We took a short trip to Hawaii a few weeks ago where we saw the most beautiful beaches I have ever laid my eyes on. I put my camera down for once and we got our hands dirty to play in the sand with Ellie. Jinny and I took turns jumping in the water whenever Ellie gave us a minute to (it turns out she is afraid of the ocean. We need to work on that!).

These are just small snippets from our trip. Notice how I geeked out to get matching bathing suits with Ellie. Slightly embarrassing but I can't help loving it!

I am always in awe of how beautiful Ontario is and I often wish I had more opportunities to get away from Toronto in the summer. When Shana & Dan invited me to spend the evening on their parents farm outside of the city, I jumped at the opportunity to leave Toronto behind, even for a brief moment.

The farm was idyllic. So peaceful and quiet and their beloved dog Logan was able to run free in the fields. Shana & Dan felt right at home on the farm, their adoration and love for each other is apparent in the photos.

Everything about this evening is the recipe for a perfect summer. This sweet couple basking in golden light, lush green fields, lots of laughter, horses in a field, and baby goats.

(omigosh those baby goats!!)

We had so much fun strawberry picking last year with Eloise that I couldn't wait to do it again this year. But I forgot that toddlers are fickle and never remain the same. She did not like it this year and wanted to leave almost immediately. A few factors may have changed her mood towards picking strawberries this year though. By the time we arrived, it was already noon and it was hot. Strawberry season opened late this year because of the harsh winter we had and they weren't as sweet to Eloise.

So we picked flowers for her grandmother instead. I'm glad she found something else she liked doing!

We escaped the city and ventured to the Toronto Islands for the evening. Summer evenings are magical but it is definitely made more magical on the Islands.

I have fallen in love with these two, this island, this summer.

I can't wait for Kiyomi & Paul's summer wedding in a few weeks.
