Remember when I was a blogger and would occasionally get shit done?
HI I'M STILL HERE!
This summer has been a whirlwind to say the least. I got a shiny new job, I turned 24, I booked 3 vacations (stay tuned...blog posts?!), every weekend has been action-packed, and my boyfriend moved in with me (yay!) To say I'm overwhelmed would be an understatement.
I had dinner with my girl Brittney the other night, and we both appear to be in the same boat: we love blogging and are far from over it. However, we are driven in our jobs & are trying to maintain a social life and that seems to get in the way. Basically we're trying reeeeeeal hard not to burn out. Working on it! I still love blogging, I swear!
Once I'm settled with Stefan in our condo and get an actual office set-up, I'm looking forward to working on this blog again. By the way, any office inspo I should be checking out? I'm looking for the perfect desk! Pinterest, get at me.
Here's a look at my life over the past few weeks...starting with this unreal antique market find! Vintage Ray-Bans for $50, alright alright alright! Also, if you're in the Burlington area, you have to check out Aberfoyle Antique Market...so many cool things!
My friend Sara and I have been cooking dinner and watching Shonda night together for years...what do we do when the seasons are over? Still get together and cook (and drink a bottle of wine in honour of Olivia Pope). Check out them grill marks!
Trying to make a straggler peony from my mom's garden bloom, accompanied by my new favourite summer candle.
I went to my first Ribfest!!! So much meat and I smelled like smoke for days. Worth it.
Stefan moved in with me and we had our first fight as roommates...
A much-needed getaway at my friend Sam's cottage, although it turns out there was a bit of a black cloud over the weekend...power outage, flipped jet ski, wet iPhone, bad sunburn. At least there was coffee (and wine)!
A wild Riley appeared in the creek!
Wild raspberries from my parents' house. Totally not poisonous...I think?
All I do is take pictures of food. Delicious anniversary dinner at Joey Sherway! I am such a sucker for Baja fish tacos...and beer. Always beer.
