The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

It's apple season!

To celebrate the start of Fall we met up with Dennis and Jessa at Stribling Orchard in Markham for lunch and apple picking.




It was our first family adventure, and Roscoe seemed to enjoy looking at all the apples. Dennis and Jessa ordered boxed lunches from their favorite neighborhood shop, and afterward we enjoyed warm apple danishes and apple sticks.

The guys used their borrowed picking poles to snag all the good fruit from way up high, and we left with a half bushel of Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, and McIntosh apples--soon to be turned into apple pie, applesauce, and caramel apples--as well as jars of apple pecan butter, blackberry and strawberry jams, and peach/mango salsa. Yum!

The weather was cool with a nice breeze; we expected it to be cooler so we bundled Roscoe in an undershirt, babylegs, pants, long sleeve shirt, socks and hoodie, most of which were stripped off by the end of the day. Somehow he and Andy managed to get a little sunburn too. :(

We were lucky to have a very talented photographer among us--with the exception of a few non-artistic shots below, Jessa took all the photos posted here. More pictures can be viewed on her facebook.





Roscoe's many faces ...








Later, a good game of Patty-Cake brought on the smiles!
