Currently... Vol 4

You guys have no idea how much I've missed you - and how much I've missed posting here on The Written Word(s)! But I'm back now, it's time to party! 🎉

Keep in mind, my idea of a party involves cases of Fanta and a massive supply of board games XD

I hope that all of you have been managing to stay happy, healthy, and mentally sane throughout the course of this pandemic. Seems like plenty of areas in the US are beginning to open up, meanwhile in Canada our case numbers keep climbing - and to think we were laughing at the way the US was handling COVID this time last year 😬 It's probably karma.

Regardless, I have had a lot in my life change since my last

Currently Planning...

... My First Camping Trip! No, that was not a typo - I'm actually planning to go camping in the near future. And we're not talking "paid site with power and water hook-up to the RV" kind of camping - More like "Crown lands, back woods, possible portage-ing" kind of camping. And yes, this would be my very first experience with camping (from what I've heard, sleeping in a tent in the backyard with my friends doesn't count as camping).

I'm equal parts excited and nervous. Well, okay, maybe 45% excited and 55% nervous, but can you blame me? I've never gone camping before and this first trip will be taken without any training wheels. Back woods camping is a huge passion of my boyfriend's, and despite my anxiety about this trip, I'm looking forward to giving it a genuine shot. Who knows? Maybe I'll really love being in the middle of nature without a Wifi signal! (that surely came off as sarcastic, but it wasn't... Not entirely, anyway 😅)

Either way, I'm planning on filming as much of the trip as I can, plus I'll be taking a bunch of pictures. I'll tell you guys all about my trip once I'm back. We were planning on going during the May long weekend, but our lockdown protocols got extended, so now outdoor activities are banned until June 14th at the earliest. If Alan has his way, 

... A Design Refresh for TWW(s) & More Blog Content! After a little goofing around with Canva, I ended up creating what I believe is a pretty great re-design of the TWW(s) logo. I was so happy with my creation that I kept going, and I ended up designing a new banner image to go right along with the new logo! I don't want to spoil it, but I can assure you, it's super pretty 💖

The new graphics still need a little tweaking, but as soon as they're ready I'll be rolling them out on the site all at once. Along with all the pretty new pictures and colours, I may be making a few layout changes to the blog, although I'm not 100% certain yet. I'm always open to suggestions and recommendations though! Especially from my amazing readers.
