Toronto Bloggers Meetup

I had such an amazing weekend, I’m really sad that its over.

Despite the not so amazing weather {insert rain}, I had a really relaxing time, lovely sleeps, amazing meals, great friends and spent lots of snuggle time with my baby.

But definitely one of the highlights of my weekend was our Toronto Bloggers Meetup on Sunday.  A huge part of why I write in this blog is to meet people, to be a part of a community and to make friends…and meetups are such a great way to do that.

In the end there were four us blogging ladies who enjoyed a delicious brunch at Brassai in Toronto.

Andrea of Silence and Noise, Tracey of helena and ali, Maaike of creJJtion and myself.  Unfortunately Randalin {Harvesting Kale} was home sick, and a few other bloggie friends couldn’t make it due to the very last minute plans on our part :(  We’ll definitely be putting together another meetup for January and this time we will make sure to give everyone ample notice…ekk I’m already excited about the possibilities.  Some suggestions have been thrown around for fun activities such as wine tastings, crafts, maybe even a cooking/baking class?!  {that last part was totally just dreamed up by me right this second}

We had a really lovely afternoon, and it was nice to make some new friends, talk about our passions and enjoy yummy food.

Maaike gave us these super lovely tree ornaments that she made herself.  They are so delicate and lovely, I can’t wait to put up our tree so I can use it!  You have to check out her blog its full of holiday goodies!

Naturally we all took out our cameras and iPhones and documented everything!

I love the next photo, it came out by accident while Andrea and I were trying to take photos of each other photographing, but it came out so lovely…that its definitely my favorite of the bunch now.

…and what it was supposed to look like

The lovely ladies!

And finally I had to take one last photo of Andrea and Maaike in front of the beautiful Brassai red door.  It was too lovely to pass up.  Too bad Tracey had already left and missed it, but we’ll have to take lots more at our next meetup in January!

Toronto Bloggers Meetup

This coming Sunday, Andrea from Silence and Noise and Randalin from Harvesting Kale, have organized a bloggers meetup and set up a site here.

We realized there aren’t a lot of opportunities for Toronto {and surrounding area} loggers to get together and network, and we wanted to change that.

If you are interested in joining us for a lovely brunch {with lots of good lighting for photos!} the details are below.  Also if you know any other GTA bloggers who would love to attend please pass this information along.  The more the merrier!!!

Location: Brassaii {461 King Street West… nearest intersection is King and Spadina).

Time: Noon-3:00pm

Date: Sunday, November 27 2011
