Last weekend, my lovelies and I headed to Haliburton County for some much needed r&r.
Even though it was just 2 nights and 3 days - it was still good to unwind. 
We were so happy that the forecast was wrong and we got some sunshine!
Paddle boating, canoeing and jumping on trampoline. 
And in between we made proper meals. 

This just sums up the weekend we had. Dons just having way too much fun.

The first time I was on the plane I was 3 months old.
And ever since then...traveling just became part of me. 
Having moved a lot when I was young. Try 5 cities by the age of 18. 
Being in transit became second nature. 
So, it's no wonder that every chance I get to get out of the city. I do it.
What's on the docket this year? 
I went to Vancouver and New York in a 2-week span in May due to weddings. 
And now... it's cottage time this weekend. 
I need some r&r away from the city - I can't wait to reconnect with mother nature!

Happy Weekend!

Britain's Got Talent is probably the only talent show that I watch from beginning to end. 
And this season is no exception. In fact, this year might be the best pool of talents.
You just didn't know who to cheer for. So, this brings me to Jordan O'Keefe.
He made it to the finals but didn't place the top 3 
but I'm sure he'll be signing with a record company soon. 
His rendition of Whitney Houston "I Will Always Love You" just gave me all the warm fuzzies.

Have a good listen.

During the Victoria Day weekend, I got on the plane and headed to Vancouver for my dearest friends' wedding Jen & Jason. It was fun to see my old friends and getting reacquainted with the city where I went to high school. It rained a lot (quite typical in May) but for one day I was able to whip out my camera and take some shots. 

Thank you for the four amazing days, Vancouver.

Last year, Sid contacted me to capture their proposal and a year later they said their "I do". And I was glad to be part of it again even if it was just their civil ceremony. But I'm glad to have seen the ceremony since I won't be able to make the trek to India for official wedding ceremony later this year. 

Happy Monday.

Happy Friday! 
Here's some lovey-dovey snapshots. 
I had the honour to attend and capture my cousin, Doreen saying I do to Richard. 
It's always great when you know both the bride and groom and it's like a big reunion with everyone not just family members but family friends who I haven't seen in over a decade.

I am currently obsessed with this song.
It's the only second song that makes me dance along while listening to it in my iPod. 
I even got Dons to sing along with it.

Happy Thursday afternoon!

Life has been a whirlwind the past month. 
At times, I wasn't sure which city I was in, much less the day of the week. 
But after finally being back in the city for a whole week. 
It's all coming back to me. 

I started May with me accepting a job offer. 
I haven't really had much time to digest this yet but so far it's good.
The people are great and the best part is amazing the team dynamic and office culture. 

During this time also had me play tour guide for my visiting relatives. 
So I was balancing work and being a good hostess.

During the Victoria Day long weekend, I flew to Vancouver for my friends' wedding.
It was one epic 4-day trip. Barely slept a wink.
And after arriving in Toronto, 48hrs later I was off to NYC for my cousin's wedding.
Photos will coming soon.

And now it's June. I'm just excited to do catch-ups and quiet times.

Until next time...
