We drove up to the cottage after work and I am so incredibly grateful to be here. The last week is really catching up with me, physically, mentally. Feel like this is the best place to be right now. I have Friday and Monday off for the long weekend and am looking forward to charging my batteries.
In other news, I’m a millionaire in Animal Crossing! I got this game in the spring and didn’t think I would play much but I’ve been playing for a few minutes almost every day. A nice break from everything to step into another world. 🌎
Took a break for a week and I’m back in action. Tomorrow we’re heading up to the cottage for a few days for the long weekend. I can’t wait to be back up in the woods. It’s so magical up there. The last few days have been pretty stressful and to be honest, I’m totally exhausted. Between, work, family, the pandemic, it’s hard to not feel tired.
In other news, my Monstera is growing up the wall so much! I’m really happy with how my plants are doing at home, it’s been such a joy nurturing them the last year. Received a really cute package from Pure Sun Farms today, thank you!
Last night we went to Val & Mike’s backyard wedding, it was beautiful. Thank you Chino for snapping these great photos of us. It was really nice to see everyone, celebrate with them, and dance. Congrats!!!! I wish them lots of love & laughs together. It was really heartwarming to have a big family experience together.
I had originally planned to wear a dress from The Fitzroy but I ended wearing this gorgeous number by Greta Constantine (thanks April!). Sean wore his best suit and it was so good to get dressed up. I can’t remember the last time I went to a wedding, it was years ago!
Last night I went out for a bike ride to The Hippie Market at Dundas & Ossington. I absolutely love this market and find a treasure each time I go. Arrived there in shorts and a cute top and left wearing a new flower dress!
Walked over with Jen after stopping to visit and braid her hair. Feels good to be out & about in the sun.
We drove up to ‘Scottage‘ on Stoney Lake to spend a couple of days with our friend Jake. It was such a relaxing time. I spent most of Saturday laying in the sun, floating, and reading my book. I was due for a battery recharge and couldn’t have asked for a better place to do it.
We had a big bbq for dinner and finished it off with a delicious birthday cake for Sean from Pusateri’s. His birthday is Sunday but since there were other guests, it was the perfect way to celebrate.
Jake is the Manager for The Tragically Hip and their drummer Johnny Fay was staying there with his partner too. So cool! Young me never imagined I’d be hanging out with the Tragically HIp and singing HBD to Sean togetehr. What a trip!
