The newest thing

I bought this coat a couple of weeks ago from J&R Grimsmo, Grimsmo is a really sweet shop on Barrington St, and the ladies who own it are the greatest.
I had been looking at this coat for a long time and finally decided to go for it.
It has the perfect pockets, the perfect shape and a really good-looking lining!
Halifax can get pretty rainy so having a cute little rain coat certainly helps with all the grey days.

Sap

You know it’s spring when the sap starts to run in the Maple trees.
Growing up my family always gathered sap, boiled it down outside and bottled our own maple syrup.
Now my parents are making it again after a long hiatus and my sister and her family are carrying on the tradition.
No maple syrup compares to the kind that is boiled down over an open fire outside…. with a beautiful family member tending to it, sometimes until it’s late in the night.
It’s smokey tasting and each bottle is a little bit different from the last…perfect!
