for valentines day?

Last Saturday, Karyn, Andrew, Rosalyn, Jin and I packed ourselves in our cars and drove to Hamilton for some homemade brunch goodness at Jen & Kyle's. It was pure deliciousness! Karyn snapped some shots from our fantastic brunch here, and you can see snippets of their super charming home too!

Jin & I got a little tour of Hamilton and I was really impressed with James St. and all the beautiful old buildings that have retained so much of their character.

We spent a lot of time in the newly renovated farmer's market and library because it was so beautiful inside! We were already really full from the amazing brunch, but we had to get some cookies from the cookie stall that had every cookie ever invented.

We met Hollie from White Elephant Vintage while at the market, but we didn't make it to their store that day. I was a little sad, but I know we will be back when it gets a little warmer.

Thanks for an amazing day Jen & Kyle!

  2. These shots are pure gold. Love the couch (followed it over from flickr in fact) and the couple in front of the wall, and the balloons. It's making me smile to see such serenity as we, here in PA, watch 50-mile per hour gusts topple things all while the sun shines brilliantly.

  9. isn't Hamilton a sweet little hidden treasure?
    I lived there for 3 years a grew to love every little spot there, especially James St (you should go for an Art Crawl).
    I know live in Whitehorse, but this post of yours just made me incredibly homesick for the Hammer. Thanks for sharing your lovely pics.
