World’s Best Guacamole

 worlds-best-guacamole

Though the food at our resort in Mexico was subpar, there were two things that the staff had done right again and again: guacamole and pico de gallo (thank god). I basically sustained myself off of these two staples for the entirety of our trip. And you’d think I would have gotten my fix after gorging on the stuff for an entire week. But no, not even close. When I arrived home, I made it my new mission to recreate the goodness, and recreate I did. Though I’ve tried many a version in my time my boss, Abby Larson, has basically mastered the stuff. And her recipe needs to make it’s rounds…

Champagne Party: Celebrating 4 Years

Today marks year four of an epic blogging journey. What started out as a fun little hobby has quickly spiralled into my heart and soul – a little place of happy that I look forward to coming back to each and every day. And I have you, yes you, to thank for that. Never, in my wildest dreams, could I have imagined how wonderful the blog world could be, and I feel so honoured to take up even the smallest part of it. If it were up to me, I’d throw a massive party to celebrate, one overflowing with champagne, and invite every single one of you. But since that isn’t exactly do-able at this point in time, I figured a virtual champagne party would have to do!

Thank you all, from the bottom of my hearts, for reading along over the last few years, for being with me during my highs and my lows, and being a constant source of inspiration and support. You guys are the best!

House Envy: Indoor Outdoor Living

IMG_0782

While I was away in Mexico last week I heard rumours that it was snowing in Toronto. Snow! In April! Though I didn’t quite mind at that moment, what with the miami vice I had in hand while lounging on the beach, I prepared for the worst when we arrived home all the same. Much to my delight, the weather has been semi-cooperative since our return, and you can legitimately smell that Spring is in the air. And this home? It’s indoor-outdoor design is basically Spring embodied. Bright and light, natural and organic, and just where I want to be this season. If you’re looking for me, I’ll be pretending I’m cuddled up with a good book on that incredible porch swing!
