Living after the motto, “no bad weather only bad clothing”, means we pay a lot of attention to how we dress for the weather. Not only does that apply for me and the kids but also my filmmaker husband whose job takes him from the arctic to steamy jungles. (Sometimes in the same week)
I often hear some parents say that kids don’t need the same quality as adults. I understand they don’t want to spend too much money on clothes kids outgrow, but I think our kids deserve to get well dressed for the seasons for both comfort and movement. Being dress for the weather is the first critical step to embracing the seasons.Add a comment
I remember my childhood pre- Christmas time and my advent calendar. Now that I’m a mother myself, I love to create and carry-on traditions for my children. The holiday time is such a great time to create new family traditions. For this year’s Advent calendar, our family was inspired by nature. If you have followed me a little before, you know I have a special love for bringing nature inside whenever I get the chance.

When I was first asked about how we celebrated the Holiday Season and whether we celebrated an outside Christmas or not, I thought “are you crazy?”It’s winter in Calgary and there’s no way I’m sitting in the snow opening my Christmas gifts. I want to be toasty warm in my living room sitting by my fireplace, my family all gathered round, with the Christmas tree shining in the background.We don’t even have a real Christmas tree because we like to put it up by mid-November to extend the season.But then I thought some more and I realized that we DO celebrate Christmas outside in our own special way. No Christmas would be complete without skating, skiing, sledding, and outdoor fun in the snow. Maybe it’s time to bring Christmas outside and to think outside the box a bit when planning for the upcoming holiday season.Add a comment
Well, it's that time of year. When my first son was little I did bring him in to a studio to get some pictures taken, but once we got a decent camera I decided that I'd take all of their pictures, and we do it outside, of course.My in-laws have a cranberry bog right behind their house which is also a Christmas tree farm (we got our Christmas tree there last year!) So it's basically one stop shopping for outdoor holiday photography.Add a comment
