September 30th, 2016 marked 10 years of acreage living for my husband and me. Both of us grew up living out in the country for a good majority of our lives, but the land we currently have was the first property we purchased together. If you also live on acreage, you’ll know that it has its ups and downs. For us, I feel like the pros outweigh the cons, but on this 10th anniversary of acreage living, I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane and share a few best and worst personal memories of acreage life so far. Let’s get nostalgic and real for a few minutes and talk all about the nitty gritty of land and home ownership out in the country. Are you a homeowner too?

Let me share with you what happened when we took the TV away from the living room, and some things that the girls love to do now in this space that include Little C’s newest favourite toys – My Mini MixiQ’s!

It’s difficult for school-aged kids to avoid getting colds completely, but there are a few things that we mamas can do when our kids are hit by bugs. Here are my top 5 ways to deal when my girls get their back-to-school colds.Continue reading
