**CONTEST IS CLOSED***
Today is the First Day of Summer! Instead of a wholly Personal Photo Post Friday I am going to share some photos from a recent visit out to my parents’ home and something else! 😀
Summer is a season many of us frillier or black-wearing sorts don’t really enjoy- humidity and heat don’t mix well with elaborate outfits. That being said, most everyone has something that they love about the season.
Summer to me means visiting my parents’ out on the St.Lawrence river. I spent my summers at our cottage there growing up, and now they have built a house on the land and live there year round. It’s a stunning area- the river is constantly changing and mesmerizing, and the woods and bay they live on are quite beautiful, not to mention the gardens. 🙂
Summer means time in the water (I am a huge fish nerd and love snorkelling). It means laying on the dock my father and I built one summer when I was 10. It’s watermelon eaten on the porch, the gardens in bloom, and stolen days of happy laziness.
To celebrate the first day of this new season we’re throwing a little giveaway today!
