An Eventful June 

June has been a busy month in the land of Lindsay. As a result I have been exhausted almost perpetually this month. Hoping for a relatively quiet July, and in turn time to recover. Time to recap the craziness! 

The beginning of June came with a midterm to study for and to write. I probably didn’t study as much as I could have, but I at least managed a 75% on the exam. I am okay with that. The quizzes for this class have continued to happen every week or so, and has kept me on my toes. My last class is tonight, and studying for the final exam commences tonight as well. 

Mid-June came with a big trip for my cousin’s wedding. The family came from far and wide and converged on Brandon, Manitoba for a long weekend. We flew out on Thursday, and returned Monday afternoon. Mom and I tried Airbnb for the first time, and it was a great experience. We saw family we haven’t seen in ages, and we had a fantastic time at the wedding. My cousin looked absolutely beautiful, and the wedding was a fun laid back affair. I was sorry to part with everyone again, but I was very happy to be home again Monday! I was also very thankful for my neighbour who acted as cat-sitter as well. The cats were much better for having someone able to look in on them twice a day! 



Traveling to and returning from Manitoba did a number on me. Luckily I haven’t gotten sick or anything, but I have been exhausted on a whole new level. No amount of sleep has had me feeling rested until today finally. This past weekend I took a few extra naps totalling 5.5 hours of extra sleep. I guess I needed it! 

This past Sunday night brought the Eagles of Death Metal concert at London Music Hall. I took a friend for her birthday. It was a super great time, even though I was crazy tired to begin with and even more so after… I did sleep well that night. A deep and satisfying sleep, even if it was short. It was one of the best shows I have been to in a very long time. Maybe I will get lucky and catch another great show sooner rather than later. 

Well, I’m broke now too, so the excitement has to slow down regardless. Time to rest!

Crazy Beautiful Wedding Weekend

This weekend past was quite a hectic weekend indeed. I guess it is to be expected considering it was a wedding weekend after all! And it was my step-sister’s to boot. Though it was a crazy weekend away from home it was quite enjoyable, even though I am happy to be home again!

The wedding day was a beautiful regardless of the fact that it rained for most of it and was kind of dreary when it wasn’t. Though the sun did finally break through around dinnertime, making the dinner quite lovely. The bride, my step-sister, looked absolutely radiant and the bridal party looked beautiful. The groom and groomsmen looked dashing in their tuxedos as well. The dinner was phenomenal and the venue and its staff were fantastic as well.  I was smart enough to have my camera along and I was lucky enough to be able to snap a few shots throughout the day. These were some of the best:

Now, I obviously was not the professional photographer. I am nowhere near good enough at photography to be a professional! I’m just glad I had the opportunity to take some candid shots. These are just a selection; if you would like to see me please feel free to check out my Flickr account (link in sidebar, under my About Me photo).
