Before and After Bathroom Alcove

For the last couple of days I've been working on a small makeover in our 'master' bathroom. This alcove was made a little more useful and a lot more exciting by adding an easy to make built in shelf + some white paint (Benjamin Moore's 'Cloud White'). White
After the before and after is finished there is always styling to be done. Styling, I love doing it but it's racked with decision making:) Which one works for you?

Crossing the finish line @ The DQM 2014

Yesterday was The Durham 1/4 Marathon (10.549km) + 1/8 Marathon (5.275km). A great run for a great cause! It was another family affair minus our Emma, who was out with a knee injury:(
Hannah crossed the finish line (1/8 Marathon) first in her age group:)

Another Day at The Beach (#3)

We were back at Cobourg Beach yesterday. Trip #3. The sun was shinning and the water was cold but not as cold as it was on trip #2. We went early and seemed to have to beach to ourselves (for a couple of hours:)

Thank you Hannah (aka Cupcake Girl:)
And this. A bouquet of photos - 50 years worth.
Thank you Emma (aka Enviro Girl:)
And last but not least thank you Marathon Man...I had a lovely birthday♡

This is 50.


Yesterday I was 49. Today I'm 50. I didn't think twice about 30 and wasn't bothered by 40 but 50 has had me thinking a bit? I know that nothing has changed since yesterday but of late I've been noticing some small/big changes...I see more grey where I used to see only black and white (nothing is that simple) and I let more go where I used to hold on (don't sweat the small things). That's about it.
When I told people that I was turning 50 this year I got a lot of "You're going to be 50?! You don't look 50, You look good for your age"... I was never really sure how to respond? Usually I just smiled and said thank you. Starting today I'm going to respond with Gloria Steinem's quote, "This is what 50 looks like."
Today I'm 50. Tomorrow I'll be 50.364. This is 50.

Summer ♥

We spent Friday afternoon in Toronto, pool side, at my parent's condo. Thanks again Margie and Poppa for the refreshing visit. I like what Emma said your place is a happy place. Summer ♥

Summer in a Vase

It really feels like summer when there is a vase full of Hydrangeas, from the garden, in our front hall:)

Another Day at The Beach

Yesterday we were at The Cobourg Beach again. The decision was made months ago that we'd be going to the beach a lot this summer. This is trip #2. The sun was shinning and the water was cold. Ice cold:)
