finally, finally... our summer is starting to unwind and martin & i are finding a nice little groove for ourselves. because honestly, this summer has been a little nuts. we've been working seven days a week (most weeks) and sometimes well into the wee-hours. 12 hour work days? yikes. in celebration of this week's slowing schedule we've been treating ourselves to some good summer livin': picnics, afternoons at our local pub... and, i even made a trip to the hair salon for a little chop, chop. i went a lot shorter. yay! i'll be sure to share photos with you early next week.

this sweet little picnic spot has turned into such a fun + annual tradition for us. talk about ultimate relaxation too. we had such an awesome time sprawling out on our blanket, eating the most delicious salad, and staring up at the trees. i also caught up on a little reading. i just picked up a new book called "roadie: my life on the road with coldplay." a really fun and light read. martin snacked on some blackberries - our neighbourhood is surrounded with them. and scout? well, he slept and mooched food off of us. apparently, he digs salad! ;)
