Today, I’m going to tell you about one of my favourite places in Toronto. The St. Lawrence Market. I love it. It feels like a little taste of not North America right smack in the middle of North America. When I ultimately leave Toronto, the St. Lawrence Market will be a thing that I miss.
Remember when I told you I was in Canmore for one of my best friends’ weddings? Well. It was amazing. Seriously amazing. It also resulted in a super fun animated GIF for your viewing pleasure! Happy Sunday Friends!
Last night I went to bed sad. The world lost a visionary. A do-er. A creative genius. All too soon. We found out while we were out having a fun dinner at Guu to celebrate my 29th birthday; I slipped away to the restroom and my husband checked his iPhone. An email from his dad
Whoa, I’m writing this after I finished the rest of the post. Get ready folks – this is a long one! But an exciting one too! And it is full of lists. You know how I feel about lists! I turn 29 today. I can’t really believe it. I seems like just yesterday I was
I’ve been out of the loop for awhile. A bad bout with the flu, 2012 wedding enquiries and consults coming out my ears (yay!), a full time job, wediting, and thinking and drafting a thoughtful note to be read out at my grandparents’ 60th anniversary party on the weekend has left not a lot of
I found the cutest business outfit on pinterest yesterday … right here. I fell madly in love with it, so decided to make my own version from things I owned in my own closet. How did I do? (PS – I fixed my white cuffs of my shirt – too much showing!)
I love the ever changing Etsy homepage. Most days it makes me swoon (not that I check out Etsy every day or anything). It is always a carefully curated collection of complementary items. (I should win an alliteration award.) Side note: I’ve always been fond of the word “alliteration” because it is sort of like
This picture was taken on September 9, 2001, meaning it is almost exactly 10 years old. These girls were my “crew” throughout my undergrad degree at the University of Alberta, and they remain some of my closest friends to this day. Of course, since we’re girls, we’ve had our share of “oh my god, I
You all know just how much I love pinterest, right? I love it a lot. With my heart and my soul. My favourite thing to do on weekend mornings is to grab a piping hot cup of coffee and pin away. The only thing wrong with pinterest is that I’m too inspired. I want to
Remember in March when I told you all about out super cool wedding invites, and then I told you I would talk about all sorts of fun wedding stuff? Well, here you go, more fun wedding stuff! (Because our wedding was the best wedding ever. For reals yo.) Today I’m going to talk to you
I talked to my mom on the phone last night. She told me I need to blog more. She’s right, but after so many false starts over the last couple of months, it is kind of embarrassing to come back and expect you to like me just as much. Like one of my favourite food
Dear Running: It’s been awhile, so I thought I would check in and see how you’ve been. I’m a little embarrassed about just how long it’s been — but you hurt me — worse than I thought you did at the time. And it took a long time for me to get over it. And
Yes. I know. It’s been weeks and weeks and weeks since I posted a “real” blog post – or at least one with lots of words. And my first post back is about fruit flies. I apologize. It’s been crazy since mid-June. So, before I talk about fruit flies, let me tell you just how
It’s been a whirlwind of an adventure through Paris, the Loire Valley and just yesterday, we arrived in the south of France at the Chateau Ventenac. Now that we’ve settled in the Chateau for a week, I’m going to get writing again – so you can expect a handful of posts this and next week!
In August 2008 I quit coffee. Not only coffee, I actually quit most caffeine. When I mention this, everyone always asks “why”. And there were a lot of reasons, some of which include: I was on my way to Africa, where I was worried about only finding instant coffee; I was already going to have
