haut a wah!

Oh no, summer is going by far too quickly. My weird love affair with Ottawa continues…I’m gonna miss it! Sometimes I like walking instead of biking home from work. It is nice to slowwww down and stop as often as I want to take photos. Apparently a popular spot for bike meetups. Dundonald Park: favourite […]

Things that are contributing to my new found contentment: Awesome coworkers & work I actually enjoy (it is possible, hallelujah). Roommate dinners. * Biking, durrr (I’ll be doing a lot of […]
