Slipping Away

 Can you believe this is the last week of August? I seriously cannot. I kept thinking we had so much summer left, but now it feels like the last little bit is slipping away so quickly. I'm already feeling nostalgic about it! Hopefully we will have a nice and hot September so that we get a little more time. My mission is to take in every single second of summer from now on, I don't want to miss out on any of it! We've still got a couple more trips coming up so it's definitely not over yet.

These photos are from the second set that I shot with Alex (see the last set here) and I love them just as much as the first ones!  I bought this dress from Zara knowing that it will be the perfect transition piece for fall but still perfect for summer. I, of course, had to wear it without anything underneath, but it would be so cute with a crop top for summer or a long sleeved turtleneck for fall. I plan on getting one in a rust orange color, which I think will be perfect with it. But I'm still not ready for that, so for now I will be as free as possible!

I hope you have an amazing Thursday and enjoy the sunshine! xoxo

Feeling Calm

 Good morning! I'm finally settling back into reality after an amazing relaxing weekend out of the city. Ollie and I went to the cabin again and it was exactly what I needed. I swear there is nothing better for the mind than switching off from all technology and truly enjoying each moment.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting up with the beautiful Alexandra Hahn to shoot a couple of photos down at kits beach. I love the natural and calm feel that she captured in these shots -- it really portrays how I'm feeling at the moment. And the best part is that Alex lives like 2 blocks away from me. I think you might be seeing quite a few more photos from her in the future!

Cured

 Hi guys! After having a super not fun Monday, I am feeling quite revitalized after yesterday's activities. It was meant to be a day off, but it quickly filled up and turned into a day of networking with some of the fabulous women from Ladies Who Lunch, fittings and then catching up with my bestie over a glass of wine (for me -- she's got a baby in her tummy). Being around so many positive people yesterday was exactly the cure I needed to end my funk. And now we've decided to go to my favorite place this weekend so I am even more happy! Can't wait for some more relaxing and some serious catch-up time with my air-mattress on the clean lake water.

Don't Leave

 I hate to admit it, but I'm getting that unsettled feeling that summer is coming to an end. We are having beautiful sunny days, but they just aren't quite as hot as they used to be. It's definitely gorgeous out, but I don't exactly want to jump into the water. I also keep seeing all of the fall fashion pop up everywhere and it's hard to not let that get into your mind. I know it's all a trick of marketing, but I'm still not ready! Summer, please don't leave :)

Worth the Effort

 No, we didn't hike up this mountain. Ollie an I had a bit of a low-key weekend as we have both been amping up our workout routines and it's leaving us a little low in the energy department. We did however, drive up! Ollie wanted to check out a new route for a bike ride, so we went on a little drive to check out the roads and see the view. It looks like it is going to be quite the effort to make it up here, but luckily he will be rewarded by a beautiful view once he reached the top. Also, there's snacks up here too!

Vertigo

 I wouldn't say that I'm usually one to be afraid of heights, but even I couldn't escape the vertigo from 400 feet up on this trestle bridge. It's hard to tell from these photos but this thing is HIGH. The fact that there are gaps between the floor planks and no railings kinda helps with the wobbly feeling too. But once you're up there for a couple of minutes, all that dizziness disappears and you can really enjoy the incredible view. I dragged Ollie up this short but steep hike after he had just gone on a 100 km bike ride (and it was one of the hottest days we've had), so I don't think he was too pleased with me but at the end of the day, who can be mad at an experience like this? To be perfectly honest, I didn't expect it to be quite so steep, so my choice of Birkenstocks should probably be avoided, but we made an adventure out of it and had a blast doing it. I'm pretty sure that I was giggling the entire trip down as I was sliding most of the way on my butt. Good thing I was wearing shorts under my dress!

Mais

 Coming back to reality after a long weekend away is always such a struggle. Ollie and I went to the island for the holiday and it was such a perfect getaway. We visited good friends, we explored, we went swimming, we hiked, we ate well, and we got plenty of sunshine. I really can't ask for anything more. Ollie mentioned that I always look so relaxed when I'm on the island and I think he's right. There's something about the slower pace and the energy of the people that speaks to me. I feel truly at home when the pace slows down a little and I can pause to enjoy the smaller things. Things like the most beautiful corn fields that Ollie discovered on a bike ride the day before. I think the island life might be growing on him as well.
