I really feel like I haven’t had time to blog lately – and like I said yesterday, I have so much to talk about right now!! - but I’m MAKING time today, anyways. I mean, it IS We Want To Know Wednesday, after all!
1. Show us in pictures how your summer is going so far:
I consider Canada Day Golf Tourney at the end of May to be the “kick-off” to summer – it didn’t feel much like summer that day, but we had fun anyways!!
My niece Neve turned 1 with a backyard BBQ on June 21st!
On June 22, I went out for dinner & drinks with friends to Fatboy’s in the Market. Friends of ours were playing there, and the music was awesome!
The Sunday School picnic & sack races have definitely been a highlight! (This is me, getting my butt whooped by a bunch of kids!)
I’m happiest when I’m on the water… Out on Jeff & Kerry’s pontoon in June!
My Godson Cowan’s graduation on June 26th – so proud of him!!
Seeing my aunts, uncles & cousins at the Bretzlaff Reunion on June 29th was so much fun! Here are the 7th Generation Bretzlaffs. ;)
Susie & I at Canada Day. Oh, y’know, just hanging with the Peace Tower. ;)
I’ve been having some memorable summer nights at Bluesfest – but by far the most hilarious moment thus far was showing up early for Hunter Hayes on Sunday, and finding out we were there in time for Wu-Tang Clan. Seriously, though. I fit in, right???
As you can see from a lot of these pics… the weather hasn’t exactly been stellar. But that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the summer thus far, and I’m looking ahead to more great times with family & friends in the weeks to come!
2. What is one thing you are never to busy for?
Lately, I’d have to say working out, or walking/jogging. It’s been tougher to fit it in with the busier summer days upon me, and I’ve had to juggle my work-out schedule a bit, but I’ve still managed to fit it in at least five days a week. I feel better when I do it, so I’ve been making it a priority!
Oh, and coffee. Doesn’t matter if I’m running late in the morning, I always make time to get the Keurig goin’…
3. What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
Working!! Typing on my keyboard!!
4. What is the best advice you have ever received?
I don’t know that I could share just one piece of advice, I’ve had many bits of wisdom that have stuck with me over the years…
*Never, ever, ever, ever start smoking.
*This, too, shall pass.
*When everyone else around you is losing their head, try to keep yours. (can’t say I’ve been successful at following that one… I’m a panicker.)
*Don’t be a follower. Take your own path.
*Dance like nobody’s watching.
5. Share some of your favorite quotes:
“Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” – Marilyn Monroe
“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” – Kahlil Gibran
Happy Wednesday, everyone! :)
