It really is the best time of the year, our lives are full of festive gatherings enjoying new friends and old .
I am fortunate to have the best job ever and with that comes fabulous events
This year our Holiday Party was held at the Historic Gooderham and Worts Distillery District
A charming reclaimed area that is the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian industrial architecture in North America.
Annually, this site becomes a beautiful Christmas Marketplace complete with vendors, ferris wheel, merry-go-round, pretty lights, cobblestone walkways and the most wonderful tree.
We arrived for the afternoon function when the area was buzzing with school groups and those that were lucky enough to have the day off to enjoy the distillery district during the day.
Our venue ARCHEO was just breathtaking, originally a 150 year old carpentry shop, the original timber with gorgeous, giant artwork and beautiful light....just breathtaking. The atmosphere was superb and the food outstanding.
That's me in the middle
We all had a fabulous afternoon.
When our function concluded, we strolled around the corner to the Mill St. Brewery (tricky with heels on cobblestones) and as night was falling it became magical.
When we left Mill St. Brewery it was as though we were transformed into a European Market or extras in a movie. Every where you looked, was just beautiful. I will be back to savour every corner of this little hidden gem right in the heart of the city (only with more sensible footwear)
I hope you are enjoying the most that the season has to offer.
Get out there and be a tourist in your own town.
