Amongst all the museums that we have visited, this was truly a hidden gem - the Toy Museum! This place has all types of toys - doll houses, miniature railway tracks, puppet houses, cars, mechanical toys and other unique toys from all parts of the world. There was some super intricate arrangements of war scenes, a well constructed railway track and a demonstration to kids of many old time toys that left them awed. Run by a very nice gentlemen who offered us free visits for as many times as we wanted and told us about his visits to Jaipur and India in search of toys, this is a place to go and get transported into a wonderland.
||San Secondo D’Asti|| the church from my recent photoshoot with @itsanadelariva Stepping into that church was like stepping back in time. Hidden amongst the urban background of the Ontario airport and industrial buildings surrounding it.
Loss. It’s an emotion all of us struggle with.
For me, it’s that never ending search for that missing puzzle piece. Today, I lost a loved one. This is a form of loss I find the hardest time coping with. I can find myself after I’ve lost my way, whether that’s on a map or in life. After heartbreak, I’m not lost for years trying to find new love or myself. I’m hardly ever at a loss of words or ideas. But then there’s death — the ultimate loss.
Really the best, and ironic, way to describe my current state of mind is lost. My mind wanders and reminisces about my loved one. Yet, I cannot even phantom that I’ll never have the chance to play cards with her again.. My body is flooded with emotions, yet all I feel is lost.
I know each day it’ll get better. I know there’s happiness just beyond the horizon. But in the meantime, or even for a little while, it’s ok for me to grieve and feel lost. .

Loved dining at @alucorestaurantandbar last night which was a part of the @seatemple.portdouglas.
They have a seperate vegetarian menu with lots of vegan options.
We had pressed watermelon salad and the cauliflower steak. We set the boys up with some chips, bread and broccolini and they tried/ate half of @ryanhaslerbaby dinner 😂
