Walk in the park 🍂
Happy Friday friends! It's been awhile (or maybe ever??) since I properly introduced myself on here. I'm Heidi and I'm the Mama, and writer, behind Itsy Bitsy Haligonians. My husband and I have two kids, a seven year old daughter and a five year old son, and we've lived in various parts of the HRM for most (or ALL in the kids' cases!) of our lives.

Growing up I knew I always wanted to be a writer, and then, in my early twenties, I worked at a community resource centre and fell in love with helping people find the information they needed to build a strong community. Itsy BItsy Haligonians, is basically a mash-up of those two passions!

As a family we love exploring our city, being outside in nature, hiking or biking, checking out the latest playground or local event, reading lots and lots of books, and sharing the scoop on amazing local businesses and organizations that support and serve Halifax families (and then sharing all of the information we gather on the blog so you can enjoy these things too!). Thanks for following along with us - I'd love to hear a bit about what your family loves to do together in Halifax in the comments!

Oh sweet girl, I get more sad everyday as I know time is coming to an end and I will have to leave you for 2.5 months. I have been enjoying our days together so much more knowing I won’t see you for 10 whole weeks. Sometimes it doesn’t feel fair that you don’t understand why I’ll be gone for so long. I already can’t wait to get back home to you 💙 #mumpost

Wishing I had more energy today. Kind of like I did when I walked an hour to see this view and an hour back. It was worth it. And I'm glad I got to experience it with my parents. I won't forget this road trip.🚗🌊

I love fashion shows!!💃 Something about getting pampered all day and then putting on a piece that was handcrafted makes me feel like a masterpiece. These artists put so much hard work and effort into what they do, to only show off the final look for a few mins on the runway. I'm always honoured when someone selects me to represent their passions and wear it as a badge of pride.

Last night I had the pleasure of walking the final run of @frankiefrancisdesigns Transcendent collection! Tonight I'm wearing @adrienne_goodine Lemonade and Cupcake line! 😍👑 Thank you both for bringing me along on your fashion journeys.

I found and old memory card that fell behind a filing cabinet. Turns out, it had a bunch of old shots from a trip I took back in 2014 that I thought didn't turn out or got deleted, including these of a humpback mother and her calf.

Apple picking is something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s nice to hand pick your own perfect apples, that aren’t covered in wax like in the store. The freshest, local apples! Now I’m off to bake some apple pies 🥧🍎🤗

It's funny that we've spent so much time exploring the world - but not our own back yard. So when Danette + Joan said they rented a cabin up north and planned a trip just hiking the highlands, I couldn't sit this one out! So we're spending the week in a little cabin in Cape North, hiking as much as we can. What a treat to be with these ladies surrounded by the beautiful automn leaves. 🍂🧡
