Friday Faves iv: concerts, gorgeous art and summer jobs

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?!

  2. I had the opportunity to meet and hear Elizabeth speak at my past employer in 20013/2014. She has really done well considering all that she went through during that kidnapping. I forgot about the book…so thanks for blogging about it. I will have to get it.

    I’m also an RD student!! I found your blog through Kath Eats Real Food. I love Canada…!!

    My blog needs Sooo much work, I don’t even know where to begin.


    • Oh that must have been such a powerful thing to sit in on. Aside from her incredible story, I was very impressed with her book considering her lack of background as a writer (as far as I know, anyway).
      So exciting that you’re on the path toward becoming an RD also :) I think your blog looks great!! But I do understand feeling overwhelmed by all the changes you would like to make. I try to just have a one-step-at-a-time attitude.
