Just another 2 weeks and St. Patrick’s Day is here. Is it just me or is this year just flying by in a whirlwind? I have to say, Olivia is keeping me busier than ever before. So I squeezed in her 7-months picture update on Instagram just before the next months update will be due…

Baked Cheese Sticks with Leek and Chives

It’s the end of February! If it were up to me, spring could start March 1. We got a little foretaste of warmer weather over the last few days. And then everything changed in an instant. From 12C (53F) degree weather at noon to snow showers at supper time. Calgary weather is crazy, but at…

Spanakorizo - Greek Spinach Rice

Olivia and I returned from our trip to my parents over the weekend. As expected, Olivia was a trooper again. In the airport and on the plane she made everyone around her smile.

My week in Kelowna with my family is slowly coming to an end. Tomorrow – just in time for Valentine’s Day – Olivia and I fly back home to Calgary. It is so refreshing though, to have a change of scenery. I try to do very little blog work and savor the moments as much as possible….

It has been almost 2 years since I picked up yoga. But it was only yesterday that I bought my first yoga mat. You might think I have commitment issues, but I just didn’t want to invest in anything that I might not stick with. So in the beginning, I used one of those foam…

This morning Konrad is out to meet his brother for coffee. And so I could write this post, he took Olivia along! Konrad watching Olivia isn’t a big deal at all. But doing so not at home – but out in public – is. Somehow, whenever I needed a break, it was me leaving the…

This year will be our first Valentine’s Day since we had baby Olivia. I am not even sure, if we are going to do anything special. Having worked in the restaurant industry, I avoid certain places on regular Friday and Saturday nights already. The thought of going out on a busy Valentine’s Day Saturday is anything but…
