Highs and Lows

August 9, 2013

highsandlowsAll in all this week has been pretty great. It felt like the perfect balance of time spent with the ones I love and time spent at work or doing something productive. On Monday evening, my aunt, uncle and cousin had my sisters and I over for dinner that included appetizers, salad, salmon and a delicious cake that my aunt gave me the recipe to. She also gave me the sweetest picture of a quote from Winnie the Pooh that reads “Some people care too much, I think it’s called love.” On Wednesday my other aunt, cousin and sisters all went to Fisherman’s cove and spent the day looking in the cute little shops and walking along the boardwalk. I just love when weeks work out like this, because as the summer is winding down and I’m getting ready to go back to Toronto, I will have these memories to last me until I’m home again.
