This morning I walked to work in a white dress and a leather jacket, I even wore my favourite Roberto Cavalli sunglasses, and I had a little extra jump in my step probably because it was sunny and beautiful and I can finally see the end of the dark tunnel that was winter 2014. The weather app on my phone tells me that on Friday it will be a whopping 23 degrees, the polar vortex is gone and my tan is about a month away from being a lovely golden brown colour. I’m focused on the summer and making this one the best yet.
One of my favourite things about summer is all the country music; even people who claim to like everything BUT country can be seen dancing to Georgia Florida Line. This summer is extra special because some girlfriends and I bought COUNTRY MEGATICKETS! Which means that this summer I’ll be going to 5 shows at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre; Brad Paisley, Tim Mcgraw, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and Rascall Flatts. Yay! I’m going to two-step so hard!
After the crazy winter we’ve had I think we all deserve a break and this Friday I’m taking one thanks to Charming Media and Viamede Resort. Boyfriend and I are kicking the summer off with a relaxing weekend of drinks, karaoke (sorry dear), delicious food stuffs, water sports and a pig roast.It turns out that my pal and fellow blogger Jenny and her boyfriend Marty will also be attending the media weekend, yay! There’s already been discussion of an in room game of Cards Against Humanity played in robes while drinking champagne. I’m not even sure if Viamede has robes, although I have a weird obsession with hotel robes so I’d be totally down for playing card games in robes if that can happen.
There was a time when Jenny and I were total partners in crime when I started writing for Women’s Post we were the resident relationship columnists and it didn’t take long before we were meeting up for champagne and gossip on a weekly basis. She knows more than a few stories that I wouldn’t, couldn’t, share with anyone else. There was this bartender… yeah I’m not going into that. At some point Jenny and I lost touch and to be honest it broke my heart but we recently reconnected and we’ve been making time to be friends again lately so I’m absolutely THRILLED that she’s going to be at Viamede this weekend and that she’ll get to meet Boyfriend for the first time ever… as long as she promises not to tell him any of those stories.
Boyfriend and I went to Viamede last year but it was March and the resort has since undergone a complete makeover so I’m curious to see what’s changed and how they’ve managed to make a place that already felt perfect even better.
OK summer I’m ready for you let’s start this season right.
