Americano equals love. :)

I think it's due time for an update, don't cha think? :)

So much time has gone by since my last post, but I have been incredibly busy with touring and the new album.
We are hoping to have everything recorded by the end of August, but even with a whole month ahead of us, things are still looking a little tight. Everything is shaping up nicely though and we are extremely happy with what we have so far.
Just saying that 'I'm excited' for this new album doesn't quite cut it. I am so many feelings right now, and all of them are great. :)

Our Maritimes tour was absolutely fantastic. I had so much fun and got to meet so many incredible people. The band became so tight at the end of the tour it was insane. I really wish it could have gone on longer for that reason alone. I keep imagining what another two weeks would sound like. Probably insanier! Haha. Seriously though, each show was so unique and so great for it's own reasons. I don't even know if I could pick a favourite now that I think about it...

Probably the highlight of the tour was on our day off. My dad and I stayed at this beautiful house in Blandford, Nova Scotia.
It was right on the ocean and you can ride a bike around the whole cove. (I didn't go the whole way...it would have taken me probably 10 hours because I kept stopping to look at everything haha).

There was also this little beach shack separate from the house that just kind of sat on the ocean. It had a huge bed, a kitchen table and chairs...it was seriously like a mini house, with paper lanterns and blue and white Christmas lights decorating the ceiling. I got to sleep inside one night. The tide was in and I could feel the waves rocking and swaying underneath me. It was so peaceful...probably one of the best sleeps I've ever had, and when I woke up, I could see the ocean through a little window and hear the seagulls around me.
Ahh. Just thinking of it makes me miss it so much...

I really think if there was a place I was meant to live, it would be Nova Scotia. This is the second time I've been there, and every time I leave, I feel so sad. I mean, I love where I live now...it's beautiful in the Niagara Peninsula with all the Wineries and green. But I don't know, there is just something about Nova Scotia that gets me. Like it already roped me in the last time I visited, and hasn't let me go since...

Diddy of the Day: I went kayaking yesterday in Paris, ON. It was amazing. Afterwards, I had the best Caffè Americano of my life at this little coffee place downtown. Yeppers, I'm hooked on coffee now! I think I love it a little too much.



Fact: When we went on tour I chewed way too much gum and drank wayy too much coffee. Bad. Bad. Bad...

Fiction: I heart lemons. Haha. I actually H-A-T-E lemons and lemonade. No idea why...but I just do. :)
