It’s been 3 months since I got engaged, and my life is basically consumed with wedding planning, and trying to book things. I’m really looking forward to checking out ReBash next month to check out all of the local vendors that I can work with for my wedding!

There will be 56 vendors exhibiting and selling awesome things. Sounds good?

#IndigoBookClub April: The Nest

the nest
Have you been following along with the #IndigoBookClub? For the month of April, the book pick is the much buzzed about novel The Nest by Cynthia D’Apprix Sweeney. Can we take a moment to look at how gorgeous the cover is? I just finished reading this book and I enjoyed it. It was funny, frustrating, sad and addictive. Read more below.

On a wintry afternoon in New York City, Melody, Beatrice and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, who has just been released from rehab. Leo’s bad behavior before entering rehab, culminating in a car crash while under the influence, a nineteen-year-old waitress beside him, has left the Plumbs’ joint trust fund “The Nest,” as they’ve taken to calling it, endangered. All four siblings, at very different places in their lives, believe that this money will solve a host of self-inflicted problems and their consequences.

Tender, funny and deftly written, The Nest explores what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of our lives, and the fraught but unbreakable ties we have with our families.

Did you read the Nest? Wanna talk about it? Join the #IndigoBookClub Twitter party with @chaptersindigo on April 27th at 7 PM to take part in a discussion about The Nest!

I was invited to a delightful lunch hosted by Mutti. Francesco Mutti was on hand to talk a bit about the brand. His great grandfather started Mutti in 1899. They first started preserving tomatoes in tins in the 19th century. Mutti harvests their tomatoes in a simple process in the summertime in Italy. They only work with tomatoes, and are constantly trying to improve their quality. They are a top brand in Italy, and are now available in Toronto! Some Mutti products include pizza sauce, tomato paste, peeled tomato and tomato concentrate. (more…)
