First off, happy Canada Day! I hope your celebrations of our nation are as wonderful as the rest of your summer plans.
Summer is the time of fun with friends and leisurely afternoons in the sun. For some children though, screens can be more appealing that sunshine.
We have a list of suggestions and do-it-yourself backyard games so next you hear the word ‘I’m bored.’ There’ll be no excuses for not getting outside and being active!
Our photo gallery features outdoor lighting ideas that will transform your deck or patio into a relaxing space this summer.
If you are hunting for something fun to do with your family, look no further than our list of the hottest, most fun events happening around the city.
As always, I enjoy providing you with both the information and the support you need to make the right decisions.
If you, your friends or family are looking to buy or sell real estate, I am delighted to help.
