Join in Simple Saturdays
Around here I'm doing less blogging and more emailing. Sign up to get the bi-weekly email Simple Saturdays in your inbox.
You will love it. It isn't just any old email! It is a fun, quick read of insights, tips and references for everything simple, on purpose, and waffles.
There have been three times when my marriage was most strained (code: here marriage counsellor, take all our money #worthit) Those times were amplified when we first moved in together after a year together (at 22 and 19), when we were first married and Conor worked camp work, and when we had our second baby.

A few months ago I decided to put Simple on Purpose on hold. It had been an easy choice to put this blog on the back burner for a while. I have never relied on it for any income, I had some exciting projects to get off the ground with A Little Light and I […]
Hey there fine reader! Big announcement! Starting April 1st Raj from Pink Chai Living, and I, are hosting another month of the 30for30 challenge. That is, wearing 30 items of clothes for 30 days, in 30 ways. This time around we are teaming up with some great bloggers from all over Canada and the US. It […]
A couple years back we did our first A Day in the Life Round up. I and fourteen other West Coast parent bloggers shared what a day in our life was like. We are bringing the series back for another round! I love a day in the life posts. Maybe because I really genuinely wonder […]
I’ve said before that I’m no parenting expert and I think it’s humorous when people ask my parenting advice cause it’s something like. . . . just be the mom you are, coffee and Jesus, and pair your sweats with red lipstick. Who is ready for my advice column?! But, as with the desperation that […]
This week the #wholemama prompt word is ‘build’. I’ve been thinking of different things I could write around this word but wasn’t really sinking into any of them. Then I had a text conversation with a mombestie and I told her that I admired the culture she was building in her family. What I mean by […]
Yay! It’s #fiveonfriday. A free for all to share a list of “five things” with you. I love it because I can write about anything and everything. Like “Five Reasons You MUST Read or Watch the Outlander” (which would pretty much look like this. . . Reasons 1-4: Jamie and Claire, Reason 5: Scotland. And by […]
I’ve been up for the past 6 hours, well ‘officially’ up. I spent the night rocking two sick toddlers hoping they wouldn’t wake the third. This isn’t news to anyone with toddlers. Sleep is elusive as Curious George’s tail (thanks Rae, I’ll never consider him a monkey again!) My morning has been spent making snacks […]
Hey there lovely readers. Did I every tell you about the time I put myself into the ER with a ridiculous self-inflicted injury? Here is how the story goes, as I wrote it out last month. . . A couple of days ago my eye started hurting. Each morning I wake it is redder and sorer […]
My oldest son is five today. I’ve always thought I was a little strange because my kids’ birthdays have come and gone without much nostalgia on my part. I have never been sad to see a birthday pass because I had just spent the last year trying to get them to the ‘next step’ of […]
