Its been quite a while since I have posted on this site.
In spite of covid and lockdowns, I have been busy operating a small Canadian business, which seems to be outlasting lockdowns and covid 19. Here it is https://thirdfloorstuff.com/ but enough of self promotion, not the purpose of this post
When this third lockdown (in Ontario) was announced. I needed something to get me through it.
So every morning I move my stationary bike in front of the smart tv, and open YouTube and search virtual bike tours (now I don’t have too, it recommends bike tours, which is a wonderful surprise) Turn off the lights and emmerse myself.
I have posted on Facebook everyday- a travel diary, I suppose. I have virtually toured over 40 cities and biked over 600kms. It’s been great. Some cities are on my bucket list. Some I probably will not get too so those tours were really interesting. Some cities are now on my amended bucket list.
Our world is stunning and beautiful
Some of my friends have statred biking as well. I will include some of the links below. Enjoy!

Do your best to replicate!
Let me start this post off by saying how absolutely in love with these frames I am. We did this project last weekend and still every time I walk in to our bathroom they make me smile because they fit the space so perfectly. I feel like in the process of decorating all the rooms in our house this year I’ve learned to get rid of all the clutter and pick things that really stand on their own. We wanted the bathroom to be really organic and sort of “nature-ish” so I knew I wanted to incorporate some of these photos on a wall that previously had floating shelves. Photographs are a fantastic way to bring a pop of color into a room without any major commitment because you can very easily change them out. These ones were photos I took on our trip to Miami at the beginning of…
