The light, is that you?

Standard

It has been a longtime coming but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have finally put our house up for sale and I am starting to feel settled in our new digs – I knew I was starting to get a handle on things when the other day when I was stuck in traffic and I actually ventured off the very safe main road routes and successfully found a side road! Ya that happened!! I know, it’s not really a big deal but it kind of is.

We went home to Winnipeg last week and it was so great seeing all my friends, feeling completely loved and the sound of silence was like tiny little unicorn kisses all over my ears!

Big Red (my car) still isn’t great but she will go into the shop next week and perhaps we can fix her up so she will last just a couple months longer!

Let me give you a tiny recap of our incredible trip to Grand Cayman – it was FANTASTIC! IMG_3361The water, the island and the people, the food were all really great! We stayed with our cousins and had just the best time.

Farewell Cayman, see you soon!

One thing I still cannot process is how the island doesn’t have a recycling program and how the residential areas were littered with garbage – it’s beautiful island which needs to protected! Overall, we would 1,000,000% go back in a heartbeat!

Fun:

This is my favourite time of year when it comes to music because everyone is releasing what they hope will be the hit song of summer 2016. If I had to guess this song has a shot, it makes me dance, happy and well…it made my hands clap! You will remember Fitz and The Tantrums from their song “The Walker”. Take a listen to “HandClap”

Fitness:

Well it’s official, I have spring fever so that means I want to work out 24/7 – so this week I tried Orange Theory and let me tell ya, it was HARD!! Like heart racing, puke bubbling, sweating through your underwear hard! Do it, try it, love it! I am not going to bore you with all the details of the one hour class, just know, wear light weight clothing and get ready to walk/run/row/lift your way to a sweaty finish!

Food:

A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a super hipster butcher who specializes in artisan sausages …I warned you, it’s mega hipster so of course I LOVE IT! He makes sausages infused with fennel and champagne and other exotic mixtures, but the one that blew me away was a grass-fed pork sausage with piri-piri…MAMA-MIA where have you been my whole life. I will be putting piri-piri on everything!

Fashion:

shoeI am obsessed with Oxfords and Loafers right now – like, OBSESSED!! Super comfy, practical and stylish! I spent all my “extra” cash last month on these bad boys from Aldo and have not regretted it for one second! I wear them with ankle length capri pants and jeans!

On a side note: it would appear every store this spring season is carrying something in a beautiful crisp white – I so desperately want to partake but 2 naughty border collies with muddy paws have other fashion plans for me this spring!

Be Great!

    Hi Fiona, This is lovely! You seem to be in a happy place now compared to when you first wrote the first letter. This is good! You are at peace with where you are. When I first lived in Toronto, I had a difficult time adjusting to the people who lived there. It was the 70’s and a girl coming from New York to a permanent move to Canada, made me very homesick. Eventually I got use to people and their laid back attitudes. Toronto is different today then it was then.

    The Cayman Islands is beautiful and yes, they do need to do a recycled program there, but one day they will.

    Penny loafers are my favourite too! Saddle shoes are my favourite as well, but are hard to find. By the way, what is piri-piri? I will have to google that.

    I guess when you do come to Winnipeg, people are so glad to see you. Fiona you are a pretty special person to know. Enjoy Toronto and what it has to offer!
