New year, new name.

Jan 2nd announcement

I’ve been thinking for awhile about changing my blog name, and I think the beginning of 2015 seems like the right time to take the leap. Right now, everything looks pretty much the same, aside from the name change in the header, but there will be more design changes coming over the next few months. You’ll also notice the web address has changed… we’ve moved to my own domain!

All pages from the old blog should redirect to here, but please update your subscriptions to make sure you don’t miss future posts:

December, in snow.











I took a few photos when we took the dogs for a walk last week, and it just happened to be the first major snowfall of the year! It’s been slowly melting over the last few days, but I’m still holding out hope for a white Christmas.

If you haven’t seen the video I shot during the same walk, you can see it here (and thank you for all of your lovely comments!). And if you want to see more photos from this same conservation area during all sorts of weather and seasons, they’re all here.

Hoping you all had a lovely weekend!

A Winter Walk.

I’ve seen some really lovely videos made by bloggers lately (Liesl’s are some of my favourites), so I decided to give it a try. I took a couple of clips on our walk today, since it seems to be the first significant snowfall of the year! The music in the video is White Winter Hymnal by Birdy.

I’d love your feedback- how do you like seeing videos along with photos?

Also- I’m having my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow morning so I’ll be away for a few days. Hopefully I’ll be back very soon!

November in snow.











When I was visiting my parents last weekend, we got our first proper snowstorm of the year! It’s actually stayed pretty cold since, and there’s been some more snow, so it looks quite lovely outside. We’ve started decorating for Christmas a bit early this year, so the weather seems suitable! I’ll share some pictures of our Christmas decorations and our little tree in a few days.

Go here to see the rest of the photos I’ve taken at this conservation area. There wasn’t snow yet last November!

Do you have snow yet? I’d love to see a photo if you do!

Weekending, extended edition.




I had a few days off from school at the beginning of this week, and I’ve spent the longer weekend visiting my parents. Winter seems to have made its first true appearance, so I spent most of my time indoors with a cup of tea, frantically knitting Christmas gifts… More to come later this week.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying the snow if you got some!







Two orders of business today:

First, happy thanksgiving! (It’s Canadian thanksgiving this weekend, for those who live south of the border and are thoroughly confused). I hope you all have a lovely weekend enjoying the chilly fall weather and eating delicious food. We celebrated a day early since my dad will be away for the rest of the weekend.

Secondly- thank you for sticking around even though I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like lately. The truth is I’m struggling to squeeze blogging in with everything else I’m doing. This space is important to me, though, so I’m going to keep trying to make it work!



G and Henry


Cottage country

Peeking through


A few weeks ago I went to G’s new apartment for a couple of days to help paint her room (a bright yellow!). We also squeezed in a quick visit to G’s cottage with her adorable dog Henry. It was such a beautiful day and Henry is so much fun to play with! It’s been such a strange summer here in terms of weather that I really loved when it was sunny and warm… hopefully a chillier summer isn’t a sign of things to come for this winter. Was this summer colder than usual for all of you as well?
