Summer Cottages are the best vacations EVER! Join @LinkedMoms and @ParkbridgeLife for a Twitter Party–Wed. April 13

Summer Cottage @ParkbridgeLife Lake Gallagher, BC

Gallagher Lake, South Okanagan, British Columbia

I’ve been dreaming of summer cottages these last few years.  I remember a while ago when my siblings toyed over the idea of getting a family cottage where all the kids could go and play during the summer.  Nothing big or fancy. Somewhere close and full of activities that would keep them occupied and us happy.  All you want in a summer property is to have maintenance free living with amenities that are easily accessible in popular areas.  Who wouldn’t want to have a place at Wasaga Beach, the Kawartha Lakes or even Muskoka.  In Ontario we are so familiar with these resort areas that we take it for granted that we can find a cottage rental fairly easily.  A couple of summers ago,  I was able to visit a Parkbridge Lifestyle Community at Lakes of Wasaga.

We had a great time with the kids and we never had to worry about a thing.  That is the best part! It was very safe and secure with gated access to the community, on-site management and maintenance.  We stayed at one of over 21 resorts in Ontario in the Parkbridges family of RV resorts and lifestyle communities throughout Canada.

You can find a summer cottage or community in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. Check out the resorts  on their website and browse the map, or search resorts by name. Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities Inc. (“Parkbridge”) is Canada’s leading owner, operator and developer of residential land lease communities, recreational resorts and marinas.  Established in 1998, Parkbridge’s portfolio has grown significantly from two original properties with 650 sites. In early 2013, the company surpassed the milestone of 100 properties with over 27,500 operational and potential expansion sites.  With that kind of experience and depth of properties, you will have many to choose from.  You can select from adult-only retirement communities, marina locations situated on some of Canada’s most popular lakes, RV and mobile home or family lifestyle communities.  How can so many people own properties in Parkbridge community?  It becomes very affordable by having a land lease.

“ When you buy a home in one of our Family or Retirement Lifestyle residential communities, or in one of our Cottage & RV Resorts, you don’t have to buy the lot it’s on, so it becomes a lot less expensive to own.” ~ Parkbridge

Not having to buy the lot means that you get can own a property without having a large mortgage.  You can see in the picture below that these are not necessarily small properties or RV parks but year-round family communities.  They are developed to create a relaxing experience with pool facilities, lake access, community centers, parks and trails.

When we were in Lakes of Wasaga we stayed in a two bedroom bungalow with all the amenities: a full kitchen, bathroom, living room and spacious bedrooms.  We had a beautiful porch at the front and a screened in deck in the back with plenty of room for a patio table and chairs to enjoy the summer evening.  Our view was of a beautifully pond and gardens.  We enjoyed many of the activities that they had on-site.  There was a corn roast that I still think about because it was the best corn I’ve ever tasted in my life!

I’m hoping to return to a Parkbrige community this summer in British Columbia and introduce my in-laws more cottage life!

A Letter to the Young Women in my Life commemorating International Women’s Day #IWD2015

International Women's Day #IWD20105 @DownshiftingPRO My Letter to the Young Women in My Life

Dear young women in my life:

I am mainly writing to the young women in my life that bring me joy everyday of their lives.  I am writing to my two daughters that are beginning their journey into womanhood.  For my eldest daughter that is 18 years old and in her first year of university and her sweet, sweet friends that are either in university or completing a ‘victory’ lap to build a bigger portfolio for the arts programs of their dreams.

This is also for my teenage daughter that is in the thick of it, in Grade 10 of high school trying hard to manoeuvre all that is boys, sports and school.   It is also for my older nieces that have finished university or are just about to finish university. It is for my niece that has started to find the path that she so desperately sought which would encompass her love of animals and their overall well being.   Some of these life lessons are still images in the distance for my youngest niece that has just begun high school. They are lessons that she too will learn, all in due course.  All of these teens and young women are certainly more confident in finding their way in the world than I or their mother’s were many  moons ago but they still all have a few wrinkles to iron out.

To you young ladies I  bow before you in awe of your beauty, your talents, your brawn and your brains.  You are all, oh, so very different, yet all are determined to make your unique mark on life. You all have goals and ambitions that will not be quelled or ignored.  You are all so very close in age yet, unquestioningly, at different stages of your development and maturity.  You are all both fearless and fearful at once.

To all of you, I wish nothing but grace and love.  Grace is not something that you find in a book, on an podcast or on YouTube.  Grace is the ability to find goodness, peace and comfort in everything that you do and with everyone that you meet.  You may not be there yet, because now, yes, right now, you are still finding the roads to health, happiness and fortune.  You may not have found a need to seek that elusive path to Grace but you will.  You certainly will because one day you will seek it out and you’ll be happy to see it and recognize the beauty that is Grace.

You are in a point in time when the world is not a complete mystery to you but there are so very many things that you have yet to do.  There are places that you have not travelled to. Girlfriends you have not bonded with. Boyfriends and lovers you have not met… yet.

There are challenges you have yet to conquer that will make you stronger more confident women.  Please know that strength may come at a price.  A toll you have to pay.  A road you have to travel.  It is these challenges that will break your heart.  It will make you wish you have never lived.  Don’t be surprised one day, one hard fought day, in which you find yourself contemplating the value of your worth.  It will come, we have all had that moment when we’ve wonder:  “What’s the point?  What am I doing with my life?”

I think to myself that there is still so much that you need to learn about life, relationships and being the women you were meant to be.  I want(ed) to teach you as much as I can (could) but I know, I am constantly reminded, that these are your lessons to learn. Your path to blaze. Your mistakes to make.  I have known since the day you were born, my sweet daughters, that I would have to let go of you one day.

As a mother and an aunt, it is never easy to just sit back and watch as your lives unfurl before my eyes.  Thankfully, there have been no ‘train wrecks’ to bounce back from.  You have all managed to stay out of trouble and more importantly, out of harm’s way.  I am thankful, we are thankful everyday.  But we wonder.  We often wonder what will be around the corner, what lurks in the shadows.  “Nothing” I tell myself, to calm the voice of worry in my head.  “We’ve taught them well” and “They’ll make the right choices” we assert to each other as we speak about each and everyone of you when we touch base.

As a mother, I want to help guide the way so that you don’t have to feel the hurt or the pain of living in today’s complicated world.  It is not easy to manoeuvre the age of selfies, sexting, revenge-porn and shaming.  It is the reality of owning your sexuality in 2015.  They are words and actions that you think I did not go through because there was a limited amount of internet threats to navigate.  But we had our own burdens to bare just with differing degrees of complexity and definition.

You think your grandmothers did not go through these  issues of defining the meaning of being a woman but for them, there were different issues that defined their version of ‘living in these modern times.’  They grew up post-WWI in the giddy days of 1950’s Leave it to Beaver and Mad Men-esque expectations.  Their issues of re-defining the role of women in the home and at work are still struggles that we face on a daily basis.  As we women work our way through life, we have all found it a struggle to find our feminine voice (and by feminine, I don’t mean a girly or seductive voice) I mean the voice that is universal to all women.  The voice that defines who we are.  What is fundamentally in our DNA.  What defines our sex.

We will always be in the role of daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt and family matriarch.  Some cannot or opt to not have children but as child bearers, we hold the key to life within us because we are the only ones of our race that can gestate and give life.  Yes, we are in need of that male element to procreate but it is up to us to bring those children into this world. The miracle of life is, I hope, still a ways away for all of you.  That conversation is for different letter at later time.

Right now you are all about what defines you personally as a woman.

What defines you are not words such as beautiful, fragile, bitchy or fierce.  Words that are offensive also do not define who you are as a woman.  As you begin to explore your sexual being, remember you are not bitches or a biotch, a ho or a whore, a slut, a butch or a dyke or a …. word I will never use or print or write or say.  Words that society throws around carelessly without merit or justification. You are none of those words and to be clear, those words will not define you.  They may be words that you will hear: out loud or in a whispered conversation. They may be said by the one that you love in anger or rage.  They may be said with jealousy or in envy.  They may also be said in jest and in play (though that is a form of humour I have yet to understand).

2014-12-20 20.03.52

Let me be very clear: You are the captains of your destiny. The women of tomorrow and our collective future.  Go boldly, bravely with some trepidation but with the knowledge that all the women before you applaud your every effort.  Support your fledgling attempts to build the life that is waiting for you.

You are LOVED. A.LOT.

We, your mothers and grandmothers, are here to assist (guide, mentor, cajole) you in finding your feminine way through life in 2015.

You own your body.

You define yourself.

You steer your destiny.

You are the reason we continue to celebrate International Women’s Day.

I salute you.

I applaud you.

I support you.

I adore you.

I love you.

Today.

Tomorrow.

For as long as I shall live.

Hugs and Kisses

Your Mother, Your Aunt, Your Friend.

The Joy of Children–Nearly a Reality with #OHIP4IVF– Special #LinkedMoms Twitter Party Tuesday, May 6 at 8pm ET

 

I strongly support OHIP funding for IVF.

I have been waiting so long to write this post.  It has been percolating for months.  I have thought it through eight ways to Sunday and I have wanted to share with my readers how strongly I feel about this particular issue.  But first I will explain.

It is a milestone year this year.

My eldest is graduating from high school.

In 1996 this beautiful little baby came into our lives.  She is a joy we awaited for after a devastating miscarriage. She took her own sweet time when it was time to enter this big beautiful world.  Cautious, reflective and a little bit shy.  She remains the same to this very day.IMG_0015

We saw her through 11 years of Irish Dance and four years of social justice, swim team, best buddies, cabaret and animee club.  She was involved in her school (just as both her parents were in our high school years).  We couldn’t be prouder.

IMG_0297To date she has been accepted into 3 of 5 universities that she has applied for.  We are anxiously awaiting the last two. Yesterday night she heard from her dream program: Baccalaureate in Social Sciences, Honours International Development and Globalization / Co-operative Education (French immersion). She texted me as soon as she got the email: “I GOT IN TO OTTAWA!!”

It is the year that I must let go.  I am crying already.

This is my life with my eldest child.  The child we so wanted, awaited and celebrate everyday.  She was the beginning of our family (but not the end).  She is the next generation. 

Why is this so important at this point in time? 

Because a few weeks ago, the Government of Ontario announced that will change the lives of thousands of couples and childless adults by giving them the opportunity to share the joys that I have experienced in the last 17 years – being a parent.

I’m talking about the announcement by the Honourable Deb Matthews, Health Minister, that the Government of Ontario plan to help would-be parents pay for one cycle of in vitro fertilization for all forms of infertility starting early next year. This is a huge victory for all those that have had to deal with infertility in one form or another.

Why is it so important to me?  I did not have problems getting pregnant.  Why do advocate for OHIP4IVF?

Because I think EVERYONE should have the life experiences that I have had with my daughter.  I believe that you should have the love of a child. I believe it will make us a stronger family-centered province.

What I do and don’t believe? 

I don’t believe that infertility is a lifestyle choice.  I don’t think that just because you suffered from cancer and became infertile it is a ‘lifestyle choice’.  There are people that suffer from all sorts of ailments that would prohibit them from becoming pregnant (male or female).  Infertility does not discriminate: it doesn’t decided on social class, ethnicity or gender. 

I have heard the argument that you are born with the body God gave you and you have to just have to accept it. 

I don’t  believe that God has just dealt you those cards and the decision to be a parent has been pre-ordained.  If that were true, why would he give a doctor and scientist the advance knowledge and scientific research in infertility treatments or to specialize in IVF?  If the medical knowledge is there, we should use it.  That is my belief.

I think that it strengthens our community to have strong families and building some of them through IVF makes us a better nation.  I really do believe this. You don’t have to be directly affected by infertility to know that this proposed funding by OHIP is a for IVF.

We will be discussing this topic on LinkedMoms on a special night: Tuesday, May 6th at 8 pm. Please join us to show your support of why this makes sense for families in Ontario.

#Linkedmoms discuss Getting Ready for Winter–What do you do to get ready?

LinkedMoms chat will be discussing how to get ready for winter.  What do you do? Put away the patio furniture? Store the window screens? Put up the Christmas lights before it snows?

girl gesturing with christmas lights and decorations

Around here I flip the bed mattresses when the clocks change to Standard time in the fall and daylight saving time in the spring.  I also stock up on canned goods that I use for stews and soups.  Going out to pick up a can of tomatoes or tomato paste when its cold and drizzling outside is NOT appealing. Having canned good help me make yummy things a crock pot. Getting ready for winter, I also review what is in my freezer and try to use up any meat, chicken or frozen food that has been in there for a while.  Time to turn things over.

Kozzi-Path-in-the-Forest_Woods-294 X 441Outside you need to rake the leaves and dig up annuals.  Then turn off the outdoor taps, check the calking around the windows & doors.  As far as inside the house is concerned, I will make sure that all the screen for the windows are cleaned. I cleaned the windows a few weeks back.  Its no fun looking out the window if it is covered in dust.  I also clean all the baseboards – another tedious task that doesn’t need to be done more then every three months (or so I think).

What about car maintenance, do you schedule a tune up?  My husband took his car in yesterday to get the winter tires put on.  Do you schedule a however-many-point-check-up? Oil, windshield washer fluid or air in your tires?

We are discussing what you need to do to get ready for winter.  We will have prizes that include books, a gift bag from Philosophy skin products, some fun toys and maybe a gift card or two… Make sure to come by and find out what surprises we have for our #LinkedMoms community.

Trick or Treat #Halloween #LinkedMoms chat

Halloween_hair
Halloween is right around the corner! So what better topic for this evening’s Linked Mom’s chat. Will you be dressing up? Are your kids the right age to trick or treat still? Are yours, like mine, tweens who keep suggesting they will take pillowcases out to collect goodies this year? That, by the way, is a personal Halloween etiquette faux pas for me. It makes me want to hold back on dishing out the big candy bars and Kindereggs when I see older children carrying pillow cases. Something about that never makes me feel good. Anyways, there is so much to talk about on Halloween. Do you give out candy? Do you donate money to UNICEF? Do you keep the candy? Do you ration it? Do you give out toothbrushes? Home-made treats? Do you stay home and hand out the goodies? How do you juggle the funniest night of the year? Do you get right into it like my one neighbour does? I have one neighbour who sits on the patio in full costume and is very still like a statue until my daughter knocks on the door and then he moves and scares her into a near cardiac event. That never gets old.
This week join the #linkedmoms chat on Wednesday as we tackled the frightful topic of Halloween. This is my daughter, Payton, clowning at Target. By the way, they have some of the absolute most adorable fun foam wigs you’ve ever seen. The Linked Moms chats occur almost every Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST. Sometimes we have a sponsor and sometimes we don’t. Every so often we have a flurry of prizes to share with you also. Join us this week and let’s talk about our little boys and ghouls. Cue the creepy music!

Talking Turkey…Thanksgiving #LinkedMoms Chat

LinkedMoms_Thanksgiving

It is my favourite holiday.  Thanks giving has always been very special in my family.  It was the weekend that family members announced that they were getting married, that they were having a baby, that they were moving back to London.   It is the weekend that I married my husband 20 years ago. It is a time to reflect and say THANKS.  It is a time when we get together with family and friends and celebrate the fall.

Its Canadian Thanksgiving and we are talking Turkey on #LinkedMoms chat. We want to hear all about are Thanksgiving traditions for you.  Do you have Turkey and Ham? Do you invite all the family over or keep it simple? Do you make pecan pie or pumpkin pie?  What do you do???
