Has another year passed? No, seriously….has it? What did we do in 2021? Last year I wrote a recap of our Year in 2020 (which you can read here if you missed it) and finished by saying 2021 would get better. I’m not sure it did. We kicked off 2021 by celebrating our dear Felicity’s … More 2021: Year in Review
If you have followed along on our Hong Kong housing, you’ll remember our first little place (see it here) in Wan Chai and then the larger unit in that same building (see it here), which we moved in to when I was pregnant with Campbell. You might remember that I mentioned in my 2019 Review … More Tseung Kwan O Apartment Tour
Well here were are, over 30% of the way through 2020 and I’m still trying to summarize 2019. I was an absolute blur of a year full of changes and confusions; maybe I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that happened.
No surprises here…our little toddler’s lifestyle (can you believe Campbell is TWO now?!) is demanding a few changes around our place. When we decided to upgrade from our previous one bedroom apartment I wondered how well and for how long our two bedroom, two bathroom space would work for us. I’m happy to report that we … More Hong Kong Apartment: Recent Changes

Our former Vancouver digs – 800 sq ft one bedroom place (see photos of that here) was never going to cut … More Hong Kong House Sizes
At some point during our time here in Hong Kong (probably somewhere between learning I was pregnant and deciding to move to a slightly larger place to accommodate our baby’s arrival), I got really interested in small-space dwelling with a baby. I discovered a great blog written by another small-space-dwelling-Alison; 600SQFTANDABABY captures her life in Vancouver living … More Do You Need to Be Creative to Live Small?
Wow, we have quite a bit of stuff hanging on our walls! We have started to gather some favourite pieces of art and brought many along with us to bring the walls of our Canadiana Haven to life. Even though everything was set up and we were settled in, it only really started to feel … More Our Art-Filled Hong Kong Apartment
It was a big day in Vancouver back on March 9th. After all the planning and packing, it was finally moving day. The relocation contract covered packing, moving and shipping a container full of our belongings (which I’m sure we didn’t fill), so on the last day of possession of our New Westminster apartment a team … More Hong Kong Apartment: The Container Arrives
