run to the sun














These days have been nothing but sunny for weeks on end and I couldn't be happier for it. What with summer being as criminally short as it is here in Canada, one must take fullest advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts. Thus I've been wearing frilly dresses (top: vintage, bottom: The White Pepper) and consuming loads of fresh fruit and ice cream, often together as on my Flake 99. Our apartment is continually stocked with fresh blooms courtesy of my mom's garden, or in some cases the flower shop down the street. A friend of mine who shall remain nameless has always teased me about being an "indoor kid" and while this is certainly true during winter months, the summertime is a different story and this indoor kid even caught her first fish last weekend!

Hi!
My name is Ana but most the people (mainly online) prefer to call me Anne. I am a snail mailer from Portugal and I decided to update my blog. ‘Yes, and so what?’ Well, I wonder if you can help me spread the word because I don’t have much foreign readers and I’d love to. So, go check out my blog: http://annemeetstheworld.blogspot.pt/ if you want to.
I would greatly appreciate your help!
Oh by the way, I found your blog by coincidence and I loved it. Keep up with the great work.
Best regards,
Anne.

What a lovely dress! I've been eyeing these at whitepepper for months! It's weird that in so many countries summer lasts so little and in Greece it's more than 3 months, I end up longing for autumn from July!

That ice cream is making me drool.
