    June 26, 2018 Kate

    Ohhh heavens. It begins. Trip photos! My Mum and I spent just over two weeks together in Europe last month on our long-awaited mother daughter trip. We’ve been talking about this trip seriously for 3 years, but it’s been a goal of mine since I visited Stockholm for the first time in the spring of…

  • A Birthday Venture to the Islands

    June 13, 2018 Kate

    The Toronto Islands, that is. Somehow I’ve lived here for how many years and never made my way over?? We started at Hanlan’s Point and walked our way right around to Ward’s Island, where we capped the day off with sangria, chorizo nachos, and apple rhubarb pie (voted best combo by one Kate Smalley) at…

  • A Day in Prince Edward County

    June 11, 2018 Kate

    In which I found plenty of fields, open water, falling down and/or abandon homes, and old things. Not to mention the most aptly named antique shop. And the best license plate known to man. It’s lovely out there. 10/10 you should go. (Not pictured: coffee and an incredible gluten free coconut raspberry something-or-other from Enid Grace…

    May 7, 2018 Kate

    I’ve been tracking my energy cycles lately (big fun, I know) to get a better sense of when I do what kind of work best. I work from home and I’ve got a fair amount of flexibility in scheduling so I have the luxury of designing my days. I’ve figured out that when I’m mentally…

  • Love Letter to the East End

    April 19, 2018 Kate

    I recently moved to the east end and, as you might imagine, I am the happiest of clams. I love it here. I love the new bits being developed, but mostly I love the old. I love the breaking down, the worn, the well used. I love the little marks that say, “I was here.”…

  • Downtown Las Vegas is My Kind of Vegas

    March 13, 2018 Kate

    Remember that time I went to Las Vegas and then approximately two months later recovered my Lightroom catalog and got around to processing and uploading the photos? Ya… If you ever find yourself in Las Vegas, do yourself a solid and check out the Downtown. It’s a whole other world unto itself and totally movie…

  • A Portrait of my Nana in 1942

    February 1, 2018 Kate

    I mean, wow. I don’t think I need to explain how good this is. What’s this development style called? The wash of colour of stunning. I’ve never seen a portrait of my Nana like this. Something about it—maybe it’s her gaze or the curve of her back—has really struck me. I can’t find a date…
