TIFF is one of the most amazing, incredible, busy and blurry times of the year for me. We always seem to have at least five things on the go at once, and for the most part, the festival seems to end in the blink of an eye.

I won’t jump the gun on Catherine’s upcoming sleep post in partnership with Casper (I got a preview and it is something you do NOT want to miss!), but I can share from personal experience that adding Casper to our lives was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. And now that Catherine understands first hand what I mean, you’ll be seeing a lot more from us about sleep when we aren’t taking a quick nap.
