Happy weekend + links I love

Hunter SS14Hello weekend and goodbye January! I for one am happy to see January go. It simply means that I’m one step closer to my Ottawa trip; only two more weeks!

Amazing read: What Would You Save In A Fire? I had to evacuate my apartment in the wee hours of the morning last year because one of my brilliant neighbours threw a lit cigarette off the balcony and it landed in the dumpster out back. In my sleepy state, I somehow managed to find my passport and SIN card.
