Christmastime in Toronto, the way this holiday is meant to be celebrated. Cold, snowy and full of festive decorations. For most raised in Canada, it may seem too cold or too snowy, but growing up in a warmer climate, I always longed to feel the seasons. So much of what we feel is based on the state of mind we view it through. I love that I can truly enjoy this weather and its oftentimes frigid temperatures. Whether we venture out to partake in the many holiday activities Toronto has to offer, or we simply stay home or visit a dear friend for a playdate, we truly love our life in Canada.
I hope you enjoy these final days of 2013 with those you love and care about and make memories that you will cherish always. Below are a few ideas to keep you busy this weekend. First and foremost I would love to host you at our Official Modern Mama TO Launch Party!
