Our Small Garden Transformation Part I + Budget Tips

February 21, 2020

Over the last few weeks we’ve been working on our garden space. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you might know that we bought a house last summer and have been busy renovating it to turn it into our family home. I’m so thankful we got to start on our garden already, as I would love to make the most of the coming spring season. It’s been my dream to have our own garden for a long time – I’ve always just had a balcony (which has also been amazing for growing some herbs and veg) until we moved into this home. I’d love to take you along on this journey with us – we are first time gardeners and will do most of this on a DIY & low budget basis. Let’s get on our small garden transformation!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls (Vegan & Lower Sugar)

February 14, 2020

Saturday morning. Waking up isn’t my favourite part of the day (thank you dark winter days), but this morning I’m nearly leaping out of bed and making my way downstairs. I’m pretty excited about the cinnamon rolls in the fridge that I prepped the previous night! My oven gets to do all the work while I take my time to wake up. The smell of cinnamon starts filling our home. I’m brewing some delicious coffee while the rest of the house wakes up. Breakfast is served! This is what Saturday morning dreams are made of.

Okay, truth be told: it’s not this perfect in real life. But it’s pretty close to it! And that’s mostly got to do with the fact that my 1,5 year old won’t sleep in that long anymore. The rest is pretty much accurate.

Five Dishwashing Swaps to Reduce Waste

January 31, 2020

We have a pretty good deal in our house. I love cooking, and I take care of our meals pretty much every day. My husband loves being left in the kitchen afterwards – doing the dishes, putting things away and leaving the kitchen ready for a new day. I would say I’ve got the better end of this deal, yet my husband would claim the same. That’s what I call a win-win!

Why We Don’t Own A TV + Our Alternative

January 24, 2020

Our living room consists of a pretty basic set up of a comfy couch, a space for toys & books and a lovely rug. There’s no TV. It’s not hiding inside a cabinet or behind a curtain, we just don’t own one. This topic regularly comes up whenever we have guests around, and I thought it could be helpful to share about some reasons why we don’t own a TV + an alternative that works great for us!
