“Official” Summer Days (and Nights)

Summer is a weird season. We’ve just officially come into it (hence the title), and it’s really just getting into the hot temperatures, but if you’re like me and are starved for the trappings of summer all year long, it feels like the season is already slipping away.

Next week is JULY. As someone who will hit up a park and patio at the first signs of spring in April (and I did), having May & June behind me makes me want to pump the breaks on summer. Many patio and park hangs, as well as concerts, festivals and the like have already occurred (as well as several ice cream excursions), but I’m far from ready for this season to slip by.

While the summer is supposed to be a slow season, this year is seems to be a peak time for having plans. The great thing about the city that is you can “get away” without getting away. A trip to the island, a day in one of its many parks, festivals celebrating every conceivable neighbourhood – if you’re like me and lacking in vacation time, evenings and weekends offer plenty of opportunities to get in a proper summer experience.

I’ve seriously lacked on the blogging front this year (I blame Instagram. And Netflix), but here’s the greatest hits of summer in TO so far including Bestival (Banks! Florence!), seeing Ed Sheeran for the third time, brunches galore, patios, parks & more:

I heart Bestival…minus the ferry lineup. #latergram @bestivaltoronto

A rainy Monday = dreaming of weekend patio drinks.

I don’t always Instagram food, sometimes I Instagram nature. A photo posted by @lisap_88 on May 6, 2015 at 6:22pm PDT
