It’s HERE! SUMMER!! Time to celebrate with your friends and family. Gather your favourite people, because Danni and I have created the perfect Canada Day menu for a crowd.
Canada Day Long weekend always feels like the start of the summer for us because without a doubt, May Long has not produced the beautiful, summer- like temps we all are anticipating. I have to say, there is nothing like the first “freedom weekend” of summer to pull out all the stops. Not only are we celebrating Canada’s birthday but also, the fact that the kids are done exams and carefree for two entire months.
It is already June. Wow!! Where did the last half of the year go??!!
With a busy family, I find June to be one of the busiest months of the year. Year end activity wrap ups, student exams, graduation ceremonies and nestled right in the middle of the month is Father’s Day.
So I ask the million dollar question??..What do we get our Dad’s/husbands for Father’s day. Long gone for us are the homemade gifts that the kids would bring home from school, the tacky ties, fancy socks or World’s Greatest Dad coffee mugs. So how about….
Creating a list of “Top 10 Reads” is always tricky – especially for summer. For some reason, summer always brings out the worst in my book choices. I think it harkens back to my years spent in school. I spent so much time reading “good” literature, and at many times, books that were really a slog. So when summer hit, I broke out the Danielle Steele. Well, not quite, but I really preferred the stereotypical, mindless beach read. It was fun, I could put it down at any time and it didn’t involve much brain power. Never fear, this list does not have Danielle Steele on it, but it might have one or two beach reads you can take to the lake. Danni and I have each contributed five books we love, or are sitting on our nightstand waiting for us. Here is our list of top 10 reads to check out this summer. You might just find a little something you like.
