I am really excited to introduce another new series to the blog today â Bedtime Stories. If youâre a longtime reader you already know that weâre a family of book worms (just take a peek at our library wall!) and that reading is part of our everyday. Knowing that we have time designated in the evening each night to curl up together while reading, discussing, and imagining over stories is something weâve all grown to count on.
I hope youâll look forward to our monthly Bedtime Stories series â I know Iâm already looking forward to hearing about your favourites and recommendations. Hopefully we can all discover new stories and characters to love and invite into our homes, night after night.

Atlas of Adventures written by Rachel Williams, with illustrations by Lucy Letherland
A beautiful book with an incredible attention to detail, specifically in its illustrations. I swear each time we read this book (which is weekly), we discover something new. The pages are just filled with drawings, tidbits of information, and unique descriptions of some incredible places from around the world. We often spend time not even reading this book, but rather discussing and expanding upon what Ella and Noah draw attention to.
The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy written and illustrated by Beatrice Alemagna
An adorable tale of a clever little girl named Eddie who is utterly determined to find her mother the most unusual, thoughtful, and remarkable birthday gift. As she begins to feel discouraged she quickly relies on her neighbourhood friends while embarking on her imaginative shopping adventure. This charming story is accompanied by the most whimsical illustrations, making it a forever favourite at bedtime.
Gaston written by Kelly DiPucchio, with illustrations by Christian Robinson
A New York Times Best Seller, Gaston is the most precious story about the love within a family, discovering where you truly belong, and accepting and loving yourself for who you really are. We just love Gaston the bulldog pup and all of his adorable siblings, Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, and Ooh-La-La, and Rocky, R icky, and Bruno.
Dragons Love Tacos written by Adam Rubin, with illustrations by Daniel Salmieri
Another New York Times Best Seller, we love this silly read-aloud story. Noah requests it night after night, being especially obsessed with all things dragons (and dinosaurs), tacos, and of course repeatedly asking us when we can invite all of his friends over for a taco party! Weâre always left with a case of the giggles after this one!
Dear Mr. Blueberry written and illustrated by Simon James
I saved the best for last â this charming book is one of my personal favourites. Dear Mr. Blueberry is the sweetest story between a teacher and his student, an imaginative little girl called Emily. The unlikely pen-pals correspond back and forth about a whale that sweet Emily spotted in her pond. The message of wonder and imagination throughout this story is what childhood and bedtime stories should all be about.

I have been SO excited to show you our new couch from Structube, well not new I guess since we have been enjoying it for a few months now! I have to admit, Craig totally takes over the chaise side whenever we watch tv - he loves being able to lay back and relax on this comfy leather sofa.
I am so excited to introduce a new weekly series to the blog â Bliss List! Each and every Friday, Iâll be curating and sharing six things that Iâm loving, feeling, using, eying, and coveting, while drawing from whatever is currently inspiring me. I would love this series to become a place where I can organically share a little bit of everything (however random it may be) rather than waiting to incorporate something into a more specific and concentrated blog post. My hope is that youâll love reading the Bliss List as much as I love writing it, and that you find a little something you can take away from it each week.
