I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blogging journey writing this blog post at the beautiful Elysium suites sur le Lac in Lac Superior – same place as last year!
It’s all thanks to my friends that I went forward creating www.naomibianca613.com. Since I kept doing all sorts of fun things with the kiddos around the city, everyone kept telling me I should be blogging about it. I finally gave in once I heard it from maybe the 10th person and thought, well why the heck not! I really enjoy writing so it seemed to make a lot of sense.
When I say we are always on the go, it’s TRUE, so there is always something to talk about! Also, as a new stay–at–home mom it has given me a creative outlet rather than just taking care of the household and kids all the time.
So, here we are one year later. Thank you for reading my posts and following along in this little journey of mine.
Last year was our first year at Elysium when I announced my blog and I think it’s safe to say we found our annual summer getaway spot! In all honesty – I tried looking to see if there was something comparable or better along the same concept and was hard pressed to find a single thing. I would love to hear if you know of anything within a few hours drive from Ottawa for a mini getaway!
What we love about this place is that it’s modern cottage country within a rustic environment on Lac Superior. It has all the amenities of a resort, like gym, tennis courts, saltwater pool, restaurant coming soon and more.
The condos are fully equipped with a full kitchen, bathrooms, laundry, and are completely modern. The view is second to none! We landed the same three bedroom as last year and the panoramic view of the lake and mountains is incredible. If you decide that you don’t want to be outside, there is no guilt chilling on the couch and taking in the gorgeous view.
One of our favourite parts is the adorable gourmet market, L’Etelage Marche Gourmand. There are so many gourmet foods from local suppliers and restaurants, as well as all your grocery needs and adorable gifts. I picked up some amazing Koziol products for the home so that was a bonus. They have these stunning little glasses that are plastic and indestructible that look like crystal called Superglas. Also picked up the cutest plastic tote, so perfect for groceries or the beach!
Would love to hear what your summer vacation plans were and/or are!? Hard to imagine it’s coming to an end soon! Until next time!
