Looking back at 2016, I couldn’t be more grateful for your support. What started as a hobby in sharing our personal style and what we’re inspired by a few years ago, Steph and I have been blessed with the opportunities to continue doing what we love. Over the years, we’ve been able to connect with many of you and are consistently inspired by y’all! So how about we raise the first toast to you, our readers…cheers!


2016 was a year of laughs, some tears, and such excitement. The joyous of moments was marrying my best friend. And as we look forward towards a new year, I’m stoked to face every up, down, and curveball that comes our way — as we continue to grow in our marriage. So how about a toast to growth!


This year brought in lots of changes including living together now that we’re married. Having our own place has been a blast — everything from decorating to cooking together. What we’ve learned is how much we love being hosts. So as we welcome 2017, we’re excited to host our first New Year’s Eve party at our place with some family and friends. And you better believe that I’ll be servin’ up some of my favourite rye whisky —  Canadian Club® Chairman’s Select™100% Rye Whisky…


Enjoyed neat with a charcuterie spread that includes cheeses, salamis, mixed nuts, and dry fruit, it’s the perfect way to ease into the night. Canadian Club 100% Rye Whisky is balanced with toasted grains, gentle wood notes and a tantalizing hint of sweet vanilla. It’s a smooth finish that’ll warm your guests up on what might be a cold New Year’s Eve (especially if you live in Toronto!). To catch some recipes, visit my earlier posts: Dry Rye Manhattan | Rye Mule


However you celebrate the last day of the year, be safe and responsible, and enjoy the night. I am stoked for what 2017 has in store and I wish you all a year blessed with good health and happiness. Cheers, friends!
