We're Back!

Sometimes it feels just as good to come home as it does to go on holidays. We had such a fun, relaxing break from daily life while we were away (thanks for not giving up on me and my blog on my little hiatus!), but it is kind of refreshing how much we've been motivated to do since we got home.

We did all our favorite things, spent lots of time catching up on the sunshine it feels like we've been missing here at home, and had lots of laughs. Sean falling through a screen door will forever make me giggle uncontrollably (regretably, no photo of that moment).

A day at the beach with my Dad, despite being cloudy and overcast, was probably my single favorite adventure.

And of course we did the obligatory Disney stay, which was a blast, yet soooo tiring.

But we are back at it and have been excited about the warm weather that is finally signalling Spring here at home! Mainly because we are going to tackle a bathroom reno upstairs in Wren's bathroom as well as our staircase (FINALLY!!!!). I have so many ideas and plans that I will share here and some fun news I'll be unveiling in the next week or so with one of my favorite bloggers.

VIVA LA WARM WEATHER!!!

Joyful by My Daughter Fragrance Giveaway!

I am soooo very excited about this giveaway! You may have seen the Joyful perfume ad on my sidebar before, and I am thrilled to share more about it today. Joyful is a scent by My Daughter Fragrances, which is a company started and run by a local Edmonton mom. Janey is probably one of the sweetest ladies out there and she has created an absolutely stunning scent. 

Not only was is dreamed up by Janey, but she literally hand cures, filters and bottles all the raw materials that she gets from France. Every bottle is a labor of love, and I can promise you that it shows. The scent is fresh, vibrant and happy. Joyful is the perfect expression to describe it.

Life in Paradise

Sorry for the radio silence guys! My laptop died over a week ago and I am making the transition to Mac (I'm sure it will be great, but I don't deal well with change!). No sooner had my laptop bit the dust than we hopped on a plane to California for some much needed rest and relaxation. We had so much happening in March with at least two bouts of flu, countless trips to the dentist between all of us, and my endless hunt for the next flip project (and a fun upcoming announcement I will be sharing in a few weeks that I've been working on) it seems like the whole month went by in the blink of an eye. 

So we are slowing down for the next couple weeks. And while I may not have a slew of decor related posts I will have no shortage of pictures of warm weather and lush palm trees. Which is exactly what I've been longing for after our endless winter.

Is there anything more fun than cannon ball contests? I think not.
