We’re Moving!

I have a huge announcement to share with you all, ┬áJT and I are moving… TO ENGLAND!

It’s been a really hard decision as it means leaving our jobs and our families for the next 12 months, but it is an opportunity we just can’t pass up. I am kind of still in shock that this is actually happening!

I hope you will continue to follow us along on our journey abroad. We will be living about 45 minutes north of London, so you can expect lots of fashion, food & beverage, and of course travel posts to come.

TGIF Cocktails // Mojitos

I just love a good Mojito, and after the success with the Cobblestone Kitchen’s Lime Margarita mix, I thought I would give this one a try. While the drink was definitely tasty, it didn’t have the same spark and well… freshness of making a real mojito. Don’t worry- I was able to drink through my disappointment and finish the entire mixture with some help from friends. It was just a little too sweet, and not quite minty enough. I guess my next challenge will be to put my own Mojito making skills and see if I can make a better one from scratch.


This weekend we are going to visit some friends in Ottawa, and go to an annual music festival called BluesFest. It should be a fun day of hot sun and cold beers and friends we haven’t seen in a long time, all of which I am very much looking forward to. Hope you all have a great weekend.
