Summer Breeze.

The days are growing longer and the heat is almost to the point of unbearable. There are no corners to which one can find a cool spot to rest in Manitoba. But, the (few) trees are full, the flowers have bloomed, the construction has started (it cannot it escaped!) and the farmers have been busy tending to their crops. 

The sound of laughter flows through the open windows that catch the summer breeze. 
The season of endless opportunities; of staying up late and catching up with friends; of short-lived loves that will be unforgettable.

The season of timeless memories.

"When we speak of magic
we should speak of those moments that
 were the purest
When the stars were bright 
and when the laughter was loud
Those are the most
moments in life."

The happy life.

Of this be sure:
You do not find the happy life
... You make it.

Destination: Brandon Hills.

It's been a long time coming but Mark and I finally ventured out of our cave today.
Destination: Brandon Hills.
Yes, there are "hills" in Manitoba.
Trekking through the Brandon Hills trails felt almost like home. 
It was beautiful to see TREES (haha) and look around at the unfamiliar plants. 
The smell of green was filling up my nose and the only thing missing was the ocean at the end.
I know many (if not all) of you will probably never be in Manitoba or at least, the Brandon area, but if you find that you have gotten lost on your way to somewhere way cooler and more exciting, I would highly suggest taking a minor detour south and stretching your legs with a leisurely stroll through Brandon Hills!

Shouting World.

Early mornings.

My mornings consist of this little 'angel' squawking at me starting around 5am and continuing until I finally get annoyed and get up. I am not a morning person by choice but I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

What is something that annoys you but you wouldn't give it up?

Take the moment.

 Don't wait for the perfect moment,
take the moment 
and make it perfect.

The seasons change.

As long as the song lasts.

June 1st. My favourite day of the year.

Not only is it marking the half-way point of the year but it is also the day that I said 'I do' to my best friend.
Two years have flown by and it still feels like we are dating. The butterflies never go away and I have a permanent smile on my face (which causes some discomfort but I'm cool with it)!
God really made the perfect match for me and I thank Him every day for bringing Mark into my life. We may have met at a bar but love blooms in strange places (and it makes for a silly story).

To many more years of happiness and love!

"When meet the one 
who changes the way
your heart beats,
dance with them to that rhythm
for as long as the song lasts."
