Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

…I don’t even know where to start.

Never in a million years did I ever think that I would be writing this letter, but here we are.

At one time, our relationship felt like the best thing that had ever happened to me.

You brought me a sense of joy I never knew was possible, and at a time that I needed it the most.

You brought out the best in me and pushed me to keep going when all I wanted to do was give up, and for that – I will forever be grateful.

I’ll never forget the memories we created…but lately, things have just felt a little off.

It is as if, at one point – you were filling my cup, but for some reason I no longer feel full.

It isn’t fair to anyone to stay in a relationship that isn’t filled with love anymore.

It isn’t fair to you for me to keep pretending like this is going to work…not when my attention and my heart is elsewhere.

I’ve enjoyed our time together and appreciate what you’ve given to me – but it is time for me to move on.

I’ll always remember our time together as a special time in my life…but now it is time to say goodbye.

 

I will always love you, Jenn and the City…but, it’s time for me to move on.

RECIPE | Getting Wild With Wild Blueberries

getting wild with wild blueberries

Alright friends, gather ‘round – it’s story time!

Many (many) years ago, I worked in the nightlife industry. I had various jobs: server, bartender, even shooter girl! Go ahead, get the laughs out now, guys.  

Anyways, there was this one night that I was working a shooter girl shift. It was a random Tuesday night and I thought to myself, “Tonight won’t be too busy.” So I decided that I would make the most of (what I thought would be) a boring night and only drink tequila. #rookiemistake

Ahh, to be in your early 20’s, eh?

Well, about an hour and a half into my shift, quite a few of the regulars started showing up. Slowly but surely, the tequila got the best of me and I had to go home…early. LOL

The next day I was green in the face and felt about a million times worse than I looked. And believe me when I tell you – I looked awful. That awful feeling continued for longer than I care to admit and the smell of tequila making me nauseous – even longer. Like, 10+ years. Seriously.

But that all changed a few years ago when I was finally able to drink tequila again. #blessed

Now, tequila is my go-to spirit of choice and I like to experiment with new and different cocktail recipes. That’s the bartender in me coming out again!

If you follow me on social, you will have known I was recently sent a goodie bag full of Wild Blueberries deliciousness. One of the items was a bottle of Van Dyk Blueberry Juice, and when I got that bartending itch – I decided to play around with some cocktail recipes. After some trial and error, I came up with a simple, refreshing cocktail that’s so easy to make, you literally can’t screw it up! I call it the:

Minty Blue

wild blueberries cocktail recipe glass

Ingredients

1.5 oz blanco tequila (My preference is Cazadores Blanco)

3 oz soda water

2 oz Van Dyk Blueberry Juice

5-7 blueberries, muddled

2 sprigs fresh mint

Dehydrated blueberries

wild blueberries cocktail recipe
Directions
  1. Muddled the fresh blueberries and the leaves from one sprig of mint in a shaker
  2. Add the fresh blueberry juice, followed by the tequila
  3. Add a few ice cubes and shake
  4. Strain and pour the mixture over ice in your cocktail glass
  5. Top with the soda water and dress with a fresh sprig of mint and a few dehydrated blueberries

Cheers!

CONTEST | Enter To Win The Spice Tailor Canadian Line

The Spice Tailor Contest

Have you EVER met a picky eater? Are YOU a picky eater? What’s YOUR definition of picky eating?

When I was a kid, I was THE pickiest eater. Like, not the type who won’t eat a certain food because of the texture…no, the type who didn’t have a cucumber until I was in my 20’s.

True story.

I remember a time that my mother made simple white rice to go with our dinner. Simple, Uncle Ben’s white rice. A classic, right? However, there were white onions in it. Don’t ask me why…or how it worked (because, spoiler – IMO it did not) but, alas, this is what was served. I couldn’t eat it. I just could not.

Literally me right now as I’m typing this – I gagged.

Even just the thought of it…the memory…ugh. *shudders*

And, from that moment on I couldn’t eat onions. I was THAT picky of an eater.

Fun Fact: MY grandparents used to make these amazing pasta dishes. And they would always make a smaller batch on the side, without onions…just for me. Grandparents are the best, eh?

Anyways, I’m rambling. (Shocking, I know. LOL) But yeah, big-time picky eater over here.

It really wasn’t until I started blogging and going to these amazing restaurants and events that started to broaden my horizons. I mean, if you’re going to a 5-star restaurant for their launcg, and the head chef personally serves you…say, bone marrow – you just don’t say no.

(Unless your allergic or don’t eat something for personal/religious views – then that, I get)

But years later, I can still list off some pretty “normal” or “average” things that the everyday person has at least tried that I have never consumed.

Like what, you ask? Well…let’s see.

I’ve never had a slice of tomato on a sandwich or burger.
I’ve never had a dollop of sour cream on my tacos (or anything).
I’ve never had a fig…or a simple peach.
I didn’t even try Indian food until a few weeks ago!

And the only reason I did try Indian food for the first time was because a couple of weeks ago, my friends at The Spice Tailor sent me over some #bloggermail filled with (what I would soon find out were) delicious goodies! They sent me the entire Canadian line – which is 6 products: 4 sauces and 2 daals! I mean, that’s a lot of food!

 

The Spice Tailor is new to Canada and created by British-Indian celebrity chef and 8-time cookbook author, Anjum Anand.

 

I’m not gonna lie…I was nervous! Not only had I never tried Indian food before, let alone cook it all on my own! Thankfully, the meals from The Spice Tailor are so super easy to make. It’s a matter of three steps and adding your protein. Easy-peasy. Even I couldn’t screw that up!

So far we have tried out the Classic Butter Chicken (which I made and holy smokes was it ever tasy) and the Original Tikka Masala (which Mike made for dinner one night and used shrimp with and again, delish). I’m excited to try the other dishes! I think I’ll check out The Spice Tailor Recipes for a little inspiration!

Want To Plant A Tree In Your Name – I Can Help With That!

On October 17th, cannabis will become legal here in Canada – like it is in many states – such as beautiful Colorado, where we recently were.

This topic (legalization of marijuana) has been argued and discussed for years. Whether you are for or against it – the fact of the matter is that is WILL become legalized, so the best thing you can do is educate yourself on the subject.

Now, now that that is out of the way – on to the fun stuff!

Last week, I headed out to the Irisa Cannabis launch party here in Toronto.

Irisa Cannabis

 

Irisa celebrates wellness + discovery with thoughtfully crafted cannabis for modern women.

 

Irisa is a wellness-driven cannabis brand designed with the modern woman in mind.
WE CREATED IRISA BECA– USE WE BELIEVE…
  • that cannabis and wellness go hand-in-hand ?
  • that stoner stereotypes are a load of nonsense ?
  • and that women are leading a revolution to unleash the positive potential of the plant ♀

 

The evening was filled with energy healing, aura readings, curated crystal sessions, ridiculously delish cocktails – but, no “product” (if you know what I mean) was at the event.

NBD – just making myself at home at the #PrettyElevated with @irisa_cannabis event last night. ??‍♀️ ?: @kathrynanywhere

A post shared by Jenn and the City (@thejennandthecity) on

It was really interesting to learn more about the different strains, and it was really interesting to get my aura read.

And you know what – it was even cooler to learn more about a women-owned business aimed towards women.

Girl power, AM I RIGHT?

spice girls girl power gif

Then – the other day I came home to find some pretty sweet #bloggermail waiting for me!

Muskoka Grown is a group of passionate cannabis growers from the Muskoka, ON area who are firm believers “that quality comes from honest, hard work, and from the passion to want to do it no matter what you’re creating.

Now I don’t know about you – but that’s a statement I can get behind!

Muskoka Grown

And these guys (and gals) don’t just talk the talk – they walk the walk. They’re all about the community and doing whatever they can to make it even just a little bit better. One such way is that they’re planting trees on behalf of anyone who wants to celebrate #NationalTreeWeek.

Muskoka Grown

To have a tree planted in your name, all you have to do is:
  1. Go to https://wegrowmuskoka.ca/
  2. Provide your name and email address

…there is no #3 – that’s it!

How easy is that?!

disclaimer: as I mentioned, I was invited out to the event and the gift was sent to me, but I believe both of these companies are dong great things for the world and you know what – we need more of that.

5 Reasons Why Norfolk County Should Be Your Next Weekend Getaway

I am a HUGE fan of the weekend getaway. Like, huge.

I work full-time, so while I do get a few vacations days per year – it’s not always easy to book off an extended period of time. So weekend getaways, especially if able to plan one over a long weekend – are ideal.

Long Point Eco Adventures Norfolk County

So when my friends in Norfolk County invited Mike and I out for a fun-filled weekend getaway recently – we JUMPED at the opportunity!

Experience the small town atmosphere and rural charm, our unique architecture and heritage.

I have a special place in my heart for Norfolk County. I used to spend every summer out there when I was a kid. My grandmother grew up down there in Simcoe, and her parents (my great grandparents) had a house there until a few years ago. While the house may no longer be in the family – the memories I have are some of the fondest, and are ones I will always cherish.

While I may be a bit biased, I think that Norfolk County is THE perfect weekend getaway, and here are 5 reasons why.

1. Say Buh-Bye To The Traffic

Listen, if you live in Toronto, chances are when you think of getting away for a weekend on the water, you’re thinking of heading up north. But – if you’re from Toronto you will know how stupid ridiculous the 400 highway is…especially on a Friday night or Sunday evening. NO THANK YOU.

the simpsons traffic jam giff

That’s just one of the great things about Norfolk County. You can get there and be on a beach or in your cabin in less than 2 hours. Instead of heading north, you simply head south west towards Lake Erie – also known as Ontario’s South Coast.

Norfolk County’s most popular tourist attractions are the beaches, ports, towns and villages along Lake Erie, known as Ontario’s South Coast. These towns include Port Dover, Turkey Point, Long Point, Simcoe, Delhi, Waterford and Port Rowan.

2. Fill Your Belly With Deliciousness

There’s just something about the food in a small town, you know? Those places where things are locally sourced and the chefs use everything local and fresh. It’s just bEtTeR.

I’ve visited a few delicious restaurants in Norfolk County, but one of my new faves is definitely The Combine. We went out for date-night dinner during our recent weekend getaway, and holy smokes was it ever delicious.

Menu built with local bounty.

 

3. Drink Exquisite Wine…And Cider…And Beer

Ok, if you’ve been following me on social media for even just a short period of time, you’ll know I love me a good cocktail…or glass of wine…or cider…ok, you get the picture. The locally grown deliciousness in Norfolk County doesn’t stop with what’s on your plate. There is a plethora of wineries and breweries in Norfolk County for one to explore. On our recent weekend getaway we explored Blueberry Hill Estates and The Cider Keg.

Blueberry Hills Estate Norfolk County

Looking for a tasty alternative to the wobbly pops? Don’t worry – The Cider Keg has a wide selection of non-alcoholic ciders that are simply scrumptious. I’m not just saying that. We went out of our way to stop there and bring home 4 bottles. (…not sponsored).  

4. Swim With The Fishies…Or, Just Admire Them From The Beach

Norfolk County is home to not one, not two, but three beaches; Port Dover, Turkey Point, and Long Point. And you know what? They don’t call it Ontario’s South Coast for nothing! The beach in Port Dover literally has palm trees. PALM TREES, guys! I mean, they’re flown in…but still. You can escape the city and spend your days sipping deliciousness on a palm tree lined beach WITHOUT HAVING TO CATCH A FLIGHT.

Do I really need to say any more?!

5. Do All Of The Activites…No, Seriously – All Of Them

When Mike and I visited Norfolk County recently we stayed at Long Point Eco Adventures, and let me tell you – the “adventures” in the name is well-placed.

Long Point Eco Adventures Norfolk County

Here, you can arrange your getaway to include things like:

  • Kayaking
  • Axe Throwing
  • Mountain Biking
  • Zip Lining and Canopy Tours
  • Fishing
  • Mushroom Foray
  • Zodiac Boat Tours
  • Apiary Tours
  • Observatory
  • Leisure Bike Tours

…just to name a few.

 

 

Ok, I think I’ve said enough. It’s time for a few words from Mr. Mike himself.

Long Point Eco Adventures:

Long Point Eco Adventures Norfolk County

“Tent? What tent? It was more like a luxurious nylon home! Breakfast was awesome – all locally sourced. Meats were fantastic. Some of the best bacon and home fries I have ever tasted!”

Side Note: I’m not 100% sure what the tents themselves are made of, but – the amenities are top-notch.

Features:

    • Eight king suites
    • Seven double queen suites
    • Private flush toilet and outdoor shower
    • Hot and cold running water
    • Mini-fridge
    • Hardwood floors
    • Sliding glass locking door
    • Private deck
    • Electrical outlets
    • Free outdoor parking
    • Activities concierge
    • Full hot buffet complimentary breakfast

Nighttime Zipline:

“My saviour was the darkness, don’t think I’d have enough balls to do daytime. The instructors were great!”

Side note: I’ve now done both the daytime and nighttime ziplines at Long Point Eco Adventures and both are wild. It provided a bigger rush than I had ever expected.

 

Axe Throwing:
“This was extremely fun! I learned that I was an expert after 29 throws. Jenn Jenn was ok too

Side note: First off, thanks Mike. LOL Secondly – axe throwing was a lot more fun than I had expected! I wasn’t really sure WHAT to expect, to be honest – but this entire experience far exceeded whatever expectations I had set. It was A LOT of fun and – on top of all of that, I got bullseye…more than once. So, there’s that.

Overall Thoughts:

“Mikes Total Trip Score: 4.5 / 5

I’m only rating it a 4.5 because I was outdoors and I hate bugs. Long Point Eco Adventures is legit 6 / 5…but..bugs. I hate them.”

Side note: …remind me to tell you the story of how I accidentally let a grasshopper into our wilderness suite…and Mike locked us both out until we could decipher a plan to get the grasshopper out…then, when we did get it out – I was locked out of the suite until I made sure it was far, far away.

Big shout out to Norfolk Tourism for bringing Mike and I out, and thanks to Long Point Eco Adventures for hosting us.

What Anger Needs Most Is Compassion | #MyToronto #TorontoStrong

What Anger Needs Most Is Compassion | #MyToronto #TorontoStrong

My heart breaks for our city, again.

The world is such a scary place. Nothing in this crazy thing called life is guaranteed, and the violent acts of last night on our normally (somewhat) peaceful Toronto streets is proof.

As we laid in bed last night, Mike was scrolling his phone and he said, “There was a shooting in Toronto tonight.” To be honest, I barely reacted. Over the past few weeks/months – there has been a whole heck of a lot of gun violence on our streets. It’s awful. Mike looked at me, and said, “No – like, a mass shooting.”

I immediate grabbed his phone and we scrolled the news feed together.

My heart broke. I was angry. I felt broken. Who could do such an awful thing in a city (I see) filled with love and tolerance? I felt as though this city I gave my love to all my life has changed. I began to think about the family we plan on having – do I want to raise our kids in the city now?

I kissed Mike goodnight, but I didn’t sleep well at all.

What Anger Needs Most Is Compassion | #MyToronto #TorontoStrong

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

When I woke up this morning – I wasn’t angry. I was sad. I was sad that someone had this much anger and hate in their heart. I was sad that I even for one second began to doubt the amazingness that is Toronto.

Toronto is a city filled with a sense of community. We support each other, celebrating our differences – learning from one another.

The people, the food, the culture – that is what defines Toronto…not the acts of violence from those filled with anger and hatred.

For all those affected by the shooting last night – remember that. Remember that in Toronto, we will always choose love over hate. Remember that you have a community of people who are here for you and support you.

And while we are all struggling to come to terms with what has happened – try to remember that what anger and pain need most is compassion. Be kind to one another.

Rants And Rambles | Why Does My Scalp Feel Like It’s On Fire?

Friend: “So, Jenn – what did you do last night?”

Me:

breaking-bad-nothing-gif

In all actuality I spent way too much time googling “90s fashion,” “90s grunge fashion for girls,” and “How can I look cool while trying to hide my anxiety at a 90s themed event?” while I had at-home hair colour (hopefully) working its magic (covering my grey hairs).

Tonight, Mike and I are heading to #ExtraInnings: Smells Like Team Spirit in support of the Jays Care Foundation.

When you think of the 90s, what comes to mind? Let me know because who knows what fun things may come your way. ? For me, it’s the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls. It’s butterfly clips in my hair and secret notes in my Caboodle. It’s going to see Titanic in the theatre and having a different LipSmacker in every pocket. • Oh, and of course – the back-to-back world series championship wins for the Blue Jays! DUH! Do you remember Joe Carter running the bases and Tom Cheek saying, “Touch ’em all, Joe – you’ll never hit a bigger homerun in your life!” • On July 19th, I’ll be joining fellow young professionals for a night filled with nostalgia…oh, and the likes of Jose Cruz Jr., Fred McGriff, and Mr. Joe Carter himself at #ExtraInnings in support of the Jays Care Foundation. You can join us by clicking the link in my bio for tickets! #WithRogers #Rogers_Partner

A post shared by Jenn and the City (@thejennandthecity) on

 

Join fellow young professionals and Blue Jays legends for a nostalgic 90s night out at Rogers Centre™. Party the night away as we transform the concourse into a 90s dance party for a throwback Thursday evening in support of Jays Care. Joe Carter, Fred McGriff, and Jose Cruz Jr. will all be on hand as we come together to celebrate everybody’s favourite decade.

…now do you understand the 90s Google searches?

Have you ever gotten trapped in a Google search web where you click on one thing, which leads you to another…then another…then another and then next thing you know, your scalp is feeling awfully warm and itchy and then you realize, oh crap – I forgot to set a time and this hair colour has been on for like, 30 minutes?

No? Just me. Oh, well – alrighty then. Carry on.

I remember when I first started out blogging. I was confident (or so I pretended) and eager to go to every event. I wanted to show face. I wanted to meet new people. I wanted to BE EVERYWHERE. Now, as the years have gone by – I find myself going out less and less. And the times I do RSVP “Yes” (and actually show up and not bail last minute), my anxiety goes wacko leading up to said event. The times have changed. There are so many new faces and I always feel a little out of place. I usually keep to myself, head down and in my phone…avoiding contact.

Mental illness is a son of a bitch, eh?

It’s a vicious circle. Your depression and anxiety (or whatever ails you) keeps you isolated, then you feel so utterly alone. You’re lonely. So, then when the dark cloud somewhat lifts and you get the kahoonahs to actually make plans – you either bail (ahem!) or isolate yourself once out. Then you go home, kicking yourself – beating yourself up for not putting yourself out there enough. All those negative thoughts – that self-destructive inner battle – pushes you back into a dark spot. And then you start the cycle all over again.

No? Just me. Oh, well – alrighty then. Carry on.

Anyways, that’s where I’m at now. But I have been writing more and plan on using the blogaroo here as my diary, of sorts. I want to share with you guys daily (or, at least a heck of a lot more than I have been). So, expect a lot more of these rando dando check-ins and rants and rambles. Oh, and stories. I have plenty of those from over the years and now’s as good a time as any to start sharing!

…and if something resonates – HMU in the comments.

Writing is therapeutic for me, and just for that brief moment when I hit publish, it feeds my ego and makes me feel like someone may actually read this and be like, “Huh – so I’m NOT alone in feeling like this.” Which, in the end – is really all I want.

…until next time lovelies! xx

Side note: #ExtraInnings: Smells Like Team Spirit tickets are still available, so if you’re interested in joining and supporting an awesome cause – click here.

We’re Hitting The Road Again! | Road Trip To Norfolk County

Let me tell you, I love me a good road trip. And I have been on plenty in my lifetime.

I’ve driven from Toronto to Las Vegas; Las Vegas to Vancouver; across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto. I’ve driven to Montreal many times; driven to Ottawa; done mini road trips around Ontario…and last year, Mike and I drove down to Boston. In fact, it was last year at this time that we were in Beantown!

jenn and the city fenway park

I surprised Mike with Blue Jays vs Red Sox tickets for his birthday because I know how much of a Blue Jays fan he is. Since the very first day we met, we talked about the different ballparks we’ve been to and the ones we really wanted to see. Fenway Park was a big one for both of us, and neither of us had ever been! So when I started thinking of birthday presents for my babaganoosh, this came back to mind and I knew I just HAD to get us tickets!

The drive down was gorgeous and the whole trip was just one of those memorable experiences that now bring those silly inside jokes only we know…as any good road trip should!

Want an in on one of our inside jokes?
The next time you see Mike, ask him how much a bottle of water costs.

We’re likely heading down to Denver (flying, not driving) over Labour Day weekend for a baseball tournament that Mike plays in every year, so another week-long road trip wasn’t really feasible this summer. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t go on a road trip at all!

I’m so excited because we’re heading to Norfolk County for a gifted experience at the beginning of August!

jenn and the city norfolk county

Norfolk County is only about an hour and a half southwest from Toronto (depending on traffic), but what’s even more exciting is that Norfolk County holds a very special place in my heart. My great grandparents had a house there, in Simcoe, my entire life. I would go out there every summer as a kid (picture proof above…peep my model stance LOL), and even into my adult life – that house, that town – was always the one steady constant I had in my ever changing life. But alas, things change and the house got sold…and my trips down to Norfolk County became fewer and further apart.

So when I was chatting with my friends at Norfolk County Tourism, and they invited us out for a weekend – I jumped at the chance to walk down memory lane…and even create a few new ones with Mike!

Of course, I’ll be sharing our fun adventures here on le blogaroo and on my Twitter and Instagram feeds because I want you guys to see how much fun you can have so close to home…and how to do so while avoiding the mess that is Highway 400 in the summer. LOL!

Torontonians – you know what I’m talking about!

CONTEST | Enter To Win A Dinner For 4 From Rose’s Family Meals

Story time! A little while back, Mike went away for a week to visit one of his best friends.

My initial reaction was, “OMG – A WHOLE WEEK BY MYSELF?! HOW WILL I SURVIVE??” Then, my thought process (somewhat) quickly changed to, “OMG – A WHOLE WEEK TO MYSELF!!”

I mean, I knew I was going to miss my babaganoosh, but a week to myself wasn’t the worst thing either. I was getting excited! I was going to fill my calendar with events and hangouts with friends. I was going to drink white wine and have Mr. Noodles for dinner – just like I did far too often in my single days. Ha. I was going to enjoy some “me-time.” It was going to be fabulous.

busy gif

While I did go out and about and do a bunch of fun stuff, like check out Medieval Times with a group of new blogger friends (more details on that coming to le blogaroo soon!) – I also stayed home and did a little at-home pampering on myself.

Sometimes you just need a night at home to rest, relax, and take care of you. You know? I waited until the very last night of my solo week to do this, but hey – better late than never. LOL

So, what exactly does one need for a night of relaxation? For me, it’s easy.

JennJenn’s Checklist For A Solo Night Of Relaxation
  1. Wine, duh.
  2. Delicious food.
  3. A 90s Playlist
  4. Netflix
  5. Cuddles with Dusty

Rose's Family Meals

I REALLY wanted to focus on the relaxation part, so I did not want to cook AT ALL. So when my friends at Rose’s Family Meals offered to send me over a nutritionally-balanced, delicious multi-course meal – I didn’t hesitate to take them up on the offer.

Words I Write | Sometimes You Just Need To Shut The Boogeyman Up

jenn and the city

Real life isn’t always the silly selfies you see online. Real life can be hard; real life can be exhausting.

There will be those days where you feel down and out; those days where you feel frustrated and angry.

When you feel alone and have that boogeyman inside your head telling you things you don’t need to hear.

Those days where you will just want (and maybe even need) to just shut out from everyone and everything…and that’s ok.

There is no harm or shame in taking a little time to yourself.

It’s a healthy thing to do – disconnect and just ~*LiVe*~ your life.

It’s become so easy to get preoccupied and swept up into this whole thing, this “online life” we live…but, take that step back every now and then.

After the rain, the sun will reappear. There is life. After the pain, the joy will still be here.

Recharge and refocus your energy.

But always remember that no matter how bad it seems, it will get better. I promise.

…ok, love you – bye. xx
