The Best Autumn Movies🍁🎥

There are soooo many Halloween or fall movies and such little time to watch them. When we hear people say they start decorating for Christmas the day after Halloween, we laugh because we start hanging the leaf wreaths and get out the apples and cinnamon candles. Nothing is better than watching a fall movie, snuggled…

Autumn Dates🍁

Because of the work I do, I only get every other weekend off, so weekends that I am off and get to spend time with Adam, are precious. I don’t want to waste time at home doing nothing or waking up and spending 3 hours deciding what to do that day (and then it’s too…

Kingston and 1000 Islands Trip – Day 3

Today was home day! Nothing’s better than sleeping in your own bed. We still had a full day ahead of us, so we packed up around 9am and headed east to Gananoque to cross the border in 1000 Islands. The weather had stayed good throughout the weekend and it didn’t fail us that day. We…

Kingston and 1000 Islands Trip – Day 2

The next day Adam and I woke up bright early (for me anyways) and set off for the Kingston Penitentiary. I have to say that if you do visit Kingston, this is a MUST SEE! Adam even enjoyed himself, which is hard to do when it comes to history and touring. We were ushered into…

Kingston and 1000 Islands Trip – Day 1

Ever since our last trip to Frankenmuth went so well, Adam and I have been trying to plan another weekend getaway. Well it finally happened. Adam and I just came back from a trip to Kingston/1000 Islands and finally we were able to have a weekend without the world crashing and burning around us- well…

Frankenmuth Trip-Day 2

Willkommen back! Adam and I woke pretty early (for me -7am) and went downstairs to breakfast at the hotel. Make your own waffles, bagels, cereal, apple juice- I’m set. Call me crazy or weird but I’ve never made my own waffles or had homemade waffles before but why didn’t someone tell me that they were…

Frankenmuth Trip-Day 1

“I would rather own a little and see the world than own the world and see a little” – Alexander Sattler This post is so long overdue but…Last summer, Adam and I took a trip to Frankenmuth, Michigan for a long weekend. I, being born in Germany (West Germany back then) love everything German (well…

iFly Indoor Skydiving

Adam’s love for Full House and run for as long as I’ve known him. He watches it on Netflix all of the time. There’s one particular episode that he loves and I hate it (not because I don’t like the show) because of what it makes him want to do. He loves the episode of…

Cross Stitch Gifts

“The best gifts come from the heart, not the store.” – Sarah Dessen I don’t know who’s with me on this one, but receiving homemade gifts at Christmas or on birthdays is so much better than store bought. It’s much more intimate than say money or gift card. It rings true of that old time feeling…

Fall Picnic @ Kelso Conservation Area

“Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.”-Carol Bishop Hipps Thanksgiving weekend, Adam and I went to Kelso Conservation area for the Fall into Nature event. It was on for two weeks on the weekend leading up to Thanksgiving. It had wagon rides, archery lessons, hay mountain for kids,…

Happy Halloween!

“When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween.” – Author Unknown I love Halloween almost as much as I love Christmas. To be a kid again and experience it anew would be one of my top Christmas presents if possible. I live in an older neighbourhood…

All Hallow’s Eve Tours

“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.” — Henry Beston.  Fall is upon us and it’s finally time to wear those heavy knits and corduroy pants I picked up the summer. This weekend, Adam and I found a tour at Old Fort…
