Sunday Funday in the city

After spending much of our Saturday stuck in the house all thanks to thunderstorms, we made the most of our Sunday by venturing into the city to explore and enjoy the turn around in weather. We didn't have much of a plan in mind as to where we wanted to go or what we wanted to do, but spontaneity is usually when we have the most fun! We hit up one of my favourite murals in the city done by artist Maya Hayuk, and had fun taking photos and being goofy as passersby smiled and/or laughed at us - YOLO. I'm learning to not care about what others think as I pose for photos, but still get awkward and shy from time to time (Ruben can attest to this!)
Afterwards we made our way over to Queen West, one of our favourite neighbourhoods to hangout and wander around. Both of us started to become hangry so we began doing that thing where we ask each other - "where do you want to eat?" "I don't care!". And that's when we stumbled upon Duggan's Brewery, it was like it just appeared out of nowhere and said "COME HERE!" We love to visit local breweries, and had never been there before so it was the perfect opportunity to try something new. The beer was deliciously refreshing and quite satisfying. We snacked on some appetizers, because that's really all they had, but the fries with garlic aioli and cajun cauliflower definitely hit the spot paired with our pints!
After feeling happy and replenished, we continued to walk about and explore. As we approached one of our favourite flower and plant shops, my eyes grew big as I saw the freshly painted pink building! There's nothing I love more than a building or wall painted a perfect shade of pink (paint it pink and they will come! - my life motto) I wish I had taken photos inside, but my brain was too scattered at the sight of mini pink pineapple plants and moon cacti, not to mention I was still in awe of the pink exterior! Next time...

I live for weekends like this - they are my favourite kind of days spent with Ruben wandering around and enjoying the city together. Looking forward to much more fun and adventures soaking it all in before it gets too cold!

  2. Cool shots! I totally feel you on the whole feeling awkward when taking photos. I usually take my girlfriend's pictures for her blog but at the end of the day the shot is better when I just go for the shot without worrying about what people are thinking. // ▲ fredsguidetolife.com ▲
