h o l a 👋 As we start a new year [ both 2020 + soon to be another year of my life ] and as I welcome some new followers 🙌 I thought I would take a minute in the hammock here in m e x i c o to tell you a few little things about me and my pursuits for this year... I’m a Muskoka wedding planner + designer with a passion for gardening, home decor, gatherings with loved ones, entrepreneurial pursuits + innate wanderlust. I’ve admired Martha Stewart since childhood. She’s a crafty b*tch + one hell of a boss lady. Every winter I redesign my garden in my notebook and every spring I get so busy with weddings it never comes to fruition. Hopefully this year will be different! I’d like to spend more time on the things I love. Such as - Making preserves - Gardening - Cooking for loved ones - Decorating the house - Traveling If my love of travel didn’t interfere I’d like to have a flock of farm pugs. I think it would be adorable.

s i e s t a // being an entrepreneur you wear many, many hats as they say and it can be hard to turn off your mind from both the everyday to dos but also long term business planning. I’m happy to say that this trip has been truly relaxing and a real break. [ forced on me due to poor internet 🤣 ]

r e a l t a l k >> I love relaxing with Matt + Odie on a Sunday morning, ideally with brunch. It just feels charming + lovely. This morning however we were up at 5am chugging through a foot of fresh powder in a cube truck to tear down a wedding which involved lugging a lot of heavy furniture. The couple are so lovely and their wedding was stunning - don’t get me wrong! But this is a reminder that weddings + event decor are hard work and not always glamorous. Just keep that in mind as I sit here posting pics of #odiemyers in his pink blankie nest 😘

c h e e r s to all the lovely couples + vendors that braved the muskoka roads yesterday for the @muskokaweddingshow I loved meeting new vendors, chatting with all the couples and reconnecting with all my friendors I don’t see often enough! Being an entrepreneur can be isolating, especially in this area, but I feel so re-inspired by our wedding community 💕

Holiday Prep // now that we’re officially closed for the Christmas break it’s time to prep for holiday guests + entertaining. I’m trying to get a head start so I can spend time with our loved ones and relax. [ Bellinis already chilling for xmas morning🥂] Today I’m working on readying guest beds, cleaning the house, lunch prep, pre-making desserts and baked goods. Anything I can really! But at the end of the day some things are best made fresh so we’ll see how this whirlwind holiday goes! What’s your best holiday prep tip? Personally I like to preset the table but that backfired at Thanksgiving when we needed it for brunch too 🤪 🥂🎄✨
