A Weekend of Art, Music & Food

Hope you all had an amazing weekend!

My weekend kicked off with a fabulous concert at the local art gallery featuring Kytami, a Canadian musician and violinist born in Vancouver. She played along side her DJ who mixed music from all genres, from rock to classical, with a predominant Irish theme that was upbeat and dance-worthy. I’ve never been to a concert quite like it before – in the middle of an art gallery, surrounded by paintings, a wooden staircase and a chandelier in the room. The atmosphere was warm and cozy, everyone was well-dressed and out to have a fun and relaxing Friday night.

If you live in Victoria and haven’t been to the Art Gallery on Moss Street, I recommend checking it out. Hint: it’s a great date night idea! The gallery is small but has quite a few paintings from Canadian artists including Emily Carr, the famous Canadian icon whose works portray the lives of indigenous people and landscape of the Canadian Northwest Coast.

Last but not the least before I sign off, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone reading my blog!  A few of my friends have messaged me in the past couple weeks sending me sweet & wonderful comments. It means a lot to me that you all take time out of your busy lives to browse my blog. And to the silent ones there also, thanks for reading ❤
