  • Little Nicky's and Summer Walks

    To me, the idea of a perfect day off is one where I get to spend it with people I care about, exploring new places and preferably eating delicious treats. This particular day was no different. I finally had a chance to go to Little Nicky's, and I'm wishing I hadn't waited so long to make the effort! Chad, Katie and I met one Friday afternoon for a little conversation and coffee before Katie headed back to work. They are known for their fresh made-to-order mini doughnuts, and I didn't hesitate to get 1/2 dozen to go when we left. I have a soft spot for fresh doughtnuts and Little Nicky's did not let me down. 









    Chad and I then ventured into the beaches for an afternoon of exploring in the summer sun. 



    We stopped for some quick sustinance in the form of delicious sandwiches from Juice & Java Cafe and Catering. I could really go for one of those right about now! 










     

    Our day of food did not end there - we then went to my house and bbq'd some amazing burgers with sauteed kale and mashed potatoes on the side. Another perfect summer day.

  • Cuba - Part One


    Just as the mornings are growing chilly and frosty, I decided it was a perfect time to look through and post some memories from my Cuba trip.
    This part one post will be mainly photos around the resort we stayed at in Varadero (apologies for all the nature and still life captures!). After a couple of days we ventured out of the resort and I will feature those shots in future posts! Please do come back and look:)





    Our first few days in Varadero were during the tail end of hurricane Issac. Thankfully, we only had to endure a few rainshowers and some cloudy skies. It was still extremely hot, the drinks were flowing and the water was warm so we were still able to have a great time before the sun joined us.




    My adorable Mom and Sister!





    The man who taught me so much of what I know.








    Our first (much needed) drink after our 6am flight.



    Honestly? I wasn't a fan, but it was neat to try a piña colada while in Cuba.









    It was a pretty cloudy day at the beach when we arrived. But it's okay, we were in a warm, gorgeous place.





    The sun peeked out a little!





    We saw a million cute kitties (and puppies). Don't worry, in the upcoming post there are even more to be seen.






    Thanks for looking! Stay tuned for many more Cuba photos and stories to come.

  • Aberfoyle Antique Market



    Back in June, a few of us ladies took off for the day to Aberfoyle to go to their amazing antique market. It was unlike anything I'd seen before - it was huge, hundreds of different vendors and tables. If I had a truck with me (or a thicker wallet) I could've easily bought hundreds of things. We had the best day hunting around and looking at all the cute and quirky stuff for sale. We stopped for a quick lunch inside their adorable, rustic cafe to refuel and then continued on. It was pouring off and on all day and of course, the moment we got back on the highway it was a downpour - lucky us! I can't wait until next summer when we can go back.






    It's such a cute place!





    You'll all be happy to know that I did NOT add another camera to my collection that day - I need to start using what I have before I buy more.. or so I've been told. (It's an addiction)

    I look like a giant!




    There was some pretty classy stuff there! Brynn had to know what they felt like, of course.




    We met some very cute puppies.





    I'm really regretting not buying that bunny!


    A car-seat!

    This is something I SERIOUSLY regret not buying. How amazing would this look in my kitchen?!

















    And then it poured on the way home...

  • Osheaga iPhone Recap



    Last weekend the boyfriend and I went to Montreal for the wonderful Osheaga festival! I haven't been to Montreal since I was a teen, and I'd honestly forgotten what it was like. But, this past weekend, I fell in love. The people are friendly, the apartments are quaint, the food is delicious (but mainly hard for me to stomach), and the city is just wonderful to wander around in.  Since I took most of my photos there on film, I haven't had a chance to have them all processed yet. So I figured I'd do a little iPhone update post. Those of you who follow me on Instagram (@withcamera) may have already seen a few of these.. If you haven't followed me on there yet, please do!



    The long early morning drive there.



    Our very cute Airbnb apartment for the weekend.



    The little patio set at the apartment.



    Late night wine on the patio!




    The very informative metro signs.



    Thunderstorms rolling in at the park.



    A very tasty popsicle on a very hot day.

    We wandered around Old Montreal for a few hours before the festival on Sunday.





    Interrupted this bird taking a nice little bath.




    Oh, there's Chad!

    Overall, it was an amazing weekend. I can't wait to plan my next trip (move?) to Montreal!
