Hello my friends! As y’all know (because of my incessant complaining perhaps), I spent the first half of this month knee deep in boxes. Unpacking our lives after the big cross-province move was a BIG job, bigger than I remember it being. Let me tell you, this wasn’t my first rodeo. In fact, we’ve moved 4.5 times (that .5 is a long story that nobody needs to hear right now) in the last 5 years. And what have I learned… Read more »

I’ve got boxes, shelves and closets even (yes, closets with an “s”, as in more… Read more »

DIY Pipe Curtain Rod

Happy Friday friends!!! We’ve made it through another week and the weekend is almost here! Any special plans? We’re hoping to head to Jasper National Park for a bit of skiing (and maybe some shopping too). We’re definitely missing having the Kootenays in our backyard, but at least having the majestic Rocky Mountains so close at hand gives us something to look forward to! We grew up skiing, biking and exploring the Rockies and there’s really nothing like them! Life… Read more »
