Long weekends are the bomb. Leading up to one, everything is just a bit busier. There is a sense of urgency in the air that reminds me of scurrying hamsters on a wheel, except with the point being to actually get somewhere and relax.
My mom shares a birthday with Canada and July 1st has always been associated with her special day. This next week is going to be quite hectic. Tonight I have a shoot with some real estate agents to complete a long anticipated printed brochure. I'm packing for an out of town wedding with my girl, Charity Swords and some friends. We are Sauble Beach bound at the crack of dawn on Friday morning to scope out the wedding location which, I'm told is a fabulous secret garden and the coolest location to shoot. We're also hoping to get in some beach time.
Sunday, Michael will pick me up, animals in tow and car packed for a week away at a waterfront cottage. We simply cannot wait, although I must admit I'm bringing my computer to do some editing in case it rains, sans internet access of course. When we arrive home, I have to throw together a 40th birthday party for my husband that night.
It's going to be a fabulous and busy summer. If I am behind on my blog posts, it's because I'm away with no access to the web but I'll be sure to absorb myself in writing and photos while I'm smack in the middle of God's intended paradise. I'll hopefully have a clear head and a lot to say when I return.
For now, have a great and safe long weekend, drink, dance, relax, sleep in or do whatever your heart wants to do. We lust after these extended holidays all year long. Now it's time to enjoy it.
p.s. If you like drinking Caesar's (I don't), check out Michael's latest blog post, sponsored by Mott's Canada, leave a comment and he will randomly select someone to win a Caesar kit of your own.
