Welcome to Glimpse...the Canadian Review Blog!! :) If you haven't already figured it out, we love all things Canadian and are all about featuring Canadian companies, attractions, events, products, etc. Glimpse is run by two Canadian Moms who both live on the Canadian prairies. Here's a quick little "taste" of what our lives are like:
Julie is a mom of three little ones and she enjoys cooking and baking (but not washing up :)), playing with the kids, reading (not too much time for that lately!), sewing (less time for that, but she's hoping to get back into it!), taking pictures of the kids, updating the blog for their Dutch family, music (listening and playing the piano and singing) and sitting on the couch drinking honeybush or rooibos tea with her husband after the kids have gone to bed.
Andrea has four little ones and is a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom! our children as well. She's a little bit of a "nerd" when it comes to natural stuff, healthy living etc...she loves trying new homemade remedies, healthy, unconventional recipes, etc. This week she made her first batch of homemade toothpaste and a batch of homemade gummy candies for the kiddos. ;) A few other favorites include: babywearing, hiking (even though we live in the prairies, I must admit...I LOVE to hike in the mountains!), reading, music, camping (it's definitely interesting with 6 of us in a 6 sleeper tent trailer, but it works!! :) ) and just being a Mom!
