Life lately

How's your summer going? Ours is wetter and cooler than what's normal, which means everything is so much greener than it usually is! True, the green is mostly weeds and not grass, but it's still a novelty to be surrounded by green this time of year in the semi-desert. 

I've been working more than usual, but I've also squeezed in a few fun outings! Last week we visited our grandson Axel, who's the happiest baby around. He doesn't smile in this picture, but he smiles IRL allll the time!
The day after that I visited my friend Christine in Kelowna for a day of casual biking, beaching and eating. It was a hot and sunny day, and it was the first time this year that I swam (well, did a quick dip that lasted all of 5 seconds because the water was chilly).
Kelowna is such a summer city with a beachy vibe, spending a day there always feels like being on vacation. There are a ton of beaches, restaurants, cafes and cute shops, and everything is flat! We biked about 22 km that day but it didn't feel like it at all. Exercise that doesn't feel like exercise? Sign me up!
When we are in Princeton Lily and I go to the river almost every day, because it's so relaxing. I have a few spots that have become favorites, and we visit them as much as we can before my time here comes to an end in a few weeks. 


I'm doing a lot of internal work. I've been using Brianna Wiest's workbook I Am The Hero Of My Own Life for several months now, slowly making my way through it, and it's been phenomenal. 
There are a few changes I've been wanting to make for years, and I'm finally tackling them! Brianna's book is a guided journal that asks you to take a close look at your life, the way it is now and how you want it to be. I need to write my feelings and thoughts down to make sense of them, so this has been really helpful and eye-opening for me! 

If you want to figure out some stuff and find journaling helpful, I can't recommend this book highly enough. 
More to come soon, friends! Enjoy the summer while it lasts!

xoxo Miriam
