Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy

July 19, 2013

 

Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability. Sam Keen

Well the first half of 2013 flew by didn’t it?

*averts eyes in shame at the lack of posts*

We’re now well into summer and here on the east coast we’ve been graced with lots of hot, humid weather peppered with multiple days of rain. We’re forever guessing what to wear and an umbrella has been used as much for keeping the blazing sun off our skin as the wet rain.

We’ve been enjoying weekends at the family cottage on the lake by swimming, reading, campfires and relaxing with a slower pace of life and been spending our weekday evenings swimming in the local swimming hole, walking on the nearby beach boardwalk, flying kites and enjoying some ice cream to cool off.

And the great part is we haven’t even taken our vacation yet! 🙂

We’re scheduled to be off most of the last week in July when family will be visiting from out of province so we are really looking forward to spending some time at the inlaw’s farm and of course some time at the family cottage.

In August I’m making a return trip to Newfoundland for some more exploring. I was there in August 2011 and it has been calling me back ever since.

This time my mom will be joining me (we went on a mother-daughter trip to PEI last summer and had a wonderful time). We will fly in and out of St. John’s but also road trip across the province and explore all the little outports and beautiful scenery of Gros Morne National Park.

My most anticipated adventure will be a return visit to Ferryland Lighthouse – my happy place. I cannot wait to give my camera a workout on this upcoming trip.

Work is very busy as it is the busiest time of year at my day job and on the photography side of things I’m shooting a few weddings this summer and some portrait sessions but I’m honestly really enjoying spending my down time with the boys.

They are only little once and so I’ve really loved introducing them to cottage life and learning to appreciate time spent in nature.

There will be plenty of time for to do lists when the outdoors isn’t so inviting 🙂
