It's been a beautiful summer in Toronto. Given the crazy cold winter we had, we've been trying to take advantage of being outside as much as possible.
Eating pancakes reminds me of being a kid again. Alyssa and my mom (good ol' Linda) used to make pancakes every Sunday for a good portion of our childhood and every time I eat them I'm filled with the warm fuzzies.
For my birthday weekend we decided to do a full on scavenger hunt. We hadn't done a proper one since we were in high school, but they're wicked fun, especially when you've got a big group of people.
You can totally go the traditional tie dye route, meaning get a kit and hang tight for 24 hours while your masterpiece dries and sets. Or, you can take the quick and dirty approach like we did.
For us, summer means popsicles. There's something about popsicles that are super nostalgic. When we were kids we used to hit the corner store and get those basic popsicles you could break in half. I would always get really excited when I could track down the banana ones. But it's time for something a little bit cooler.
We felt like getting crafty and yarn wall hangings are all the rage. And it’s no wonder, they’re gorgeous and super easy to customize when it comes to the colours, size and how you choose to trim the ends.
Sometimes all you need is a little R&R, you know? We decided to have a slow day together and do an at-home spa day.
When you work hard during the week (and wake up to an alarm, the worst), you have to give it your all on the weekends. For me, one of the best ways to do that is have an epic brunch, and today that meant waffles.
Guys, spring is finally here! If you live somewhere with proper seasons like us, then you know how exciting spring is. Waking up to sunny days again makes me stoked about life. I want to do everything possible outside (probably because I’m super low on Vitamin D as a result of this brutal winter).
