Shit.

oct-2016Every year, for the past 5 years, I’ve remembered the anniversary of my blog.
This year, not the case.
It came and went.
And weeks went by.
And it never crossed my mind.
Am I getting older?
Am I getting less focused?
Am I getting more forgetful?
Am I getting tired?
Yes.
To all of the above.

But you know what?
It’s ok.
It’s really, really ok.

Thanks for reading.
For 6 glorious years.
Thanks….

He brings all faults to destroy, only at Christmas time

For the past couple of months, I’ve been going to Freshii¬†every Friday night. It’s my way of unwinding at the end of the week and I really love this ritual I’ve created for myself. Freshii is a huge chain that started in Toronto and now has over 300 restaurants across 85+ cities in 20 countries and we finally got one in downtown St. Catharines! I couldn’t be more thrilled. They make healthy and affordable vegetarian and eco-friendly foods that you can take on the go.

Wanna know their mantra?

Let’s eat without regret.
Let’s love kale.
Let’s embrace quinoa.
Let’s try new things.
Let’s try unlikely combos.
Let’s eat things that are good.
Let’s eat things that make us feel good.
Let’s eat and sit.
Let’s be good to the Earth.
Let’s let the Earth be good to us.
Let’s Eat. Energize.

Everything about it makes me happy.

Ma Cuisine is by far the BEST restaurant I’ve been to in a long time.
Authentic Dim Sum in the heart of St. Catharines.
I’ve already been twice and I can’t get enough.
Those little bunnies were filled with warm custard…

Lyrical Wednesdays.

Packed my bags
With a whole lot of nothing
Suit cases filled with No Regrets
No Regrets, yea
Lost souls need a whole lot of loving
Cold hearts seek warmer beds
Warmer beds
And I heard a voice saying

No Regrets, Jahkoy

This song will change you.
Another beautiful artist from Toronto.
Seems it will never stop…

Who makes you wanna sing about love?

I do love a holiday cookie. It’s “Christmas in November” at the hotel this weekend. All looks merry, bright and delicious.
