Downtown Schenectady Adventure

Downtown Schenectady Adventure

Last weekend, Aaron and I decided to jump the gun on the beginning of summer and wanted to take a little weekend road trip. I found a Groupon deal for the Parker Inn + Suites in Schenectady, NY and my first reaction was, “Schenectady? What the heck kinda name is that?” (it’s pronounced Ske-nek-ted-y, in case y’all were wondering) After thoroughly touring the town in Google Maps, I thought it looked quaint and decided to go for it. Upstate New York is so beautiful and this is the perfect time of year to see…

Last weekend, Aaron and I took a little road trip out to Schenectady, NY. What’s in Schenectady, you ask? We wondered that, too. We found out about this little town because of a hotel deal offered on Groupon. It turns out, the drive there from Ontario is absolutely breathtaking and the town itself is historic, quaint and beautiful. On our first full day there, Saturday, it was a beautiful day. It was not too hot, not too cold – it was juuuuuuuust right. It felt like the perfect day to be outside…

See, Aaron and I often love to veer off the main path so we can challenge ourselves a bit more and see more interesting...Read more
Beach Bike Ride

Beach Bike Ride

Canadian spring continues to throw surprises our way. Case in point: one week there was a snow storm and a mere week later, temps got high enough for me to comfortably wear this outfit and bike around barefoot. This isn’t normal, Canada! I’m not complaining, though, because I finally got to take Daisy Chain (we’ll save the story behind my bike’s name for another time) out for a spin after forcing her into storage after our Florida trip. When I bought my bike, I chose it almost solely based on the fact that the pedals are barefoot-friendly. Priorities, people. Seriously

Canadian Spring (Or Not) Adventure

Canadian Spring (Or Not) Adventure

This perfectly sums up Southern Ontario this year. One day, we’re merrily rolling into spring and the next, we’re getting snowfall warnings. All that prancing around in my closet, trying on sundresses and crop tops quickly proved to be premature. I swear this happens every year – all memories of the previous year’s up-and-down weather go up in smoke and I naively think that spring will bring exactly what the storybooks told us it would. Seriously. I daydreamed about coming back from a beautiful February in Florida, blissfully having missed the most brutal…
