We went shopping last week to Patagonia, our favorite family and outdoor clothing company. For all the reasons why you can read 4 reasons we shop at Patagonia over at ADVENTUREinPROGRESS. We always go with a list and an envelope of cash. We buy as much as we can from that list with what's in the envelope. Damien's in charge of the family clothing and shoe purchases and I love it. One area of home management I don't have to think about is like a gift.
But Daddy wasn't in charge of this purchase. Celine had her own money to spend and found, although she wasn't really looking, a sweeter-than-sweet knit cap. She tried on a bunch and settled on the blue/grey with brown trim "Nordic Lid". I had a blast taking photos of my little model looking for and trying on hats. Where does this beautiful girl come from?
Our apartment has three bedrooms, one for us, one for Laurent and one for the girls. The bedrooms are a great size, which comes in handy when space is shared, like Laurent's room also being Damien's "office".
My homemaking goal is to create a welcoming home that helps us nurture relationship, within our family and with others, and provides a well-managed and organized space for us to work and learn together.
A Montreal apartment is a good choice for who we are in our early forties, raising three teens, and building a business. It fits our lifestyle and it fits our values. It's not perfect. It's not without challenges, but it works.
