Home Sweet Home… Bitter Sweet

So this is my “Wrapping it up” post while we drive home. Unfortunately, I got so caught up in the madness of the roadtripping that i slipped on the blogging stuff. It was a combo of being so sleepy and my phone never having enough juice in it- so my pictures are scattered between my iPhone, Nick’s iPhone, his camera and mine. 

Ohhh yes- and this also got in the way…
Funny enough that as we drive home..and get closer to our destination- the weather gets worse. If thats not a tell tale sign that we should pull a U-turn and skeedaddle back to the beautiful ocean views,  I don’t know what is. 
This was the low tide quick shot- classic.
Our last few days have been a combination of drives and camps and sites…with little shopping extraggavanzas weasel’d amongst them. The last week seemed to have happened so fast that it really has started to mix and meld. Nick and I were trying to track where we had stayed and whether it was hotel or campsite..and we were getting confused. Mostly, we sat there with counted fingers and confused looks on our faces until we just gave up. 
Maxing out the cheesiness for day 10.
Within the last 10 days, we have travelled 5 provinces. New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Quebec and our home, Ontario.
This was our last food stop- we love Mexican so much we Mexicant help ourselves but to dig in immediately- obviously missing the foodie pic opp.
It would be impossible for my to choose my favourite. Each had its own unique aspects that made them incredible. I’d need to break it down into a list of silly things like food, scenery, accommodations etc… and let’s be honest- no one cares that much lol
This was def one of my fav’s… But just one. 
10 days is the most amount of consecutive days we have ever spent together and we are still happy and alive. We’ve definitely learned a lot about each other and those quirks and quarks make me more loveable..ughh i meant…make me love him more. 
Next week: School Starts.
Bitter Sweet. I’m excited to move back to the big city and start school but this summer flew by. I am going to miss home- i’m a baby when it comes to leaving my sometime- it has my heart. This trip back home has me thinking about the next big thing- packing AGAIN. 
Coming up: unpacking and repacking lol…unfortunately this will include endless loads of laundry. Those days of jealousy are gone…now I just assume you feel so bad for me and are going to offer to do it for me 🙂

Summer Update!

This summer has been spectacular.

Moving home from Toronto was quite the adjustment.
Going from being a full time student living with friends to moving home under my mothers roof could have gone worse. It also could have gone better. It really was all about adjusting. Adjusting my sleeping schedule, my relationships struggled and…well basically everything.

The hardest transition must be my relationship.
Being in Toronto forced a mind frame that was ok with a long distance relationship.
Coming home was hard for us because we couldn’t figure out how to navigate our lives that we had become so accustom to apart and now having all this time when we didn’t need to travel an hour and pre plan a week in advance to see each other — well it was a difficult change but we are working with it and better than ever.
I was once told that if you can make it through a few years in a long distance relationship, you will make it through everything. AND I BELIEVE IT!

This is NOT a flattering picture but it is one full of Love

It has been a wild summer and my computer decided it didn’t like the location changed and was a real jerkstore when I moved- decided it have like an internal temper tantrum forcing my hand to reformat. Everything is back up and running *knock on wood- literally knocked on my bed frame – & now i am able to update and get back on track with this blog, checking emails, tackling my evergrowing list of e-books, and recipe hunting and reviewing. 
Here are a few of the things I have been up to in the last few months on my summer..
Toby and my main squeeze on a hike.
(it is hard to spot Toby – look for the bushy tail)

Gorgeous flowers in our garden.
How DELISH do these look? Picked from our backyard cherry treeeee
My FAVOURITE moment of the summer – I will actually probably do an entire post on this– my incredible mum not only kicked cancers ass- she rocked the Ride2ConquerCancer!!!
Going back and seeing these photos make me incredible happy but also makes me feel like this summer is flying by.
Every weekend has been filled with one thing or another & I am really motivated now to document and share more. Obviously some things wont make it up and out into the interweb but there are some great moments and silly things I love sharing and showing!!!

Talk soon.
