Life lately 21.8.15

Well, life lately is busy as per usual! This week has been a lot of fun, but we've also had a lot going on! We met with our real estate agent on Thursday, so for the few days before that I was gutting my house and cleaning every nook and crevice. Not to toot my own horn, but I was very pleased with how our home looked for our presentation, and the moving ball is finally rolling! I currently work at a self storage facility so we're getting free storage so that process will be starting soon... and then we just have to keep looking for our dream home! Last week I took a mini vacation with my mom down to Kenora, Ontario to visit my grandma for a few days and left Kyle and the doggies behind. My mom grew up in Kenora and so we spent most of our summers there at the house she grew up in right on Lake of the Woods. The place honestly hasn't changed one little bit! We walked down to the train museum and Dairy Queen that's been there since my mom was little and I loved it. It was so nice to spend some time reminiscing and hanging out one on one with my momma and grandma. They're definitely the two most important influences in my life and I'm so thankful I took the time to visit.

Isn't this the sweetest metaphor! A lonely little flower growing straight out of a crack in the concrete.

I then came home to the snuggliest reunion ever.

And of course we had to make a trip to Grandpa Ken's (that's what the doggies call my dad) to have a run and Jack decided to hop in the horse trauf to cool down.

And the last thing I discovered when I arrived home was a handful of perfectly ripe cherry tomatos from my garden box!! You can bet I was the happiest little gardener ever.

I hope you take the time to snuggle with your loves, spend time with your loved ones, and play in the sun.

Take good care, loves!

A day to breathe...

The other day, I needed a breather. We currently live in a side by side in the city, but both Kyle and my heart are stuck in the countryside. It's getting harder and harder to make time to be outside when it takes a minimum 30 minute drive to find nature as far as the eye can see. Were so lucky to be able to escape to my dad's house in the country when we need it & when the doggies need a run (which is often) but I just keep dreaming of the day that I wake up every single morning and take the doggies out for a long stroll in nature.

So... The house hunting begins! Meanwhile, here's some pictures of this gorgeous day in the beautiful country with my spunky little pets.

The colours of this place still amaze me

The neighbour is taking huge rocks out of his hay field, and the doggies thought it would be fun to play in the clay (it was cute until I had to bring them home... hehe)

Take good care friends!!
