On Saturday, March 18th 2017, Monica and I went snowshoeing Mount Liberty and Mount Flume in New Hampshire. These two mountains were #21 and #22 on our list to complete all 48 mountains over 4000 feet in the White Mountains. You can read about our other mountain hikes here. Last year, we didn’t get the chance to use our snowshoes in the mountains. It was too icy and we only used microspikes. There was a blizzard at the beginning of this week so we were super excited to hit the mountains on the weekend. I picked Monica up a little… » Continue Reading
Books are hugely important to me. I am an avid reader and my dream is for my sons to love books as much as I do. I read to my boys as often as I can. If they ask me to read to them, I stop whatever I am doing to read. No matter what, they know if they want me to read, I will read. My husband and I read to our kids before bed EVERY night. It is such a satisfying routine and I hope it will be a routine that will last a life time. My oldest… » Continue Reading

Last weekend, my husband, a couple of our friends and I went to Montreal to a Bike and Tattoo Show. Kim Coates, the actor who played Tig Trager on the TV series Sons of Anarchy was there doing a meet and greet. We got to get his autograph and have our photo taken with him. It was super cool. Have you ever met a celebrity?
I am an avid reader myself and I also love reading books to my two little boys. They are 3 and 5 years old and we read multiple picture books every day. I have recently started reading chapter books to them. Books are a big part of our bed time routine as well as for quiet cuddling time. I am always on the look out for new and unique books for them. We read many books from our local library but there are some I come across that we just HAVE to own. The very cool LOST MY NAME book… » Continue Reading
