Daylight savings was last weekend, and some of us are still feeling the effects. While an extra hour of sunlight in the evening has been a welcome change from the dark winter months, losing an hour of sleep was the last thing we wanted or needed on the weekend. The good news is that are bodies will adjust, and the next time change come fall will give us an extra hour of sleep. We are counting down the days!

Sleep is incredibly important; this has never been up for debate. Since the dawn of time, sleep has been considered an absolute necessity in order for people to function at their highest possible level. Our human bodies require sleep to rest and recharge. It comes only second to eating and drinking. Most treatment plans for any bodily ailment

Gorgeous home on Bow Crescent - own a piece of history!

This stunning property was built in 2005 using the original blueprints of the Purcell Elmslie “Prairie School of Architecture - Purcell House” built in 1913 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The reason to recreate the “Purcell House” on Bow Crescent was to highlight this community's respect for nature.

The house is known for its innovative arrangement of space, organized on a single axis, open from one end to the other, evoking spaciousness. Its overall design and decoration emphasizes a clean, modern aesthetic staying in harmony with natural surroundings on Bow Crescent. The wall of glass windows connects the interior of the house to the outside.

The entry to the home radiates beauty, welcome

Congratulations on finding your new home sweet home! Sometimes finding the right house can be a long, complex process. You can breathe easy now: the paperwork is signed, the mortgage approved, and the keys are in your hand. This marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life and we couldn't be more excited for you. 

Settling into your new home is similar to settling into a new season. With spring upon us here in Calgary, everyone is looking for a fresh start. We are adjusting to the new sunlight hours, clearing out the garage for a deep clean, taking down winter décor and pulling out the pastels and florals, and just generally preparing for something new. Lucky for you, a fresh start is inevitable. 

While having a new home is exciting, it can

We hope you have a great day celebrating this historic Irish holiday! 

St. Patrick's Day was brought over to Canada from Ireland via Irish immigrants back in the 1700's. The first celebration of St Patrick's Day was in "1759 by Irish soldiers serving with the British army following their conquest of part of New France, a French colony in North America" (Time and Date). Since then, it has become a fun addition to the overall Canadian cultural experience. 

Here in Calgary we go all out for St. Patrick's Day! We may not turn our river green like they do in Chicago (seriously... check out this video from last year's St. Patrick's Day), the spirit of the season is alive and well. Looking for a place to throw back a Guinness and cheers your Irish friends

This weekend is daylight savings and to say we are looking forward to it would be a lie. Falling back one hour we can %100 get on board with, but springing forward one hour and losing that hour of sleep? Not our most favourite yearly event. 

While springing forward means less sleep the night of, it does mean that our mornings get a little brighter. Has anyone else noticed the birds singing before your alarm clock goes off, or the warm forecast for next week?Apparently nature is ready to spring forward, and for that we cannot complain. 

Not everyone recognizes Daylight Savings. Just ask our neighbours to the east; Saskatchewan has chosen to forego all recognition of daylight savings. They're already teasing us about our short night on
