Open Roof Films
Well, it’s August 29th and summer is nearing it’s end. While I love the fall, I am having trouble accepting the end of the summer season. So, I have taken this week off work and decided to get my summer on before it is too late. I started with an informal kick-off last week at the Open Roof Festival held at The Amsterdam Brewery. While sitting in an outdoor theater, with a view...
Picture Perfect Picnic
While finishing up my workday on Friday afternoon, my mind began to drift toward thoughts of sunny summer days and how soon they are going to come to an end. This thought motivated me to arrange an inexpensive evening activity that would allow my husband and I to enjoy the weather, the beautiful parks near our home and each other’s company. I decided the best way to accomplish this would be to...
Organic Supper Club
I am one of those lucky people who are able to split their time between a home office and an office in downtown Toronto. I work from home two-three days per week and I love it.

Even though I have lived in Toronto for almost a decade, this was a great way to enjoy the city...
Summer Road-Tripping – Part 2: The Experiences
During our five days in Nova Scotia, we were definitely spoiled for choice when it came to finding fun ways to pass our time. In the past, my trips to Nova Scotia have been primarily to downtown Halifax for work, so I really wanted to explore what I had been missing. And since Nova Scotia is a place visited frequently by my husband as a youth, we both had ideas about what we wanted to do. We...
Summer Road-Tripping - Part 1: The Food
There’s just something about the summer road-trip that gives me a sense of adventure and romance. Perhaps I’ve seem too many coming-of-age, summer feel good movies, but once we decided to head to Halifax on a whim, I was ready for life on the open road. Over 10 days we covered almost 4500 kilometers in our Honda Civic Hybrid. During this time we did and saw a lot. I’ll be blogging this week...
