• It’s All On You

    November 7, 2017 Kate

    You know what traveling alone is? Traveling alone is a crash course in expectations. It’s an exercise in ownership. A lesson in choice. And it’s a really, really good way to find out how much you like yourself. You and you alone are responsible for your time, your outlook, and your experience. You’re not responsible…

  • Simply, Go

    November 6, 2017 Kate

    I travel alone. Not always, but sometimes. I just got home from a week in New York City. Last year I did a 12 day road trip around Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island by myself. I’ve gone to Paris by myself, Stockholm, Milan… I’ve never thought much of it. These are places I wanted…

  • Traveling Alone and a (Not so Hidden?) Lesson in Expectations

    November 1, 2017 Kate

    I enjoy traveling alone, I really do, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy every moment of it. Monday was hard. I was so excited to get here but once I did… Once I dropped my bag off at my Airbnb and started walking around Williamsburg… I felt pretty flat. I felt lonely. I’m not entirely sure what brand…

  • How to Tell if You’re Doing the Right Thing

    October 31, 2017 Kate

    How to tell if you’re doing the right thing, a definitive guide. OK OK, my definitive guide. Yours will be different. The only thing consistent about your twenties seems to be change. (It’s nice to have something you can count on, right? That and my unwavering love of coffee.) Change means decisions. Decisions about jobs, about…

  • My First Camera, an Exercise in Nostalgia

    October 30, 2017 Kate

    I’m flying to New York City this morning. !!! New York! I couldn’t be more jazzed. I love this city. I love the people, I love how busy it is, I love how bad it smells. I love it’s endlessness. This was the first place I ever travelled to. My first time out of the…

  • I’m Looking for Solidarity, Not Advice

    October 27, 2017 Kate

    I don’t want advice. I don’t want more people telling me what to do. And I really, really don’t want to read another how-to guide. I just want to know that I’m not the only person feeling like this. I’m looking for solidarity. More than ever, I think we simply want to feel like we’re…

  • File Under, Things That Make Me Happy

    October 22, 2017 Kate

    All of the above make me so inexplicably happy. That house? Forget it. Too good. Today’s photo venture brought to you by the kind of low-grade anxiety that only a “north until you hit water” drive can cure. Thank you, Cook’s Bay. Ya never let me down.

  • Schomberg! Ya Pretty

    October 21, 2017 Kate

    On a scale of 1 to dream house how off the charts is that first home. I mean seriously. And are you seeing the little trinkets in the windows? These people are my kind of people. Took a wee gaunt out to Schomberg today to admire pretty and/or deteriorating things. You know, as one does.…

  • Pilling Problems With Malabrigo Merino Worsted Yarn?

    December 20, 2016 Kate

    Let’s have a chat about yarn. And pilling. I knit this lovely Brooklyn Tweed Bray Cap a year ago from Malabrigo’s Merino Worsted yarn, and while it continues to be my favourite hat, it’s started to pill considerably. Which is a bummer. I loved how ‘crisp’ it looked when I first made it. Now with…

  • The Family Farm in Preeceville, Saskatchewan

    December 15, 2016 Kate

    I know you’ve been on the edge of your chairs waiting for this since that first post about Preeceville Saskatchewan a few months ago, so without (even) further ado, here it is… Visiting Preeceville was one of the primary reasons for my Mum and I’s trip out West this past summer. As I mentioned, it’s where my…
