and in the end....

it has arrived; the dreaded but bittersweet last weekend before labour day. this is the weekend when you realize that summer is not quite done, but be ready because autumn is at your doorstep.  its supposed to be a gorgeous day in Toronto, so get out and enjoy it as much as you can. Have a great saturday!

as promised, the sunset from Centre Island.......

just be

whoever said plaid isn't cool clearly hasn't met my better half. he can rock the ugliest plaid I've ever seen and not even care what people think. and that's why it's cool.

just be.... you

after the storm

whatever troubles you may have, always remember to fight through the storm. The sun will come out tomorrow

on top of the world

saw some old friends this past weekend, one of whom is going to NYC in a few days. jealous. when asked what to do while there, my other half and I blurted "Top of the Rock" without hesitation. I could literally sit there all day. no matter the weather.

sunday morning

after a week of vacation, you'd think I'd want to get outside and make the most of my last day. I'd rather sleep all day long and have a good cup of coffee.

Happy Sunday! :)

just a short ferry ride away.....

its been years, but I finally made it out to Centre Island. and only for one purpose; to take some shots of the sun setting over the skyline of Toronto. It was absolutely beautiful.  I got some great shots of the sun saying goodbye to our gorgeous city, but I will save those for a rainy day. For now, I leave you with what I saw during my short visit to and from the island.
