I am married to the love of my life, Jason. We have two wonderful little girls, Evie who is 3, and Addie who is 3 months. I started blogging after our oldest was born, but I also work as an educational assistant. Growing up I lived in Burnaby, Aldergrove, and Langley. My husband and I currently live in Surrey and love our little community that is constantly growing. There’s lots in our area within walking distance, but we don’t mind driving to go explore places with our kids.
