Psssttttt ... I'm going to be making an in-store appearance at @melanieauldjewelry 's beautiful new boutique this THURSDAY, August 8th from 3pm - 6pm!! Will I see you there?!
A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest, It broke our hearts to see you go, God only takes the best They say that memories are golden, Well maybe that is true, But we never wanted memories, We only wanted you, Your life was love and labour Your love for your family true You did your best for all of us, We will always remember you. We sat beside your bedside, Our hearts were crushed and sore, We did our duty to the end, 'Til we could do no more. In tears we watched you sinking, We watched you fade away, And though our hearts were breaking, We knew you could not stay. Our lips cannot speak how we loved you, Our hearts cannot tell what to say, But God only knows how we miss you, In our home that is lonely today. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ LOVE YOU GRANDMA. TODAY WE WILL LOVE YOU, CELEBRATE YOU, AND FOREVER WE WILL CARRY ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL LEGACY AND MAKE YOU PROUD ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
I could sit and watch her in this moment forever 🛁 ♥️
Eenie meenie miney mo ... how can you choose just ONE of these beautiful pillows from @clothandmain from the JH x @etsyca summer collection?! I’ve had these outside now since May… Although I probably should, I haven’t brought them in… They’ve sat out in the sun, in the rain, the dogs have laid on them and they still look brand new. Handmade in Canada… The quality is so legit, and might I mention again designed by yours truly!
@nachocilantro is SUPER impressed with my 1M announcement. 😂 ... but in all serious… You guys, thank you SO much. Thank you for your patience and watching me grow, thank you for encouraging me, loving me and my family, teaching me, making me laugh, inspiring me, and being on this journey with me. I love you all like my own family… And I am so damn proud to have 1 million of you to share my life with. 🤯♥️😭🥰🎈
Poolside pizza just got THAT much better thanks to @panago_pizza and their new pizzas featuring (drumroll ... please! ) @beyondmeat Italian Sausage Crumble! That's right, you can now get @beyondmeat on 4 recipe pizzas and create-your-own pizzas! We tried them all, how could we not?! The Beyond Spicy Calabrese paired perfectly with our pool day, but you should also try the Beyond Summer BBQ. Make it plant-based with Daiya Cheeze, a summer MUST HAVE!
Hmmm ... I wonder what he's thinking?? 🤔🧐 Who has the best guess? LOL!
Happy Birthday to my huckleberry Blondie BFF. The girls were always meant to come this weekend for our annual girls weekend. When granny passed, they asked if they should cancel their trip. My granny LOVED my girlfriends. These girls have been “my girls” for 30+ years they are my family and I knew nothing would make my heart full like a good weekend with them. So today we celebrate @sohoblondie Thank you Shan for 30+ years of unconditional friendship, love, travels, adventures, tears, heartbreaks, discoveries, shopping & learning. I love you! Happy Birthday!
Reminiscing about yesterday ... if only every Monday could look like this ... 😂🤞🏼
The girls and I don't get to do this very often, but when we get the chance to have an impromptu girl's night in, we make sure to do it right! That includes popping a bottle (or two 😉🍾 ) of @lamarcaprosecco_ca and loading up on snacks! Check out the video on my Facebook page to see how we made girl's night SPARKLE ... and if we mastered the perfect pour! #MakeEveryDaySparkle #Ad
Don’t hate me because I get into EVERYTHING 😬😂 @peachespasutto
Okay... does it get any cuter??? ♥️♥️♥️ @justinpasutto (ps if you zoom in too can see Leo’s breakfast in the form of a candy ring and Annies Joy )
This pasta bowl from @lookslikewhite is the perfect addition to your summer entertaining! 🍝 In fact, I was so excited about bringing this into our Jillian Harris x @etsyca collection that I bought three right off the hop! One to keep at home and one to hand down to Annie and Leo when they have families of their own. 😭😭😭 #jhxetsysummer
Saturday running around with the fam... such a good day. At first I was like WTF happened to my legs!!!??? And then I realized that’s just how dirty the mirror is 😬😂👍

If you've been watching my IG stories you'll know I've taken on a new challenge and that is to reduce the amount of garbage and recycling in our home! While this week didn't really pan out how I would have liked, next week things are getting serious around here! Looking forward to keeping you all up to date with my new journey via stories! Also, it's Plastic Free july this month and I've shared a few ways we're working toward eliminating single-use plastic in our household... I’ll also be updating the blog at the end of the month to share what I learned and additional changes we are making... don’t worry, I’ll also be sharing our epic fails... like diapers and suvs 😬😩 .... but I read an amazing quote the other day “we don’t need a few people doing it perfectly, we need millions of people doing it imperfectly!”
You asked ... and we listened ... the Jillian Harris x @SajeWellness aromaOm diffuser IS BACK IN STOCK!! That's right, it's available to purchase (for a limited time! ) online only! I can't wait for you to welcome it into YOUR home! (Link in profile )

Head to today’s blog to catch my FULL recap plus more photos!

Baby Led Weaning ... so many questions and so many opinions out there... For us I found it was just easiest… no purée prep, no jars or packs (except for when we are on the road ) ... no making separate meals for the baby. The biggest piece of advice I have… Is have fun with it, introduce New flavours textures spices… The works! Get those little taste buds going! What are some of your babies favourite foods???
Yesterday we shared a fun blog a lot of you have been asking about! Our solids journey with Annie!!!! We did baby led weaning with Leo (BLW ) and loved it, Annie is already a natural eater and loves pretty much anything so it’s been fun! Check out the full blog by clicking the link in profile!!!
It's Plastic Free July and today I wanted to share one of the steps we're taking as a family to reduce single-use items in our home (though we haven’t totally mastered it quite yet! ) This includes swapping to package free shampoo and conditioner bars from @unwrappedlife ! Unwrapped Life's products are made from naturally-derived active ingredients and scented with 100% essential oils and just so happen to be vegan! Not only do their shampoo and conditioner bars work wonders for my hair type but I also fell in love with their products on an environmentally-conscious level as well as they are plastic-free and have no packaging! Ps. @unwrappedlife is offering YOU a discount code for your next purchase in support of Plastic Free July! From now until July 31st feel free to use PFJilly15 upon checkout! (Check our the blog, link in profile to check out some of our other swaps!!, l’ll be transparently sharing of the ups and downs of this journey throughout the month of July… And doing a recap at the end of the month as to how I felt it went!! )
