salt and cedar

A few weeks back I spent the day at Eastern Market in Detroit with a good friend exploring the market and the surrounding shops.  It was one thing that I had never gotten around to doing in my lifetime spent in the Windsor/Detroit area and before I made my move to Toronto, I made a point to finally visit.  It was a perfect day, the sky was clear and the sun was shining, a rare thing it seems this summer.  While wandering we stumbled upon the curious entrance of a letterpress studio called Salt & Cedar.  Inside we met co-owners Megan O'Connell and Leon Johnson who gave us personal tour around the space and provided us with an insight into their vision.  The space was warm and inviting, not unlike their generous spirit. A must visit next time you are in the D!

A gift from Leon as I was leaving. It must have been my RBF (*resting bitch face :) the made him compelled to gift such a gem. Wink Wink!

i heart detroit

Well I had to pull from the archives for his one because things in life have gotten a little busy. High school prom, exams and graduation for my daughter, selling our family home and dwindling our belongings down by 75% (which felt surprisingly liberating), securing a new condo in Toronto, moving and getting settled into our new surroundings and a new workplace. While it was a lot to handle, some days better than others, I have no regrets and I am more than excited about what the future holds. I'm glad to be back <3
