lavender’s blue

This week on my way home from visiting a friend I noticed a sign that said “Terre Blue, Lavender Farm”. A dream of mine has always been to visit some of the lavender fields in Provence someday, and I had no idea the biggest lavender farm in Ontario was 15 minutes away from my house!…

oh kale yeah salad

Kale!!!  Last weekend, I got the best bunch of kale from our local farmers market.  I knew what I had to make with it – my favorite, easy, kale salad.  This salad is so versatile and works with lots of different toppings but this version is my personal favourite.   To make: in a medium…

oh the places you’ll go

Facebook reminded me where I was a year ago this week…I was babymooning it up in sunny California. Reuben and I LOVE to travel, so we booked our last hurrah to celebrate our last few months as a couple sans kids. We spent a week checking out San Francisco,  (that iconic Golden Gate bridge is…

Tuesdays can get a bad rap. Not as bad as Mondays, but they aren’t loved as much as Wednesdays or Fridays.   Tuesday is the day that is stuck in the middle of getting us halfway through the week, with it still being too far away from the weekend! During my hypnobirthing classes before I had…

I love this smoothie because the base is super simple, and you can add whatever fruit you have on hand to switch it up. I hate smoothies that are complicated with a million ingredients that you never have…

market mornings

Saturday mornings during Farmer’s Market season are my favourite. It’s the perfect excuse to get out of bed and get moving in the morning, (and have somewhere to go at 7am with a baby!). This Saturday morning in particular was amazing. The sun was shining, the breeze was beautiful (less humidity THANK YOU!) and the…
