a video from our family trip to mont tremblant, quebec!

 

hiiiiiiii! how are you? thank you for being patient with me as my blog has taken a back seat while i finish writing my book. between the writing, the kid rearing, the longest winter ever and sickness fest 2.0 happening AGAIN over here, i’m a little bit all over the place right now. i also i told myself i wouldn’t watch the bachelor this season because life is bonkers but i got sucked in last week when i was up soothing a little one in the night and now i have to add that drama to my crowded headspace (i mean, gladly!...
