IMG_4576

While we’re getting unpacked from the holiday and gearing up for NYE celebrations, I thought I’d share some pictures. The week started off with a bad ice storm and a big power outage, but thankfully things improved from there and we enjoyed a great Christmas in the end. You’ll see some of the ice-covered branches […]

You know, I didn’t think we were going to have a white Christmas this year, but boy was I sure wrong. Murphy’s Law: You will get a snow storm right before you make the long drive home in your car that sucks in snow. Murphy’s Law #2: Your car battery will die with a trunk […]

St. Jacob’s Farmer’s Market, Fresh Restaurant, and Other Fun

st jacob's farmers market-4428

My goal for the last few weeks of summer is to spend more time outdoors. This hopefully means more trips to farmer’s markets, dining al fresco, swimming in lakes, iced tea on patios, and long late night walks.

The Big Three Oh

    On Saturday, Dave and Ewa hosted a birthday bash for Eric with about 50 of our friends and family. I can’t think of a better way to ring in a 30th birthday celebration. We all had a blast. I managed to lug around my DSLR for the entire day, despite my best efforts […]

This is the first time I’ve opened my laptop in almost 4 days now, which feels like f-o-r-e-v-e-r. As much as I miss blogging, it also feels really good to disconnect once and a while! I finally found a spare moment this afternoon to go through some pictures, so here is a recap of what […]

As much as I love dining at Fresh restaurant, trying new-to-me vegan restaurants is one of my favourite things to do, especially if it is close by. Enter The Naked Sprout – Burlington’s (mostly) organic, raw & cooked, vegan, and gluten-free restaurant. It’s a 15 minute drive from me, making it the closest vegan restaurant […]

On Tuesday, we had the pleasure of lunching at True Food Kitchen at the Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix. Many of you recommended it on the blog and on my Facebook page (thank you!), so we figured it was a safe bet. I later found out that the famous Dr. Andrew Weil (along with restaurateur […]

Bidding Farewell To My 27th Year

IMG_0422

Last night’s Birthday bash was a good time! I was a bit slow moving when I got up this morning, but it was nothing a little juice, water, hot yoga, and Union Square Café Bar Nuts couldn’t fix… Eric asked me to make the famous Union Square Café Bar Nuts -a double batch! Everyone always […]
