Collecting Memories

December 30, 2016 // Pure Mama, Vancouver // 3 Comments

I’m totally that person who does the, ‘One year ago today this happened’ or ‘Last year at this time we were…’. It drives my husband kind of nuts but I can’t help being reflective. I feel all the feels and […]

Should You Have A Baby Shower After The First Baby?

August 17, 2016 // Parenting, Pure Mama, Uncategorized // 3 Comments

Mastering My Motherhood

June 16, 2016 // Parenting // 2 Comments

Sweaters and Lattes

September 14, 2015 // Parenting // 2 Comments

It seems that with the return of the school year and the end of summer we’ve been spending more time inside each evening. Those earlier sunsets means less time for after dinner park romps or bicycle rides. We’ve traded in our later BBQ […]

Purposefully Slow: A Love Story

It’s been two weeks since I gave birth to my third baby and I’m blissfully soaking it all in without worrying about getting back to normal. I am not rushing around or making too many plans or even putting on […]
