Wine Biking Route

Visiting Local Niagara Wineries + Biking + Camping = Fun & Sustainable Getaway! This past June, Mike and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary and having a weekend to getaway (not always easy with Mike in medical school!), we wanted to get out and enjoy summer and the things we love. Summer, is a time for getting outdoors, camping and well, enjoying wine! It started with let’s go camping. Simple enough, a chance to be outdoors and most importantly cost-effective…

Food and Drink Fest

A Review of the Hamilton Food & Drink Fest 2016. This past weekend we met up with our hubbies to check out the 11th Annual Food and Drink Fest at the Hamilton Convention Centre. The great thing about this event is you get to try the latest and greatest variety of local and international foods, wines and craft beers from popular restaurants, breweries & wineries. Did we mention it is also all under one roof? The location is so central it can’t…

Makeology 2016

A Review of Makeology 2016 This past Saturday, April 16 at The Cotton Factory in Hamilton, Makeology 2016 was a really well-attended event celebrating handmade, local goods and guess who was there? Yours truly! I made my way to Makeology with my partner in crime Dana to experience this creative craft fair. A Bit of Background on Makeology… Makeology, which started only 3 years ago was originally an online Facebook group that brought like-minded makers or makeologists together. The community of talented artists ranged from soap…

Sunday Rituals

Sunday Rituals & Quality Time. For the last few Sundays, Ryan and I have sort of begun a new Sunday ritual. After or before any events or daily activities we have scheduled that day, we venture outside for a walk and explore Hamilton. These Sunday walks are the perfect opportunity to talk and catch up on everything during the past week or what is planned for the week ahead, as we only have Sundays off together. It has become something…

Spring Events Hamilton

8 Hamilton Happenings this Spring I love spring! It is a beautiful time of year when the days are getting longer, the snow is either melting or nowhere to be seen and the flowers are blooming. For all these reasons and more, we can finally stop hibernating indoors and find the energy to actually get out of our house to see and experience things happening in our community. Another thing I love is Hamilton and the surrounding area. There is so…

Michigan Stadium Gates

A Quick Weekend Trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan – Part II. Last week I shared Part I of our weekend trip in Ann Arbor, and today I’m sharing about our Sunday together. After checking out of the hotel, we headed to RoosRoast again. I had been telling Ryan about the cafe and my experience the previous day, and wanted to go back for another tasty honey vanilla latte. We weren’t sure where to go for breakfast, and asked the baristas…

The Dearborn Inn Lobby

A WEEKEND IN ANN ARBOR – PART I At the beginning of the month, I had the opportunity to tag along with Ryan for a weekend trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan. Neither of us had ever been and I’d heard many great things about the college town, so when I found out about the trip, I jumped on the opportunity to go explore a new place! The great thing about Michigan is it’s close proximity to Ontario. The drive to…

Magic Kingdom

Tips for Walt Disney World from a Pro I’ve just returned home from a trip to one of the happiest places on earth, Walt Disney World. I tagged along with my husband on one of his work trips, as I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to visit one of my favourite places. For me, a trip to Disney is very nostalgic. My family has a Disney timeshare, so I’ve been going since I was very small, and because of…
