Ava’s Frida Kahlo inspired 1st birthday fiesta!

September 2, 2018
Frida Kahlo birthday party

We knew we wanted to do something special for Ava’s 1st birthday. First birthdays are a BIG deal to us. (See Eliana’s and Lia’s here). The first 12 months of having a baby is stressful, challenging, amazing, sad, wonderful and joyous – All rolled into one. We like taking a moment, not just to honour baby’s 1st year but also to celebrate the “new family” we’ve become. Ava shares a birth date, July 6th, with one of my favourite “sheroes”;…

The Mamma Collaborative: A Women’s day get together

August 9, 2018
Just a Mamma MAMMA COLLABORATIVE

Last year we had the first MAMMA COLLABORATIVE get-together, an AUTUMN TEA TASTING. It was a wonderful morning spent with mamas from different walks of life yet somehow brought together through motherhood (and social media). Many friendships have grown from that morning and I knew it was something I wanted to do again. With Woman’s Day around the corner the 1st day of August was perfect. The setting: Once again our home was the best spot. Stepping into someone’s home is like…

A letter to our daughter on her 1st birthday

Just a Mamma Letter to a one year old

Here we are, one year after the 1st moment I held you, the 1st time I heard your voice and the 1st instance I looked into your big, beautiful eyes. So many things have happened and changed over the past 12 months and although it sounds like a decent amount of time, it actually went by in a flash. Our tiny, fragile baby girl that slept for hours on end has become a bubbly, feisty toddler crawling wherever she likes,…

Just a Mamma Babys 1st birthday

And just like that our baby girl is 1. It’s been a year like no other and I am overwhelmed by the thought of already having spent 365 days with our Ava. It’s strange how, the more kids we have, the more appreciative I become of every second I get to spend with each of them. Of course there’s also just something extra special about a 1st birthday… So, why not celebrate it with a cake smash? Unique in every…

Easter: Why I Believe.

March 31, 2018
JustaMamma Easter Sunday 2018

It’s no secret, we are Christians… A label that carries so much weight and judgement and I completely understand why. With statements like; “Christians are boring. They are “know-it-all’s”, thinking they know best. Christians are hypocrites, believing they are better than others. They always stick their noses in other people’s business. Christians are mean and judgmental. I don’t like Christians…” All of the above is true. There are a lot to be said about Christians because above all Christians are…

Easter. A time to stop, be grateful and thank our Lord for the love He has shown us. That’s what Easter means to us. It’s also a time to spend with family. Since I can remember we’ve always celebrated with a special Easter breakfast or brunch. It’s one of my fondest childhood memories and a tradition we have continued with the girls. This year we surprised them all a little earlier than usual with a break of dawn backyard breakfast…
