The Dutch have a special word to describe “cosiness”, “comfort”, but it’s also something that goes a little beyond that. “Gezellig”. Pronounced correctly, it kinda sounds like you’re clearing your throat, but this blog explores its meaning by documenting experiences that make life richer and deeper; through food, family, and the making of a home.

Creative Mornings in Toronto

I’m on my way!


To quote Creative Mornings themselves:

About CreativeMornings
In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.

The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local sponsors, generous venues, and longterm partners.

Anyone can attend. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered.

Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!

I’ve been following these talks every since they started – even before they came to humble TO. I’m so excited to finally have had the time to go and the ability to sign up and register before the darn thing filled up! Not to mention that they have a fabulous, intuitive, clean site that should be the envy of everyone…

Looking forward to a quick trip to one of my favourite places – might even sneak in a little vintage shopping 🙂
