I want you to wake up each morning looking forward to the day ahead instead of counting down the hours until bedtime, to actually enjoy your kids, home and life. Simplify is the name of the game. Every moment doesn’t have to be “Pinterest Perfect,” some days call for joggers, Happy Meals and iPads. Frankly, a lot of days do. I find it better to have these recharge days than to struggle through the entire week trying to play catch up.
Life Fling is here to share DIY Projects, family recipes, local YYC favourites and life hacks. Anything to make your life a little bit easier!
As an Interior Designer turned Stay-at-Home Mom I love discovering budget-friendly ideas with a minimalist Scandinavian feel. But this is real life and things need to be functional first.
I find DIY, decorating and painting very therapeutic and rewarding but maybe you don’t. Find what makes your heart sing, maybe it’s cooking, hiking or working. Whatever it is DO IT! Incorporate it into your life whenever possible. Get your kids involved. It shows them that you are more than “mom” and gives you opportunities to fill your bucket. I personally can only play Hot Wheels for so long before wanting to pull all my hair out but working on art projects, fixing stuff around the house or making a trip to Ikea is fun for everyone! This along with scheduled “Me Time” has allowed me to actually enjoy myself and be more present.
I am currently creating a delightful life here in Calgary, Alberta with my husband, son, and our two furry friends.
