3 Things I'll Miss about Canada

We are getting closer and closer to moving back to Florida.  Jay is down there as we speak finding a house for our little family.  Time here in Ontario has flown by, but winter seems like forever.  We have had good times here in Canada, and these are the three things I'll miss the most about the Great White North.

1.  Poutine
Oh how I love thee!  You can't go wrong with French fries doused in gravy and topped with cheese curds.  They serve poutine at a lot of restaurants here.  There are even places that serve ONLY poutine.  The picture below is a delicious double cheese version from Poutini's House of Poutine.  It's good to the last bite.  I wonder if I will be able to find this delicacy in Tallahassee?

2.  Downtown Toronto
We live about 20 miles from the excitement of the city, and we've seen most of it while we were here.  It's a city full of amazing neighborhoods, great food, and culture.  More Americans should make the trek up here to experience it.  Jay and I have had date nights there, and we've done lots of family outings.  I've always felt safe walking around, and Torontonians are very friendly and polite.  One of the places I'll miss is St. Lawrence Market (in the pic below with Wyatt).  It's a food lovers heaven.

3.  All You Can Eat Sushi
There are SO many of these restaurants here!  Our favorite is Masa, where lunch is only $12.95 for unlimited sushi (full review coming soon!).  They have great sushi rolls and lots of other goodies too... tempura, udon, teriyaki and soup... just to name a few.  You order from a menu and they bring it to your table when it's ready.  Everything is fresh and delicious.  I know they have this concept at a few places in the states, but I haven't seen it in Florida yet, boo!

What are the 3 things you miss the most about the last place you lived?


  1. Hi Natalie! I just found your blog :) Your little guy is so adorable! He is about 3 months younger than my little one, Ella! Good luck with your move! I look forward to following your blog in the future!

  3. It feels like just yesterday when you all moved to Canada!! Time sure flies.

  4. We moved to Austin from Tally, and I miss it so much! I think the thing I miss most is the people! I had the greatest friends there and everyone is so nice. You are going to love it!!

  5. I'm not sure about Florida, but I know that Memphis has amazing All You Can Eat Sushi AND delicious Poutine! So hopefully FL will too! :)
