visit the north

Visiting Home, Summer 2017

Hello Folks,

So I’ve been playing “catch up” with my blog lately because of how dormant I’ve been the last couple months. I really should have been updating while things were happening, but we’re not all perfect haha. So I mentioned a few posts back that I visited my hometown at the beginning of the summer. I initially went home for my little sister’s high school graduation but a couple months prior we found out our family friends were coming from Louisiana to surprise my mum and to attend the grad. It was a fun week of getting caught up with old friends and celebrating my little sister graduating (with honours I may add, yay Bernece).

After our family friends left to go back to the states I had one weekend left before heading back to Ottawa. My boyfriend Ben did the lovely 6 hour drive north from Ottawa to spend the long weekend at my cottage and meeting my family. We tried to hit up all the tourist destinations in New Liskeard, safe to say they’re few and far between haha. All in all, I think Ben had a fun weekend in my small northern home town.

Here are some photos from my week at home, enjoy!

What’s a family vacation if not to make your sibling take photos of you?

Love always,
