Sweet Summertime

Fact: Summertime is good for the soul.

This is the first summer since High School that I was not working and had no agenda, no real responsibilities and no commitments…  and it was exactly ‘what the doctor ordered’.

This summer I read…

There is nothing I love more than reading a good book in the sunshine. Here are a few of my favorite reads this summer, check them out – you won’t regret it!

The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain

The Promise Girls by Marie Botswick

All The Breaking Waves by Kerry Lonsdale

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Find The Good: Unexpected Life Lessons From A Small-Town Obituary Writer by Heather Lende


This summer I watched…

Sometimes, you just have to binge watch a new series, have a movie marathon and watch a little trashy TV. This summer I obsessed over 3 new favorites.


Law & Order SVU

90 Day Fiancé


This summer I listened…

There is nothing I love more than the array of music festivals the summer season brings. This year, I had to skip my usual round of outdoor music festivals and am still grieving the loss of all the fun (and having serious FOMO), but I will happily settle for Gaelic Storm’s new album Go Climb a Tree in their place.


This summer I visited…

Herkimer with my favorite people for our yearly camping trip! We made s’mores, floated down the West Canada river, laid out under the stars, sang off key, acted like kids and laughed until we lost our voice.


This summer I rested. This summer I refreshed. This summer I relaxed.

How did you spend your summer?
