I’ve been super busy lately with life, so I just thought I’d take a quick break to update ya’ll with what I’ve been up to:
– I’ve baked 2 pies for fun in the past couple weeks. Why? No reason, I just wanted pie! Actually, it was also a slight attempt to master my crust-making skills. The recipe needed a little bit of tweeking, and I think I have it all figured out now.
– Over the Labour Day long weekend it was super hot (for the beginning of September at least), so my mom and I took Isla to the splash park for a little picnic and a play. Isla had SO much fun playing in the water and watching the other kids. I can’t wait until next summer when she’s old enough to run through it on her own without needed to hold our hands.
– I have been working on some freelance writing work like a mad woman lately, and I’m loving it! It’s been a while since I’ve felt the pressure of a deadline, and I miss the stress of it just a tiny little bit! This month I’ve been working on about 10 stories all together. Whew!
– Angela from Craving Cupcakes was recently in BC with her family houseboating, and I (kinda) joking pointed out that Kamloops was only a couple hours away from where they were. Low and behold, she and her (newly wedded) husband were coming into town to take her cousin to the airport, so we made a last-minute coffee date on Saturday! I think I started following Angela’s blog not too long after I started this one up, so it was SO nice to finally meet face-to-face. Hurray for blog-friends becoming IRL friends!
I’m more than certain that I’m leaving stuff out. I promise once I’m done all this freelance business that I’ll get back to blogging more regularly. (Hopefully!)

I always get the urge to bake pies in September – and I don’t even like to eat pie! Well, unless I’m pregnant … Nathan appreciates it, though, since he loves pie :) How do you manage 10 stories in one month with Isla? I’m working on two and I’m stressed about meeting my deadlines!
I cram all my interviews into Isla’s naptime, and right now Kyle has a lot of weekdays off so he’ll play with her while I interview on the phone! Then I type, type, type when she does to bed. It’s exhausting, but worth it :D
It was so great getting to finally meet you! It’s funny how it all worked out.
Hopefully next time, we’ll be meeting in Calgary…perhaps at the zoo!
Awww! What cute photos! xoxo
Mmm send some pies my way please!
What are your pie crust secrets? I should practice the pie making….
