St. Jacobs: a town where horse and buggies are still on the road

St. Jacobs

This is a quaint little Mennonite town in Southern Ontario that always brings back special memories whenever I go: a nostalgic feeling and a place where I would live.

Marion, Lara and I enjoyed a few minutes relaxing, listening to the rustle of the autumn leaves, after a leisurely breakfast. Then it was time to go to St. Jacobs for some shopping and sightseeing. This was the only chance we had to sit in the summer room during their visit, because we were out touring all the time: out after breakfast and home after dark.

Magnolia I found a fabulous black and gray asymmetrical top that looked like a designer top.

I happened to be wearing my vegan over-the-knee boots which goes great with it.

So I bought it and wore it!

This is a town where shopping is an adventure!
