Dominic’s Story: Part 2

With no time to think or process, we were quickly whisked away to the admitting department, and after another lengthy paperwork process, I had my hospital bracelet, the clothes on my back, and a starchy hospital bed up on the prenatal high-risk ward.

2020: What This Year Taugh Me

2020. Wow. What a year. I think it’s safe to say that 2020 was hard. Really hard. Unexpectedly hard. I distinctly remember sitting at my neighbor’s house on December 31, 2019 playing cards and toasting in the New Year while all the kiddos watched a movie downstairs,...

My Momma

A Bit About Me: Family Edition

So I hummed and hawed over what to write for my first official “lifestyle” post. Do I talk about cake? Do I start back at my first childhood memory and go from there? (Don’t worry…I decided against that one 😉) Do I recite to you my most favourite high school...

My Covid-19 Perspective

My Covid-19 Perspective

I hummed and hawed over if I should write about this whole global pandemic thing. Let’s face it, we are all feeling a bit perhaps “saturated” with Covid-19 talk. It’s in the news. It’s in every social media scroll. Neighbours are talking about it over fences. We’re...
