I can’t recall for certain whether or not I shared with all of you what happened to my parent’s dog, Finn, a while back, but I feel as though I probably did. Just in case, Finn was seriously injured on our farm, and she stayed with Blaine and me for two months while she recuperated. … More Welcome home, Lenny
This past Thursday, my mom, dad, grandmother, Blaine and myself ventured out to the Sanderson Centre in Brantford to see The Irish Rovers play. My grandmother (whom in Hungarian I refer to as Nagymama, Nagy for short) loves Irish music, and despite her and my Nagypapa’s strong Hungarian roots, the two of them saw The … More Are you familiar with The Irish Rovers?
Many moons ago, I got my first off-farm job working at Pita Pit in West Brantford. I say off-farm job because my parents’ rule when my sister and I were younger was that if we wanted to work full-time on the farm, that was fine and dandy, but not without getting a job off the … More Have you been to BarBurrito in West Brantford?
Chinese food really is a comfort food classic. It checks all of the boxes in terms of what a comfort meal should consist of, as well as what the consumer experiences whilst eating it, and just about all of us can agree that a solid Chinese food dinner hits the hunger spot. There is a … More Have you been to The Oriental in Brantford?
Earlier this week, I met up with a friend of mine to go for dinner. We originally wanted to have sushi, but after calling two locations in Brantford and not having much luck, we figured we were going to have to get a rain check on the sushi and settle for something else in the … More If you like sushi, read this
This past Saturday, Blaine and I were trying to determine a place to visit to grab some dinner. We didn’t really want to drive into Brantford, nor did we want to hit up a spot we go to regularly. Blaine suggested the Drumbo Pub, and since neither of us had dined there, we figured it … More Here’s why you should visit Drumbo Pub
I am not someone who frequently visits any type of salon, studio, or beauty-related business. I never have, and probably never will, simply because the world of aesthetics and all of its services have never really appealed to me. Working on a farm isn’t exactly a profession in which beauty and my appearance are my … More Here’s why you need to visit Blush Medical Aesthetics
Blaine and I ventured out to SWEET bakery in Brantford this past weekend regarding our wedding cake. I’ve been to this bakery before, but it was quite a few years ago. When I was chatting with my sister and maid of honour about potential local bakeries to check out for our wedding, she recommended SWEET … More Craving something sweet?

This past weekend, Blaine and I ventured out to Moore’s in Brantford to pick out what he and his groomsmen will be sporting for our wedding.

A couple of weeks ago, I received a long-awaited phone call from Bridal Boutique in Brantford that my dress had arrived. I say this phone call was long awaited because I purchased my wedding dress from Bridal Boutique back in February; the dress I picked in particular is made by Madi Lane, an Australian designer, … More Need a wedding dress?

A few night ago, my sister and I met up with our cousins for dinner in Hamilton, Ontario. We often meet in Hamilton because it’s sort of the halfway point between us and them, and also because Hamilton has a far better selection of restaurants than Brantford does. My cousin picked out a place called … More Have you been to Electric Diner?
If you’re a resident of Brant or Norfolk County, there is a chance you have heard of Robby’s Pizza & Wings, either their Brantford or Burford location. And, if you haven’t, I’m reluctant to tell you that you have one hundred per cent been missing out in terms of pizza consumption, as well as wings … More Yes, you need to try Robby’s Pizza & Wings
It’s a day so many of us dream of; going shopping for a beautiful wedding dress. Browsing the selection in a given store and feeling the smooth and soft fabrics glide across your hand as you walk down aisles upon aisles of stunning white gowns, waiting for you to try them on. Perhaps that’s a … More The reality of wedding dress shopping
It’s possible you read the title of this post and said to yourself: “Really? A blog post about Homesense?” And, if this was your reaction, it’s rather understandable. Homesense may not be what you consider to be a worthy for a blog post, but I’m hoping to change your mind. About a week ago I … More Homesense: a one-stop shopping haven
I have wanted to get a massage for quite some time now, however, I couldn’t quite justify the cost of getting one done. So, when my sister generously gifted me with a one-hour massage at Grand Wellness in Brantford for Christmas, I was pretty stoked. I finally got around to booking myself to go for … More Thinking about getting a massage? Read this first
On the weekend, my dad hosted a little get together in one of our barns with many of the friends he’s met through his involvement with local car clubs. Perhaps I should use the term gathering instead of get together, as quite a few folks came out. Either way, it was a great opportunity to … More Unity in the automotive world
Roughly eleven years ago, I went to a hair salon to have my hair trimmed and was left with nothing but regret and anger after the experience. I went to a high-end hair salon, asked for a trim, and left with my hair above my shoulders (my hair was halfway down my back before the … More KML Studio Family Hair Care
Walking out to the parking lot at work back in October to find my truck had been stolen was one of the worst realizations I have ever experienced. I felt violated, confused, panicked, and somewhat lost. I’m one in a sea of hundreds when it comes to the number of trucks that go missing in … More Vehicle theft in Brant County
I often say that I wish I had grown up in the 70s and 80s simply for the music that was produced in these eras. I can’t express how profoundly I enjoy classic rock, and it pains me that music that is even relatively comparable to that of the past likely will not be produced … More Hotel California: The Original Eagles Tribute
On Sunday morning my family and I went to The Lighthouse Fish and Chips in Brantford for breakfast. Located on Colborne St., this cute little place is tucked in a plaza and is therefore easy to miss, so if you’re at that end of town, keep an eye out for it. My dad had been … More Restaurant review: The Lighthouse Fish and Chips
I got my first tattoo when I was in my second year of University. I had a semicolon tattooed on my left wrist, the semi-colon representing its affiliation with mental health awareness and the semicolon movement as a whole.

My sister is the owner and operator of Earthly Delights, a business she describes to be “… a passion project that I began 5 years ago.

Every year throughout the first week in July, the city of Brantford, Ontario, is host to the International Villages Festival. Brantford is the only city to offer the International Villages Festival in the province of Ontario, and it is a wonderful way to permit individuals to experience different cultures they likely would not otherwise. The … More Brantford’s International Villages Festival
Where I live, there isn’t exactly a plethora of restaurant selection when it comes to wanting to enjoy a nice meal. Sure, there’s plenty of roadhouses and chains, but for special occasions, it’s nice to eat somewhere with a menu and atmosphere that truly stands out.
