What happened

Hi! I hope you've been enjoying your summer!

I must say, it was nice taking a couple of months off from blogging. Even though I love writing, I haven't taken much time to write during the summer. I've spent most of my time living and preparing. It's been somewhat of a busy time for me.

We had family barbecues. We took a family day-trip to Upper Canada Village, another to the MacKenzie King Estate, and one to Britannia Beach. My mom, my daughter, Mr. Romantic and I had a weekend in Kingston where we visited Fort Henry, took a boat cruise, and visited Boldt Castle. I painted my daughter's new closet and changed the flooring.

Mr. Romantic and I went to see movies, spent time out on patios, took walks and hikes, and had a last minute camping trip to Kearney Lake in Algonquin Park in July. It was my first time camping since I was a kid. I loved it! In fact, I loved it so much that we went on a second camping trip last weekend to end off summer and we invited my daughter and her friend to come along with us. One beautiful and clear night on that last camping trip, Mr. Romantic and I took a walk to the beach to go look at the stars. I'd never seen so many! Breathtaking!

It's good to take a break once in a while, even from something you truly enjoy. You come back refreshed and, in my case, inspired. I've been contemplating taking on a new creative writing project that I'd be starting in the next few months. Maybe for 2017.

Throughout all of this, I've also been planning a move. Yes, that's right – I'm moving again. I'll tell you more about it in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, here are a few images from my time off.

This was our Kearny Lake camping site backyard in July.
Swimming in Kearny Lake made me feel as happy as I used to feel swimming at the cottage as a kid.

I really hope you were also able to have fun and recharge this summer!
