A few weeks ago Rye and I headed into the mountains to get some more coveted shots of Moraine Lake before they close the road for the year. To our surprise, there was already a plethora of snow blanketing the roads and the mountains. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the mountains in the snow (it is probably one of the most beautiful sites there is and also so iconically Canadian), but it is not a site I want to see in mid-September. Is anyone else as sad as I am about the sudden end of summer?

Another Big Life Update
So here it is, last I mentioned about my career I had decided to leave work due to the unhappiness and stress the environment was causing me. While I mostly left with little to no plans, there was one thing I kept from the story. During that time I took a long look at how my life was, would be and what I wanted from life. Often while we are in University there is so much confusion and on top of the assignments, coursework, and exams we are also expected to figure out how the rest of our life should look in a four-year span. Well for me, I was good at economics and finance, so it just seemed like a natural fit for my life and what I should do. But often just because we are good at something does not mean it is what we are destined or meant to do.

Over the last few months I have taken some time to really focus on spending time with family, friends and enjoying the things that summertime brings. As most know by now, summer is by far my favorite season and every year as the days grow shorter and the weather begins to turn cold once more, I again feel sad to see summer go. No matter how much sun and time enjoying the nice weather I try to soak up, it never even seems to be close to enough to get me through the colder months.

Last week, Rye and I decided to spontaneously go on a picnic. I think we were both bored of sitting at home and eating dinner the same way we always do. And with the weather being so nice, it was hard to pass up the idea of getting out of the house and enjoying nature for an evening. I remember growing up as a kid dreaming about sitting on a gingham blanket and enjoying a meal with my partner out in the sun. I am pretty sure it was every single romantic comedy that came out during that time that made me think it was some sort of relationship milestone or right of passage.

I have been struggling for quite some time (since moving really) on nailing down where home is for me. It has been a weird transition in my life because upon moving out this time it became very clear that it was more permanent than the times before. I was not off to school and returning back. It was me moving forward with my life and away from the childhood home, where I grew up and the place where I largely became who I am today. Moving was also a big step in my life and relationship with Ryan; it was really the beginning of planning a future together.

I have been having a moment with simple dresses lately as they are one of the easiest items to throw on quickly without having to think too much. When summer comes around, while I love the warm weather (and would rarely complain), I am always looking for quick pulled together looks. It is also an easy excuse for me to wear the overgrown number of dresses in my closet … without needing to pair them with tights (because let’s be honest there are few clothing items worse than tights).
