Summer time was great! It's always great but this year, it was an exceptionally good one and I definitely can attribute that to great friends, amazingly good music, beautiful fashions, awesome scenery - and saving the best for last - loving family! In that order!!
Friends are key to having a great summer because you need people to just chill with while you all go patio hopping while sipping on delectable alcohol-infused concoctions while savoring yummy platters of decadent desserts and yummy cheese platters. That is what friends are for! And if one decides that maybe patio or bar-hopping is for another night, and a last-minute BBQ is instead put into motion, you know that everyone will be down for something low-key and chilled. No-fuss and no hassle! Everyone pitches in for meat, alcohol, and dessert ... you name it, and finding a spot to put all this together is never hard because their home is your home! LOVE IT!! I spent some time in Halifax, NS this summer and I enjoyed every single minute of it because of my nearest and dearest …ie. The people who helped me get through university. I enjoyed spending time with some of the best people I know and it was two-years-too-long overdue! From the time I was picked up at the airport, to when I was dropped off, it was a non-stop ride of catching-up, laughs, eating and lovely moments. Too many selfies (which is never possible), too many trips to the grocery store and liquor store, and just a lot of real down-time with my comrades from another lifetime that I hadn’t forgotten. Together we are a collective force of nature because our personalities are so different, yet we collaborate together in so much of life. It was a beautifully painted portrait of chaos and every moment was amazing. It is hard to make friends, but once you find true friends, it’s harder to let them go.
