Two for Tuesday: Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today’s two for Tuesday is extra special because it’s my dad’s birthday! This styling man…

has gone from hiking in suits in Italy as a teenager to…

DAD-1

hanging out in baseball-style tees in Toronto and texting local and international family and friends on his iPhone.

And he’s the most photogenic out of anyone in our family.

Seriously.

My Dad continues to have bursts of energy (in between resting, of course) and has helped me with countless reno projects at my home…you’ve surely seen shout-outs in these posts! Soon we’ll be off to Italy on our father-daughter trip of 2016. Bring on the gelato (you’re paying, right, Dad?)!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing all of you a wonderfully happy Christmas! Thanks, as always, for making time in your busy day for a little White Cabana!

I’m taking a few days off from blogging to spend time with my family, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see an update. I’ll leave you with one of my favourite Christmas Cabanas this year:

The Friday Five: Black and White Christmas Trees

Earlier this week, a colleague asked me if I had a white Christmas tree. Truth revealed – while I do have quite a few white ornaments, I mostly embrace a traditional green and red colour scheme at Christmas. I keep my decorations tame, but I do not shy away from these classic colours. I can’t yet bring myself to go all-white because I really like having a real tree in the house for the month of December.¬† Surprised?

What do you think about having a non-traditional tree? Would you go for a white or black version?
