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

Another thing I love is Hamilton and the surrounding area. There is so…

CRAFT BEER FOR THE ROOKIE BEER DRINKER

November 18, 2015
Beer Flight.

Whenever I’ve been out for dinner or getting drinks with friends, I’ve never been the person to order a beer. Beer just really wasn’t my thing. I didn’t enjoy the taste or appreciate all the different styles, until now. In Hamilton, we are so lucky to have a growing craft beer industry. Not only that, there are so many restaurants, coffee shops and bars with a wide variety to choose from. Since Collective Arts opened up in Hamilton back in…

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.
