summer vacation (1)


With August just around the corner we’re officially headed in to the dog days of summer. My girl has a month left as an official baby before she turns one and starts day-care in September. I’ve made up a bucket list of all the fun things I want to do with her over the next few weeks – go to the beach, have lunch at Tori’s, check out the ROM when it’s too hot to go outside. I want to soak up every last minute of our time together and so I’m taking a little hiatus until September.

Until then, here are a few posts that you may have missed that will help keep you healthy, and maybe even happy, in these final days of summer before we get back to real life!
