Today starts a series of guest posts that will take place here and there over the lovely month of August. You can check out the past series that we have done: 30 somethings & Mommy Diaries and luckily for me, I have some very talented and willing readers, friends and blogging friends who were gracious enough to contribute.
I gave two choices of subjects and we'll start with the one with the least entries this week, plus its still summer, so it makes sense.
I thought it would be fitting to start off this post with a list of my wishlist for a perfect summer of vacationing, which also will be a good linkup with Andrea's topic for today, my wishlist. So I'm gonna linkup over there, where you can check out many, many more wishlists.
Now, if one summer would be composed of all these elements, then it would be a perfect summer indeed:
1) Vernon, B.C = my happy place. Enough said.
3) Saskatchewan Lakes- we are so fortunate to have so many beautiful parks nearby. I love going out fishing with Mom and Dad or Dan's parents, but mostly I love jumping off the boat into that cool lake water.
4) Something new: Last summer we took a side trip to Lake Louise/Banff National Park. I love that moment when you get into the mountains and get your first deep inhale of fresh mountain air. Growing up we'd drive through Banff National Park yearly en route to my Aunt's, and my favourite was stopping at Takaka Falls to do a hike. Last year we stopped at Lake Louise and I was floored by the beauty. I will have to get back there and explore more.
5) A Toronto Blue Jays' game- gotta support our team! Usually this means heading out to Toronto where Dan has some work and I love exploring Toronto! This year we're switching it up a bit. More on that in a couple weeks ;)
So there you have it, my wishlist for a perfect summer. Come back tomorrow for our first summertime faves guest post and then next week when we start our second topic; What Love Looks Like. Also- to make this even more exciting, I've added a contest for the Summer Series. Make sure you get an entry or two in!
