Catching Up & New Beginnings.

Folks, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Since the last time I posted, my husband and I went on a whirlwind, month long trip around Europe. We traveled across 3 countries, 7 cities/regions, visited museums, wandered through winding city streets, drove on crazy mountainous roads, jumped waves in the atlantic, climbed up and down steep hills and had the time of our lives.

Not long after, we got pregnant and after 10 months of a fairly easy and pleasant pregnancy (minus the last few weeks of just wanting to be done with it), welcomed our little baby boy to the world. Now, we are navigating this surprising, overwhelming, crazy and joy-filled life as new parents to a beautiful (almost) 8 month old.

So you see, a lot has happened. And I would love to go back and tell you all about it sometime. But for now, Happy New Year, everyone! And here’s to catching up… and new beginnings!


House of Windows


, , , , ,


This glass house grew out of a first-date conversation between designer Lilah Horwitz and artist Nick Olson. Less than a year later, the two quit their jobs and embarked on a road trip to collect dozens of windows and then started to build their glass cabin.

Their cabin is a stunning retreat; every window tells a story, every sunset fills the entire space. How amazing and inspiring it is to create a reality of what was once only a dream.

The Daily Prompt

The Daily Prompt is a challenge started by the uber talented Ez at Creature Comforts. A prompt for each day in August to inspire you, whether it be in a photo, written word, video, craft, pin or any other medium you fancy – how awesome! I’ll be trying my best to keep up over on instagram, if you’re interested in taking a peek.

In other news, you might have noticed that this blog has been sort of inactive (to say the least) for quite some time now. You know how sometimes, the longer you leave something, the harder it is to get back into it? Well, it might have taken a long while, but I am slowly making my way back.

Vacation Snippets: Southampton


, , , , , , , , , ,


We took a mini trip up to Southampton, Ontario to meet up with our lovely friends for some winter R&R. We stayed at the lovely Chantry Breezes B&B (awesome rooms & breakfast), played lots of board games (isn’t it funny how monopoly starts out so great then gets so depressing?) and bananagram (so good!), went out for a lovely little walks down to the beach and on the boardwalk at MacGregor Point and had an awesome time just catching up with old friends.

p/s Snowy beaches always remind me of Eternal Sunshine, is that just me?

Winter Wonderland

This Christmas, we embarked on an epic trip back to Canada to surprise the boy’s parents. They had no clue we were going home and the look on their faces when they opened the door late on Christmas eve to find us on the doorstep was absolutely priceless. I still can’t believe we managed to keep it all under wraps for three whole months (thanks in part to J who was doing some serious reconnaissance over in Canada for us). We had a great trip – spent a lot of our time relaxing with family and friends and enjoying the winter wonderland (snowboarding, tubing, snowmen, winter walks)… Amazing!UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitled

Lovelies, I’m back!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy Happy New Year!

Between holiday celebrations in Singapore, our surprise trip back to Canada, a ton of baking for my little bakeshop and everything else, this past month has really been a crazy whirlwind. Thankfully, I am starting to get back into the groove of things here and hope to get things up and running on this little blog soon.

For now, the tiniest of weekend snippets…. the first of 2013. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Weekend Snippets

This weekend was a whirlwind of activity – baking up festive orders for friends & family (complete with mini legs-up-the-wall breaks), baking a wedding cake, helping my brother out with wedding details, the wedding day preparations (complete with squeezing into a car packed to the brim), a beautiful wedding and to top it all off, a Christmas meal with lovely girlfriends. Now getting ready for the last push through this week – between baking up orders, yoga classes to teach, getting presents ready, Christmas dinner and what not, I think I’m going to need all the luck I can get.
