FESTIVE FIZZ

Christmas Day has come and gone, but I’m still in a festive mood. We have New Year’s Eve coming in a few days, so what better way to celebrate the dawn of the new year than with this delicious drink I made for our annual Christmas Eve dinner. In 2016, I drastically cut down on my intake of soda because I didn’t want it to affect my twin babies’ development. You’ve read numerous articles about how sugary sodas can lead to erosion of your tooth enamel, or saps calcium from your bones. So when we found out we were expecting, my husband and…

CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR

Family. Food. Fun. The holiday season is my favorite time of the year. It brings all of our loved ones under one roof and around a dinner table where we can feast to our hearts’ content, crack jokes and play catch-up. There’s no denying food is a great way to bring people together and this year it’s going to be amazing having everyone under one roof celebrating and being merry. Ever since I moved to Toronto, I have been adding one or two new pieces of Christmas decor to my collection every year. This year, I wanted to create the…

It’s been a while since I have done a blog post. Between being sick with the nasty flu virus I got from my babies, setting up the house for the holidays, and tracking all of my packages, I have been mentally and physically drained trying to juggle it all. Now that I am over the flu, it feels amazing to be back and starting to roll out of all the content…

HANDLE THE HOLIDAYS WITH GRACE

Confession Time: The holidays have always been my favorite time of the year and also the most stressful. I love to sit down and make a list of all the loved ones in my life and identify the perfect gift that will bring them joy. It doesn’t stop there, I love to have all my family members gather under one roof celebrating the holidays together, exchange gifts right after we have consumed a Christmas dinner, and watch their eyes light up when they open them. The only part I am not a fan of is what happens days before the…
