Mango Salsa Tacos {With Lime Cordial Chicken}

Homemade Strawberry Jam

Last summer I attempted to make my own strawberry jam with my mother in law at the cottage.

Even after adding more Certo, nothing we did changed the consistency. So instead of…

Invitations for a ‘High Tea’ Bridal Shower

Guns n’ Florals

Unfortunately for me one of my best friends lives half way across Canada, but we hardly let that stop us from keeping an extremely close relationship. Not only do we talk on the phone every single day, we send each other 'care packages' every now and then filled with little gifts. Trinkets, magnets, mugs, food,…
