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.

Merry Ole Stratford

It’s so cliche to explain that the total lack of posting lately is because my life is so busy, blah, blah, blah, so I just won’t do it. Instead I’ll put down a post about a trip that I actually took back in June and pretend like it’s no big deal that I’m writing about it like, one month later…

My brother-in-law’s girlfriend works in Stratford, Ontario. So my mother-in-law asked if I’d like to join her for a day trip so we could meet up with her for lunch. Turned out she picked the perfect day. The weather was gorgeous. I’ve been to Stratford a handful of times, mainly to attend the festival, but it was great this time to just soak up the sun and the town.
We stopped in at Ten Thousand Villages, a great little florist, had a wonderful coffee and lunch, and generally enjoyed the day! Feel pretty lucky when I am able to get away like this…
