It’s great to get out of the routine and do something different.

Merry Christmas

  A fairy forest of delectable moss where last year at the same time, on Christmas Day, we had snow.    Merry Christmas!

Christmas Market on the First Day of Advent

   The tree, the maple syrup, Santa’s clothes ready for his big day, the Christmas tree, and the perfect ambiance at the Distillery District’s Christmas Market in Toronto. Have a beautiful first day of Advent!
