Location

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Nestled at the top of the Niagara Escarpment, Hamilton's historic village of Waterdown was founded in 1823 by entrepreneur Ebenezer Griffin who started a milling business on the Grindstone Creek. Today, the village endures with beautiful tree-canopied streets, lined with century homes and beautiful gardens. The neighbouring vicinity is blossoming as one of Canada’s fastest growing suburban communities, complete with all the retail and recreational infrastructure one would expect. The heritage district itself has many amenities within its walking confines including pubs, cafés and spas plus the famous Grindstone Creek/Smokey Hollow Falls portion of the Bruce Trail. There’s a small town feel rarely found within big cities - friendly and tranquil simultaneously close to the action and close to the country. Just a few short kilometres away is the GO train to Toronto, the Burlington Waterfront, Royal Botanical Gardens, the trendy restaurant districts of Hamilton and several conservation areas including Mount Nemo, Rockliffe and Tews Falls.

My husband Chris and I like to travel, exploring the real experiences in places we visit including eating great local food. We especially like to buy fresh and cook ourselves. I'm a Nutritionist, Author and Wellness Coach, Chris is a former executive and a pretty serious Pizzaiolo with a passion for sourdough and his wood burning oven. Ours is a blended family with 6 kids - 3 teenagers, a tween plus toddler twins; 3 boys and 3 girls, so life is always full of fun and energy. We love where we live (Waterdown's heritage district) and love sharing the experience of our home and our positive energy!
