Village at Blue Mountain Christmas

This past week we spent an overnight at the Grand Georgian 
We went to celebrate my Daughter and Granddaughter's birthdays
They share the same day
Yes indeed we planned that! 

The original Village hotel property fashioned after a historic railway lodge, with large welcoming covered entrance and beautiful open lobby with hearth room.

I kept pinching myself
From the view from our lovely lodge-style penthouse apartment
to the festive holiday atmosphere throughout the village
I thought:  Is this really Canada?
It seems so European
Something out of a hit holiday film
So magical and wintry - bursting with old world charm 

What is a Canadian birthday celebration without poutine and fries?

These few images above were shot from our balcony suite!

In the center square people gathered to hear carolers
ride in horse drawn wagon rides
warm their hands by the massive fire pit

The view from our living room directly outside our window
While lounging on the sofa in front of a crackling fireplace
Christmas movies on the flat screen
Food galore!

Do you think we were lucky?
I do!
I am filled with gratitude to be Canadian
and living in such a gorgeous, peaceful country
My thoughts DO NOT forget those around the world who are suffering.

It was a lovely night strolling through the shops and food huts
but my new scarf (Hanukkah inspired) knit by Mom
was definitely needed....
Most appreciated and loved!

Happy Days for certain!

Love to all

Fresh Scoop Chunky Mango Salsa to Die For

This is so simple, fast and healthy!
A fab crowd pleaser!
Here's the recipe:

Grab a measuring cup
Finely chop the fresh vegetables you have on hand
Fill the cup equally with different veggies
Add one cup of cilantro and one cup mango

Stir. Cover. Refrigerate.

That's it!
The natural flavors and juices make this perfection.

Nudnik SHOP
Nudnik TEAM

At Nudnik, our purpose is to give preloved clothing extended life by redefining the concept of ‘new’. Every piece is lovingly cut and sewn together from a variety of gently worn, adult sized tshirts and sweatshirts, in an array of hues, making no two Nudnik garments exactly the same. Almost like a fingerprint! Our modern basics were designed with purpose:
  • A comfortable, sculpted fit to serve as a second skin
  • Raw edges, to avoid the use of virgin materials and to minimize unnecessary sizes, so each piece grows longer as your child does 
  • Minimal tags and/or labels 
  • Infinite colour combinations that offer a fun element of surprise with each delivery, and make each garment as unique as the children wearing them
