Toronto Greenhouse & Life Update

Hi there! I just realized that it has been exactly a month since my last blog post, which is my longest break yet. We have taken a few photos recently but the really cold weather has kept us hibernating! We also lost my Grandpa this past month at the age of 90 years. We were all very sad to see him pass, but knew he was going to a better place. Between the cold weather…

Lumina Borealis in Kingston, ON

Hi there! I hope you all had a great winter holidays and new years! Its our first week back to work and we are slowly getting back on our feet and back into a routine!

It has also been extremely cold (-40C today with windchill), which has caused us to slow…

Summertime Strawberry Picking

Hi there! We went strawberry picking a couple of days ago at Fruition Berry Farm just outside of Kingston. We had been trying to go forever but we kept getting rained out. The forecast called for rain all day, but we ended up getting lucky and had a beautiful evening picking strawberries with a gorgeous sunset. I think everyone else was also anticipating rain, because we ended up having the entire place essentially to ourselves! It…

Throughout my childhood we always marked the first day of summer with the first swim in the lake! One of my summer goals is to get on (or in) the water as much as possible this summer. Nothing makes the summer feel longer than swimming in the…

Finding Magnolias and the Secret to …

I would love to have an app that documented all of the beautiful locations and flowers in each city! However, I also love the thrill of unexpectedly stumbling across a beautiful spot. The other night we decided to enjoy the warm weather and go on a scavenger walk through the city to find magnolias. We found a couple of trees in strange locations but then found this perfect magnolia tree beside an old stone building…

Setting Resolutions & Finding Happiness

Setting Resolutions As I mentioned in my earlier post, my grandmother sadly passed away last week after a long wonderful life. We had a lot of family time together to reflect on her values, accomplishments, and memories. It got me reflecting on how I want to live my life and and what I want to be known for among my family and friends. I am a true believer that everyone has room for improvement and…
