Unexpectedly, and in a rather last minute fashion, Matt and I were able to get away for a little vacation. Very thankful to have that chance. 
First, we went to spend the weekend camping with his extended family. Camping is not my favourite activity and it poured. I was a mess, I wore knock-off Crocs all weekend and everything was damp, but we had fun. I admit it world! I had fun camping!
After camping, Matt and I went off to a cottage we rented in the Parry Sound area. Because it was midweek and last minute, we got a pretty nice deal on a cottage right along one of the many lakes in the area. I wasn't going to take a blog break... I fully intended to post on Monday, then Tuesday...ok, fine, I'll post Wednesday. But then I got too busy doing nothing. I worried that the internet was going to fall apart without me, so I still posted pictures on Instagram (find me at myeditblog in case you don't want to miss a thing). 
Surprisingly the internet did not fall apart without my blogging and I did not fall apart without blogging either. I fact, I fully relished having limited Internet. But we're home now and I'm back to the swing of things. I must say, it's a lot easier to focus on blogging when you don't have a dock along the water with amazing sunsets beckoning your name.

As always, I love your pictures!

Glad you got to get away and enjoyed camping, it's not my favorite thing either, but it's nice to get away and relax. This outfit and these pictures and your hair is just all kinds of amazing. I'm feeling overwhelmed with how much I love it all.

Oh man I really want to go to the lake now. Also, I've been searching for the perfect plaid shirt forever now, it seems. No dice. Winners is all crap here.

Wow I love these photos, what a beautiful sunset! I did catch a few of your Insta pics, mainly the one of rain on the windshield. I must say after seeing it, I felt for you out there in the wilderness. Glad to hear it was a great time!
