Something I’ve talked a lot about a LOT on social media (holla if you watch my Instagram stories) is fertility. I started sharing because it was such a huge part of my life. Like with a lot of important pieces of my life, work, marriage, home life, I share it without it being purposeful, but […]

I remember growing up in Alberta (holla Edmonton!) with my family, and owning a home was just a given. It’s all relative, but prices were such that owning wasn’t even a question.
