About me

Hello, my name is Alison Elizabeth.I live in a suburb of Toronto with the dazzling name of Mississauga.

I was born in Wales to a Welsh woman and an English man who moved with my older brother and myself to Canada just before I turned two so I flew for free to my new home.


I am proud to be Canadian

I love this land and its people and thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the great beauty and bounty to be found here.

I am happily married, middle-class and middle-aged with three adult children who still live at home. I spoil them with all that I continually do for them but I feel them slowly leaving me and find more enjoyment than ever nurturing them and letting them know they are deeply loved.

I have left my heart in a lot of places.

Most of my wanderlust centers around travel with generous splashes of food, flowers, books, pop culture, movies, music, sewing projects, this and that thrown in for fun.

I have been fortunate to learn a lot from helpful and generous people and unpredictable plot line throughout my half century on this wonderful planet. I'd like to share with you some of the lessons, recipes, happy memories, realizations, photographs and others gifts that I have gathered along the way.

I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places and try new things. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media! I'd love to be friends.
