Summer 2019 | Georgian Bay

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

to the coast

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. You can follow along on Instagram or follow the hashtag #ToTheCoast2017. Now to fall asleep to the Ocean waves crashing on the beach.

California Adventure, Part 3 – Venice Beach + Santa Monica

IMG_1534

Our last leg of our trip has us drive from Palm Springs down to Santa Monica, but first stopped first in at Venice Beach, a short hop skip and a jump from Santa Monica (you could walk the boardwalk between the two but we were trying to pack in as much as possible) Venice and, Venice Beach were like a confetti explosion in my brain. I hadn’t really fully prepared myself for it but I was in love. So many different people, walks of life, vibrant colours, things happening around you – I was in love. Continue Reading →
