2013 got off to a bit of a crazy start but once the weather started warming and the sun decided to come visit, the goin’ got pretty good. Looking back over the past couple months, this summer has been one of the better ones, despite the supreme chaos that has been my life.
Last week I finally moved from Ottawa and am slowly making my way towards my next destination. For now I’m back in my native town, Calgary, until my life is further sorted out. On Friday when the moving guys were at my place one of them let out a loud shriek. I was certain somebody had a hernia or dropped dead, but no, he was just marvelling over the size and number of boxes of shoes I had packed. A couple rubber bins the size of bath tubs is what it took. Not counting the 30ish pairs I have in Calgary now to survive off of.
Anyway, back to the post, if you haven’t been following via Instagram/ Twitter (which you probably should) this is what I’ve been up to:
I kicked off the summer by surviving the Calgary Flood and heading even further West to Victoria where I enjoyed Canada Day weekend seeing family, eating a ton of seafood and breathing in the salty ocean air.
A few days later back in Ottawa I made a couple trips to Bluesfest. I enjoyed an impromptu Zac Brown Band performance but more importantly, I saw my favourite band, Weezer. I was there front row, ready to dance and not miss a beat. Lucky me, I met the guys after.
After packing up my place in Ottawa I returned to Alberta for a couple weeks. I enjoyed some sunshine, and Casey’s company. E was able to come visit August long weekend to make life even that much better.
By the time mid-August rolled through I was in NYC on the biggest shopping trip of the Summer. I had a weekend packed full of sight seeing, great food and new accessories. I have a few more things to share from that trip so stand by.
One last trip to Ottawa to put my things on a truck and say goodbye to the city that has welcomed me for the past 7 years. I arrived back in Calgary last Saturday to a new set of wheels and a final end of summer adventure.
I was so incredibly lucky to catch Weezer one more time at XFest in Calgary. I had the rail in front of Brian and loved every second of it (despite getting absolutely pummelled by anyone who was bigger than me… which was everyone)! What a perfect way to end the summer.
