A Relaxing Sunday

Hanging out with a fruit smoothie and a fresh coffee
Listening to the waves crash against the sand
Watching the ocean dance to its own music
Hoping it warms up enough to go for a swim
Life is a delight today

Family Memories

This spring and early summer has certainly been a time to build family memories. I love moments like these, family dinners, reminiscing, inside jokes and knowing that they always have your back.

We just finished hosting Mom and Dad Farrell as well as Uncle Roy and Aunt Roselle. We were blessed to have them out in Calgary for a little over a week. The time positively flew by with such moments as:

- family dinners
- drive to the mountains
- an interesting play that has me suspectful of my neighbors now
- delicious lobsters
- meeting a special someone
- watching elks
- household chores and dump runs
- appies on a freshly painted deck (i had nothing to do with the work - just enjoyed the final result)
- morning coffees and evening chats

Wish you could have stayed a little longer, mom and dad - there were so many things we didn't get a moment to do. But alas - lots of items on the list for next time.

And Saturday I head to the farm to see my family. So excited to squeeze the nephews tight, share coffee on the deck with Kim, have relaxing chats over lunch with ma and pa, and admire Trev's hard work. Jimmy can't make this trip but no worries - there is still the weekend home for my little cousin's wedding (the second youngest of us - mercies!) and then a family weekend out at Cypress Hill's (really looking forward to that mom!).

And you know what the best part of the coming week is? I won't have a stitch of work to check in on nor catch up on!

A new challenge

Well, after 7 years - this is it. It is time to wind down my time at Entero and move onto a new experience.

I am joining The Structure Group as a consultant.

Giving my resignation was one of the hardest things I have done - and as I expressed to Jimmy it feels a little like my boyfriend and I broke up when we were on vacation with his family! But alas each day brings the transition a little closer to the end and as I anticipate my new challenges - I am very excited.

I will essentially be doing what I do now - but rather than working for the vendor, our company is hired by the client. I am not sure what a day in the life will look like yet, but I should know soon enough and will be sure to keep you posted!
