If you are one of the lucky ones, you are away for March Break and won’t be reading this post or thinking about what to do this week. However, if you’re like us, trying to balance work and kids home from school we thought you could use some inspiration. Toronto has a lot of traditional March Break activities (ROM, AGO, Toronto Zoo, Casa Loma etc.) but what about those of us who don’t want to spend a small fortune or who have already done a few rounds of the traditional Toronto attractions?Continue reading
There is a reason the Village Players in Bloor West is celebrating its 45th year. Well, a few reasons. Top of that list, is all of the amazing volunteers who have kept the lights on, the sets designed, the costumes made, the stage managed and the arts scene alive in our community. One of those volunteers is a wonderful client of ours who is embracing her new neighbourhood and giving back at the same time.Continue reading

Did anyone else have a crazy week? Time is flying by and our countdown is approaching the half-way mark. The next few days are about taking the time for family, saying thank-you and passing along some holiday cheer to others. Have fun!
Are you getting in to the holiday spirit? We sure are and our Christmas Countdown Days 5-8 will help you get there if you need a little push. Here’s what we’ll be up to over the next few days.
It’s happening!!! Today is the first day of our WSS Christmas Countdown. We are so excited about our advent calendar and hope you will follow us here and on Instagram to see what we are up to everyday.
We are starting out with Days 1-4 and there are links below with extra information. Stay warm, have fun and countdown to Christmas with us west-end style!
It’s that time of year again and we are down to less than a month until Christmas. Wendy and I thought that adults deserved an advent calendar this year too, so check back on December 1st and see how we will be counting down the days until Christmas in 2018. We are going to spend December once again hanging out in our community, shopping locally, spreading joy through Random Acts of Kindness and squeezing in some “me time” as well.
We are challenging each other to complete every item on our Community Christmas Countdown advent calendar again this year and hope you’ll join us. It is a good reminder to be grateful for what we have and to show our kids that giving back is more fulfilling than “getting”.
