Two Years Later

What has happened over the past two years, you ask? Wow. What a good question. Let me think. I’ll cover a few of the big ones.

1. We had a boy, who is now 1 and a half years old. His name is Roman. He has been the most charming little boy I’ve ever met. I know, I’m his mom, I must say this, but I’m being very serious when I say Roman will be a funny guy. He is already making us laugh and he’s not even talking yet.

Phoenix is now three and a quarter. She’s attending preschool, she loves drawing happy faces, puzzling, singing (but not at preschool), spelling her name and she’s a beautiful person. I’m so happy to have her in my life.

While I’m talking about my children, I should mention my appreciation for local kid’s programs. It took me a while to warm up to the idea of going to these “mommy groups” but then I realized how awesome they are! And they’re not mommy groups at all, or not how I pictured them in my head. The programs provide fun environments for children and their parents, or whoever is caring for them, to play. They play with new toys, new kids (although, a lot of the same people attend the programs, which is great too), plus, they get snacks! It’s fantastic!

I strongly recommend:
Strong Start at Isabella Dicken Elementary School. Monday-Friday 9-12pm but you can come and go at any time.
Parent Tot Fun Times at Knox United Church – 201 2nd Ave. Mondays 9:30-12pm but you can come and go at any time.
Little Sprouts at Fernie’s Community Garden – in the summer. One of my favorite summer programs.

2. I’m creative again. After I got pregnant with Phoenix I lost a lot of my passion for painting and all things creative (a big reason as to why I took an STS break) and I put it to the side for a while. I was just about to get back into making things when I got pregnant with Roman but this time I didn’t completely lose my creative drive. Now, with Roman and Phoenix a bit older, I’m really enjoying it once again. Rod is a star and made me a large canvas to paint on, the biggest one I’ve ever worked on, and I’ve been taking my time with it. New drawing pens were bought, new hobbies taken up and new plans in the works. It’s all a little too exciting for me.

3. I miss blogging. This, in fact, isn’t 100% true. I miss blogging about Fernie. That’s true. I did start another secret blog after I ended STS…but that’s another story.

4. Also, I’ve gained a bit of weight, enjoyed some really good books, participated in the dumpster painting project, helped plan the lantern festival, carved a few awesome stamps, learned to sew (am still learning to sew), attended a few great author readings put on by the people of Booked! Fernie Writers’ Series and I’m trying to get into winter. I’m happy!

Sparwood BC Gets Rebranded

Sparwood BC - Rebranding - new logo, website etc
Wow! That’s a huge change for Sparwood BC from the previous website and branding. They’ve gotten so tough and dark. While clicking through Sparwood’s new website you might feel a quick sock to the jaw because Sparwood just punched you for asking questions about their big truck. I like it though. I’m excited to see how this effects the little community.

Fernie Brewing Company - New Website
Fernie Brewing Company
has just launched their new website, just after their latest festive flavour Sap Sucker hit the shelves. They also have a blog, which I’ve added to the growing list of Fellow Blogs on Small Town Social. It’s good to see so many new Fernie blogs start up. Hint: The key to a successful blog is to keep writing on them.
