Is Valentine’s Day all it’s cracked up to be?

Valentine's Day card heart pink renewed with love bridal Ottawa gift Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about sharing the love, whether with your partner, spouse, besties, or your family. Singles typically loathe the glorified holiday since it is essentially designed to guilt-trip you into pondering why you are alone, and technically so do many couples since it has been socially twisted and marketed to get those in relationships to drop a ton of cash or be accused of not loving the other enough.

Christmas 2016 – What Are Your Holiday Traditions?

holiday-card-christmas-noel-foil-pressed-decor-decal-gold

Every family has traditions, whether they be holiday related or not. One of the most interesting things in a new relationship is finding a way to combine those traditions together, and create new ones of your own. Since our families live so far apart, we find ourselves hopping back and forth between them, leaving very little time for ourselves and to come up with elaborate new traditions. We started small, and for our first Christmas together, we decided that instead of spending a ton of money on potentially useless expensive gifts for each other, that we would put the money towards saving up for a down payment on our future home, and buy each other an ornament for our Christmas tree instead. Christmas 2016 was no different! View Full Post “Christmas 2016 – What Are Your Holiday Traditions?”

Blogging in the 613

inspirational-life-quote-begin-again-alan-cohen-perfect-conditions-stephanie-de-montigny-baby-tree, blogging in the 613

The first post often sets the tone for the entire blog, and frankly I think that is a little boring. Instead, I have decided that I am going to start us off with an off-topic post, which means you will have to ponder and guess as to what the blog is actually about. Since this post has so far been about nothing, the blog could technically be about everything! I thought for hours on what to write about and decided there was nothing good enough to be the first post. The thing is, there is no such thing as perfect in life. There is no perfect time or place to start, no perfect topic, no perfect beginning. So here we are, taking the first step; making the most of what you have and not being afraid to be yourself. Now, onto more blogging in the 613.
