Summer Vacations Part1

In my early 20's I traveled alone, at the time my work schedule only allowed me to go away during May and/or October, not exactly the high season. Although I went to far off exotic place, met loads of friendly people, dealt with culture shock and learned a lot about myself, nothing beats going away with friends. I now focus on short trips with girlfriends to major cities (preferably USA). Nothing will change my views or experiences overseas, but hanging out with a couple of girlfriends in an awesome city is what I prefer these days.

A few weeks back two of my girlfriends, their significant others and myself went to Toronto, a wedding outside of T.O. and then my one girlfriend and I headed to the Windy city. More pictures to come!

ICE CREAM. We left Vancouver in pants, cardigans and carrying umbrellas. :-D

CHAMPAGNE after the I do's. Lake Ontario is the darker blue line behind us.

Two cute Canadians being Missourians for the day.

About to leave Canada for Michigan! Road trip.

And here is my adorable puppy (who lives with my parents) who is too hot and lazy to bend down for a drink. All together now, Aaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Summer has arrived...

And I am oh so late on everything. I'm behind on updating and I'm going to start making notes of when to keep on top of this. This is suppose to be my quick and easy diary to look back on, so no more excuses.

Just a few pictures I found on my phone (the rest are on my computer at home and there is so much editing that needs to be done before I can post). I don't have a lot of excuses as to why I haven't posted in a while, I haven't been feeling as creative lately which is bull as I always seem to be doing something. I think it's because I've been transitioning into sewing from knitting and needed to get a little bit more comfortable with the change in fabric. I have my next sewing projects lined up and I'm grabbing the fabric this weekend!

There has been a lot of out of town trips, a little bit of recovery from a bike accident :-( which made me a bit scared of bikes and changed this entire summer. It was suppose to be one of my most active summers yet while training for a biking event but landing on my hip had me barely walking for a week and now I'm just getting my groove back with riding. Next year will be the year!

So for now I need to work on regular blogging, regular hobbies and if I have to I'll have to buy a calendar to remind me what to work on next :-)
