Why do we use The Pet Food Waggin’?

Earth Day Reflection 2018

On Earth Day, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on what we’re doing and goals to work towards.

Our biggest overall goal is to be on our own plot of land, homesteading and living the dream.

For now though, we’re doing our best to care for mama Earth in our own way.

Here’s what we’re up to…and goals for the year to come

MIT: Air Plant Workshop

This moment in time is brought to you by L’s current living situation.

Where I currently live has limited space and sun for indoor plants. I have a singular window to work with…so when my friend suggested attending an air plant workshop, I jumped on the opportunity.

As you may have noticed, we have a strong love for plants both indoors and outdoors. We’ll eventually write up a post about our plethora of other indoor plants that live happily in our apartment!

So why air plants? They require minimums – no direct sunlight, little watering… perfect for my current situation. They also take a bunch of junk out of the air, which is also great! You can read more about air plants here.

Shop Local Sunday: Doula!

Did you know… Doula week just happened?!

It sure did!

Although we aren’t on a journey to starting a family yet… I thought it would be fitting to start our Shop Local Sundays with a close friend (who is a Doula!)

Why I’d choose Brielle to be my Doula…

  • She’s a great friend, mom and wife.
  • She has a shining personality and brings rays of sunshine to cloudy days!
  • She’s very knowledgeable and, like me, is a life long learner!
  • She supports without judgement. She believes in you and your path!
  • She truly believes in her duty as a Doula and is committed to serving families in a way that best serves them!

Why does she Doula? What does she Doula?

For the answers to these questions… check out her website and her Facebook page! She is able to physically serve in Thunder Bay and is virtually available anywhere!

Stay tuned for our next installment of Shopping Local Sunday 🙂

MIT: Art Gallery of Algoma

We’ve been exploring different parts of the Soo since E moved there. We’ll continue to highlight these “Moment in Time” (MIT) posts as we continue to blog.

In January, we decided to check out the Art Gallery of Algoma. We were not disappointed!

The feature exhibit was quilting Splendor of Thread and Fabric. A personal goal of L’s is to learn to quilt. Each piece was inspiring and gorgeous!
