Introduction
Design and Lifestyle blog DESIGN THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE. www.lynneknowlton.com featuring DIY's, 'how to blog' tips, epic photo apps and an eco friendly adult sized treehouse created from an upcycled reclaimed barn.  The treehouse is now my blogging studio (when it isn't snowing) 

Writing about cancer (with spit and laughs), family life and travels and how to blog.

Social media expert within Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Blogging and Instagram. Still learning my way through Google +. Whew. 

Come say hello on the bloggy.  People say it's a cool place to hang out. 

It's definitely cool this time of year in the Canadian countryside.

Mom of four kids, one ginormous great Pyrenees dog named Oliver, and a few mice.  We live in the country, the mice just let themselves in.

We have lived locally for 13 years and try to support local businesses. Sadly, Homestead has become very run down over the years and yet we returned over and over again in support of our local community. Last night, the owner Gary hollered at my children and called my husband a liar. My children (who are very respectful ) had gone out on the golf cart for a few moments because my son had lost his iPhone while golfing with my husband during the day. Gary mistakenly thought my son was 11 years old. Not only was the owner wrong in his age assessment of my son, he was unacceptably unkind to us by hollering at my children, my husband and myself. His red faced, big bellied attitude was embarrassing and rude. The restaurant itself has poor ventilation with a very smokey atmosphere. It is hard to sit and enjoy a meal inside with all the fryer smoke. We chose to sit outside to avoid the smoke. The cabins for rent are very rundown and the overall look/feel of the 'resort' is a one star at best. We will never be returning again.
