Yet Another Reason to Visit Montreal

With the summer months around the corner and sunshine shinning on my face today while I catch up on emails I find myself feeling inspired to plan travel and day trips with Julio. Our Kia Canada Seltos is ordered and on the way, and it would be a shame if I didn’t take advantage of being so close to Montreal while we live in Ottawa – in case you didn’t have enough reasons to visit the city, a new experience just launched at one of my favourite hotels in the city and I want to tell you all about it!

Sometimes in Life, You Have To Go The Extra Distance

As many of you may have already heard, I recently moved from Toronto after ten amazing years – click here for all the details. While I will of course miss living in the big city, the reason I left was to put into place a real plan (and budget) for us to start our family.

Why I’m Okay With My Fifteen Minutes of Fame Winding Down

As I head in to April 2021, my door isn’t knocked on as much as it once was as a creator.

I’m Leaving Toronto and It’s Time I Tell You Why

It’s a blog title I never thought in a million years I would be writing on if I’m being honest. Nine years ago at this time of year, I was three short months in to my life in the big city and it was finally going to work out this time I assured myself. A few moves prior to that one fizzled out – for those of you from Toronto you may not know this, but moving to Toronto isn’t easy. If you don’t have (affordable) housing, a good job / any job lined up, a support network and other things many of us take for granted ready for you here, it’s overwhelming to say the least.

So why after all of this success and flourishing would I ever give that all up?
