Cats on Instagram

I absolutely love Instagram. The ability to share our lives in photos is such a fabulous concept to me. I usually find myself on Instagram late at night when my son wakes up to feed. I scroll through looking at what everyone has been up to throughout the day and often check the popular page to see what is new and exciting. It should come as no shock, but a good majority of the accounts I follow on Instagram are {Read More}

In my early 20s, I wrote a poem that still remains one of my very favourite. I wrote The Moment during a very hopeful time in my life and still {Read More}

My Family’s Cottonelle Care Routine #LetsTalkBums

Cottonelle Care Routine

Disclosure – I am participating in the Cottonelle #LetsTalkBums Care Routine blog tour by enCompass Media on behalf of Cottonelle. I received compensation as a thank you for participating and for sharing my honest opinion. The busiest room in our home, aside from the kitchen, is definitely the bathroom. While I prefer to be in and out of the bathroom as soon as possible, I find that my children tend to linger about. Maybe it is the quiet atmosphere, or {Read More}
