Hey, It's Ok

With Amber from Airing My Dirty Laundry

To be sad that summer is unofficially over. It went too quickly and I didn't spend enough days at the beach. While there are things I didn't get the chance to do this summer, I had a fantastic summer!

That I have lost interest in Big Brother this season. The majority of the houseguests, especially Josh and Paul, are so appalling that I can't stand to watch. 

To be sad that my favourite summer smoothie/juice place will not be re-opening next summer; this is their last season. 

That I met Joel Plaskett!! I am a huge fan and this was definitely one of the highlights of this summer!

To be going back to a paper planner this year. Last year, I switched from a Lilly Pulitzer planner to a happy planner- which did not work for me and that I stopped using before 2017 even started. I'm trying a paper planner again. We'll see how this works out.

Inspire Me: Summer

I can't believe that today is Labour Day and the unofficial end of summer! This summer went by so fast. There were a ton of things I wanted to do this summer that I didn't get the chance to do and the weather was not spectacular, but I had a great summer- lots of memories and experiences!!

In honour of summer- my favourite season- I thought I would share some of my favourite summer quotes.

Hey, It's Ok!

With Amber from Airing My Dirty Laundry

That Josh is not only the most annoying Big Brother Houseguest this year, but he is possibly one of the most annoying people in general. I hope he gets evicted soon.

To be excited that Joel Plaskett is playing at Celtic Festival this year! Joel is one of my favourite musicians, and I have never seen him live before..super excited!!

That I am finally reading KA Tuckers new book, Until It Fades, and am loving it!!

To be sad that today is August 1. Summer is going too quickly and I feel like I haven't done much to really enjoy summer or experience all that summer has to offer,

That I would like to go to Greece. It looks really pretty there and I feel that I would really fit- being by the water, surrounded by people, good food and drink...or maybe that's just my romanticized version of what Greece is like.

Canada Day 2017

On July 1, we celebrated Canada Day and 150 years of Confederation. There were all kinds of celebrations to make this milestone, and I spent Canada Day in my hometown- something I haven't done in years! I am a little late in sharing how I celebrated the day, but better late than never!!

It was a jammed pack day with a ton of things going on!! I spent the day with my family, and we started at about 9am where my dad unveiled a clock and encapsulated a time capsule. 

Next we were off to a local park, which was where our City's celebration were taking place. The festivities were officially kick-off and included an appearance by our Town Crier! 

A portion of the street was shut down and filled with food vendors. The park hosted a variety of activities- face painting, arts and crafts, games such as bubble soccer, inflatables, and even activites out on the water.

And of course there was live entertainment- musicians, magicians, singers, and dancers. 

We took a break in out day to head down to the Flatwater Centre and take in some of the races for the Dominion Day Regatta. 

What is a Canada Day celebration without fireworks?! We finished the day on the bridge watching fireworks over the water. It was a spectacular show and a fantastic day!
