summer is here and it was time to celebrate.
it was probably the busiest weekend ever...oooh, but so much fun!
art stroll
friends' 25th year anniversary
fathers' day
women's world cup soccer (woot woot for canada)
summer solstice celebrations
yes... we took it all in and then some!!!
it was so lovely to take part in all the celebrations (all the napping in between helped)
there was so much music, dancing, potlucking and bbq-ing 
everywhere around our city.   
it was so energizing to see friends, family and neighbours, 
dressed in their colourful summer outfits, looking and feeling relaxed and happy.
now a brand new week...
the teens are almost finished with son writes one more provincial this week. 
after all is done, they are both inviting friends over for a backyard paper burning celebration.
with our summer holidays starting this friday, ian is wrapping up loose ends with work.

i have so much to accomplish this week (i really do not like packing...ugh!!!
but i'm feeling optimistic about getting through all of it.  
when i start to get overwhelmed, i repeat to myself
"breathe, erica.... breathe"

wishing you all a wonderful start to your week!!!

  1. Happy Summer to you Erica.
    Wasn't that an awesome fifa game last night? I loved it. The US team plays tonight and I can't wait.
    Packing? Did I miss something? Moving or trip?
    Have a great Monday.

    1. it was a great game...there was much cheering going on over here!!!
      the packing (double ugh!!!) is for a little trip (double yay!!!) next week.

  2. Sounds like a good weekend. exciting!

  3. bubbles! how festive :) I love the photos and the music, I hope all the school work goes well and the paper burning is relaxing. My nephew loved to burn papers when he was young.
