Happy Thursday Folks!
Toronto was our destination last week. It always amazes me the availability of basically everything – except maybe fresh air – in the big cities: the diversity of produce and ethic food at such reasonable prices, and the range of public transportation, art, and shopping. Our bellies were full of Lebanese, Mexican, Korean, Chinese, and Ethiopian food. Walking early morning through Kensington Market while most stores were still closed and take photos of the graffiti was sort of meditative. You see, this was our first trip without our toddler and although it was lovely to serenely enjoy our days, we really missed the little bugger. Commonly one of us would spurt out: “Samuel would love to see this!”, “What would Samuel say if he saw this?”.
Upon our return we took the little one to a mini-road trip where we got our Christmas tree. Each year it is such a different experience! Two years ago I had gigantic 7-month pregnant belly, last year our 10-month old was propped up on my back in a carrier, and this year he was running around picking rocks and helping daddy measure the tree. This motherhood journey still amazes me!
Last weekend SeaBerry Studios also had its first private function! A group of 6 girls with ages that ranged from 5 years old to 13 joined together to celebrate Eloise’s 6th birthday. It was wonderful to see all of them collaborate while we made a sparkling lip balm and “sweet dreams” massage oil. So much laughter, wonder, and fun! I could do this every day!
Olivia Canela is also having a big event starting tomorrow. One of my favourite sales is taking place at the Anna Templeton Centre from 12 pm tomorrow to 4:30 pm Sunday. The Christmas Tea and Sale joins together craftpeople and artists while home-made quiche, soup and salad, coffee, tea, and sweet treats are being served in the Tea Room. How great is that?!
Have a wonderful week! Make it count.
