I am always in awe of how beautiful Ontario is and I often wish I had more opportunities to get away from Toronto in the summer. When Shana & Dan invited me to spend the evening on their parents farm outside of the city, I jumped at the opportunity to leave Toronto behind, even for a brief moment.

The farm was idyllic. So peaceful and quiet and their beloved dog Logan was able to run free in the fields. Shana & Dan felt right at home on the farm, their adoration and love for each other is apparent in the photos.

Everything about this evening is the recipe for a perfect summer. This sweet couple basking in golden light, lush green fields, lots of laughter, horses in a field, and baby goats.

(omigosh those baby goats!!)

We had so much fun strawberry picking last year with Eloise that I couldn't wait to do it again this year. But I forgot that toddlers are fickle and never remain the same. She did not like it this year and wanted to leave almost immediately. A few factors may have changed her mood towards picking strawberries this year though. By the time we arrived, it was already noon and it was hot. Strawberry season opened late this year because of the harsh winter we had and they weren't as sweet to Eloise.

So we picked flowers for her grandmother instead. I'm glad she found something else she liked doing!

We escaped the city and ventured to the Toronto Islands for the evening. Summer evenings are magical but it is definitely made more magical on the Islands.

I have fallen in love with these two, this island, this summer.

I can't wait for Kiyomi & Paul's summer wedding in a few weeks.

What Kids Say

writing down what kids say

Ellie has been talking up a storm ever since she was one and a half years old. At first, it was two word sentences, then three, then five! Now I have full conversations with her and she always makes me laugh. She says the funniest things and I don't want to forget (because I know I will!), so I started writing some of her funny phrases down in this little notebook. Some things she says regularly, but other sentences only happened once.

These are some of my favourites, I am hoping for lots more as she gets older!

"I like balance"

"underwear has a ponytail"

"sunny day is broken" - when referring to a cloudy day


Ellie is now a little bit over 2 years old. I have been enjoying this age a lot. There are no terrible twos here! I think we have passed some harder stages, and I know there will be harder ones to come. But for now, I'm really enjoying my little 2 year old!
