June in numbers

I have this post brewing, but no drive to complete it. I've been spending my moments cuddling my munchkins, swimming with friends and  watching thunderstorms with my husband. When tragedy strikes, I find that I turn inwards and have a difficult time doing the normal things that bring me joy. Part of me just wants to carry the cross for Mel and take away her pain. The other part of me just wants to soak up every minute I'm graced with. So continuing the peaceful silence from Friday's post, I will keep my friend and her family in my heart and will be back blogging when it feels right again.

Because I normally do the month in review post, here is the link up. I'll get to my post some other time.


  1. Take all the time you need and I'm sending you the biggest virtual hug ever!

  2. Oh no!!! I took a little blogging break myself last week and was just about to catch up on all your posts... I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, Deena. Ugh, not an easy thing to deal with. I hope you are getting through this and enjoying the 4th of July weekend with your fam!

  4. so sorry friend... take ALL the time you need, we'll be here

  5. Big hugs friend. Thanks for be real and being honest. Continued prayers.

  6. Continued prayers for you and Mel. Just take each day as you can. Hold those babies even closer. I think that is the hardest part of having your babies grow up and be successful adults somewhere a zillion miles away from home....I miss the hugs.

  11. Definitely let the blog slide and return to it as and when you can - other things are your focus now, quite rightly. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  12. Thinking about you! Hugs! Take all the time you need. The blog will be here when you are ready! That is part of the beauty of blogging!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
