Scenes from my Weekend

It’s officially been an entire month since we spent a weekend in the city, which meant that we had a whole lot of Toronto time to make up for. And though I had every intention on scrubbing our place clean (oh, the dust bunnies!) dinners out and Leslieville Farmers’ Market’s bacon fest somehow snuck in there and took precedence. I’m a terrible adult – I know. But between finally seeing what all the hype was about at Electric Mud (totally get it now), playing photographer at a family friend’s 50th, and a day at the races for my dad’s birthday, it’s safe to say that this weekend was conquered.

Watermelon Mojitos, aka Summer in a Glass

A recipe for watermelon mojitos

I would never intentionally will the summer months away, but come mid-August I’m typically ready for fall to begin. It’s my favourite season after all, what with its cozy sweaters, glorious hues and crisp evenings. But this year? This year is different. Perhaps it’s the fact that the weather has been unseasonably cool up until recently, but I really don’t feel as if I’ve had my fair share of the season. So for the next few weeks, I’m making it my mission to tackle everything left on my summer bucket list. And up first on that list: suck back a whole buttload of Henry Happened‘s watermelon mojitos! They’re like summer in a glass and you really can’t go wrong.
