A Relaxed One

OKAY ANDIE | IADWM: A Relaxed Onethis is what i got up to

I’m starting a new series on the blog and as the name implies, i will be sharing a day in my life – from the exciting to the mundane. This idea came to mind in an effort to get myself to pick up my camera more often, document day to day life as it is, and test myself on how I can share a day in images with little to no words. This first go was alright. There were parts in the day I wished I had documented, like our delicious homemade fresh rolls dinner and a very hilarious TV setup for our Riverdale/tickle documentary viewing. But ah well! One post at a time.

Photo Diary: Barrie, Ontario

Last Saturday afternoon Ryan and I headed to Barrie to spend the long weekend at his dad’s place. While Barrie may not be the most exciting place in the world, their neighbourhood has a definite cottage vibe to it, making it the perfect escape from the city that is within reasonable distance from Toronto. These photos are from Sunday, which was our only full day there, and the only day we really got up to anything exciting outside of the house/neighbourhood. In the afternoon Ryan drove us around Oro-Medonte, showing me the house his dad used to live in, and the quaint lake side town it is in, which honestly, would be an idyllic place to live. After that we hung out at a small beach for a bit while we waited for Greg (Ryan’s dad) to meet us so we could take a ride on his boat. It had been ages since I had been on a boat so it was really nice, although, a bit cold. It was Gus’ first time on a boat however, so I think when the wind was whipping him in his little face he was a bit confused. He is such an easy going dog though, and he pretty much never gets freaked out byt anything, so he was the perfect little passenger. All in all, it was a weekend with just the right amount of fun and relaxation, and I came back to Toronto in good spirits, although a bit stressed because I neglected checking my emails or really doing anything on the internet, which always means a pile up when you come back to it. But c’est la vie, it’s okay to give yourself a break once in awhile and just ride on a boat.

How was your long weekend? I’d love to hear what you got up to.

Photo Diary: Montreal Part 1

I had such a busy, wonderful time in Montreal. It seems each time I visit I have a different experience that suits all aspects of myself. I’ve had some of my most memorable moments whilst in Montreal – making new friends, letting loose and staying up way past my bedtime because there is too much fun to be had. This time around it was a bit more laid back and relaxed, which is just as well because I wasn’t only there for pleasure (dancing is an exhausting thing, guys). Getting to spend an entire week with Kristen was the best. Going from living with someone and seeing them each and everyday to seeing them only a few times a year is a big bummer, especially when it’s someone as awesome as Kristen. As cheese as it sounds, whenever I spend time with her I feel like the best version of myself. I wish I could take a piece of her with me back to Toronto (okay okay, enough of the sappy sap).

I managed to get quite a few snaps on both my DSLR and iPhone of random things we saw and did during the week, so here is numeraux un.
