Weekend in the City - Spring

The weather has certainly been amazing here in Toronto and the warmth and sunshine is really beckoning me to get outside. Here are some of the things I'm considering this weekend...
According to the park's website - the original prediction of full bloom between April 23 and 26 has now extended through the weekend of April 29 and 30. It really is a sight to behold, and unlike most things we can access on demand - if you miss this year's bloom - you will need to wait another year to experience this magical show from mother nature. More details, maps and driving/TTC directions can be found HERE.

Monthly Bits & Bites ~ March 2017

While it was actually on February 28th, (pancake Tuesday), my search for pancakes took me to
 this delightful place called Old School Toronto

If you follow along on Instagram, you will recognize the name Trattoria Nervosa, it's one of my fav places to eat. I've wrote about my introduction to this great eatery here, In March I had the opportunity to catch up with a business colleague/friend and enjoy a light lunch.
What better way to enjoy the evening on International Women's Day, than with a group of fabulous women who are taking their personal financial security seriously and thanks to RBC Global Asset Management we learned it's never too late to get started.
Tutti Pizza!! was delighted to discover the Yorkville location is re-opened!
Attended a talk at Verity hosted by my friend Susan Sommers, on the importance of fitness. She did her first marathon in her 60s!! Recently launched her second book Love Your Body, Embrace Your Life and though I've heard her speak many times, each time I walk away inspired and motivated. 
 I have been wanting to invest in a Nespresso machine for some time ...
and on a recent trip to Canadian Tire found it on sale!! in red ...  
The flower shops on Avenue Road - always offer up some beautiful blooms, year round to brighten your day! Though I shop all ... I often find myself popping in to Jong Young Flower Market, where one weekend in March I discovered this amazing commercial mum!! 
Strolling through the Loblaws close to my home, and discovering they are not only one of the locations authorized to sell wine - but that they stock my fav bubbly!! Now that made my March!

What made your March?
