Well, it’s summer and time for my amazing hairdresser to work her magic with my greying hair. So I decided to do something different this time and I asked her to add some purple streaks. This is the result and I just love it!
It was a long weekend here in British Columbia and we were determined to make the most of it. I have come to view my weekends – long or otherwise – as mini holidays. I used to go into the weekends with the attitude that I would spend an entire day cleaning, running errands, grocery shopping … and then spend the other day relaxing and doing whatever people do on weekends. But it never worked out that way. I was always too exhausted from cleaning, running errands, grocery shopping … to enjoy my day off! And anyway, one day is not enough to recharge my batteries. So instead of doing everything on the weekend, I spread it out over the week leaving me with more time on the weekends to enjoy.

Back home again, we got ourselves a drink and sat in our hammocks under the trees
