And just like that L2 is another month older! This past month has been really busy for me with school but we’ve still found the time to be somewhat social and hang out with lots of baby (and mommy!) friends! … Continue reading
32 weeks! We are down to single weekly digits! It’s hard to believe that had my complication not cleared up, I would have been heading into the hospital this week! We are definitely glad that is no longer an issue … Continue reading
Now that I am past 6 months and have a decent-sized bump, I only have a limited amount of clothes that fit. I’ve figured out that the trick is to try to make those items look different with layers (cardigans, … Continue reading
While Toronto has been having a pretty good winter so far, I’m still totally over the cold! Today I wore a summer dress but made it winter appropriate with a sweater, boots, tights and socks. Like this post? Check out … Continue reading
I am forever struggling with our entryway. I think my issue stems from all the stuff we have and the lack of a formal front hall (including a closet). I have some big plans to change up the system we … Continue reading
I have the day off today which means that I’m getting an early start to my long weekend! I’m currently sitting in the passport office waiting for my number to be called so don’t get too excited 🙂
We are staying in town this Family Day long weekend but have a ton of plans…
Playdates, visits with both sets of parents, swimming (x 2), skating and a special V-tines dinner with M.
Once I’m done with the passports, I’m planning to do some shopping for new winter boots and mitts (in preparations for my new commute with my new job which starts on Thursday), do a full grocery shop (which unfortunately hasn’t happened in a while) and maybe even squeeze in a nap.
Do you have plans for Family Day?
This post has been months in the making but I guess late is better than never! The ELM Life has been busy lately and I have some exciting updates to share: 1. I reached the 20,000 views mark earlier this … Continue reading
I think I can now officially add seasoned traveler to my list of accomplishments… I’ve have been featured in Meandering Mac’s Wayfarer Wednesday series! Ashley, the author of the blog, is an old friend of mine who I have knows … Continue reading
Here is my fortune from dinner tonight… Thanks to everyone for reading my blog and showing the love!
Welcome to The ELM Life!
The start of the New Year is often coupled with the commitment to achieve some form of personal goal. My resolution for 2013 is to start a blog. I’ve been thinking about it for some time and after some encouragement from a friend and fellow blogger, I decided to take the plunge!
There are a few different personal benefits of blogging that I want to take advantage of:
- Foster my creativity
- Expand my social network to include other like-minded individuals
- Document my life as it speeds past me way quicker than it should
So, what is my blog going to be about? Short answer – my life as a mom. Honest answer – I haven’t entirely nailed it down yet 🙂
I envision a project-based lifestyle blog which covers off all the facets of my life and making it work on a day-to-day basis. I love planning and organizing and using those skills to try and create a more efficient house and home life.
The name of my blog – The ELM Life – is a descriptor of my life in the simplest sense. E, L, and M are the initials of the most important people in my life; my husband and our two beautiful daughters. My life is all about them and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Enjoy your visit and I hope to see you again soon!
