Follow Your Passion

I took a bit of a break this week from blogging, mainly because I needed a break in my crazy life, but also because my mind has been super preoccupied with thinking about my passions and my life path.  Of course Sundays are the best days to think back over the week, so here I am!

Anyway, one of the things I have been trying to focus on is Mish Mash Flowers – my little at home business adventure.  I have been making these fruit, veggie/cheese flower bouquets for years now, mainly for friends and family.  But the more I have been making them, the more I realize I have found a passion.  I’m genuinly excited to make these and I LOVE the look on people’s faces when I hand them over.  L-O-V-E!  So, I am working on getting more active in promoting my little business adventure, preparing a price list, making more of my bouquets and I hoping to get this going;)

I thought I would share a few pictures with you of my work.  You can also follow my Instagram page here: Mish Mash Flowers

I Love To Shop At The Local Farmers’ Market And You Should Too!

Farmers’ Market … just thinking about it makes me feel SO good!  The smells, the colours, the food, the people, the atmosphere.  Fantastic feeling!

I am super lucky to live around many farms where farmers have summer stands, smaller and larger markets, and of course our very own Hamilton Farmers’ Market – open all year round!

Women Supporting Women!

I am thinking of all the women who have supported me in my life.  All the women who allowed me to be vulnerable, who allowed me to cry and held me in their arms.  All the women who listened.  All the women who, despite their own life turmoils, have been there for me.  I am thinking of all the women who gave me a kick in the behind when I needed it.  All the women who told me ‘be strong, you can do this’.  All the women who have been loving and caring and yet so STRONG.

Happy Birthday To My Baby and An Interview with a 4 Year Old!

Happy Birthday to my Daniel today!  My baby turns 4 years old and I’m a proud, proud mama!  On this day, 4 years ago, I became a mom once again and I knew at that moment my life was full.  I always wondered how it would be possible to have the same amount of love for your second child, as for your first.  And yet, there it was.  Love was just bursting from my heart!

‘Be Kind’ Kind of a Day

I have been doing a lot of soul searching in the past year or so, and I have been coming to the same conclusion over and over again:  no matter what life throws at me, I have no excuse to be unkind to others.  And yes, I get it, we all have days where we just want to hide away, stay in our bubble and not allow anyone in.  And that’s understandable.  Yes! BUT – there is no excuse for treating another poorly.  No excuse for being negative, mean, unkind, harsh, etc.  You get the point.

Painted Cottages in Poland

I read a fantastic blog post by Lamus Dworski this week, and I had to share it!  I hope you will enjoy seeing this beautiful folk art, as much as I did.  An absolute must see on my next trip to Poland!

Many of you might’ve already heard about Zalipie, a small village in southern Poland where an old custom still survives nowadays: houses are decorated in rich flowery patterns both on the inside and outside. Today I want to describe a short history of that custom for you, and also to show a few examples of […]
