Fall Into Wellbeing

Earlier this year my friends and I decided to host our first “city retreat” titled Spring Into Wellbeing and it was not only a hit with clients but it was also a lot of fun for us! It was so nice to experience different modalities from our own, watch each other in our elements and come together as a group to create a community event. We loved it so much, we decided to do it again!
Continue reading below for all the details of our Fall Into Wellbeing event!

This week, I had a couple days off and ran away to my favourite place, Wasaga Beach. I’m sure your scratching your head with that statement given my extensive beach repertoire. It’s my favourite because it’s one of the few places I feel close to my dad. It’s funny how certain places, smells or sounds can bring up so much emotion. It will be three years next week since we lost him and not a day goes by that I don’t miss him terribly. Wasaga Beach is nostalgic for me because as a teenager we came up each year to the cottage in Tiny Township. My step-sisters and I would get dropped off on the main beach and hang out all day, parent free. The beaches were too rocky for our liking in Tiny, but our parents enjoyed the quiet. So many of my memories from that time revolve around these shores; from getting ice cream after dinner, to going to the drive in, to taking the boat out fishing or visiting my godfather and his family. When I’m here the memories come flooding back around every corner. My friends and I also used a local campground for some post high school partying, including prom night. It’s one of those places that never seems to change either. Shops have closed and the strip is showing it’s wear; but it’s still very much the same as it was a decade ago. The biggest change is the the shopping area of the main beach that was lost to the fire a few years back; it’s noticeably empty and feels unfinished. When I visit I like to lay out closer to the beach 2 boarder, where it’s less crowded and noisy. Usually, I only get to come up for day trips but this year I got to stay for two nights. The Luau Resort is near beach 2 and is very clean, cozy and well maintained. The heated pool is a nice bonus and the view of the river is a pretty backdrop. This is the most peaceful and happy I’ve felt since I came back from Europe. My favourite feeling is that of being sandy, sun kissed and smelling of campfire.
This is definitely my happy place!

Stouffville, Ontario

I know I set this blog up to show my travels, but sometimes we get so caught up in faraway places that we forget the beauty in our own backyards. This past weekend I went to the Maple Syrup Festival at Bruce’s Mill in Stouffville, Ontario. It was a lot of fun, we took my two young cousins and it was nice to get outside (especially after this brutal winter we’ve had) and do something different. I came home with sun on my face and campfire smells in my hair; it was just what I needed. Personally I still can’t wait for summer, but once in a while winter’s whiteness makes a gorgeous backdrop for photos like this and days like that.
