Scenes from my Weekend

Though this weekend was wonderful for a multitude of different reasons (some new wardrobe bits included), there is one specific moment that will forever and always take the cake: we found out that Justin’s sister is having a baby girl! The whole family got together on Saturday afternoon for our first-ever gender reveal party. I’m kind of loving this new trend, if for no other reason than it gives us all just one more excuse to celebrate. This will be the first baby in both our families and the excitement is absolutely palpable. A long weekend slam dunk, that’s for sure! Here’s some photographic evidence…

Lovely-&-Unrelated

Though I know we still have a solid month of summer left, Labour Day will forever and always mark the end of the season for me. And although Fall is technically my favourite of the bunch, I still like to take a moment to bid adieu to those warm, easy-breezy days. I’ve yet to fulfill even a fraction of the things I had unofficially added to my summer bucket list, but I am definitely excited for what’s ahead! I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend, and I’ll be back on Tuesday with more goodies! While I’m gone…

Late Summer Salad

late-summer-salad_1

I’ve been making this ridiculously delicious fig and mozzarella salad for a while now, and have been meaning to share it forever. So last week, I went out and picked up all the ingredients. And then life happened. And by the time I got around to actually making it my figs had gotten so sticky and icky that they were completely unusable. Out of sheer luck (thank you blogger gods!), the basket of fresh Ontario peaches I had purchased that same day were at the most perfectly edible consistency. Ripe and sweet and juicy and perfect. So I tossed them in, in lieu of the figs. And honestly? It was just as good, if not better, than the original recipe. It’s healthy, flavourful, versatile (apparently!) and makes for the perfect late summer salad. Plus, look how pretty!
