If you are curious as to why I am posting August photos during the peak of winter, I must confess that I had forgotten about them until now. Nonetheless, I find these to be rather comforting as I stare out of my window at the glow of the street lamps shining upon the snow. The changing of the seasons is a magical concept. It’s hard to believe that in only four months we will be out in shorts and t-shirts again. I must remind myself of this so that I may appreciate the wonderful aspects of winter before it is too late.
These photos were taken on our hike up Bear Creek to the Waterfall. This experience was without a doubt one of my favourite memories of the summer, even with the freezing water, scraped knees from climbing and stubbed toes from slipping… Still so worth it.
I think it will become a yearly tradition.

I have left home just over six months ago. Not a single day passes where I do not think of my friends. Many times my heart will long for us to be together again. Many times I question my motives for leaving. I wonder why I exchanged such pleasant comfort for risk and uncertainty. Easy for difficult. Belonging for loneliness.
My nostalgia was at its peak during the holiday season, which included my nineteenth birthday. I really wanted my friends.
They must have felt it. After the trip to Québec, I was welcomed to our Toronto home with more mail than teens usually get in a year nowadays. I left my best friends, and they still care about me. This must be true love.
(O.k. I admit I cried too)
Thank you my loves. I can’t even begin to explain how much good this did.
I will start writing again.
Thank you for reminding me to post more, and making me realize that I have not published anything since my sister’s birthday back in October. Much has happened since, and I will try my best to share with you my wonderful adventures and introduce you to many interesting people through this blog.
I miss you friend.
PS. I started reading the Hobbit today
