I love Toronto in July. Traffic is light, colours pop at every turn and the list of things to do is staggering. At any given moment, my evil twin wants to whisper in my ear don’t you wish you had a cottage but I just smile and say yes, of course, cottage life must be grand but so is Toronto without all you people who leave to go to them.
What’s happening on your weekend?
Saturday is market time. This week we’re headed to the Wychwood Barns in hopes of snagging some Monforte Dairy cheese and maybe sour cherries if we’re lucky. Then on to Toronto’s massive Outdoor Art Fair, where inspiration is at the ready if last year was any measure. Sunday hold promise of brunch at this little gem because it’s Sunday in summer and we don’t care about deadlines, and then we’re off for cigars ( hubby), mojitos ( all) and salsa ( see mojitos-if enough) at the Bacardi festival in the Distillery. A trip to Paris and Havana in one day…yes, that’s a happy sigh you hear.
