Summer Wrap Up & Photography

Is it just me… or does it feel like summer started seriously only a couple weeks ago? And I know I probably say this every summer, but honestly this summer went wayyy to fast for my liking. I have so much to fill you in on; my thoughts, what I learned over the summer, and of course some photos I took becuase what else?


Before I got into it, I just wanted to let you know I am currently having a Q&A! There will be a formal blog post out soon announing it but I decided to give you guys a little sneak peak! You can ask up to five questions, so ask away!


I think the biggest things I learned this summer was to make the most of out everything.ย A lot of the time, I think people compare themselves to others on social media and see all their summer photos and their fancy beach houses and everything else. I think making the most out of what you got is where it’s at.

My friend from half-way across the world came to visit me for a week, and I live in the middle of nowhere, so that really meant a lot to me. To be completely honest, there is not really much to do in my town, but, I went to the dollar store and I bought sparklers for a $1.50 a pack. We honestly had so much fun taking photos with them and playing around. Here are some of my favorite photos…

So… what did you think of those? Pretty cool, right?

And since it’s back to school season already, (๐Ÿ˜ญ) the biggest thing I want to keep in mind during these next couple weeks is make the best of it. Yes, school can seriously suck sometimes, but if you are lucky enough to have free education, you are lucky enough. That’s just a little tidbit of motivation for ya ๐Ÿ˜‰

Psst… to give you even more motivation, here is a FREE wallpaper I made just for you ๐Ÿ˜†

More Thoughts…

I also just wanted to say how grateful and lucky I am to have travelled this summer. It is seriously a blessing and I am very appreciative. Speaking of, I’m not finished with those travel diaries quite yet… As you read this I will either be off to Denmark or in Denmark, not exactly sure when I’ll be posting this, but stay tuned for those photos!

What I’ve Been Up To…

This past month has seriously been crazy. The 1st of July was my birthday and I had an amazing day with family and friends on the lake. I LOVE watersports and wakeboarding is definitey my favourite. The second week, one of my best friends flew, like I mentioned before, halfway across the world to come see me. I had an amazing time with her and that was a week I’ll remember forever ๐Ÿ™‚ The next week after that I was in swimming lessons so hopefully I can get my lifeguarding soon, fingers crossed. I also worked on finishing up a music course I started for high school credits and taught some piano lessons to little kids in between. What’s next? Well, off to Denmark for me!


Back To School…

And yes, it’s that time of year, again. I’m curious… when do you go back to school? I know different countries start at different times. For me, I go back the start of September, but I know a friend who starts early August.

I would really like to do some back to school posts, and I think it would be better to get them up sooner or later just because people go back at different times.

What back to school posts do you want to see? DIY school supplies, studying tips, high school advice? Let me know in the comments!

Well, I think that is all I have to say for one day. Thanks for reading through all my rambling ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to for you to read my next posts, I am super excited about what is coming up!
