Mornings like these....windows open, the sound of birds chirping, a hot cup of coffee and nowhere to be...time to grab a magazine & turn on some music ♥️

Made a quick run to the store to grab a bottle of wine because...necessary! Lol!! Cheers to the weekend, friends!

Just hit publish on a short “life lately” post! Slowly starting to prep for September which is back to work for this mama! The summer slow down is so good for the soul, but there are a few exciting things lined up for Sept (hinted at them on the blog) so I’m getting the itch to get back to work! Buuuuut, you better believe I’ll be savouring what’s left of our summer vacay!

It’s a work from the dining room kind of day!

Things that I’m currently loving: these absolutely beautiful issues of @dotemagazine 😍, the sun streaming in, that little watercolour that J made a few years ago, the heart card by @kardzkouture that always makes me smile, the fact that I soon get to use my @poppybarley passport holder yet again 🙌🏼, the delicious scent coming from the @vancouvercandleco candle aaaaand coffee....made effortlessly thanks to our new @keurigcanada machine. And that’s just to name a few.

Today’s agenda includes going for a run, tackling the pile of laundry that’s been sitting in a basket at the foot of our bed for who knows how long 🙈, hanging out with my boys at the baseball diamond (if the thunderstorms stay away) and a low key afternoon/evening. I suppose I could get started by going for my run now, but I’m parked on this couch and may very well flip through the latest issue of Style at Home for a while before I put on my running shoes 😬🤷‍♀️😂http://liketk.it/2wY6R #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home

The end of baseball season doesn’t mean the end of baseball in this house! lol. We’re still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that the season is nearly over! One more major tournament and then that’s a wrap. Next up: basketball! http://liketk.it/2wXoq #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home Shop your screenshot of this pic with the LIKEtoKNOW.it app

Our poor phlox (one of my favourite perennials btw) couldn’t handle all of the rain that we got over the past few days. But that’s a good reason to make a beautiful floral arrangement for the back patio! I usually walk around the gardens after my morning workout (today was a short circuit followed by a 5k run), picking weeds and trimming plants. I find it to be a great way to spend time while I’m cooling down. We’re heading back to the baseball diamond today! I can hardly believe that the season is almost over, it’s bittersweet! #everydayibt

A scene from last weekend, when we parked our bikes next to the river and went exploring. I have serious love for this @lochsidecycles beauty and for family bike rides. I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful week!

You know those mornings when you just want to slowly ease into the day, with as little effort as possible (hello summer vacation). Well, I can tell you that @keurigcanada recently launched the K-Select coffee maker that allows you to do just that! A delicious, simple breakfast most certainly calls for a savoury cup (or two) of coffee! I love the idea of corralling all of the coffee accessories on a beautiful tray to compliment the coffee maker’s design. P.S. Gotta admit that today may very well be a “strong brew" coffee kind of day! #keurigcanada #ad #kcup

I have to be completely honest (just as I was with the amazing @sonnetinsurance team who kindly hosted us in their suite at the Jays game earlier this week).....chatting insurance pretty much gives me hives. So I was super curious to learn more about this Canadian company who is making buying home & auto insurance easy and straightforward. That’s not how one would typically describe acquiring insurance, am I right?! But the more I read and the more I research, the more I’m intrigued. This company is truly on to something - being the first of it’s kind in that it’s all done online. This baseball loving family enjoyed the experience of watching the @bluejays game with the Sonnet team, thank you a million times over! We also loved learning how Sonnet is giving back in many ways - including with the Jays Care Community Clubhouse, a double-luxury suite used to host children participating in Jays Care programming! As the notebook says, this truly IS noteworthy!

Enjoying my morning coffee in the living room today since the patio is soaked from the rain. What are your favourite coffee table books? It’s been a while since I’ve purchased one, think I’m due! http://liketk.it/2wH09 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home
