4 years ago I was a new mom with a baby in Squamish.  Overwhelmed, sleep deprived, needing an outlet for it all.  So this site was born: my little happy place in one tiny corner of the internet. & it only grew from there.  Squamish had so much to offer young families like mine, & I’ve listed it all here for you to enjoy.  It takes a village, thanks for being a part of mine.


 This amazing, magical book. So many dog-eared pages, post it notes & highlighter marks. Thank you @elizabeth_gilbert_writer for giving us permission to just "go make our own fucking art." . . . #BigMagic #bookstagram #calledtobecreative #motherhoodunplugged #Squamish #seatosky
 I'm currently reading #BigMagic by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer and this quote is such a star. She explains "every single pursuit comes with its own brand of shit sandwich, its own lousy side effects. The question is, what are you passionate enough about that you can endure the most disagreeable aspects of the work?" Working at home with littles around can be trying. Isolating. But the creative aspects of this work and this little online tribe of mine makes my shit sandwich more palatable. Plus, I just wash it all down with coffee ☕
 These two are giving me a run for my money these days. This age combo of 4.5 years + almost-2 years is...LOUD. & MOODY. Mostly an entire day of being emotionally blackmailed. Grateful for my 2 mornings a week where they are both at preschool/daycare and I get my adult brain to work again during daylight hours. . . . #featherlitekids #momboss #parentingtheshitoutoflife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #squamish #beingboss #childhoodunplugged
 Current battle: getting the 4.5 year old to dress herself in the morning. Ends in tears Every. Single. Day. She insists that I help her, while I'm pushing for more independence as we look towards kindy in the fall. Somehow I've become the "do this for me" mom. & I've got to get out of this. No breakfast or cartoons until you are dressed? But that means I have to get dressed too...at 6 am. #notamorningperson . . . #momlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #beingboss #bosslady #nightowl #featherlitekids #featherlitedesigns #squamish
