learned the hard way more than a few times that nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING else gets done when I have my nose in one. I can’t even confirm that I shower or the kids get fed. Ha! I literally and completely lose myself within the pages. So as you can imagine, I have to be VERY careful when I choose to indulge. It’s also precisely why…

The Oil Diffuser Everyone Should Buy

I love love love my oil diffuser and have been wanting to get my kids each their own also, but wasn’t sure which oil diffuser to get. It can be overwhelming, don’t you think? So many companies now make them and the prices range from $30-$100 or more. I knew I didn’t want to spend as much as I had on mine, so I did one of my trusty Amazon searches to see what I could find, and within about 10…
