In the company of loved ones

Good evening, dear readers, how are you on this lovely last weekend of May? I hope that all is well on your end.

I just wanted to post a quick note to apologize for being slightly MIA for the past couple of days (and for the lack of a "Pretty Link Roundup" post this week). I'm in the midst of having an awesome visit with my mom and step-dad, who flew in from across the country on Thursday. It's the first time in almost two and a half years we've been together and each day spent with one another is nothing short of a wonderful gift. We're trying to cram in both as much activity and as much one-on-one, good old fashioned conversation time as possible while they are here, and as such I haven't been online much for the past three days.

{My parents rented a car which means we can finally explore Toronto sans public transit! I love being a tourist in my own town, just as I enjoy discovering vintage TO photos such as this image that hails from a blog devoted just to old Toronto postcards.}

Knowing that my free/internet time would be limited for a few days I wrote some articles (such as Friday's Doing your banking in vintage style) to help cover the duration of parents' stay in advance of their arrival. However, please forgive me if I've not been as on top of comments (thank you so much for each of them!) and visiting your own marvelous blogs as I normally am. I should be back in full vintage blogging force in a few days!

I miss you all and hope that you're having a fantastic weekend!


  1. Wow! Great link. I love old postcards, especially of places I'm familiar with. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Thank you very much for your lovely comment, Halloween spirit. I discovered that site on the same day as I wrote this post and couldn't leave a vintage postcard covered blog such as that unmentioned :)

    Thank you again and have a marvelous weekend!
