island time 

Every summer we spend time on the island, Prince Edward Island that is. When you're a regular it's called the island (or at least our family thinks so) even if we'll always be from-away. My mom lives here on a riverbank just outside Charlottetown and every time I come I love it more and more.…

for the (sweet) record

So just to be clear, I don't think people who feed their children sugar are the devil. I don't think not eating sugar is some sort of superior-practice that has a good and bad camp. I'm not dualistic nor here to judge. What I can only hope to do is help inspire families to know…

Move First

She's like: "No, even more unbelievable." Her husband…

Not a boring life.

In my 20's I had an underlying feeling that turned into a legit fear of living a boring life. Yes, the prospect of a traditional, normal, ordinary time was what kept me up at night. (Boo hoo!) I look at it now and chuckle because there is little that is truly unique these days and what…
