Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no). But for me, as an adult, I understand why I can't party it up with like 50 of my closest friends and family members. I understand that a Vegas trip is out of the questi

Camping Bucket List 2020


If someone would have told me 20 years ago, that I would end up being a camper, I wouldn't have believed it. My family (mom and dad) are not really outdoorsy people, we didn't go on family hikes or ski trips, or day trips to the lake. And I never wore running shoes as part of an outfit until I was living away at college and let's face it, was just too lazy to wear my platform Mary-Janes to class (yes I know, I'm totally dating myself here).

But now, fast-forward to being an adult (gasp!) and having a family of my own, I've learned to embrace the outdoors. My kids are BUSY, and that meant when they were really young, spending time outside rain or shine. And as they've gotten older, and they're easier to travel with, we have plunged ourselves knee-deep into camping.

We tried tent camping once - epic fail. And it took several years later to finally try again, although this time, we splurged for a trailer. First, a pop-up tent trailer, which we loved but quickly realized we needed something bigger. Now we have a hybrid trailer which is the best of both worlds. Sleeping in tent end beds, but we have a kitchen and bathroom too which is so helpful.

We've visited quite a few private and provincial campgrounds in Ontario the past few summers and we're gearing up to take the trailer out again this year - if this pandemic ever ends!

This summer, if we can break out of this quarantine/self-isolation era we currently live in, I'd like to visit the following places:


We camped here a few years ago, and have always wanted to go back. This year we have tentative plans to visit the park again in August with a few other families. Cross your fingers for us!


Other places I want to visit (will be our first time):


What are you travel or camping plans this summer?
