As a woman I wear many hats. I work full time, I’m a wife of 10 years, I’m a daughter, I’m a sister, I’m a blogger, but most importantly I’m a Mom. Being a Mom is my favourite job in the entire world. My children laugh at my jokes, fill my heart with love, and make me proud with each new step in life they take. With the good comes days that are challenging, hectic and drive me to my knees in frustration. Some days the weight of all the other hats come crashing down on me and make me crumble. The frustration, sadness and stress spills out onto my family and children.
There is an old saying ‘a happy wife = a happy life’, but I think it should say ‘a happy Mom makes for a happy, well organised and successful family.’This year, I decided to do something about it! Four fabulous MOM bloggers from my hometown, decide we needed a break, to ‘unplug’ from our families for a day or two once a month. We would use this time to recharge our Mom batteries and explore local towns and cities.
This past weekend, we took our maiden #MomsUnpluggedCa voyage to Kingston, Ontario. Kingston is a Canadian city that sits on Lake Ontario at the mouth of Cataraqui and St. Lawrence rivers. It is known for its rich history, as the birthplace of the first Prime Minster of Canada, Sir John A MacDonald, as the Limestone City, and the site of Fort Henry. I didn’t know what to expect but being a history buff, I was looking forward to seeing this historical Canadian City.
Delta Kingston Waterfront Hotel
As with any journey, the most important part of the travel plans is the lodging. We were invited to stay at the Delta Kingston Waterfront hotel. Located on the picturesque waterfront, this hotel offered many amenities including tastefully and modern decorated suites, a relaxing workout facility, hot tub and pool area, and a must-try mouthwatering restaurant called Aqua Terra.
The rooms we stayed in included two super soft, pillow top Queen size beds (which I enjoyed to MYSELF!), a SmartDesk with multiple connectivity docks and complimentary WiFi, and a breathtaking view of lake Ontario. The staff was amazing and very accommodating, making this stay one of the best experience I have ever had.
What I loved about this hotel was that it was located in the heart of Kingston and provided you with walking access to amazing restaurants, tourist attractions and close to many historical landmarks.
