Greetings from the other side of summer!
Most of you are probably looking at me like where have you been? I've been mostly here in Buffalo, NY, and occasionally in Toronto specifically or Ontario in general. Sometimes even back to Seneca Lake.
Summer is also peak construction season, so I've been a tad bit busy at work as we shade into back-to-school and early fall. Speaking of fall, is anybody else as excited for the change in season as I am? I am so ready for layers and flannel and boots and scarves and turning leaves and cool breezes! (I might be zealously ready for fall. Seriously. Let's go.)
Because I've been so terrible at blogging (which is on the to-do list to get better at), let's recap some adventures. (Also, if you're not following me on twitter I would suggest it, because that's where I document a majority of my daily shenanigans.)
I had my first ever Barnes & Noble book signing back in June. I kept the poster from this event and framed it.
My friend Lydia and I had a sweet and colorful Sunday Funday this summer. We'd both had a rough week (and I'd watched a ton of icing videos on Tumblr) and this was the result of an afternoon of baking and decorating.
The eclipse! We weren't in the path of totality (but we will be for the next one) and nobody had eclipse glasses, but when you work in construction, there's usually a welding helmet or two lying around.
This was M's first trip to Toronto (her first time on both a train and a subway) and her first MLS game. We had a ton of fun, and TFC had a 4-0 win against San Jose.
There's also been some extra trips to Rochester to hang out with family and friends, and coming up in a few weeks is my cousin's wedding. So I get to dress up and have a grand old time for that.
Stay on the lookout for dance updates, too. This year I'm climbing even more out of my comfort zone and taking jazz in addition to tap. Jazz is way not in my wheelhouse, but it is fun, and my instructor is very glad that I'm taking her class.
Thanks for sticking with me.
Hope & Kindness,
Thanks for stopping by. Browse. Smile. Giggle. And maybe say hi.
