Monday Morning Recap & The Ideal Patio!

Morning readers! It's going to be a gorgeous week in Toronto. With all the good weather I keep thinking about patios, cool drinks, friends and family hanging out and steaks and peppers grilling on the bbq! Instead I'm at work. Haha! 5 more days until the start of the summer (or at least May 24 is the start of my summer). This year I plan on making use of as many cottages as possible (Nana & Grampy's out east and my sister/brother-in-laws up north). It's going to be one of the best summers in a long time!

We have two weeks left in our rental. Over the next few days I need to start packing and take photos of the place for my portfolio. I should have done that a long time ago. Ideally before it's filled with boxes but it's now or never! I will need to purchase a lot of fresh flowers, move the boxes and start snapping. I won't be able to get a professional in but I'll ask a friend to help me with their good camera. Life is hectic!!

I was in Kingston visiting friends and family. It was a bit of a stressful weekend with a tad bit of drama but that's what you get when it's all girls and no men in the picture. All is good with the family. My friends however need to talk. The best advice I can give anyone is to speak up. If something is on your mind, say it. Otherwise it will fester and become a problem. Communication is key to any relationship. I hope they work it out. Other than the drama it was good to see everyone! I love visiting Kingston.

To start our week I thought we could picture ourselves here in this glorious outdoor living room.  Can you imagine this being your own space?  I love the neutral brown whicker and white cushions with hits of dark orange accents.  The rug pulls it all together.  I'm sure some of you look at the white and think 'Oh god it will get so dirty' but fear not.  This is outdoor fabric and an outdoor rug.  Everything can we wiped or washed.  It's ideal!  Looks beautiful and it's easy care.  Now, I just have to figure out where this is so I can visit... or move in.  :) 

Have a great day!! xo
