719. Thanksgiving Weekend + Autumn in Toronto

Tommy Thompson Park Fall
I think Fall/Autumn has now become my favourite season. When I was younger, my favourite used to be summer since it meant a few months of no school. Now I love this time of year when the weather becomes cooler (but not too cold) and the leaves start changing colours. It just feels so cozy. I also have an obsession with pumpkins.

This past weekend we went for a walk in Tommy Thompson Park which is just east of downtown. I've never been there before (or even heard of it). It was really nice. We also got some nice drone shots:

Mount Pleasant Cemetery Fall
I love walking through cemeteries. I find them so peaceful and beautiful, especially in the Fall. Last weekend we had a stroll through Mount Pleasant.

718. Anniversary Dinner at Blueblood

Leftbanked Despacito Anniversary
Last week my boyfriend and I had our anniversary dinner at Blueblood, a beautiful steakhouse inside Casa Loma. I really loved it. It was a great way to celebrate the best two years of my life so far!

717. Recent Life | The rest of September + October

Sapiens Leftbanked
Currently reading Sapiens. It is really interesting - I love it so far. If you don't already know it, it talks about the origins of our species/homo sapiens and how everything was shaped through the the cognitive, agricultural and scientific revolutions to how we are today. We first got the second book (Homo Deus which talks about the future) at the airport before a trip and I read some of it. But I decided to read Sapiens first before finishing that one.

716. Recent Life | August & (most of) September

leftbanked despacito Rogers Cup
I am getting more and more behind on my "Recent Life" posts that it's starting to stress me out lol. I still haven't completed all the Peru posts but I will put that on hold for now. Here is most of what happened during August and half of September. I had too many photos I will leave the rest for a separate post. I can't believe it's already Fall again! I do enjoy the crisp temperatures around this time of year though.

A few days after coming back from our trip was the Rogers Cup Final (Serena Williams vs. Bianca Andreescu). It was my first time ever watching a tennis match. It lasted only about 15min, after which Serena retired from the match due to an injury and Bianca became the automatic winner. I wish it could've lasted longer to make it more worthwhile but I still really enjoyed the experience!

My favourite booth was Skull Store's. I really love this stuff, I find it so fascinating. They sell a bunch of weird things and oddities like skulls, fossils, taxidermy, skeletons, bones..etc.

Bluestone Salmon Toast
A few weeks ago I discovered this cafe down the street from me (Bluestone Lane - it's an international chain but only recently came to Toronto) and I've been going for breakfast literally every single morning since then. I've walked by many times in the past and never bothered to try it. Then one day I went for a toast and became obsessed with them. I always get the avocado one now and sometimes the banana or salmon. They are all so good!! & I love the atmosphere in there.
