Living in the city is great, no doubt about it; however, our family needs to reconnect with nature for at least a couple of weeks a year to enjoy the re-energizing effects of country living. One way we get revitalized is by going camping!Add a comment

Our school has a bake sale tomorrow, and I’m making some fairy cupcakes for the sale. Hopefully they will be success for both fairies and parents. I’m using edible flowers as décor on lemon cupcakes. In this recipe I’m using pansies but nasturtiums and violets will also work.Add a comment
Algonquin, Our home away from home
Guest blog Melodie Percy
Its' safe to say that when it comes to camping in Ontario, I'm completely biased. From the age of two my family, aunts, uncles and grandparents included, loaded up our cars and headed up to Algonquin Park. We did it a few times a year, even winter but my favourite time was always our end of summer trip during the last three weeks of August. The importance of connecting with nature and being in tune with the universal rhythm was instilled at a young age and has become part of who I am. Now as a mom of three myself, I share this with my own children.
Are you happy spring is here? So am I, love the smell of the earth and to watch the trees bud and the wonderful spring flowers. Nothing wrong about Mister Frost, but I love that is easier to go outside with the kids, less outdoor wear to put on. Spring has some rituals for me and the kids and most of them are connected to the outdoors.Add a comment
In Toronto I’m lucky to live only a 15 minute walk to the beach. So now that the weather has been nice, after school we often jump on our bikes and ride to the beach. Being by the beach is an amusement for old and new. Today they had fun throwing rocks in the water and making land art.Add a comment
