Happy 40th Babe

Wow! Where has the time gone? Today was a lower key day. When he went out for some errands the kiddos and I ran out and decorated the yard.

Why you ask??

Because I can!! And it is a tradition on my side of the family.

I know for some they hate their birthdays and would rather keep it quiet.

For the most part I do listen to his request; but I couldn’t let a milestone birthday pass us by.

Plus the kids just love all the hubbub and fuss.

He was showered with hugs, kisses and gifts.

I hope he enjoyed his day.๐Ÿ˜˜.

You only turn 40 once๐ŸŽ‚

Love working when and where I want

Today’s workspace view

Only I wear ear defenders when on our boat! Lord it is loud! Lol

Such a beautiful day! So I will only take a few minutes away from my family to do a little work!

Love that I can do it from anywhere I want and I make my own time lines!

Enjoy the little moments people!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿผ

Mr Sun Sun Mr Golden Sunโ˜€๏ธ

Thankfully Mother Nature gave us a reprieve of the +45 degree Celsius heat wave.

Don’t get me wrong the sun is still shinning and we really shouldn’t complain since it was a long winter.

It’s just hard to plan anything outside without either sitting in water or getting dehydrated.

As a fair skinned red head that has had heat stroke I struggle to enjoy the outside and not damage my skin.

I really should buy stocks in the sunscreen racket! ๐Ÿคฃ

But unfortunately this weekend while watching my kiddos swim in their grandparents pool and enjoying being outside without melting I forgot one area.

Worst part was that I was hiding in the shade and making sure the kids had sunscreen on that I forgot about myself.

Now over my short 30+ years I have tired many, many, many remedies to help take the heat/ pain out of the sun burns.

Last year I found a remedy and I am never turning back.

๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ‘™

Will I stop using sunscreen?! Heck NO!

Will I continue to tell anyone that will listen about my remedy?! Heck YES!

Happy Anniversary

๐ŸŽ‚Happy Anniversary to myself!!

One year ago I decided to take some action. One year ago I was tired of people asking me if I was sick or getting enough sleep. ๐Ÿ˜”

Sure I am a mom to three beautiful children that keep me busy, but I needed to remind myself I was more that โ€œjust a mom!โ€

So after doing ALOT of research I jumped! ๐Ÿ‡

And Boy am I glad I did. ๐Ÿ™€

Waking up every morning to see changes, getting self confidence back, feeling like a complete person again. โ˜บ๏ธ

Taking a chance on me and believing in myself๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Being able to see a better future for not only myself but my family as well! ๐Ÿ’‹

Now I have no idea if new adventures, self confidence or feeling better is something that excites you as much as it does me, but if it does leave me a ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป or PM me!

I would love to hear from you, Whatโ€™s your dream??? ๐ŸŽถ

My favourite space!

Growing up watching my mom in her garden I always thought that is a hell of a lot of work!

But because of this she taught me that hard work pays off.

Spring is always so exciting to see what has survived our long winters. What new plant I will try that summer to see if I have the “green” thumb my mother and grandmother have/had.

So everyday I take a few minutes to wander around my gardens, pull weeds and just plain enjoy this space I have created for my family and I.

I am also so lucky that I have the time during my day to enjoy the space. I don’t have to run off every morning to a job till 5 pm.

Perks of a home business! ๐Ÿ˜

The biggest enjoyment is that my three children watch me working away and all help me plant the garden and get very excited when a flower is about to “pop” open as they say!

Enjoy the sunshine, do what makes you happy, take time for you! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Life is a โ€œJourneyโ€!

So a few weeks ago a few girlfriends and I headed to the BIG city to enjoy a concert.

We had tonnes of fun and it was a great way to relax before I finished another big project.

The thing that amazed me was that I could actual afford to go! With a young family of 5 on a single income, there are not many opportunities for me to do something for myself.

Along with that, we moms tend to never put ourselves first. But after my husband lovingly convinced me that I needed some time away to recharge I took a look at our books to see if I could.

Shocked to see that since I decided to start investing in my families future a few months ago by starting up a small business I was actual financially able to do so!!

For the first time in a long time I didn’t overanalyze spending money on myself! It was a wonderful feeling.

It was also surprising that I was able to see that my hard work paid off rather quickly!

I wonder what my next adventure will be?!

PM me if your interested in hearing how I did it!
