Summer 2011 Plans

This is my last official day living in the city of Hamilton, or as I like to call it, the Armpit of Ontario. Yes I’ve had some incredible times here, no, I don’t particularly like the city in itself. Especially since I am the complete opposite of a city girl. I like quiet lakes, and clean beaches, and stars, and sleeping outside, and hay fields and damp forests and fresh air. I love fresh air. Hamilton, you lack that.

Hamilton was sort of my personal hell. But that’s okay. I learned so much and met awesome people. It all evened out in the end. :)

This summer is going to be unreal. For work, I’m focusing solely on photography. I’ve got a couple weddings booked, some local business promo shoots, and a ton of portrait sessions. I don’t even consider this work, it’s all fun.

Becky and I are going to see Taylor Swift in June. Josh is driving us down to Detroit (but secretly he loves Taylor Swift and is delighted to be coming along to the concert).

Becky, Rachel, Rebecca and I (Rebecca’s boyfriend and Josh are coming too) are going on a canoe trip in Muskoka for a few days. McCrae Lake. Rachel and I did a week long camping trip on McCrae 4 years ago. The lake is gorgeous… clear blue and surrounded by tall pines and rocky cliffs. We had a little run in with a rattle snake and a tornado though, but that’s why we’re bringin’ the boys along.

I’m going out to British Columbia for a bit in July. As most of you know, I worked for two summers out there at Stillwood. I miss my friends. :( Soooo I’m going to see them. Cannot freaking wait.

The rest of my days will be spent at my cottage and Sauble Beach. My cottage is only 5 minutes away from my house on Chesley Lake. (Josh and I will actually be living there after we get married for a while. Free rent, hot tub, a lake, boats… beyond stoked.)

From now until September my parents are giving me my own apartment space above the garage in our house. Once I’m all moved in and set up, I’ll do a blog post showing you how it looks. My mom and I have been brainstorming decorating ideas for the past couple weeks. We were even going to bust out the ceiling and put some skylights up there so I can star-gaze in bed. Buuut dad says no. I don’t blame him.

Oh! My goats are home. They spend their winters at our friends’ barn so they don’t die of hyperthermia at our house. But now Junie, Bella and Peaches are back, and ready to burst with little goat babies. Blog post on that will be coming soon too. Be prepared. ;)

I better finish packing. All the dust being stirred up in my apartment is giving me hives. It’s nasty.

Next time I write I’ll be tucked away in my cozy apartment in the country side. I’ll talk to you guys later.

PS I recently teamed up with an online magazine called Chords. They wanted me to shoot some spring 2011 looks, so I did. Check it out. And view it full screen for the full effect. Thanks to Sara Rozalina for the opportunity!
