the weekend again, already?

Is it just me, or does time seem to be speeding up? There is so much I want to do, so many things I want to experience. Sometimes, I wish I could just press “freeze”. With the school year winding down, it will soon be time for some “so longs” and “farewells” and “see you in the fall”. It always takes a few weeks to shift your mindset from work to vacation mode, but this year I am more excited for summer than ever before (maybe not as excited as the summer I got married). I am having so much fun with this blog, and connecting with people around me. I feel giddy at the thought of having days upon days to putter away at projects that excite me and really learn how to use my camera (well, it actually belongs to my mom – thanks mom! I’ll be looking for suggestions when I take the plunge and purchase my own camera).

I keep wavering between the idea of exploring our beautiful province of New Brunswick, and impulsively booking a trip somewhere more exotic this summer. But then I see an article like this, and am reminded of all the sights I have yet to see here in NB! Perhaps I will make it to a few of those majestic waterfalls this summer.

A couple of other random thoughts…

Are you going to Area 506? This year’s line-up look fantastic! We have our tickets – hope to see you there!

I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this book. I love the idea of simplifying things and enjoying little moments, as they unfold, rather than striving for perfection.

As you can see by these images, I splurged on a Gathre mat. It is gorgeous and it will be coming everywhere with me this summer!

What are your weekend plans? Other than a possible visit to the Kingston Farmers Market & a drive in the country to the MNO pottery sale on Saturday, I will be celebrating my sweet niece’s birthday. If the weather cooperates, I have a little picnic planned as a date night for my darling. The weather has been moody, so here’s hoping it works out!

Oh and by the way… new summer series coming soon to the blog – our city¬†out loud (I will be featuring the stand up people, places and things of the great city of Saint John)!


P.S. Loving  The Maritime Edit magazine. Well done! Love the look, the content, the size and the texture of the pages! Not to mention that the work of my talented uncle is featured in the Home Picks section (check out the beautiful saddle seat stools).
