February.  Two holidays this month…one is a bit of a contrived – from the government (Family Day – we need a holiday to celebrate that we have a family?  What about those that don’t have one?  I always thought Remembrance Day would have been a better choice for a Stat holiday, but that’s really a topic for another blog).  The other one is almost a touchy one, from what I’ve found talking with people.  Valentine’s Day.  How do you feel?  Is it a good excuse to give your spouse or loved one an extra special gift, or is it a holiday that’s been hijacked by Hallmark?  (more…)

My backyard!

My backyard!

This is my first post in 2014, and for some reason I really want to say something profound. Something with a bit of weight. Something that might give you insight to who I am. At the same time, I don’t want to deviate from the general theme of my blog.

So here goes… (more…)

ScaleOk, so how many of you actually made New Years resolutions?  Do people still do that?  Honestly, I’m not sure, but if they do, I have no doubt that going to the gym would be in a top contender for resolution spots.  If that’s the case, let me help you! (more…)

Simcoe Panorama LightsSo once again, the parks in Simcoe Ontario have been lit up with the wonders of Christmas lights and panorama displays. (more…)

Ok, so we may not all fit into the “born to be wild” category, but for a few days out of the year you sure can participate!  Yesterday was another one of the incredible gatherings that Port Dover has become famous for.  Friday the 13th, one of the biggest biker rally’s in Canada. (more…)

parent bazaarOk, so it’s pretty apparent that Simcoe itself has a lot of events that go on throughout the year.  What’s kind of cool about it, is that there are different events geared at nearly each demographic at some point.  Coming up this week is something that’s geared towards parents!  How cool is that!

my daughter enjoying a day at the office with me…

Geez, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve made a post here.  I’ve been slacking.  But with this incredible weather, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the beach, so I haven’t had the time to write!  Maybe everyone else should follow suit 😉 (more…)

Just one of the places you need to find.

Just one of the places you need to find.

No seriously. Get Lost.

If you’re from Norfolk County and you haven’t already done this, you’re missing out! Truly, we’re in one of the most beautiful counties that Ontario has to offer, and I beg that you give this a try… (more…)

golferCan you smell that?  It’s Spring coming on!  And that means there are a lot of people getting excited about one thing…golf!  One of the things that makes Norfolk County incredible is the golf courses we have here. I have clients that move in from out of the area ask me about it fairly often…how many courses we have, where they are, and which ones are the best to play.  We have some simply stunning courses, and ones to cater to every skill level.  I love to golf, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a great golfer. I’m fair, at best. But because I’m expected to be an expert on my area, I felt that I really should know every course (it was a great excuse to play around a lot last summer!), and from that, I’ve chosen to write about my favourite 3.  Maybe you’ll agree with me, maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll even get out to try something new out! (more…)
