Little Bits of Sunshine Part 2

It's hard to believe that my husband and I are already coming up to our one year wedding anniversary. To celebrate, we've decided to spend the weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake. My hope is that it's going to be a romantic, quiet little getaway where we can just enjoy each other and look back on this incredible past year of marriage.

We were pretty torn when it came to choosing a place to stay. We've done the bed and breakfast thing once before when we were in Stratford and, although it had it's own charm to it, we missed the comfort of a more commercial hotel. We ended up booking a place called The Orchid Inn. What I love about it is that it seems to be a perfect blend between a B&B and hotel. It has the charm and personable experience of a bed and breakfast, but the privacy of a hotel. And it includes a home-cooked breakfast in the morning!

Lions and Tigers and Bears. Oh My!

I've had this fascination with theatre ever since high school when I was forced to take a drama class as part of the curriculum. Every part of me wanted to run away from that class screaming - but I hung in there.

Little Bits of Sunshine: Part 1

We've got quite the summer mapped out! The hubs and I are taking full advantage of being newly married and free from a lot of heavy responsibility by going on little weekend adventures a couple times each month. First up? Montreal!

For as long as I can remember, I've always had this deep desire to experience what the world has to offer. I've longed to travel overseas, immerse myself in new cultures, and just experience life in ways that I'm not accustomed to. Despite these longings and desires, I still find myself planted in one place, investing in my career, rooting myself in the local church, and building a home and life here with my husband. I know there's nothing wrong with that - it's just so far from what I envisioned for my life at this point.
