As I write this, I’m standing in my bedroom, sleep-deprived, time-poor and surrounded by half-unpacked suitcases. I’ve just returned from an 11-day trip to North America, and I couldn’t have had a better time. I showed you a bit from my time at home last week, and today I’ll share what I was up to during the second half of my holiday.
1 Road Trip! Driving cottage-bound from Ottawa is one of my favourite things to do. The further north you go, the more beautiful the trees, water and hills become. Old friends make this trip even better.
2,3 My friend’s cottage in la belle province. I gotta say, I do not mind waking up to these views.
4 The cottage itself is also pretty spectacular. An older, log cabin style building linked with a stunning glass extension means the best of both worlds.
5 From one extreme to another, here’s me and my best friend chatting on the street outside her NYC apartment a couple days later. We get pretty silly together, but it’s always a good time.
6 On Friday we had a real ladies’ day- shopping on Madison Avenue, followed by massages at Bliss Spa.
7 My wonderful friends and their “daughter” Lou. Hey- families come in all shapes and sizes!
8 Saturday afternoon was spent with magazines, cold drinks and good company in Central Park. A must for any time I visit my (second) favourite city.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. What’s been going on in your world?
