Happy New Year!

September 3, 2015 , In: Figuring it Out, Motherhood , With: 2 Comments


I know it’s only September but even though my kids aren’t in school yet the shift from summer to fall still feels like a new year to me and a fresh start.  I had a great summer but my recent life has pretty much consisted of time spent with the kids and walking around in a lead suit from sleep deprivation.  All understandable during the first year with a baby.

Now that my son is sleeping through the night, hopefully I’ll start to catch up on the sleep deprivation and not have to stick a gallon of concealer under my eyes to hide the black circles.  I still don’t know what I’m going to do so in the meantime Alex is home with me full time while I try and figure out the next stage of my life.

Here is a random list of some things I want to do and don’t want to do for the foreseeable future:

To Do:

  • eat out, in a restaurant, without toddler or baby throwing food around (yesssss)
  • entertain at our house more often (we owe a lot of lovely meals)
  • decorate the house but only with stuff I love (hard…  but I have a project in mind!)
  • explore Montreal beyond my neighbourhood (Mile End has probably started getting skyscrapers since I was there last)
  • be more spontaneous (deciding last minute to go to the park does not count)
  • Get fitted for a bra once breastfeeding has stopped (I am actually dreading this…)
  • Decide what activities to enrol my 3 year old in (so hard!  so many options! so difficult to not overbook!  he’s only 3!)

To Not Do:

  • Waste random time on the internet (does the time I am writing this count?)
  • Wear the same thing 5 days in a row (I’m looking at you denim skirt)
    • Cindy

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
