Stoney Point - Dec. 16, 2014: Two very different things to do with the family. Head out to the Homestead in Essex for holiday traditions of an earlier time or laugh at a now holiday classic showing at the St. Clair College Capital Theatre in Chatham. Both are wonderful family outings so get out and enjoy. FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Dec. 14, 2014: I read the amazing letter shared by Kerry Magro and bawled. It hit home as many stories from our community do and I shared it with friends and family and posted it on our facebook page. I thought I would write a short article to share it with the broader community. I often write “our community” meaning the ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) community, and it is a great and broad community thanks to social media. FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Dec. 13, 2014: Head out and search for your tree - it's a great way to spend the afternoon. We grabbed our kiddo as he loves to run around and then ride the wagon we toss the tree on. There are some great spots all over Ontario. FULL STORY
Windsor - Dec. 13, 2014: We can become rundown during the Christmas season so we need to try to remember to take care of ourselves. You can also take a break and eat a healthy lunch or dinner at Carrots 'N Dates or get them to do some of your sweet treats so you have less baking. Take a load off at Salute Espresso and re-energize with a great cup of java and they have many twists. Keep moving with the cranberry coconut or goodtogo bars from Eat What's Good in Chatham. With all the walking you're doing, extra cleaning and taking care of guests and yourself, that baked apple martini sounds pretty good. Enjoy. FULL STORY
Cornwall - Dec. 13, 2014: There's a ton cooking in and around Cornwall. If you haven't been out to Winchester then check out what's happening at Winchelsea Events to eat or attend a class. Love Love Food in downtown Cornwall will take care of your baking needs (wonderful) and while your downtown, stock up at The Mindful Bakery & Food Market. FULL STORY
Windsor-Essex - Dec. 12, 2014: I think think discovering the origins of the popular ‘Frozen’ theme and learning about Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen story and meeting the Norwegian Fjord horses is a fantastic thing to do and interesting for the entire family. So much going on in Windsor-Essex gang enjoy. It looks like we have warm weather to search for our Christmas tree but we're going to get a little wet doing it with the rain I'm seeing in the forecast. Get out the rain gear if you're searching for your tree this weekend. FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Dec. 10, 2014: As I've been chatting with friends, the topic of heath and better eating habits keeps coming to the forefront. Some friends have been eliminating gluten, some are following a mediterranean, paleo, vegan, vegetarian, ketogenic, way of eating or diet. Organic ... organic ... organic is always a hot topic. The good thing is people are educating themselves and figuring out what works best for them. I hope you find inspiration from the eating spots I've been sharing with you. Here's to good eats!

Stoney Point - Dec. 8, 2014: There is no shortage of events that you can attend at this time of year. It's nice to get out into the community and get treated with the vocals of choirs at local churches and orchestras offering Christmas magic. Plays on the stage, Elf having special showings at the theatre and lights, sparkling whether you drive or walk your neighbourhood, explore another or visit spots like the Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg. FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Dec. 6, 2014: I think when I start food articles with "healthy" I lose a chunk of you. I think that some toss in the towel at this time of year and the mentality is eat and be merry and come January I will be good again. Gone are the days of cardboard tasting boring healthy eats.
