I”m writing this on Sunday, June 26 thinking about how summer days like today are the best days of the year and always remind me why I love living in Edmonton – our summer weather is perfect and there’s always an abundance of things to do and see. With that in mind, after this week’s Edmonton downstage, I’m going to take the rest of the summer off from this weekly feature. But don’t worry – you’ll be hearing lots from me leading up to Fringe!
