May 5, 2012


I've lived in Toronto forever and seen Queen's Park a zillion times but always walked around it, not on the actual land. One night Justin and I decided to do just that and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. My breath was taken away by the sight of these blooming trees. I have dreamed of seeing trees just like this blooming in Japan. Imagine my amazement when I read the plaque and discovered they were, in fact, a gift from Japan. It's amazing what you see when you change your route!


Mail call Mail call! I loooooooooooooooooove getting stuff in the mail - especially movies, so it was awesome for these to grace my presence for review :)


Thrift Store Treasures
I just love this photo, had to share it too!

I made another shopping trip and vlog update and I am learning how to hack my video program (which is very out of date) to add photographs with voice overlay. Thanks to Jamie I tried adding annotations in YouTube which is awesome! Too bad you can only add video links but that it still very cool. As you can see by how I am dressed, it is still bloody cold here. Only 7C when I went out on my little shopping trip. Guess we are just skipping spring this year.

Wow, so adventurous Jamie - and I'm the same, I totally never have been ON Queen's Park but went around. Oh, I might have for work been actually there... isn't that odd that I don't know for certain. Harmph. Well, it looks beautiful at night that's for sure!

Love the new video Suzie! And sorry to hear there were not as many awesome items on your most recent trip but thrilled to hear (and see!) that your new pizza stone is perfect! And that mannequin head is FREAKING me out!

My pic is a late add, but it's here now :)

It's true! Queens Park is like hallowed ground or something. Stunning photo Jamie!

Shannon, you see so many movies I have never heard of, it is crazy but so exciting.

Thanks! As you could tell I was shocked the stone fit, LOL, and thrilled.

Yup, it is a crazy photo, just had to share, freaks me out too BTW!
