It recently occurred to me I have been doing this little weekly round up for A YEAR. I now find it cute to look back over the post from the year before to compare how my life is changing/growing/moving and all of that. This is what I was up to last year – having an equal amount of fun but with a worse camera apparently. ANYWAY THIS WEEK:
Friends and beer is the best of Monday plans. Ellie (right) is leaving Toronto (boo!) so we have been boozing in her honour recently.
Tuesday was quite the day! It started with a surprise book launch, accompanied by champagne and a mariachi band. The company I do some editorial work for are turning 50 and they have released an amazing book about their travels across the world. “Slow down to see the world” is sort of a motto I can get on board with, although I tend to do things at lightning speed.
On Tuesday evening I had the delight of sampling some of Michelin starred Chef Armand’s new tapas menu for trendy Toronto cafe, Maman. My absolute favourite was the camembert with onions and pastrami marmalade – YUM. (If you live in the 6ix, Maman is located at First Canadian Place, 100 King Street West)
OF COURSE there was a plethora of delicious cocktails and wine on offer too!
A FINAL drink with Ellie – and I had the MOST delicious cider. Cheers!
A day in the studio filming for Inform Overload and Most Amazing Top Ten!
That evening Will and I drove through a snow storm to get to the Blue Mountain for an anniversary ski holiday <3
4 years together and I am not sure which of us deserves a medal…perhaps both! Will and I hit the slopes (one of us more literally than others – I haven’t skied in 3 years so fell over on my ass quite a lot on the first day!)
That evening we had a lovely anniversary dinner at The Mill in Thornberry! Below is the fanciest fried chicken I have ever had the pleasure of eating (buttermilk fried with watercress, coleslaw, blueberry coulis, pumpkin cornbread).
SO whilst Will went off to ski the hardest bits of the resort (the double blacks) I pushed myself to do a few blue runs on my own. This picture is at the top of a blue run with quite a steep bit. I was scared but I did it all by myself!
Later in the day I was actually getting pretty good and I went with Will on a couple of the red/black runs! I fell over the first few times but by the third I was able to ski all the way down without falling at all, so I was very proud of myself!
Today we drove back from the mountain, stopping by Wasaga Beach. The shoreline was frozen, with little bobbing icebergs beyond! In the distance you can see the Blue Mountain!
Here is my Will, snapping away!
SO it has been a GREAT week as you can see! Interestingly, like last year, Will and I once again found our way to some kind of water on our anniversary weekend. No Alpacas this year though!
