Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying a day filled with delicious food, loved ones, caffeine, laughter, chocolate, and fun. Did I mention chocolate and caffeine? Ok. Just making sure we are on the same page here. We have had a great day at my in-laws place. We didn’t end up opening our gifts until […]

IMG_4185

    Eric wrapping our nephew’s gifts!     Rudi and his catnip that got stuck on his tooth. Flashback five years ago to Christmas 2005… 2010: A lot healthier these days!   This was before a dinner out on Saturday night to an Italian restaurant. I realized it was a bad choice not wearing […]

The Day I Fell In Love With Coffee

20100918-IMG_7499

In Paris, there are lovers on every cobblestone corner, regal weddings parading about locking their love on a chain link fence, and old married couples closing up the shop after a long day of work, interlocking fingers as they walk home. Love is in the air and cupid strikes when you least expect it to. […]

Mushroom, Onion, & Spinach Tart with ‘Goat Cheeze’

20100927-IMG_3475

Good morning! Miraculously, I’m still waking up around 5-5:30am since I have been back. I want this early to rise, early to bed streak to become a habit because I have fallen in love with the early morning again. I will be having a discussion tomorrow on early rising and the timing of meals, so […]

Good Day! I wanted to show you a few of my purchases from Paris… A cookie press! I’m sensing vegan ginger cookies on the horizon! ;) I also got a print of the Eiffel tower. Sad story: My sister bought my mom and I each a gorgeous oil painting in Paris and we forgot them […]

My travels recently brought me to one of the most beautiful and delicious places on earth. Paris, France. Stuffing my suitcase with stilettos and wheatgrass powder, I was eager to experience this historic city with my mom and my sister. My only dilemma? My Vegan diet was the antithesis of the French cuisine. Still, I […]

Oh La La

20100918-IMG_7564

Our last day in Paris was one to remember. It was perfect in every sense of the word. I am putting the ‘Paris is dirty’ rumours to rest! It just couldn’t be further from the truth. It is one of the cleanest cities we have EVER seen.       We made our way to […]

My Favourite Food In Paris

20100922-IMG_8486

Oh boy, do I love the East to West time zone travel much more than West to East! East to West is always a piece of cake. I love that I automatically get up super early in the morning. This morning I awoke after a solid 7 hours of sleep at 5am. It was the […]

Paris Hit List, Take Two

20100921-IMG_8342

Hello :) For some odd reason I am writing this post after a long day of traveling. Luckily, (sadly?) the Paris transportation strike did not effect our travels today, although many flights were indeed cancelled. It is currently around 8:30pm Toronto time and 2:30am Paris time right now and I am still figuring out why […]
