Summers in Manitoba equal fairs and fun. Well, if we were being completely honest, every season in Manitoba equals those things. But if that speaks to anything at all, it’s the fact that there is just always something happening and there’s always the next best something to try. Just off the high of
How can you make your summer in Manitoba even more glorious? With a trip to Grand Marais, of course.

Photo by @mariebebe_ The world has been moved and shaken by countless revolutions throughout history, each one stoking a flame and igniting change, some for the good. One of those key movements happened in the 19th Century art world and while it may – in our times, anyway – be seen as a ground-breaking shift in creativity and artistic expression, the beginnings of the Impressionist era of art was rather the scandal of its time.

It may very well be a few months still until Christmas, but no one said you couldn’t be proactive by shopping for loved ones ahead – way ahead – especially if your loved ones prove challenging or picky. And let’s not forget those loved ones with random birthdays that just spring up out of no where – never mind the fact you had an entire year to think about it – and leave you scrambling to find a meaningful gift.
