Low Carb Zucchini Spaghetti Recipe

One of the biggest challenges I felt when first going low carb was what to make my family for dinner. We were so used to baking a frozen store bought something because it was fast and easy and we were busy! The only thing that has changed is that now, we are busier than ever.

Planting Fruit Trees

The first wave of fruit trees are in the ground!

Posted by Kyle

One of the first projects we took on when we moved to the country (aside from an extensive interior reno) was planting fruit trees. We did this because on average fruit trees take about 3 years to bear fruit and we didn’t want to waste any time.

Well hello there.

You have seen a few posts from my lovely wife Bonnie already so I figured I would take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Kyle and I am the other half of the dynamic duo known as Bonnie and Kyle (insert Bonnie and Clyde joke here).

I am the chief renovation officer of this operation after having picked up a large skill set from my father over the years (Thanks Dad.. It comes in super handy to be handy). I am extremely interested in fitness and nutrition, gardening/beekeeping, personal finance and of course, renovating so expect to hear a lot from me on these topics.

Looking forward to getting to know you.

What’s the deal?

Let me start by saying this is not our dream property. Kyle and I have been together since we were 16 and have always dreamed of ‘country living’ but what we had in mind was more in the realm of 80+ acres, not 2. So what’s the deal? Why did we move onto two acres only 5 minutes from Winnipeg? Kids. Yup, kids happened and we realized what compromise is. Sure, we could have moved an hour or more from the city but balance was our goal. Being close to medical care, child care options and maximizing the time the kids get to spend with grandparents and extended family were all very important factors in the decision. 

So now that we are here we want to transform our property into our dream property through renovations, plantings / yard improvements and other hobbies which would not have been possible within city limits. 

We’ve been living on our little homestead for just over a month, and had the property for almost two before moving in. Since we’ve just started this blog there is a lot of catch up to do!
