July flew by! I wish I had taken more photos but this is all I captured on my iPhone.
The month started with a busy work schedule including a photo shoot in the Distillery District.
There was a quick stop to Balzac’s Coffee Roasters before the shoot – hello, most gorgeous coffee shop EVER. (That chandelier!!….)This month I also did a little weekend trip to the St. Lawrence market to grab some cheese and had to stop to snap a pic of this dreamy flat iron building.
I am dying to know what it looks like inside, and especially dying to have a seat in one of those beautiful corner windows.July also featured a massage at the Old Mill Inn and Spa for my birthday (a sweet present from Josh). I injured my knee (don’t ask how, I have no clue), and I haven’t been able to wear heels for a few weeks because of my knee pain (only thing I can wear that doesn’t hurt are flip flops), and the masseur was able to make the pain stop for a few hours which was the best gift I could have asked for! (Can’t wait until my knee is better so I can wear heels again though!)
This amazing book arrived all the way from Ottawa from my bestie for my birthday. She knows me so well! I read it cover to cover in one sitting (which is saying a lot for someone like me that can take a few months to finish one book!). Sophia – you’re a babe! Everybody – read this book!
The highlight of my month was my surprise birthday party. Josh planned out a double date night that served as a cover for coming back to our place afterwards, where the surprise happened. It was a New York themed birthday complete with subway stop signs and Broadway musical posters posted around the apartment, a signature drink (Manhattan’s of course), and little cut-out Statue of Liberty cupcake toppers that were so adorable! (Which he made himself! – how cute is that!?). After a few of those Manhattan’s I forgot to take photos – which may have been a good thing! Thank you Josh for making my birthday so special! xo
July, you have always been my favourite month, and this month was no exception!
