My Breakfast with Fate

Fate can come in different shapes and forms; it can be personified as a person, place, coincidence, accident, letter, email, or sign. I met Fate mid-Sunday morning at a new diner close to home. This version of Fate came in a 5 foot 2 bundle of confidence and happiness complete with gorgeous eyes and anContinue reading “My Breakfast with Fate”

Mini-Honeymoon in Toronto

I’ve learned recently that the two questions newlyweds receive most are: Where are you going on your honeymoon? When are you having kids? (Please stop asking me this) With Christmas right around the corner and the simple fact that more than a week off work for myself and my husband wasn’t viable, we decided toContinue reading “Mini-Honeymoon in Toronto”

Although I’ve had fun at allContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower”

The Bride’s Diary – The Bachelorette

Another wedding milestone has come and gone. On Saturday my sister hosted my bachelorette party at Lula Lounge in Toronto. My sister struggled with the planning because I’m kind of weird. I don’t like clubs or big groups, I go to bed early and send my spare time in bed reading. I would rather goContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bachelorette”

Dinner at Bar Isabel

Open your eyes. If you walk too quickly you just might miss it but once you see it, it’s difficult to pay attention to anything else on that side of College Street. Thick wooden panels frame a gorgeous wooden door illuminated red by the signature¬†Isabel scrawl. When you walk into the restaurant¬†your eyes need aContinue reading “Dinner at Bar Isabel”
