goodbye Summerhill

Today is moving day.  Since our son is almost 10 months old now, we’ve outgrown our one bedroom loft.  Sigh. I will miss its ‘city-living’ appeal and especially the exposed brick walls.  We are moving north in the city to a brand new two bedroom condo.  On the bright side, the new place is a blank canvas just waiting for me to be inspired. Stay tuned.  In the meantime, I’d like to say goodbye to my favourite neighbourhood haunts…

 

Goodbye century old houses and the tree-lined streets

Goodbye dog park and the Summerhill LCBO

Goodbye decor shops on Yonge

Goodbye Terroni

……Goodbye Summerhill….

 

About a year ago I found this limited edition print in a local gallery. This is the Summerhill subway station, circa 1978.  Knowing we’d eventually have to move from the neighbourhood, I decided we needed to own this print as a reminder that one day we will return (when we have at least 1.5mil+ to buy a place….one day!)  For the time being, this print will hang in the foyer of our condo.
