Home for Christmas

Another great holiday season is wrapping up and I might actually be glowing from all the warm sentiments that tend to fill the air around Christmas time. You might know that one of my sisters permanently resides in Madrid, Spain but she was able to visit and spend the holidays with us this year for the first time … More Home for Christmas

Our Blood is Strong

Nothing brings people together like music, and when your cousin is the one performing? The whole family comes through to show love. This past Sunday, Hisbrother (and Savadouchi) performed at The Boat in Kensington Market and it was a spectacle for us all to remember. We rolled at least 30 deep and made sure everyone knew it – … More Our Blood is Strong

Cha Me Chats

Have I mentioned yet that I have 5 sisters?

This time, we held our meet up at a Taiwanese food and bubble tea shop in Markham called … More Cha Me Chats

In all the … More Friendship Time

The Ex

It’s that time of the year, you guys. Summer is officially coming to an end…. but it’s not over just yet. Another one of my annual summer traditions would be paying a visit to the wonderful Canadian National Exhibition (thank you, Toronto). It’s probably due to the fact that my favourite movie growing up was My … More The Ex

Just Visiting

It’s a shame I didn’t get more photos of them but some cousins of ours from New Jersey came to visit and we all got together at my sister, Ramona’s, for an all-day barbecue. They’d gotten caught in some returning-from-the-long-weekend traffic and arrived hours later than we had anticipated. In the meantime, though, we helped ourselves … More Just Visiting

Weekend Islanders

Visited the Toronto Islands with some good friends the other day and we couldn’t get over how much it felt like we’d left the city and gone on vacation somewhere. It was my first time going since I was a little kid and I was reminded how fortunate we are to be living in a city … More Weekend Islanders
