Losing yourself in doodle art and playing with acrylics, even when you don’t know what you’re doing, to wipe away the stress of the week you’ve wrapped up.
…spending Saturday afternoon with your favourite person exploring a trendy Toronto neighbourhood.
Ok, I’m not an artist but I’ve always wished I could draw. So, I figured, I’d bring out the closet wannabe artist in me and start a series of my own doodle art through a corresponding series of “Happiness is…” posts (h/t to Charles Schulz for the original “Happiness Is” series). I think some daily self-reflection on the positive things about life is always a good thing. I’ll consider this a stress reliever and an opportunity to explore my creative side. Before you say it, no, I won’t be giving up my day job. 🙂
As it was a lovely Saturday, we took the car for a toddle through the city and found ourselves in the Roncesvalles neighbourhood. After enjoying a scrumptious lunch at Pizzeria Defina (the Pizza Expo was as delicious as our waiter professed it to be – a must try), we walked the streets and wandered into the various home deco stores there. I now want to redecorate!
I’d love to hear your ‘happiness is’ moments and/or what you do to beat the daily stresses in life.
Have a wonderful Sunday and a lovely Mother’s Day all!
