June was a crazy month.

And that’s an understatement.

I moved. (The third move I’ve made this year).

For those of you have moved, ever, you know the huge pain-in-the-ass that it is. The planning, the boxes (oh, those damn boxes), the furniture shopping (IKEA is fun for like 1 second), the set-up, the switching mailing addresses… you get it.

With that, I think that I am finally settled. Furniture has been bought and assembled (-ish), internet is set up (that was a dark couple of wifi-free weeks) and more importantly, I am feeling happy and settled in my new home!

Hello, Toronto and welcome back to my blog. Stay tuned for pics of the new pad!
