We have been searching for well over a year for the perfect (forever) family home. Mike and I bought our first apartment together when we were 25 and then a townhouse when we were 30, right before I found out I was pregnant with Aliyana. We’d like to think the stars aligned for us because […]

Our last trip of the summer was a great one! You’ve probably heard this many times but COVID allowed us to explore our own backyard and it led us to The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake. It was our first time there and it left me with some beautiful family vacation memories and a calendar reminder […]

Dear Magali Grace, It’s been one year since you greeted us earth-side with your first cry in the operating room. I remember when Dr. Rosengarten lifted you over the curtains at the hospital, I broke down in tears. Going into the OR, I had no idea how I was going to feel and the minute […]

With everything canceled and not being able to leave the house regularly, trying to keep them engaged and excited has been such a wild ride! Set schedules don’t work in our home because 1. my kids are […]

I recently added a little vanity/getting ready area and a reading nook to Aliyana’s bedroom. I should’ve done the getting area a little earlier but I was definitely procrastinating…. nonetheless, it’s finally up and she LOVES it! The why behind this update is to promote more independence when getting ready in the morning or for […]

I still oftentimes catch myself saying “Good Job” to everything Aliyana and Magali does well-ish. Even when it’s a daily routine or an activity and it ends with something remotely good, I hear myself shouting good job across the hall. “Good Job, you put on your shoes!

After having relatively larger parties for Aliyana first two birthdays, I realized I wanted to do something different for her 3rd. Birthday celebrations usually come along with a lot of ‘stuff’ and we are so beyond blessed to have such generous friends and family that love her so much. However, as you know I’m not […]

The time has finally come to close one chapter and introduce another. This has been on my mind for a few years now – pretty much since I closed Confetti & Co. 4 years ago. Today, I think I’m finally ready. I know it’s just an instagram handle but so many memories, connections and friendships […]
