My Week In Pictures: To Toronto and back!


It’s so nice to be back to work! For the last four weeks I have been at the Rehab Centre participating in their Chronic Pain Management Program. Last week was my first week back to full time jazz-singin’ and I’m so happy to be back. I missed my office, I missed performing, and I really missed hanging out with Craig all day long.

Last Monday I kicked off the week in the usual fashion with Live Jazz Monday at the Mercury Lounge (my favourite night of the week!) If you’re wondering what goes on there, it’s pretty much this only we don’t always wear party hats.

On Tuesday I woke up bright and early and drove down to Toronto to participate in a series called Jane Harbury presents Discoveries hosted at Hugh’s Room. I had a spectacular time, met some wonderful musicians, and made some new friends. Check back this week for some photos and a more thorough recap of this event.

Unfortunately I couldn’t stay long in Toronto. I whipped back Wednesday morning, stopping in Kingston for lunch (at The Sleepless Goat, which was amazing), and was back in Ottawa in time to teach a handful of students into the evening.

The rest of the week was spent teaching all of my lovely students and attending wedding shows! This year Craig and I are attended The Ottawa Bridal Party and Wed By Hand with our wedding music company, Play I Do.

That’s pretty much it for this week! But if you’re wondering why a third of my instagram pictures from this week are of a wool scarf, I finally got my hands on a Pembroke Cowl by Yokoo and I might never take it off. Seriously, I’m wearing it as I type right now. It’s the most comfortable and glamorous thing in my life. I’ll probably be wearing it at the Mercury Lounge tonight during Live Jazz Monday!

Alright, have a great week you beautiful people!
