The ULTIMATE Photography Bundle 2017!

Most of you know that, along with this blog, my part-time job in insurance marketing and attempting to keep my home and family all healthy and happy, I also dabble in photography. Now more than ever, really, since the girls arrived. I want to capture as much of their lives as I can, because they’re growing SO quickly, and I want to have lots to look back on!

Maybe you’re like me! You love the idea of capturing your special family moments with your camera, and maybe you’ve even dreamed of making money with your photography skills, but reality is just a little too real. You feel like a wannabe photographer who’s never going to be great—or at least, certainly not as good as you want to be.

But what if you could find resources that would launch you from wannabe photographer to an I-can’t-believe-you-took-that photographer? Or maybe even a charging-what-you-want photographer?

Well, I think I’ve found some resources to help you: The Ultimate Photography Bundle!

It’s a curated collection of 41 eBooks, eCourses, videos, and tools to help you get the photography skills you’ve always dreamed of. And, while the creators of this collection are top-notch photographers now, they haven’t forgotten what it’s like to be frustrated by their lack of skills.

Top 7 Coolest Things to Do in Ontario

I’ve been itchin’ to do some traveling these days. (Maybe because I’m coming down to the time when traveling won’t be an option for a while, ha!) We had trips to Boston and New York slated for this year, but then I got pregnant, and we decided to be responsible and save that money instead. Definitely the right choice, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still dream about a little wanderin’ around the globe. And lately, I’ve been thinking about Canada – specifically Ontario! So I thought I’d share with all of you. (Plus, I know I have some Canadian readers – I’d love for y’all to chime in!

Being larger than the countries of France and Spain combined, the province of Ontario has a lot to offer in the way of scenery and things to do. In fact, there’s so much to do that choosing a list of activities can be a difficult task if you’re not familiar with the must-see destinations. If you’re planning a trip to the city and are wondering which places you should visit before leaving, check out the following list of the top seven things to do in Ontario:

1. See Niagara Falls

By far the most amazing scenic feature to be found in this province is the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls, displaying the sheer power of nature with a massive waterfall that is constantly dropping about 800,000 gallons of water from the Niagara River into a pool more than 130 feet below. If you visit be sure to take a ride on the Maid of the Mist – a boat that takes you along the base of the falls – and take a walk through one of the tunnels that brings you behind the falls. There are a number of hotels near Niagara Falls that provide a great view of the falls in all their glory.
