Advent Calendar shopping on a Monday

October 23, 2017

It is such a blasé Monday because I just came back from my 20th reunion in my hometown with family and friends and Monday is hitting me so hard.  When this happens I try to add a little excitement to my life to make me feel better, so today it’s all about advent calendars for […]

I take baked goods very seriously.  I’m not always very good at chemistry, or measuring or even following directions very well, so I truly appreciate how magical it is when a bunch of ingredients come together in an oven and make something spectacular like a birthday cake.

Time to get Thankful on a Monday

October 4, 2016

How are you this whirlwind Monday?  Can you believe it’s October already?  For my family, this means it’s time to think about our first Thanksgiving of the year.  We celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving in the second week of October and then American Thanksgiving in November.
