My Halifax Baby Shower

Pregnancy Update – Month 8

By Friday, March 18, 2016

ONE MONTH. This is going to be a very long post. Stay with me! Around 33 weeks, on our 8th anniversary (February 29th) I feel like a blog post could never sum up the last 30 days. It's not so much that a lot has happened (although there ...

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd say HOLY BLIZZARD! Ottawa is getting hit badly today. We're pretty sure we'll have to shovel/snow blow twice! It's awfully pretty, but if you must drive today, be safe! If we were chatting over ...

10 Tips for Selling Things on Kijiji

By Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Over the last five years, I've become a bit of a Kijiji connoisseur. I've bought many, many things on Kijiji (everything from furniture to iPhones to crutches), but I've sold even more. For the record, I am a huge fan of living with less. Things don't ...
