Friday Faves: Yay it’s May


Good morning Loves and Happy May 1st.  I hope it’s nice and warm where you are.  Up here in Montreal it’s not as warm as I’d like it to be the first day in May, but at least it’s not snowing.  I found some great posts for you today so sit back, grab your fave beverage and enjoy!

Have a great weekend.

Friday Faves: Taking the Train Home


Happy Friday Loves.  It’s Friday and as you read this I’m on my way home from a business trip – and I’m taking the train.  Last time I took this exact same trip I flew and trust me when I say I was less than impressed.  So earlier this week I headed off on a 4.5 hour train trip and now I’m doing the same.

Taking the train is not that much of a difference in time than flying and it’s a lot cheaper.  I like the hop on/hop off convenience of the train and I absolutely despise waiting in line at airports.  So there you have it, I’m on a nice relaxing train trip – actually I’m probably asleep.

I hope you have a great weekend.  Enjoy these good reads from our friends.

Friday Faves: Dear Spring, where are you?


Happy Friday!  As you read this I’m on my way home from another fantastic work trip.  I’m telling you I have a dream job.  This weekend BF and I are hoping the weather cooperates and we can get outside to explore our neighborhood.

We moved in October and have yet to find local amenities such as a bakery and a florist.  We did find a good Chinese takeout restaurant and a pharmacy, but we’d like to get to know our neighborhood a little bit better.  After all isn’t that one of the best things about moving?  New beginnings and new places to explore?!

Last Saturday we woke up to a snow storm, so fingers crossed that tomorrow morning we wake up to sunshine.

Have a great weekend. Enjoy these posts from our friends:
