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…

MY iFLY TORONTO EXPERIENCE

January 13, 2016
iFLY Toronto

My 1st Experience at iFLY Toronto! You may remember me telling you in our Christmas Traditions post how every year on Christmas Eve Ryan and I see a movie with his family. This year was different. The original plan was to go dog sledding, but with the lack of snow it wasn’t possible. So instead, we all went indoor skydiving at iFLY Toronto! Leading up to the day, I was quite nervous since I didn’t know what to expect. I…

Hamilton Hiking Photo

Sharing four favourite hiking spots in Hamilton that are also perfect dog-walking trails! Hamilton, the city of waterfalls, and a place I proudly call home. One of my favourite things about this city is all the great trails, which run in and around the city, and when I’m feeling overwhelmed or stressed, I love to hit the trails with Abby.

NORTHERN ONTARIO ADVENTURES

Traveling-Northern-Ontario

Why Traveling to Northern Ontario is Worth the Trip. When I was a child I thought going North meant going to my grandparents on the Bruce Peninsula. Northern Ontario took on a new meaning when I was 19 and visited my in-laws cottage for the first time. “Sleepy Hollow” as they call it, is on Lake Windigoostigwan, very close to the boundary of Quetico Provincial Park.  48.700846 North, 90.979203 West in the heart of Northern Ontario where the Trans-Canada Highway…
