Weekend Moments: It's Summer Up North

I didn't think summer would ever come up here, but it has. 
And July will mark our 1 year anniversary up here in the north.
Quite the accomplishment in my books.

 I am so thrilled to see summer again... 
Warm weather, lush fresh greenery, and even a few arctic flowers : )

This weekend we took our new canoe out for a spin on the river for the first time.

It felt so good to get out in the wild. We canoed for hours. Not another soul in sight. That's an incredible feeling.

We parked the canoe on a little island and explored the forest. I love how the forest floors are covered in ancient lichens that squish under your feet as you walk. 
Everything feels so untouched up here.

On Sunday the husband was craving a restaurant style breakfast. But since restaurants are scarce (or non-existent up here), we went all out and cooked up a breakfast of champions. 

It was a wonderful weekend indeed. Filled with beautiful sunshine and glorious nature. 
Just the way weekends should be.

I hope you had a lovely weekend too.
