An Afternoon At Chuck E Cheese’s

This afternoon my sister and I took out our three little cousins on a VERY belated birthday outing to Chuck E Cheese’s! (And when I say belated I mean belated – one is two-week belated and the other is three-month belated.😛 )

Btw this beautiful sister of mine started a YouTube channel! If you want to learn how to achieve beautiful makeup looks or learn more about beauty or simple want to support her, go check it out and subscribe! (Also no, Chuck E Cheese’s does not sell sushi – Sabrina’s GF/DF so she can’t eat pizza.)

We’ve come a couple times as cousins before but that was a looong time ago. The first time for Markus’ birthday when he was a toddler and the other for Beka’s birthday if I can remember correctly. But believe it or not they remembered bits and pieces of it! Mostly from photos probably. So we knew that we had to do it again.🙂

The Harry Potter Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans added to the fun!

I definitely want to do more activities like these with my cousins. Something to build relationships and to look back on and remember. Like remember the time when we made Star Wars cookies or when we had a sleepover under the Christmas tree?

Saying goodbye to summer & welcoming fall

I’ve been having mixed feeling about the change of seasons. It’s always hard to say goodbye to summer, but I feel like this summer especially. Here’s why.

1

This summer was amazing. There were so many good memories made and adventures shared with friends and I don’t want to say goodbye. Pretty soon every one will be back to school or working so there’ll be less time for fun and a whole lot less sunshine!

But it’s not only a change of seasons from summer to fall but a change of season in my life.

This fall is the first time I will not be returning to school. I graduated from high school earlier this year and will be taking a gap year to save money for travel, education, and investing into a future business. This is completely new to me and I’m embarking on a new adventure of unknowns. What job will I get? What career will I choose to pursue? Will I be able to make enough income to support myself? So many unanswered questions.

I’m nervous yet excited to journey into the unknown. I don’t know what the future holds but I know God is sovereign and He’ll work it all out.

But nevertheless, there are so many things to look forward to this fall like those beautiful autumn days, trips to the pumpkin patch, cozy sweaters, my birthday, pumpkin pie & pumpkin spice lattes, halloween, and my new blog! I’m super excited to launch it once I have everything in order. For now, anticipate an October launch!

Take 5

Got back from vacation and now I’m just enjoying the slowing down of summer. Soaking in sunshine, listening to tunes, and planning for the fall is what’s been occupying my days of late. Note: This Take 5 is a little late posting – I wrote it up a while ago so some of this stuff is kinda old but whatever😛

1. Lindsey Stirling released her new album Brave Enough!!! My favourites are “Lost Girls” and “First Light” if you’re wondering🙂

2. Decided that Instagram is my favourite form of social media – been loving #californiadisco from the dream team Tess, Amanda, Sharee & Alex.

3. Ok that should have taken up the rest of Take 5 right there but let’s continue shall we?

4. This is tempting. 

5. Finally become obsessed with Carly Rae Jepsen. You know, gotta support my fellow Canadian artists.
