Well it’s officially..summer is over here in North America and I just heard on the radio that I’m in for a cold cold winter. Wonderful. So before this hits I wanted to look back and remember all the fun times I had before I’m crying in my bed to make the cold and snow disappear (I’m becoming a wimpy Canadian).
My summer started off with my big trip to Glasgow, Scotland, UK to visit my husband’s family and then London,UK to visit friends and do some site-seeing (I have never been). It was a fantastic trip and I’m eager to go back and see all the things I missed (In both cities).
Glasgow & Loch Lomond (area)
Hats and Horseshoes at Woodbine Racetrack for the Queens Plate.
Me and the Parents! Don’t they clean up nice? My mom is wearing Stop Staring and my Dad is wearing a vintage jacket he purchased at VIVA.
I attended a full weekend of German Heritage fun at Germanfest in Milwaukee where I was in my glory. Beers, German Bands and Beers 🙂
Toronto Vintage Society held our annual Pinup Picnic in the Park.
(Note: I was kind of obsessed with my new Vivien of Holloway dress and you will see it again in this post..sorry! lol)
I spent a weekend with a bunch of Swing Dancers in cabins up north called ‘Lindystock’ run by Toronto Lindy Hop (that I do the Social Media for). I had so much fun! We swam, we played games, we did a bit of drinking, had campfires and just hung out. I wore no makeup all weekend, did not do my hair and I was super happy.
Toronto was lucky this year to play host to the Pan Am Games and Parapan Am Games. My husband and I saw Squash at the Pan Am and took my nephew to see Wheelchair Basketball at the Parapan am. Coolest experience ever!
Toronto Vintage Society along with the Gladstone Hotel held a “Vintage Night Market”.
Even though we could not attend the Rosie the Riveter Guinness Book of World Records Event in California, we held our own mini version right here in Toronto.
For the first time ever I finally got to visit the East Coast of Canada-Nova Scotia to be exact. It was a short trip for a wedding (and I will be back) but it was so much fun!
Lastly the summer ended with the Toronto Vintage Society Annual Tiki Party. I played host again at the event of the summer and it was simply..awesome. Such good memories.
And here is a mishmash of all the other events I attended.
Did you have a good summer?
