1. Behind The Woods
This wood-working duo went to my university and I can’t get over the things they create. Their website has lots more and they do custom pieces too. Seriously, beautiful or beautiful?
2. Working Outside
I’m working at an aerial park at Camp Fortune this summer and I am so thankful to be amidst trees all day. I feel like I’m soaking up summer and it’s so nice to come home from work without feeling like I missed out on the sunshine. If you’re in the area, you should come do the course… it’s super fun!
3. “My Story” by Elizabeth Smart
This was the book we discussed at our most recent book club meeting and I’m really glad I read it. It’s the story of Elizabeth Smart, who was abducted from her home when she was 14 and held captive for 9 months before being rescued. I will never be able to fathom what it would be like to go through such an experience but hearing the story in her voice is probably the closest I’ll ever come.
4. Peanut Butter Runner Workouts
Whenever I’m lacking workout inspiration I go to this blog. She’s a personal trainer, yoga instructor and amazing blogger. The workouts she posts are so varied and I haven’t done a single one that I didn’t love. I do this one a lot:
5. Dragon Boat Racing Festival
Along with the Dragon Boat Racing going down in Ottawa this weekend, there’s a great lineup of free shows four nights in a row. They’re all Canadian artists and last night Yukon Blonde headlined to open things up. Such a good show – we can’t wait for the next few nights! Nothing says summer to me more than outdoor live music.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?!
