I just had to hop on this (neglected) blog of mine and let all my mama friends, expecting mamas, friends of mama friends, etc. know about an awesome sale going on right now for my most favourite mama must have!! The baby wrap!! Our friends over at From The Avenue are excited to be opening their shop really soon, right now they are selling their awesome wraps though on Amazon for get this….$13.99. You guys, I have never ever seen a baby wrap for this awesome of a price. They come in three great neutral colours too. You could seriously get all 3 for this price and still not be paying as much as you would else where! It's crazy! So hop on over HERE and check it out! Baby wearing items are NUMBER 1 on my mommy must have list! 
Hudson STILL loves to be worn, in fact I put him in a wrap last night while I was tidying up the house and getting dinner ready. Best investment ever to keep baby close, happy and involved in their surroundings! 
We love to use our baby carriers while we are outside so that Hudson just touch and see everything! This kid is happiest when he gets to be outside learning with his eyes, ears and hands. His favourite thing right now is to point at stuff and have us tell him what it is or what sound something might make.
Sigh….Summer should last forever right?!

I hope you're all enjoying your summer sunshine time!

We will be spending this warm long weekend celebrating THREE things! Canada Day, Indepence Day AND my 27th Birthday! Wait…I'm turning TWENTY SEVEN!? Ah! Honestly, I had to ask my husband if that was actually correct haha. 

Canada has always been one of my favourite days to celebrate! We would always go to the parade, sometimes ride in the parade, have a BBQ, go for hikes, just spend lots of fun with our family and friends. Such a fun day! Oh and of course fireworks. Now that I live in the US and have a little family of my own, I still want to celebrate this day. It's a part of who I am and also a part of who Hudson is! So as we raise our little family we will make this day just as special as if we were in Canada to celebrate it! 

Independence Day is so fun here in the US! There is so so much to do and so many fun memories to make! I'm excited to continue celebrating this Holiday as a family as well. We will take any extra days with Daddy off of work! Bring on more parades, candy, food and fun!

My birthday…well where do I begin… This passed year has been the most amazing in SO many ways. It has also brought the most growth for me. Becoming a mom at twenty six helped me in a lot of different ways to find myself. It made me figure out my priorities, helped me figure out my strengths AND my weaknesses, it has made me ME. Is that weird to find yourself at twenty six? Odd that becoming a mom pushed me to become exactly who I have always been meant to be? I really have grown to LOVE myself during my twenty sixth year of life. I have found more patience than I ever thought possible, figured out who I want to be as a parent, I have also figured out more than ever who I am as an individual. By that I mean that I found my own passions and have followed them without hesitation and I am really proud of that. Most importantly though, this year, I have grown in SO MUCH LOVE. I feel more love for myself and for those around me than I have ever felt before. Honestly, twenty-six has been my favourite year yet! So I can't wait to see what twenty-seven has in store!

I hope you all have a fantastic long weekend, spent with family and friends and making the best memories! Thank you for sharing along in my little journey over here!
