In April I received a Gluten-Free Vanilla cake mix and a recipe card for a London Fog Gluten Free Blueberry Cake in my April White Willow Subscription Box. This was perfect for baking something Gluten Free. It was easy to follow and the cake turned out beautifully.
It was in the earlier years when we decided to go on a day trip to Chilliwack to explore the self guided Chilliwack Circle Farm Tour. I remember that it was a cloudy day and we stopped at around five different places on the Chilliwack Circle Farm tour which included Anita’s Certified Grain and Flour Mill, Rustic Soap, Happy Days Dairy, Chilliwack River Natural Honey, and we ended with lunch at Hofstede’s Country Barn. This is a great way to explore the Fraser Valley with Circle Farm Tours.
One year we took a Beginner/Intermediate Crochet Class at Baad Anna’s . It was once a week and students could bring their own crochet projects to work on or else follow the instructor’s beginner project. I followed the beginner project which was to crochet an infinity scarf by the end of the class series. I loved the wool at Baad Anna’s and even writing this post is making me want to return to make a few more infinity scarves as gifts for family and friends.
It all started with buying a new Janome Sewing Machine and signing up for classes at Spool of Thread. Once I started, I was on a roll. In August 2014 I started with the Tote Bag class. I practiced by making all of my girlfriends reversible tote bags for their birthday gifts.
Then I took the Zippered Pouch class and in August 2015 it was the first piece of clothing with the Miette Wrap Skirt. I have successfully learned to sew and can’t wait to continue with new sewing projects in the future.

In July 2014 my “sister” got married outside of London, England which was the perfect reason to travel to one of the places on my bucket list – London, England. It was a great time to be with family and friends and have a memorable adventure. I loved London and cherished every minute exploring the city, enjoying the shows, and spending time with my “adopted” family. London is an expensive city so this was a special trip – one in a lifetime.
A bucket list is something people talk about all of the time. But, how many people actually commit them to writing and set out to accomplish them? That is our plan! We have 40 things each on our list s right now and we have given ourselves 7 years to do it….we thought we would invite you along for the ride. Here we go!
