Adventures in Kingston

This weekend we had the pleasure of visiting Kingston, Ontario. Oh what a beautiful city!

It’s not our first time to Kingston and it certainly won’t be our last. A huge part of moving to Ontario was to be closer to family and here we are! I spent about half the weekend wandering about saying ‘I live here!!! No really, we live here!!!’ Can you believe this actually happened? It still seems like a dream to me. I am so thrilled to be on this adventure,(p.s. thanks for coming along too 😘) 

This weekend we happened to be visiting Kingston during Blue Fest. Being an east coast gal originally I am a sucker for festivals, it doesn’t matter what, I just love festivals! On every corner, in every pub, down every sweet cobblestone pathway a fabulous band was to be found.

Behind every corner something magical awaits.

In the heart of downtown we found free horse drawn wagon rides.

And of course we visited the Saturday morning market.

Market Square

I always meet the most wonderful and interesting people at the the market.  These flower/produce vendors we’re so cute!

How sweet are these two?

Our next plans are for my Sister-in-law and I to go dress shopping while grandma takes all the littles on trolley-bus ride. We’re not sure that’s going to be quite as magical as she thinks, lol. It’s a 4 to one ratio of smalls humans to grown up but honestly neither SIL or I really wanted to parent  soooooo….”Good Luck Grandma!!!” 👍🏻

While grandma has the smalls, sister-in-law (who we may as just refer to as ‘sister’ I do adore her so), so sister and I will basically be free to do as we like, sigh………Heaven! Honestly, I feel like I’m on vacation and then every once in a while I feel this ‘rush’ and I realize oh my gosh we live here! There’s no airplane ride home, there’s no panic of trying to fit everything and everyone in at once. Theres just a little car ride and we can come back whenever we choose. Total bliss!

So that’s been our week. How is everyone doing? I hope you’ve been having a fabulous summer. If not you’ve got about a week left up here in Canada before school starts so get going and summer hard! Pick a new town and explore! Or better yet pick your own town/city and explore! Buy yourself a little donut or unicorn floaty, you deserve it, and get your tush to the beach! 

with love Kate xoxo
