the best thing about making them.

Summer is here. That means the next couple of months will be full of exciting days out, endless sunshine, and a carefree attitude. Ahh, the beauty of the summer season. Excited? Me? Absolutely. Being honest, the winter and spring were a little so-so for me. That makes me even more eager for summer. So far....things have started off very well. There have been get togethers with friends, lots of family time, and even an adventure or two with my husband. Which brings me to today's post. I wanted to give you a glimpse of my life lately. 

Visiting The Toronto Zoo. It is always nice when my hubby has the weekend off. (Even though I do like having the apartment to myself every now and again.) On a recent weekend....he decided that we were going to go to the zoo. Well we did and it was so much fun. There were a ton of beautiful animals to see - and we even ran into some friends throughout the day. The trip to the zoo was a great way to kick-start the return of summer. 

Hanging Out With My BFF. Another great way to enjoy the summer season? Spending time with friends. Luckily, I have been able to do that a few times so far. My friend and I went to a Blue Jays game (which was a lot of fun. Even though the lost) and to a movie (Neighbors 2....SO funny). Fingers crossed that those get togethers were only the beginning. After all, there is a whole summer of fun to look forward to.

Celebrating My Mom's Birthday. Like I mentioned earlier....there has been a lot of family time recently. Between Father's Day (where we went to Denny's to celebrate. Always a good idea) and my Mom's birthday (I ordered her a custom Minnie Mouse cake. We also went to see Finding Dory and even did some shopping afterwards)...I have seen my loved ones more often than usual. That has been a really wonderful way to enjoy the season.

It is hard to believe that we are already in July. It feels like only yesterday we were celebrating the start of spring. On the bright side? There is still plenty of summer to enjoy. I am already making plans and looking forward to upcoming events. 

What have you been up to lately? Is there anything you are looking forward to?
