Not much feels better than the freedom of thought, speech and spirit. I am the type that craves open road, adventure, and change…and I have grown comfortable with the notion that my soul will forever remain a curious wanderer.

Hitting the road this weekend, heading further into the mountains with my love and our pooch. Two sleeps away and I can already feel the dirt and smell the burning camp fire.

Staying inspired.

From The Garden.

Last week I decided to infuse some olive oil with fresh Rosemary from my window sill. You’re supposed to let it sit in a cool place for over a week, buuut I got a little antsy and gave it a taste last night. To sum it up simply – fresh bread and homemade olive oil are (not surprisingly) a match made in heaven.

Give it a try! I followed this recipe, but there are many variations out there! Tonight I am attempting my first homemade loaf of bread, fingers crossed it’s as great a success…

Not much smells better than fresh Rosemary in the Spring :)


This Long Weekend….

I wish I was going here!!  To Muskoka, where many memories have been made, and subsequently forgotten. Where nights were spent sleeping on the roof, Bacardi Rum flowed like a small waterfall, and pad thai was “healthy”. The smell, the sounds, the happiness that float around Muskoka make for the perfect place to spend a long weekend. Or, in mine & LB’s case, a summer to never forget.

Where has the road taken you this long weekend?

Cheers people!

Don’t these wonderful DIY party hats make you want to host a party?! They remind me that you don’t really need a reason to celebrate or a special occasion to host a party…perhaps you could even wear these hats just to make a Spring Day really super fun. For instance, I bet a patio mimosa would taste reeeeally good wearing one of these….

Whatever your occasion, or non-occasion, consider sporting the party hat to your next Spring Soiree! Thank you for the inspiration,


Up, Up and Away

Have you seen the movie “Up”?

If not, drop what you’re doing and find the nearest video store…you won’t be disappointed. I absolutely love when people take ideas to the next level.

A courageous team of hot air balloon pilots and engineers teamed up to turn this fictional story into reality, and what a blast they had! Read the full story here. 

Experimentation. Realization. Investigation. Isn’t that what this crazy life is all about?

Pure, old fashion imagination. Don’t ever forget how that feels.



See You Again.

Sipping an afternoon tea (in my latest attempt to cut back on coffee) listening to this song makes the moutains feel very far away from dear friends and family back home. Excited for catch ups, road trips, and celebrations in June! Can’t wait to see you all again, and for paths to cross! Thanks for sharing Gav xo


Where Am I?
