Oscar was home sick this week but I needed to get out of the house and break up the routine, so my boys and I headed out to a shop I had been following on Instagram for a short time - Kendall & Co. I had seen their epic window display of ornaments on IG and I needed to see them myself. The boys were initially reluctant to go, but once they stepped inside, they were just as enamoured as I was. I have never seen such a brilliant display of awesome, unconventional ornaments. If you're in Toronto, you must visit this gem of a store in Cabbagetown. I bought a few gorgeous ornaments and have decided it must be a tradition to go back every December to pick out a new one. xo Lindsay
Happy September! Oscar heads back to school this week, and although I’m sorry to see the Summertime end, I’m looking forward to the return to routines and some hours to spend working during the day as opposed to late night hours responding to e-mails. We had the loveliest summer, a highlight was renting a cottage on Georgian Bay. We rented through AirBnB, and found a sweet little cottage right on the water. Although we adore my family cottage in the Kawarthas, the vibe of Georgian Bay is so special and unique, that for my 40th, we made a return trip to a special beach I vacationed on as a child. My Mom and sister joined us, and it was the most perfect stay. It was really out of a movie, the small ice cream corner store, kids walking along pine tree roads carrying their towels around their neck as they walked back from the beach. We were lucky to get a cottage right on the water, so the sound of waves lulled us to sleep at night. Click through for some photos from our family stay. xo
The beautiful Sunsets of Georgian Bay
The one day I changed out of a bathing suit and blow dried my hair during our stay
We packed up the child, loaded the car and headed off on a road trip across Canada – destination, the coast. This Summer it is the East. I’m looking forward to doing the West sometime soon. I have salty hair, a child that is experiencing an amazing summer, and a husband that is an expert at navigating roads and booking hotels.
