May was a great month and I’m so glad it’s finally summer and maybe just maybe the sun will come out to play. I’ve managed to make so many great additions to our apartment this month, from new plants to painting the living room. I love when ideas start coming together and I can check them off the list. Last weekend was such a great way to ushering out May – Mutek was so great and it’s just the beginning. I have so many plans for the summer, besides just sleeping on my hammock and relaxing in the air conditioning (we just bought both of those and cannot wait for them to arrive). My bike was also fixed this week so me and Victor can start finding places to explore around Montreal that are far away. I also have 3 new toy cameras to play around with in June (will have a post all about them next week if you want to know what I picked up). The biggest thing I’ve been excited for about summer was starting to make popsicles but our fridge decided to break at the beginning of the month so I’ve had to hold off on making any. I have so many recipes I want to perfect and then share with you guys. I’m hoping this week we can have it repaired and I can start filling the freezer with fresh fruit popsicles. For the blog I have tons of posts I’m working on, keeping up with trying to do more reviews and just loving my 52 Weeks of Self-Portrait project. One decision I’ve made though is to put off my 100 Strangers project until next year. I’ve been working really hard on various projects that I’m really excited for and just do not have the time to invest into capturing 100 Strangers (I’ve taken 2 photos since starting in January…that is so bad). I started the year really excited to do it but feel at this point to force myself to do it would be a disservice and it’s better to not stretch myself too thin. One of the other reasons is because this summer I’ll be dedicating myself to a project for an upcoming art show I want to put together. Also the other project I’ve wanted to do People vs. Places is more flexible and easier for me to start. Do you ever find yourself overloading on projects? I’m the worst at that. Ready for more though!
