My dad moved into a beautiful home outside of the city a couple of years ago. It’s a big home, that can fit our family of five + significant others – surrounded by towering trees, wildlife and the Muskoka river.  When I look up at night, I see constellations, and the only beam of light shining down on me is that which comes from the moon.  

Compared to life in my twenties, i’m living at a much calmer pace – regardless of how slow I go, life in Toronto can be exhausting at times.  Dad’s house is a very serene and peaceful place where I can be outside surrounded by nature or curled up on the couch reading or catching an afternoon nap.

It’s nice visiting with the understanding there is no agenda and there are zero expectations – I can do as much or as little activity as I please.  Personally I feel all visits and getaways should be the same – relaxed and easy.

Before heading back to the city I made a stopped at my old camp Mini-Yo-We to get on that spiritually enlighten level.  It was so warm today so I was able to walk most of the empty property – reminiscing about my childhood – without freezing.

As you can see i’m dressed comfortably in my signature weekend uniform.  Sexy Stretch Ankle Leggings purchased last summer at the Express Field Trip pop-up.  These tights have really lasted through hangouts, work outs and washes.  My Ultra Light Down Jacket from Uniqlo is my main jacket that I mostly wear on it’s own – but it also works as an extra layer of warmth under my leather jacket, or my winter heavy.  My Kodiak Acadia Shearling Short Boots keep my feet warm and dry.  I love that they don’t look like winter boots – which means I can wear them during my commute and keep them all day at work without looking sloppy.
