Be A Royal Trendsetter

My dad is a royal trendsetter.

Prince George

We were very surprised to see baby Prince George wearing our absolute favourite blanket as he was put into his car seat after leaving the hospital.

My dad has bought each of our three boys these incredible blankets from aden + anais.

We love them because they are lightweight, good for swaddling, wiping up spit-up, using as an actual blanket and a simple cover up for breast feeding. They are the most versatile blanket for all four of the seasons that we experience here.

Our Youngest Little Prince, OC

I feel a strong connection to this wee Prince not only because of the blanket, but because I was born and raised in Prince George.

Welcome to the world Prince George. May The Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you. May your parents enjoy every moment getting to know you with freedom and grace to be themselves.

Be Making Granola

This is our current go-to recipe for bedtime snack. Thanks Diana for posting it on your blog. Here is the original post. She calls it Gnome Granola.


I rewrote the recipe below.

Diana’s Granola

4 cups oats
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup coconut
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup walnuts

Put all the dry ingredients in a big bowl.

1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
And when warm add
1/2 tsp vanilla
Then immediately stir into the dry ingredients. Put on a tray. Bake at 350 for 20 mins. Stir halfway.

I put the dry ingredients in the bowl the night before. I also didn’t put in the coconut this time. Also I prefer pecans and will sometimes substitute them for the walnuts. I also add chia seeds or wheat germ sometime instead of the sesame seeds.


My foodie friend Diana has helped me become freer in changing the recipes.

This is definitely a recipe to play with and make it your own.

Have fun!
