It's a Holiday (Again Already)!

Today is Family Day in (parts of) Canada. So our little "family" is enjoying a quiet day in after a lovely weekend together. Matt and I had planned on going grocery shopping but didn't realize that the store would be closed today. Oh well, we're making do with the stuff in our fridge and cupboards.

Hope everyone had a Happy Valentine's! Instead of exchanging material gifts this year, Matt and I spent the day on a photo expedition (which began last Fall on Nuit Blanche and Matt called it our "Love Walk") documenting all the apartments we've lived at since we've known each other. I'll have to post those photos on another day, but there's a sneak peek above and below.

We only took photos of the outside, so most of the places look a little sketchy. As the saying goes, "don't judge a book by its cover", but I think our previous digs certainly could label us as "starving artists". We've come a long way, baby!

We also stopped by Fresh Collective to drop off the goods I screen printed for my friends Tara and Kelly.
Tara happened to be in the midst of reorganizing her display and very generously bestowed me with a pair of beautiful cast-iron birds that she no longer had room for.
They are now sitting on a newly reorganized shelf in our kitchen where the microwave used to be. I really love how they look there among the glasses, etc.

The rest of Saturday was spent watching movies, dining on take-out and chocolate cake. A perfect day, really.

Now it's dinner time, so I best help my sweetie with it.

  1. I am totally jealous of your family day. So sweet! And what a cool idea. Look forward to seeing more of your project someday.
