Day Trip to Banff

Day Trip to Banff

I can’t really pinpoint exactly why, but I’ve been a bit on edge and anxious lately. No specific reasons, just little pieces of many things. We’ve been trying to get to Canmore or Banff for over two years to go hiking as a family…but we continually put it off. When Jay suggested that we go […]

Farmer’s Favourite Flapper Pie

Catch the Moment Week 20

Catch the Moment Week 20

It only rained 2/10″ on May long weekend…but we’ll take it. We desperately need a good drink here for the crops right now. Something about this picture, just love it! Ethan still clings to certain babyisms and I cherish them very much. He still looooooooves to play with his feet! Hooray for handy husbands! Summer […]

How My Kobo Converted me to Digital Reading + Giveaway

Kobo Glo HD Review

I am a very tech-savvy person, but ever since eReaders have come out, you’d never convince me to try one. My mom has one and raves about it, but I love the feel (and especially the smell), of a new book in my hands. I love turning the top of the book towards me to see […]

Honey Garlic Meatballs

Honey Garlic Meatballs

I make this meal about every 6 weeks (or more!) for my family because it is my kids’ favourite meal by far. Even my can-be-picky toddler always asks for seconds of this meal. I don’t know what makes this meal all that special, but it is definitely a favourite around here! You will need: 2 […]

10 Years a Registered Nurse

10 Years a Registered Nurse

When I got the email for my high school reunion (which never ended up happening) in 2011, I didn’t feel old. When I turned 30 two years ago, or even when I turned 32 a month ago, I didn’t feel old. What makes me feel old? The 10 year anniversary of graduating from university with […]

Dear MyHealth.Alberta.ca: You’ve Got It Wrong About Agriculture

Dear MyHealth.Alberta.ca- You've Got It Wrong About Agriculture

Awhile ago a reader and fellow Alberta resident emailed me with a concern about a document found on the MyHealth.Alberta.ca website titled “Organic and Chemical-Free Food“, which is found under the “Healthy Living” and then “Healthy Eating” sub-menus. Before I get started, what is the “MyHealth” website? Taken directly from the site, it is described […]
