Well it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. I guess I inadvertently took the summer “off” from blogging. But I’m happy to say that my summer has been jam-packed with mini road trips, family & friends, and lots and lots of fun. Here’s a snapshot of what I’ve been up to!
Summer started off off perfectly with a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful camping trip with Mom, Dad, and my 3-year-old niece Isabella It was just the refresher I needed after ten long months at school!
In addition to camping, I was able make a few visits back home which of course meant lots of time with my three adorable nieces! These girls definitely have a huge piece of my heart!
Of course a trip back home is never complete without seeing two of my best girlfriends and their sweet babies! We spent an afternoon at the beach, played at the park, enjoyed lunch together, and went swimming at the pool where I spent many childhood summers!
Along with friends back home, this summer included vists with two dear friends who now live overseas! I took an overnight road trip to visit with my university roommate Chadley and her family who were home visiting from China! It was a short but very sweet time that involved swimming in Lake Muskoka, delicious drinks, and a lot of reminiscing. Last week, I visited my old high school friend Maureen who was home visiting from NYC (and the UK before that!) It always fills my heart and feels so good to see old friends again!
Immediately after my trip to Muskoka, I had the pleasure of enjoying another camping trip with Mom, Dad and my nieces This time we enjoyed Christmas in July, the beach, campfires, and best of all, more family time!
Of course those are just some of the highlights of my summer so far that I was lucky enough to capture on camera. Trips to Gillies Lake beach, reading, doing yoga, playing softball, spending quality time with my hubby and kids, and following the Toronto Blue Jays on TV have also been a big part of my summer! And the fun’s not over yet because this weekend coming is the one I’ve been waiting for all summer! Stay tuned to hear all about it…. Let’s just say, right now I’m more excited than a kid on Christmas morning!!!
Hope you’re having a wonderful summer too!
