Sakura Trees of Brampton

You know when something comes onto your radar and then everywhere you look, there's that thing? I feel like Sakura trees aka cherry blossom are that thing for me. A couple springs ago I went to High Park, Toronto to view the blossoms there. Before this first time, I had no idea that this was such a thing here. Now it seems like people count down to the spring blossoming, in fact there is actually a website that does just that

Each spring my instagram feed is full of Torontonians frolicking through the paths of High Park, taking pictures of and in amongst the flower laden branches. But I'm a busy person (aren't we all?), I can't just head to Toronto as soon as High Park Nature Centre tells me it's peak blossom time and also Toronto isn't the centre of the universe (I know, that's an incredible statement but it's true). All kinds of Sakura trees can be found a short drive from Toronto and I was super excited to find out that one of these locations is actually at a local park, Joyce Archdekin Park located on Main Street South, Brampton. 

Not wanting to miss out on the cherry blossom grams I got my butt down there as quickly as I could and snapped my own blossom selfies. It wasn't as busy as High Park, but it certainly was not a secret.

A sure sign spring is on it's way and the promise of so much warmth and sunshine. Bring on the season!

What flower do you most enjoy popping up in spring?

Holidays and Self-Care

If you don't already know, taking a break sometimes can be the best form of self-care one can take. Whether it's a mental break by changing your current task, a social media break  by turning off your devices, or a physical break and putting kilometers between you and your everyday life.


That's exactly what my holiday and blogger break was for me. Even more than I had anticipated it to be. I may still be struggling through my third-life crisis but I now have a renewed focus and found a bit of quiet from that nagging, critical voice. You know the one I mean. The one that pretends to be helpful and constructive, but can actually be quite harsh and damaging more often than not.


My holiday was a perfect mix of friendship love and exploring new places, both things brought me out of my head and reminded me to be a bit kinder to myself, friends' kind words can have that effect. The blogger break was more incidental to my travel plans and lack of time to schedule posts before leaving, but this break was actually quite good for me. I was glad to see that taking a mini blogger break didn't mean the end of my small but much beloved readership. And I've even returned with a restored sense of excitement to get back into writing and creating content.

What do you do to give yourself a little self-care?
