This is Halloween!

So it seems that this site is resolving itself into some sort of Mom Blog, but I am entirely OK with that. This year, for halloween, Edward and I decided to take full advantage of our daughter’s love of the spotlight, and attention, and over-friendlyness with strangers – and put …

Baby Book Review

In downtown Toronto it’s no easy feat to get into certain programs or classes (see this article from The GridTO on the issue). So when I was able to get Lydia into Baby Reading Time at the brand-new Fort York Library (after calling for over 2hrs, and then being waitlisted, …

At this point I couldn’t imagine myself getting any bigger, but Baby Carrot still has some growing to do before they enter the world. One of my most favorite hobbies is watching my belly bounce and wriggle, which is both very …

Showered with Love

I might be a loud, talkative, know-it-all – but surprisingly, I don’t like being the center of attention that much.
I’ve not had a proper Birthday Party since I was about 10 years old, and didn’t have a Bachelorette/Wedding Shower, or anything like that before I got married. My wedding …

One Year Quitaversary!

Exactly one year (and one day) ago, I quit smoking. The day I decided to quit, I wrote about it here. I was absolutely 100% positively certain that I would never have another cigarette after that morning – and I’m so relieved and proud to have proven myself right.

My Life, My Blog

I always say I’m going to start blogging again, because I really do miss the old days (like, a decade ago) when I could look back and see what I was doing, feeling, thinking and sharing. Reading some of my old LiveJournal entries has really solidified how drastically I’ve changed …

Ride Bike and Naps

About a year ago I bought a Bicycle. Approximately 30 minutes after the purchase, I experienced a pretty bad accident involving some streetcar tracks. This not only left my knees in pretty rough shape, it also caused me to cancel a trip to NYC I had been pretty excited about. …
