Summer_CollageGood morning everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I know I did. It was fun, relaxing and a real ‘go with the flow’ kind of weekend. We hung out with some great people and just took each day moment by moment, hour by hour…. it was perfect.

The weather cooperated for the most part too… giving us just a hint of what’s to come when Summer arrives which, by the way, I am SO excited for. We have plans of working around the house in our yard – trying to recover and salvage what we can of our landscaping. We also plan to do some serious Garage Sale-ing and Camping in the BOLER! Oh – and deck parties. This will be the first summer that we actually have use of our entire house including the TWO upstairs decks – one South-facing and one North-facing… so when the sun shifts we can move the party accordingly for optimal sun exposure a-a-a-a-a-all day long :) We also have some lovely friends getting married AND one of my sisters (I’m the oldest of 5 girls) is graduating high school and I couldn’t be more proud of her. We are travelling to 100 Mile, BC at the end of May to see her walk across the stage. I’m going to be that older sister (well, I may look more like the crazy aunt because of the age difference) holding up a sign, sobbing and screaming with pride. Will post pics.

Overall I’m super happy and VERY thankful to be in a position to be able to look ahead and get excited about things again. This past 6 months have been very challenging for Jeddy and I (which is a total understatement by the way for those of you who know our battles)… but we are finally getting back on track. We have finally found a new groove with day to day life too. Jeddy works mostly out of the house while I have settled into a routine with my home office on the second floor… patched and cracked walls and all… and I couldn’t be happier.

I am thankful now to just to have a space to clear my head and work.

None the less, the days are getting sunnier, warmer and longer which means we’re that much closer to bike ‘n boler season (for me anyhow). What are you most looking forward to about this upcoming summer? Have any plans to travel? Life events you’d like to share? I’d love to hear…
