where we’ve been and what we’ve been doing

I know I’ve been MIA quite a bit lately. I got really sick in April and it took me weeks to recover, and then my computer crashed (thank-you Windows 8!) and I hadn’t done an update in a couple months and lost a bit of stuff. That bummed me out, my energy was low from being sick, and I really haven’t found my mojo again. What I have been doing though, is enjoying every single second of life. We’re exploring the world around us and taking in all the beauty in the world. We’re doing new things, visiting old-time favourites and living life to the fullest. I need this. The kids need this. And it feels good. I’ll still be on here posting a couple times a week this Summer, but I’ll also be taking the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy life – something I don’t often get to do in my crazy hectic life.

If you want to keep up with me on a daily basis and see all the shenanigans we are getting into, you can find me on instagram HERE. It’s my favourite place to be and a great way to document the memories we are making. Here are some of the memories we’ve made in the last couple weeks…..


We’re raising monarch butterflies from eggs, collecting garden snails, building castles at the beach, running through sprinklers and enjoying every second of life!

Come Find Me On Instagram

I know I haven’t been posting lots lately – but I have good reasons! Life. Life is busy. The older the kids are getting, the busier their lives are becoming. I find myself running around back and forth driving the kids here and there during most of my free time. I still am able to sneak in some posts here and there, but my free time has definitely taken a nosedive. If you’re wanting to keep up with what we’re doing in our daily lives – come find me on instagram. Instagram seems to be the social media outlet that I am best at keeping up with (I’m pretty terrible at most of the others, lol), and I just love photography so taking pictures of our everyday life is a no-brainer. Here are some of the things that we’ve been up to in the last couple weeks:


My instagram username is Kirstenreese and you can find me HERE. I’d love for you to join us and I’d love to join you as well. There’s something about instagram that is just so fun and I love seeing what others are up to in their day-to-day life too!

Watermelon Pizza


I’m always looking for fun and easy snacks for my kids during the long, hot summer. This watermelon fruit pizza is a perfect, cool and refreshing summer treat that is also healthy too! Get all the details on how I made it over at CBC Parents. It couldn’t be cuter or easier!
