Toddler Airplane Bag

We are leaving for Florida in two days and unlike the last time we flew with Little Dude, I have taken the time to prepare his own travel activity bag for him. He is older now (a little over 2) and although he is a good traveller I have no idea what to expect on this multi-hour flight in daylight hours, i.e. there is no hope of him sleeping...

Kitchen Reveal

kitchen reveal
When we bought our new (and our first) home last summer there were two things that we weren't that fussy about. Ok, to be honest there were more than two things, but two things that required talents beyond what my immediate family could easily help with. The two items were kitchen and bathroom - I think those rooms end up on everyone's list, am I right?

Travelling no matter what the season can be challenging, but travelling in the winter is particularly fun. Yes, fun!

With flight delays, snow fall and unpredictable circumstances brings excitement, adventure and fun.

Gaspereau Tidal Bay

gaspereau wine
Name: Gaspereau Tidal Bay
Varietal: Tidal Bay
Country: Canada (Nova Scotia)
Vintage: 2016
Price: $21

Why did I decide to try this wine? During our wine tour weekend back in the fall we visited Gaspereau Vineyard. We didn't try this wine during the tour but purchased a bottle to take home and sample later on.

A post shared by Jenna MacDonald (@jennamac007) on

Would I prefer one glass or indulge in the bottle? Bottle. Without question, its quite delicious and with an alcohol content of 11% a bottle is ok - right?! haha

What shoes would I wear drinking this wine? Classy ankle boots - they match the label on the wine perfectly.

How would I describe the wine? To me this wine is like eating fruit salad...but the good kind that is sweetened with honey and lots of berries and grapes in it rather than means and apples. The smell of this wine reminded me of lemon meringue pie (the kind where the meringue is browned and extra sweet smelling). The Mr. said this wine made him feel like he were walking through the fruit section of Pete's Frutique (a fabulous store that used to exist in our university city of Halifax). If you've been there you will know exactly what he means.
