Allan Gardens

Allan Gardens

Hey Everyone!! It’s finally spring time in Toronto. I know I haven’t been active that much here just because I have been busy with my school and setting up something big. I finally found my niche and I can’t wait to share it to all of you soon! It always nice to find something that you are finally sure of and feels right.

Moving on, after months of avoiding outside most of the time because of the cold weather, Last Monday we were so lucky to experience 23 degree weather! yes finally light clothing and colorful outfits!! My beau and I decided to visit Allan gardens. I love Allan Gardens which is over 100 years old and home to over 90 tropical plants and flowers, My inner tropical girl is so excited! wouldn’t make you wait anymore here are some of the photos taken from my last visit.

It’s actually not allowed to sit on the railings, so don’t do this when you come visit or one of the people who works there will ask you to leave, I almost got kicked out.

After spending about 30 minutes around the park it was time to go and eat! I was sweating, and I love it. It’s been forever since I sweat naturally aside from working out. We also have met few new friends along the way.

So cute! which reminds me of my once turtle pet who I miss terribly.

      Wow. Florida has the best weather ever!! you are lucky, I think us humans tend to take things we have for granted, it’s always good to reflect and be thankful on how blessed we are on what we have! everyone has a different story but what matter is we are alive and healthy!

      Cheers!!

      aaaawww that is so sad!! but that’s amazing that he lived for 23 years! I wonder how much is the lifespan of turtles, they’re such an interesting specie.
