All You Need is Love

What I Wore:
Dress: Made by me
Cardi: Smart Set
Leggings: Suzy Shier
Belt: Reitman's
Boots: Payless (6-ish years ago)

Today was a relatively successful day for me. I finished my Christmas shopping, got my mum's birthday present (she's a Christmas Eve baby), helped my dad find a present for her, and wrapped all of my presents except Colin's because it is still being constructed. Usually I don't start all of this shopping stuff until the week of Christmas, so I am please with how on the ball I have been this year. I feel like I am being a broken record talking about Christmas in every post for the past two weeks, but it has been a little all consuming. I really enjoying making and buying presents for people so it kind of takes over my life when I finally get into the spirit. Putting a lot of thought into a gift makes it meas that much more in my opinion,

This evening I hung out with a friend that I have known since kindergarten. We went down to the James St. N Art Crawl with a friend of hers and Colin. It was good night of walking around, learning about refugee healthcare in Canada, looking at art, meeting new people and just generally having a good time. I am not sure how to broach this subject, or how appropriate it is but here goes. In light of the events that have happened today, and in the last little while, it's nights like this that make me feel so lucky to have what I have and be in the situation that I am in. My heart goes out to the families that have been affected by recent tragedy, and they are definitely in my thoughts. I hope with all I have to give that they have support and are surrounded by love because the holidays are rough as it is for some, and I can't imagine having to go through what they have experienced. Having loved ones to support you makes a world of difference, and I am feeling so lucky that I have the ones that I do. 


  1. Such an amazing dress!

    And yes, so many of us are so lucky and lucky that we don't even have to think about it most of the time.

    1. Thanks so much!

      That is really well put. We are so lucky to not haver to worry. We definitely complain too much, and don't spend enouight time being thankful as a society in general.
