Downtime Highlights

The past few months in the midst of craziness I’ve really tried to slow down and enjoy the moments.  My main goal continues to be living simply and simply living, breathing in each precious minute and really trying to look for the beauty in everything around me.  I’ve also become a supreme coffee snob – so the caffeine intake hasn’t changed much!  I’m noticing more and more how much I love the outdoors.  My main lament about my current situation is that I haven’t found the time to go for a daily walk like I used to.  This little fact shows itself in the 15 extra pounds I carry around!

Enjoy the picture updates of my downtime for the last few months!

I have two favourite local coffee roasters that I frequent – Phil & Sebastian and Fratello.  Thursday mornings I always treat myself to a coffee at either of those places because normally Thursdays at work are C.R.A.Z.Y. and I always want to start my day on a good note.

Of course I’m still enjoying coffee at home and sipping it outside whenever possible.

Every time I’m out and about I continue to try and capture the beauty I see through my camera lens.

I don’t feel like I need to mention my obsession with all things plants and flowers.  On Wednesday Ezekiel and I wandered around a greenhouse “ooo-ing” and “aaa-ing” over all the plants. I could do that every week.

We were fortunate to be able to take a weekend away camping with some friends of mine and we all L.O.V.E.D. it!  Ezekiel was in his glory and Carlo and I soaked in the peace and calm of our surroundings.  We’d love to do it again before summers end.

Well there’s my downtime in a nutshell the past three months.

Here’s to continuing to pursuing simplicity and enjoying the moments of life.
