August is fading. Soon all of us, including Justin Trudeau, will reluctantly have to put on clothes. But we'll always have our great summer memories -- here are a few of mine.
I was in the July/August issue of This arguing we should stop shaming women for sexy texts (print-only; on discerning Canadian newsstands near you).
If you know you should be blogging, but don't know how on earth to find the time or the desire, check out the post I wrote on how to blog if you hate blogging.
I lapped up every word of this tell-all from Trump's ghostwriter. Today, the ghostwriter who penned "The Art of the Deal" says "I put lipstick on a pig."
As someone who ghostwrites, it shows how important it is to choose projects wisely. I love working with my clients, who do incredible, meaningful work every day. (And not one of them has asked me to contribute to the cost of events they've held, as Trump did with his ghostwriter.)
This summer included many comings and goings, from Toronto to the cottage to Vancouver to Manitoba and back again. I hadn't been to Vancouver since I was a child, and it reminded me that though I'm often drawn towards international travel (Colombia and Argentina top my to-go list right now), there is so much to see in Canada, too.
There's a harbour or bay at the end of every street in Vancouver (Wreck Beach is UBC's backyard) and all that time around the water showed why spending time around water is one of the ways to keep a vacation feeling in everyday life.
As summer comes to a close, I'm hoping to find ways to take that upbeat summery feeling into the fall with me. I hope you're able to as well.
