We just got back from Cuba yesterday and had an amazing vacation. The sun was hot, the water was warm and the drinks were cold. A definite recipe for the perfect getaway! Here are some of the highlights from our trip… … Continue reading
How is it already the end of April? I feel like I have missed the last couple months!
I am writing this post from 35,000 feet in the air en route to Banff for a conference. When I get back to Toronto, M and I are taking the girls to Niagara for a couple days at Great Wolf Lodge. Everyone is looking forward to some time away.
Starting in May, things are going to finally slow down a little for me. As I shared with you all back in February, I started a new job. What I didn’t mention is that it is only 3 days a week but up until just this week, I was working the new job plus 2 days a week at my old job to wrap things up. I am now officially finished at my old job (although I am continuing with one of my projects as an out-of-office consultant, but that is another story!) and excited for 4 day weekends every week! I am so pumped to have more time for hanging out with the girls, completing projects around the house and attempted improvements to my domestic goddess self (like maybe doing some chores or cooking legit meals).
As if this isn’t enough of a change, I found out earlier in April that I was accepted to do my Masters! I am officially going to grad school in the fall! I’m a little nervous about the prospect of going back to school but am also very excited for this challenge and the opportunities it will open up for me.
I will be off the grid for a few days while I’ll be travelling but I’ll check in next week. Enjoy the weekend!
M and I had been talking about taking a weekend away – just the 2 of us – for a few months now. We decided on Boston and had a great few days in the city. Of course L got sick … Continue reading
I’ve been back from NYC for just under a week now. It was a great trip and for anyone who saw my itinerary, it was jam packed with activities. The itinerary I posted earlier only had the activities listed but … Continue reading
So I leave for NYC tomorrow morning… squee!
The last time I was in NYC, it was with M when L was about 10 months old. NYC with a baby didn’t exactly give me the opportunity to fully experience this amazing city. This time around, I am travelling with my mum and we are staying right in Times Square.
While I am definitely going to miss M and the girls, I am looking forward to some good eats, lots of shopping and of course some female bonding!
