Summer Days

I found this wee oak leaf on the ground, passed by it, and then took two steps back to pick it up because I loved it so.

My toes need repainting but that would mean I wouldn’t have as much time at the pool with this awesome guy.

I hope you’re having a lovely Summer. Oscar is in less camps this Summer than ever before – which has turned out to be an awesome thing for us, because he’s getting so much time at my Mom’s pool practicing swimming, and plus have I told you…. But the age 8 is the best. Like seriously, he’s funny, awesome, so fun to be with. So I’m soaking in the days of summer with him, even if it is watching him play video games. I kind of love this Summer. The backyard is still a work in progress, I can’t wait to share more pics. xoxo Linds

to the coast

We packed up the child, loaded the car and headed off on a road trip across Canada – destination, the coast. This Summer it is the East. I’m looking forward to doing the West sometime soon. I have salty hair, a child that is experiencing an amazing summer, and a husband that is an expert at navigating roads and booking hotels. You can follow along on Instagramย or follow the hashtag #ToTheCoast2017. Now to fall asleep to the Ocean waves crashing on the beach.

mini getaway

I escaped to our family cottage last week – It turns out I hadn’t enrolled Oscar in any camps (oops!) and work commitments were light, so I packed up my laptop, Oscar, some clothes and made a beeline for the cottage. For the amount of time that I grumble that technology is all consuming, it’s also what allowed me to pickup and work remotely from a little cabin on the water. For the mini getaway my Mom joined Oscar and I, and then for the long weekend Aubrey came up too and, my sister. (My brother is busy getting the restaurant in Peterborough open so couldn’t come – if you’re in Peterborough, and stop by the brewery or restaurant ask for Pete and tell him I told you to say hi!)ย  Continue Reading →

Around the house

The house smells of gingerbread and pine tree, and Oscar lost his two front teeth so we’ve been singing and listening “All I want for Christmas Are my Two Front Teeth” on repeat. Somehow, losing those two front teeth for Christmas is what is making it the perfect Christmas for me, as Oscar LOVES that song, so it’s just ridiculously perfect. We’ve been baking, reading Christmas stories and today is his Christmas concert at schoolย and I’m going early to try to get the front row. I hope all of your homes are filled with the smell of baking and the sounds of laughter. xo
