Double digit weather brings on beats such as this that kick the hibernation Hanna in you to the curb and make you raise a glass to reckless behaviour, late nights and crop tops for days. We thank you Calvin for bringing summer good summer vibes our way! Enjoy IRVers.
Late last week my company had its summer social at the Leaside Lawn Bowling Club. I wasn’t sure how much fun it would actually be, but it turned out to be unreal! We all dressed up in white, had a few drinks, and learned the basics. Basically curling, but for the summer – I’m definitely going to be joining a club when I retire.
Obviously here at IRV we like to party hard, ESPECIALLY in the summer. (we also apparently like dears in rocking chairs) BUT! We must admit that summer also provides some prime time reading hours. Evenings in my back yard with a cup of joe are undeniably some of the most enjoyable hours of the summer. So, if you’ve got a few extra minutes, here are a few books you should all check out.
1) And the Mountains Echoed – Khaled Hossein2) When The Crocodile Ate The Sun – Peter Goodwin
3) Wild – Cheryl Strayed
Toss a few Lonely Planets in their too, because any IRVer knows you should always be planning your next adventure.
Weekend, come at me bro.

I’ve said it many times before… I love coming of age stories. I just get all nostalgic about high school when the world seemed so complex, unfair and unjust and how no one really understood me. Now that I’m
grown up older, I love reflecting on the yonder years and how I survived those extremely impressionable days and high-fiving myself for turning out alright. This movie has it all- popular boys falling for nerdy girl. love. passion. rebelling youth. jack ass parents. angsty teens. sex. drama. draaamma. MOREEE DRAAMMMMMAAAA!!!!
All I have to say is I love the writers, the cast, the music and I cannot wait to see this movie.
“This is the youngest we are ever going to be. This is our time. Live in the now”
…. goosebumps? Yah, me too.
