precious moments

This is the kind of post I will probably be making at least once a month; just some quick shots from days that hold special memories for me; whether it's walking around the neighborhood, staying in and watching the rain, every day has magic in it and I want to do my best to capture these memories.

back bows

This week has been filled with loss and hardships and honestly I figured I should blog to distract myself and so here is a post. I've been taking walks around the neighborhood which is lovely because every street is stacked with old houses and lovely gardens. I recently purchased this dress, which honestly I only bought because 1) it was on sale 2) the back is so cute. But now that I've worn it, I'm definitely smitten. The material is quite dainty which I like, and it will be easy to layer up when autumn comes ^.^

stratford gardens

A couple of weeks ago, Gavin and I took a trip. We'd been planning it for a while and so when the time came to go, I was beyond excited. We took the train from toronto to Stratford (it had been about 4 years since I was last there) and went to see "The three musketeers"  which was also wonderful. Despite  all the planning, I ended up keeping my camera in the hotel room when we did our exploring, which I immediately regretted; There was so much beauty everywhere, and so I could only capture a couple of shots with my iphone; which is better than nothing I suppose. Anyway, we definitely want to make it an annual thing, and I'm already excited to go back!

cool and comfortable

These past couple of days have been fantastic for relaxing and spending time with family and close friends. I spent a good day taking nature walks and capturing some great nature shots with my camera. When I am venturing out into the woods or a more natural area, I tend to keep my pretty dresses in the closet and trade them in for something that won't get so easily caught in branches and become torn. I'm actually very fond of these denim/crochet shorts and light sweater; I plan on wearing them alot in the fall.

beach days

Like everyone else, one of my favorite pass-times in the summer is definitely going to the beach. I'm definitely lucky this year since my current house is literally a five minute walk to the beach, so as you can imagine I've been spending alot of time there. These are just a few snap shots taken by my sister and I on one of those many beach days. It's already starting to cool down and I'm hoping I could still get a couple more days relaxing on the beach before fall!

dustland fairytale


 I have way too many white/lacy dresses, but I can never stop myself from buying them even now. I paired it with my new and adorable owl purse and was off to run my errands for the day. I am also wearing the flower crown that I wore at my parent's wedding when I was young ^.^
Anyway, this week is flying by, and I'm really excited for the weekend. Hopefully there will be alot of adventures!

strawberry fields forever

A couple of weeks ago, Gavin and I visited leisure farms to do a bit of Strawberry picking! This was actually my first time, and it was so lovely. As you can tell by my photos, it was absolutely beautiful out, and the strawberries were perfect. This is definitely something I'd like to take part in every summer from here on in.
