I blame my mom for this crazy simple life I never knew I’d love this much. My mom was a stay at home mom when we were young.  She spoiled us with love and made our lives seem like a constant fairytale.   Every day was simply special.

My mom baked for my sister and I since we were old enough to eat a cookie and she loved baking well before we were born.  She still makes all the same recipes from our childhood and my sister and I love baking her recipes and most importantly eating her batches of her yummy cookies.  She still uses the same cookie cutters and that makes her cookies that much more anticipated every year!

Both my parents were obsessed with holidays!  They took pride in every detail from decorating, cooking, gift ideas and packaging!  I think having two parents with that passion has made me that much more obsessed with any holiday.  I just hope I can pass this passion onto my children.

After getting married to my Prince Charming we had two, most of the time, wonderful children Claire and Xavier.  I am an honours graduate in Child and Youth Work and decided to give up my career outside the home and create a new one that I love and cherish.  I opened a home daycare almost three years ago and it has been an amazing challenge and so rewarding. 

I decided after passing recipes and craft ideas through e-mail to family and friends I would start a blog that will hopefully become a useful tool for people interested in great ideas that inspire me in my life.  I hope that you will enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
