It seems like we haven’t sat down together in a long time. Like many of you I have been busy enjoying life and the travel opportunities that have presented themselves to me over the last few months. I am often jet setting from one destination to the next in break neck speed that I forget to stop and really appreciate the moment. In life I find things can get like that pretty easily if you don’t remind yourself that it’s more about the journey than the destination. Thankfully, recently I was able to find that literal and proverbial middle ground with Julio & Rebecca in Kingston.Continue reading “Finding That Middle Ground”
Recently, I decided to pay a visit to Kingston for work. Growing up in Ottawa, I would pass it by on the way to Toronto. But I think I’ve only ever stopped in maybe once or twice to explore, so I didn’t really ever get a sense of the city at all. I clearly had no idea what I was missing out on!

So… apparently September all of a sudden became the month of many destinations for me. Amid a demanding work schedule, aggressively saving to start the adoption process, and trying to find balance in life, I’ve been up down and all around the province.

Why? Because you need to experience these things for yourself to believe that they are all waiting for you in Ontario!Continue reading “Kingston is The Destination You Need to Experience to Believe”
If you haven’t heard of Etsy, I’m not sure we can be friends! haha! Etsy is where the creative people who actually do the crafts they pin on Pinterest (and do them well) to then sell them! They have everything and anything! Want a mug that says “Hello? Is it tea you’re looking for” with a picture of Lionel Richie’s face on the other side (my personal favourite!)? They have it! Want the CUTEST outfit for your lil one’s 1st birthday cake smash photoshoot? They have HUNDREDS! Want to find a vintage Fisher Price cash register, and not one of the new ones they’re making to look vintage? They have that too! With vendors from all over the world, Etsy has become the go-to for all things creative and one-of-a-kind! This summer you can experience the fun of discovering new things on Etsy in person in your home town! With Etsy’s first ever #EtsyRoadTrip you can meet and mingle with some of your favourite sellers while shopping their one-of-a-kind pieces on the spot!
