My name is Erika and I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, co-worker and probably a host of other titles on any given day. I live in Winnipeg, Canada with my wonderful husband, baby son, and two energetic terriers.
My role of mother is relatively new, as I gave birth to my first child on June 12, 2011. So far the experience has been amazing, to say the least. Here in Canada we are blessed with a year-long maternity leave, which seemed like an eternity to me when I stopped working about 7 months ago. However, I can hardly believe that my maternity leave is already half over and in a few short months I will be returning to the office, where I work in Marketing. To help me keep track of where all these wonderful days have gone, I am creating this blog as a keepsake for myself and my family. I will post daily events, recipes, baby pics, shopping wish-lists, and anything else that strikes me as interesting.
A word of warning - I have been told that I tend to be a bit 'all over the map' when it comes to writing. My thoughts jump around quickly and I usually blurt things out without thinking. Sometimes I get sidetracked. Or, really, really excited about something only to lose interest a few days later. So this blog may change. A lot. And you may find me talking about one thing, only to start rambling on about a totally different (but no less interesting) topic. Take it as you will, and I hope you enjoy reading about our lives!
