Muskoka Getaway Feature Image for Couples Resort

Our Romantic Getaway

If you are thinking about places to go this summer with your significant other, please allow me to suggest one of my favourite parts of the Muskoka Region in Whitney, Ontario:   The Scenario We had a crazy insane summer. My husband had two jobs, I had two jobs, both our kids had a job each. Very different schedules and hours with no public transportation and only two cars that both ended up dying half way through the summer. To say it was stressful would be a terrific understatement. I love my husband and having been with him for 24 years…

It’s Worth the Drive to Watertown

Watertown, NY Before you start your engines to head down to Niagara, New York, consider going the other way first. That's what my daughter and I did recently when we were hunting down awesome deals on clothing, shoes, gift items and also looking for some exploring. I can only imagine how amazing it would be in Watertown, NY for their Black Friday sales.  We live on the eastern edge of the GTA so it's about equal distance for us to Niagara or Watertown. But here is one of the best parts of going to Watertown - it took us 3 minutes to get…

Cha-cha-cha-changes and the Green Acres Inn

I have been writing a series about my son living at university in another town. I like to explore his temporary home whenever we go to visit him either for pick ups or drop offs. It is a town our family has grown to love. The series is called #QueensUmum and it is about our adventures in Kingston, Ontario.  I would never have found this lovely place if not for the fact that my son is attending Queen's University. It's limestone buildings are rich with the history of Britain and Canada.  We've stayed in many fine hotels since the summer of 2015. Recently, my…
