It's a long weekend here in Canada and boy do we love our long weekends, especially this one. This is our official 'welcome summer' weekend. Open the cottage, roast marshmallows, camp kinda weekend. Fish, garden, bbq, kick back relax kinda weekend. We squish mosquitos and blackflies with our bare hands, wipe it on our clothes and carry on.
We open our pools, sit by the lake and clink our beer bottles, last one in the 20c (68f) water is a WUSS, you won't go in the water????
Well, then you aren't really Canadian...
You should return to work on Tuesday with a sunburnt scalp, mosquito bites and a hangover, you'll vow never to do it again...well, until the July 1st celebrations anyways. Did I forget to mention, someone always gets hurt? A finger gets crushed in a door while chasing each other around with a bucket of cold water, tossing horseshoes someone gets whacked in the shin, a rusty dock nail in your foot, baseball to the forehead.... something always happens!
I forgot to mention, all the celebrations are because it's the late
Queen Victoria's Birthday.
I don't think I've ever really celebrated her birthday unless of course you consider the entire weekend a birthday party and beer pong is just one of the games. Hmmmm, burgers, hot dogs, pizza and games.....
maybe I have been celebrating all along.
HAVE FUN & STAY SAFE!

This is my Mom and she is beautiful, inside and out and I've written about her HERE before. My Mom is incredible and I believe the older I get and the more life I experience, the more I appreciate her. My Mom has been there to light my darkest days, she lifts me when I'm down and she is by far my biggest cheerleader, she is my rock and my inspiration. Mom is opinionated, stubborn and she doesn't hold back, she's passionate about what she believes is right - she is perfect and I love her.
I LOVE you MOM!! xoxox
I wanted to post a picture of Mom & I when i was a child but all my pictures are packed away while I'm in transit.......one day. xoxoxo

My sister and her family are in Hawaii (soooo jealous!) spending a

The sun grows warmer, the grass grows greener
