Maluca Wine Bar

Tonight after work I got together for a much needed catch up with two of my favourite ladies, Nela and Amanda. We became friends a few years ago when we all worked retail together at Jacob. We all grew up and got big-girl jobs, but the friendship stuck!

I decided to take on a project which I've been wanting to do for years. A gallery wall.

This past weekend, I was up at my cottage: Rock Bought'em.

Close to Parry Sound in northern Ontario, it's my family's little slice of heaven! We wait to get up here all winter long (which this year was TOO long).
