So after a two week break without internet, a proper washing machine or cable, I am back. I spent two weeks at my beloved cottage and managed to forget my camera charger. I did take some good pictures of my dear old cottage. It was built almost 60 years ago as a one year wedding anniversary gift from my Grandfather to my Grandmother. There were an original group of friends The O'Brien's (me), The Jeffery's (old family friends) and The Quirk's (Old family friends) They helped each other built three cottage's and every time I look at my I see a love letter from a young man to a young woman. Something that's held up through the years and stood the test of time. Even now we are still friends with the Quirk's and Jeffery's and generations come and go my grandfather's love and devotion never leaves. I only took pictures of the inside because it is the hub of activities for the youth of the island. There are small little things that just stick out and make you smile. Here are just a few to (hopefully) put a grin on your face.

Yesterday I went on a pilgrimage downtown to the Eaton Centre, I went with my friend Dakota not thinking I would buy anything, but I stumbled upon this beautiful silk shirt dress on sale at none other than Urban Outfitters! I couldn't pass it up. There is no reason for me to buy something like this in this weather but the uselessness of this item made me need it more if anything. I also discovered after the fact that I could wear it to the dinner gala I'm headed to when I leave for Europe in just over two weeks. When I got home I was inspired and set about finding other secret gems I could use on my trip. I found a great long gold chain that I hung with a collaboration of pendants and rings, and I great black leather belt with these big circular silver things. I hope this extreme heat will pass soon so that I can wear my shirt dress! Here are my less that stunning pictures of more than stunning items.

Hello hello I am so sorry for the lack of regular posts but I have just been out of the range of wireless internet for so long. I got back from my cottage today and I have to say it was wonderful. Though I saw most of it through the lense of a camera. The weather has been steamy and hot, and aside from almost flashing the people on my dock while trying to mount a tube and having lost a turquoise earring to the depths and darkness of the lake, I have nothing to complain about. Even the fact that I can't move at a pace faster than a turtle on account of how stiff my legs are from tubing can't taint my excitement with life. Here are a few of the pictures I took at my cottage, I hope the magic isn't lost on you.
