  1. I love your 11 facts about you. I wish there was a way to unpinch my cheeks to make them look less red, BTW 🙂 I am also really grateful for the nomination, since not only do I have a Liebster award now, but thanks to you, I’ve also learned about your blog, which is beautiful and sweet and I’m looking forward to getting to know a fellow Canadian blogger mommy better 🙂

    • Yay!!!! Yeah un pinching would be helpful. Seems to easy the other way around. Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy my blog and were able to find out about it. I will say though, I live in Columbus Ohio- But I secretively wish I was Canadian. Although, I’ve had some say I’m an honorary just for my die-hard Love. I mean.. I’ve celebrated Canada Day. Where abouts in Canada are you?!?
