Luvly Round-Up: Things to do in Lunenburg

Coffee Fix
There is something about small towns and coffee shops that goes together perfectly.  Lunenburg is home to No. 9 Coffee Bar, a brand new cafe that just opened this summer. They have a beautiful private garden that is the perfect spot to get in some quality reading time, or to chat with a friend.

Luvly Roundup: Welcoming Rebecca to Lunenburg!

Hi! I'm Rebecca, I'm new here. Two weeks ago I embarked on a new adventure and made my way to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. I’m from a little town in New Hampshire, with not a whole lot going on, and now I find myself in the busy little town of Lunenburg with plenty to do. Much to my surprise and delight a week later I found myself working at the adorable Luvly. As a newcomer I thought I would share with you all some of the things I have discovered my first two weeks here.

Confetti Squares
Though this recipe may not be a Lunenburg tradition for all, it quickly became one for me. My mother-in law, who lives in Mahone Bay, NS, sent me this delicious recipe. It is perfect for upcoming summer gatherings.

            1 Cup of Butterscotch Chips (You can use chocolate chips too!)

            ½ Cup of Smooth Peanut butter

            ¼ Cup of Butter or Margarine (at room temperature)

            9oz or 250g of Mini Marshmallows(the colored ones are the best!)

Heat first three ingredients (Butterscotch chips, Peanut butter and Butter) on low heat, stirring often until chips are almost melted. Remove from heat and stir until smooth. Let it stand for 15 minutes or until lukewarm. Add Marshmallows! Stir until coated. Press firmly in a greased 9x9 pan. Chill until firm.

Summer Clothing
Now that I have been introduced to the stunning Canadian made clothing I cannot get enough of it! The beautiful, lightweight Atelier b. tank is top on my to buy list. The fabric is perfect for the summer sunshine an will easily move into my fall wardrobe with a simple cardigan. It is a perfect versatile piece that will last all summer and into the fall - be sure to come by and check it out.

Summer in Lunenburg
Though my time here in Lunenburg has been short so far, I have found a number of places to visit, and the more places I go, the more things I discover.  One thing that you cannot miss while in Lunenburg is the Lunenburg Farmers Market every Thursday. It has been a highlight of my time here in Lunenburg. The market is filled with beautiful stands selling fresh fruits and vegetables, delicious baked goods, locally roasted coffee, and many more exciting things all worth checking out. One of our very own, store manager Alicia, is now selling beautiful flowers too! It is an exciting way to get a little taste of all the beauty and fun Lunenburg has to offer.
