Nothing calms my soul more than spending a weekend on Lake Champlain

My mom owns a boat and yes, people always stare at us! Who said a women can’t drive a boat? My mom is just plain awesome! I’m very lucky to be able to spend my weekends cruising on Lake Champlain in Vermont and New York. It’s just a 20 minute drive south from the border and it […]

Lisbon family vacation (part 2)

Lisbon without the tramway would be like Paris without the Eiffel Tower. We really fell under the charm of Lisbon’s squeaky old tramways. Especially the ones running up and downhill. We were very thankful for the tram, because with its 7 steep hills, Lisbon was quite a sport with a one year old. As one of the oldest […]

The greatest ride of my life!

Whoa how time flies! My baby girl will be turning two at the end of the summer and looking back I can’t believe how becoming a mom has been such a life-changing and challenging experience. It was not easy and I was far from the perfect, all smiles type of mom. I had so many ups and downs and even had […]

Travel // Awesome vacation in Deerfield Beach, Florida

Hey all! I’m back from our 2 week vacation in Deerfield Beach Florida. What a great trip! I always love to go to Florida because it feels like home but with palm trees, sun and beaches. I woke up to this every morning… It was our second Florida trip with our little Mila and she was a […]

The best season of all is here!

Who doesn’t love October? The leaves are turning all kinds of vibrant colours and I love how the sun gives off this warm soft glow. I think Autumn has become my favorite season. Sorry summer! Autumn just makes me ache to take my camera outdoors. That’s exactly what I did this weekend, along with my sister, daughter […]

I have the bad habit of never ending what I have started, especially when I realize that it’s not exactly as I had envisioned it or that it’s taking longer than I had expected. So that makes hundreds of unfinished projects. But as a mother I’ve come to realize that perfection doesn’t exist. Even if I […]

A taste of Boston

Hi folks! I’m alive and well if you’ve been wondering where the heck I’ve been, just been taking care of my sweet and very energetic little Mila. Now that she’s almost one I need to get working again! I’ve really put off cooking (other than purees), traveling and writing but man do I have things to share […]

Maple lovin’

It’s that time of year again, time to head to the sugar shack! It’s really one of my favorite outings of the year. The sugar shack is such an explosive experience for my taste buds, I just love it! For the real experience it’s best to head to a small family-run sugar shack far from the city that offers the traditional […]

The legend of the hummingbird

Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation. I say we should all try to be more like the hummingbird. To float through life with grace. […]
