At this time of the year we are continually reminded about love. Valentine's is an annual reminder that it's important to display and share in your love for your partner, your children, your family and friends. Of course February 14th is not the only day that love needs to be shown, and searching for love is an individual's choice not something that is controlled by the 45th day of the year. But whatever we believe, love is all around us in February.

Not so long ago, the type of food we ate was based on seasons. Winters were based around root vegetables and hearty carbohydrates, summers were about berries and other juicy fruits. However, now that exporting and the free markets are changing our stores and buying habits, we can find almost any product year round in our local grocery store. Food is such an important part of our existence, and quality should never be jeopardized. The fact that we take it for granted is something that needs to change, and educating our children about the importance of supporting local and ethically produced food is something we can do immediately.

Most of us spend the majority of our hours awake at work. Canada is in the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to paid vacation time, many countries across the world offer many more paid days off, for example in Sweden, France and the United Kingdom, 25 days vacation is often the common practice. Therefore, each vacation day is precious, we have to make the most of them.

With the holiday season well under way, I am sure many of you are still trying to get inspiration for gift ideas, I know I am! It is very easy to look to various websites and stores when shopping for gifts, but I do try to get some gifts that are unique and come from a Canadian based business. So in my search for something different for those people I like to try and surprise at Christmas time, I found a few things that I wanted to share (and one thing that I am quite familiar with!!).

The cool fall breeze filters its way down King Street West in Dundas, Ontario, but Detour Cafe withstands the chill and also the volumes of people hustling to get inside for a welcomed relief from the weather and a locally brewed coffee. The ivy clings to the heritage building in which the cafe dwellers hold on to their warm beverages. When inside the cold air is defeated by the warm scent of coffee brewing and pastries baking, it's a welcome reprieve!

The sculpture was commissioned to commemorate the invention of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell.

As I sit on a park bench watching the leaves fall in front of me, magazine in hand, scarf around my shoulders, I reflect on how truly beautiful autumn is here in Canada. As Canadians, we embrace all that summer has to offer with a sense of entitlement and reward for the harsh winters we endure. Yet, this country has so much to offer in the seasons that follow. From coast to coast, we are surrounded by the natural beauty that seems to radiate from the treetops.
