September Music Favourites

September was a b.u.s.y. month and, if I’m being completely honest, I’m glad to be on to October. Without further adieu, here are some of the songs I’m (we’re 🤷🏼‍♀️) really digging this month… 

Family Trips & A Funeral

I personally think there is so much joy to be found in the unplanned moments of life. God is in these unplanned moments and I’m so grateful, albeit a bit tuckered, for these summer experiences!

Favourite Music Finds [May]

Since Shane and I are both consistently searching for new music, I thought it would be fun to share our favourite music finds every month… they aren’t necessarily new music, but new discoveries to us.

Changing Seasons - A Kolkman Family Update

Here in Alberta, we’ve just made it through the coldest February in 40 years and it’s slowly starting to warm up! The sun is shining and we’re starting to hear the drip drip drip of it melting the snow… An encouraging sign of a change in season. As the seasons literally change, our little family is entering a new season too…

The Very Worst Blogger

You see, I truly do love social media, but I’ve felt the pressure of it. The pressure to have the right instagram captions, the right content, but mostly, the pressure to have my blog posts “just so” before hitting publish!

Mama's Hot Chocolate

Since I’ve been making hot chocolate on repeat, I thought I’d refine a recipe that I could share, and pull out of my back pocket for when I inevitably forget myself. This version is inspired by Mexican Hot Chocolate, but doesn’t pack quite as much of a punch. It has a bit of sweetness, but not too much, and it’s even earned me compliments from my not-sweet-tooth hubby.

An Intentional Christmas Season

Coordinated Christmas decor, all bought from a store, placed “just so” around the house. Dozens and dozens of beautiful baked goods stocking my freezer just in case. And don’t even get me started on all the gift wrapping supplies!! And surprise, surprise, I was disappointed every year when I didn’t manage to accomplish all of it!
