It’s cold and there’s snow on the ground. Of course it’s January, so that’s to be expected.

The programs range from active playtime in the gym, story-time at the library and various other structured and non-structured activities. Being a first time stay-at-home mom, I am constantly amazed by all the events that Durham Region offers […]

Hi Everyone! As I write this post, the sun is shining bright and beautiful through my kitchen window and I can’t help but feel that spring (or summer, if I really want to get ahead of myself) is here!

It’s been a long time since I picked up my saxophone and played it. This is in stark contrast to my high school days when I practiced my saxophone every single day. Yes, you heard right, every single day! I went to an arts high school (think of the movie Fame) and was in the instrumental […]

I find that after summer, there’s “back to school” season, then comes Thanksgiving, then Halloween and before you know it, we’re in November.
