The beautiful thing about technology is that for the most part, you can take it anywhere! You can basically pack up your computer, camera, stereo, television, telephone, scanner, fax machine... I'm sure I'm missing something... into one little rectangular, paper thin box that slides into your back pocket, and VOILA!
INSTANT OFFICE! And that's exactly what I did. There was no real need to be cooped up inside on such a gorgeous day so I packed up the world's cutest assistant (my one-year-old daughter), a beach bag and my cell phone and walked about 90 seconds to paradise.
When you live and work in Cottage Country, it's so easy to take for granted the scenery and beauty that for some of us is literally in our backyard. Typically for most year-round residents, we spend the better half of a year taking care of our out-of-town guests that sometimes we forget that it's us who needs some pampering from time to time.
I can honestly say by taking a little over an hour out of my day to relax and soak in the view helped me gain a little perspective. People travel from all over the world to visit the 30,000 Islands here on beautiful Georgian Bay. And from time to time some of these visitors leave the glitz and glam of Hollywood for some peace and tranquility... and they're EXCITED to be here!
I want to be just as excited if not more when out-of-town clients ask us for suggestions as to where to eat, play & sleep. Instead of a VA-cation or a STAY-cation this year, I'm going to take an EXPLOR-ation and enjoy all the hidden treasures my backyard has to offer!
Oh yay! Something I've been looking forward to for so long has finally happened... a new website layout! And the funny thing is... or annoying (I'm still deciding) is that it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be!
There are still a few things that are a work in progress... what website isn't? But overall we're really happy with the fresh new look and we hope that you are too!
We have a lot of exciting new things happening this year and some big announcements to make as well! Is the suspense killing you yet?! LOL!
