Scenes from my Week

Red lips{red and white for Canada Day}

I’m now of the firm belief that we should always have Wednesdays off. The mid-week Canada Day holiday seemed silly at first, but it proved to be a great exercise in taking back that elusive work-life balance thing. I wasn’t originally going to take the day off as my to-do list feels like it’s never-ending, but a girlfriend of mine convinced me to head out with her on an impromptu adventure and I’m so glad that I did. We caught up on picnic blankets in Trinity Bellwoods, we grabbed a quick bite at Furlough, and enjoyed our own version of Canada Day fireworks in the form of “Magic Mike XXL”. All in all, a wonderful week, and I’m pretty tickled that we’re now faced with another two days off. Enjoy the weekend, and a very happy 4th of July to the folks just south of me!

An Elegant Cottage in Muskoka

Cozy corner at the cottage
Cottaging in Canada is somewhat of a religion. Our warm weather window is often short, which just means that we all tend to capitalize. And while the winters are bitterly cold, the balmy summers, barefoot in the wilderness, tend to make up for them tenfold. My siblings and I were lucky enough to be blessed with cottages on all sides of the family (lots to choose from!), and as we plan for our semi-yearly week up north, I find myself daydreaming of all things cottage-centric. Crystal clear lakes, an extra deep sofa to lounge in, and outdoor dining are officially on the horizon, and I couldn’t be more excited. And while ours aren’t quite as elegant as this cottage in Muskoka, I am terribly excited all the same.

Just a note: I’m going to be off tomorrow celebrating Canada Day, but I’ll be back on Thursday with more goodies to share!
