Signature Mobile Spa

Why go to the spa when the spa can come to you? When I think of our lives now, there are a lot of adjectives that immediately spring to mind: busy, noisy, rushed, chaotic, fast-paced, etc. Since we have 2 young children (Rianne is 2.5 years old and Ryan is 1 year old), the words "calm", "relaxed", "peaceful", "serene", or "blissful" don't immediately come to mind. However, as parents, those are … [Read more...]

Tropicana Farmstand

Growing up, I was not a huge fan of fruits & veggies. I would definitely consider myself a "Picky Eater." As a kid, I would love eating junk food (like chips, candy, and chocolate) and meat (chicken, beef, pork, lamb, duck, etc) yet when my mom put veggies on the dinner plate, I would eat everything except the green stuff. In fact, I would even pick out the onion slivers when I saw or tasted … [Read more...]

The potatoes are grown between Delta and Chilliwack while the factory is Maple Ridge (so they only cook the potatoes they grow … [Read more...]

Tuskast Icelandic Horse Farm

When writing my book "Wisdom from Daddies", I had the opportunity to interview Christopher Jones about raising his family on a farm. Christopher and his wife Nathaly own Tuskast Icelandic Horse Farm in Abbotsford. I organized a group of five lucky bloggers to do a Ride & Wine (one hour of horse-riding and one hour of wine tasting). The horse riding was super fun - a little scary at first but tons … [Read more...]
