SHARING A QUICK UPDATE ON ALL THINGS CURRENTLY…
Happy Summer friends! We’re just settling into our first full week of Summer break around here and we’re already enjoying the slower pace and adventure that Summer brings. After the routine and schedules of Fall & Winter, we all really enjoy the freedom that comes with Summer. Slow, quiet mornings, afternoons packed with fun & adventure and days that stretch just little longer, allowing us to really squeeze the most out of our short Summers.
Although we’re only really a few days in, we’ve already managed to sneak in all sorts of adventures – a weekend of mountain biking in Fernie, BC, several trips around the lake on our paddle boards and even a 38km run (my furthest distance EVER). It’s already been a pretty exciting Summer around here! We still don’t really have much in terms of plans for the Summer ahead, – I think we’re all just looking forward to floating through the days and leaving our schedules open to whatever adventures and opportunities come our way.
Now, here’s a quick little update of where we are currently…
Reading: I’m only a few chapters in, but here’s what’s on my nightstand right now.
Writing: I’m still working through my 5 Minute Journal over coffee every morning.
Needing: Still needing to get that new primary bedroom light ordered, but I keep changing my mind! Check out my current fave here.
Creating: A plan to start work on our new garage build (FINALLY!). After a whole lot of back and forth with our structural engineer perfecting every little detail, we’ve finally got some stamped drawings in hand and we’re seeking out quotes to start building!
Planning: In addition to the garage build, we’re also toying around with the idea of tackling some landscaping projects this Summer too – the driveway and back sidewalk need a bit of work (or a total re-do is probably more accurate) and I’d love to get a few new trees planted!
Loving: These brilliant little cups are SO perfect for Summer! They’re so handy to tote around and they keep our drinks ice-cold (or my coffee hot) all day long.
Wearing: All the dresses. There’s nothing easier to throw on in the morning, or more cool & breezy on a hot Summer day than a simple sundress (I just ordered up this flowy number to add to my Summer dress staples).
On my wish list: I’ve been shopping for a new dining table for ages now and this one is quickly moving to the top of my wish list. I think it would look amazing with some white upholstered chairs at either end.
Working for me right now: Slow Summer days.
What’s not: Trying to get any work done with this amazing Summer weather calling me outside.
Anticipating: A Summer full of adventure.
I’d LOVE to hear where are you currently! Let me know what’s new and exciting in the comments below.
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day my friends!
