Isn’t fall just the BEST!! The chilly air, the golden leaves, the cozy sweaters, and comfy nights in, the red wine.. ohh the wine! Fall is such a relaxing time and much needed after the hustle and bustle of summer, to then settle back into the swing of school. The weather here in Ontario has remained to be stickin’ hot and humid.. so I’ve desperately been craving some cooler temperatures and to finally layer up and soak in all things pumpkin spiced!
Never did I think this day would come, but here I am.. ready for yah! This summer has brought on a lot of changes for us! Packing up and leaving Vancouver was tough, but we quickly found ourselves settled into our new summer home in the Okanagan!! If last minute changes came into play, I think it’s safe to say we were certainly open to staying and extra week.. or two!
Going through a home renovation can be a tough and daunting task no matter how many times you’ve dared to tackle a project. There will always be unexpected surprises.. especially in older homes and sometimes things simply just don’t go as you had planned. This was our first crack at remodelling an older home and the crazy part..
Nothing beats the lazy days of summer..
Slow mornings, limited schedules, snacks all day, and sunny late night dinners. Annddd then good ol’ September 1st rolls around and we all enter PANIC MODE!! September can be one of the most hectic times of year with adjusting to new schedules, school drop-off and pick-up, before and after school programs, you know the drill..
When on the hunt for our new home we really struggled to knock items off our ‘want’ list. We looked at both new and older homes, but seemed to continue to run into a more traditionally laid out home with several smaller rooms like living room, family room, kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room, the list could go on..
