this past weekend the family and I met with j's parents at the bruce mill conservation area to check out the maple syrup festival and we were not the only ones taking advantage of the gorgeous weather. we had to wait in line to just park.

we walked the trails, sampled maple syrup that was being boiled over an open fire and the kids partook in some of the activities they had.  it's always nice to take a short drive away from the busy city and also to spend time with family.

each day the renos of our building is taking shape which is making j and I really happy and I remember being told as a kid constantly that if you work hard it pays off and the result of this reno shows us the result of all those long hours and I can't wait to enjoy the new spaces and we wouldn't be here without all of you who believed in us and supported us through the years - thank you so much !!


  1. i can't wait to see the progress . Beautiful photographs.

  2. We made maple syrup this year for the first time! Quite easy and very rewarding. Now we are eating maple everything: maple lattes, maple scones, maple syrup on our morning yogurt :-)

    Can't wait to see the photos of the finished new space!
