365 days of happy – june 2017
I got to spend the entire day with my parents doing wedding prep and it was surprisingly relaxing! Got my nails done with my mom and MOH, finished up some more signs with my dad, and got to enjoy a great meal at The Wellington Diner together with my fiancé. Totally worth the extra long rush hour traffic to get home!
I got to spend my evening with old friends and far away family for the rehearsal dinner, and I cannot to see everyone again tomorrow at the wedding.
IT’S MY WEDDING DAY! Need I say more?! Pre-event breakfast at Cora’s!
Started the day with a post-nuptial selfie, of course! Our first day as a married couple. We got to spend the morning with family at our send-off brunch, and then the afternoon at my cousin’s 5th birthday party. It was the perfect end to a fun & family filled weekend. And the look on her face when she opened her paw patrol toy and Elsa stickers: pure joy!
Our mini honeymoon begins! Returned all our rentals and now we can relax for a few days.
Day 158[it’s a secret]
Today I am thankful that she let me get her to the pump! This is what traffic in Ottawa will do to your “no worries, we’ve got 50K left, so let’s go to the station near home so we can get airmiles” plans. Nope!! It wasn’t even 5K away when I was crossing all my limbs to let me get a few hundred feet further to the one around the corner. I made it. Legit empty.
Day 160[it’s a secret]
So happy that summer has finally arrived so I can start wearing all my pretty dresses. And have the excuse to buy more! Check out this fabulous vintage find.
Homemade dinner with my husband (still feels so weird to call him that!) is always the highlight of my day. Especially when he surprises you with an amazing surf and turf!
But first, coffee. There’s just something so wonderful about groggily dragging yourself to the counter, being handed your perfectly-made coffee, and just having to tap your payment card. Thank you Starbucks man for knowing my special order, and having it ready for me whenever you see me in line. Customer service win! Monday morning motivation!
One year ago, I was walked to this very spot and proposed to when I made him stop to pick the wild peonies from the woods. This year we went back, a few days “late” mind you, to pick them again. Figured we could make a cute tradition about it. Unfortunately they had already been scooped up–very recently by the looks of the freshly cut stems. 😔 Oh well. It’s the thought that counts, right..? 💕🌸
Day 174[it’s a secret]
When your husband makes you diner <3
Twenty years ago today, one of my favourite childhood books was published. After many rejections and hurdles later, she finally got her moment. Which makes me love them even more! I first started reading these with the help of my mother as bedtime stories, but as the years went by she was the one begging to borrow the books I had quickly finished. These stories helped me through many lonely nights, bonding with my mother, kept distant friend together, and helped me learn to read big-girl books. Happiness comes in many forms, and have have J. K. Rowling to thank for some of mine 💕📚
I got to spend the evening with my best friend before she skips town for over a month. I was too busy having fun to take a photo. If you haven’t already seen Zodiac, and you’re a fan of thrillers–you should watch it!
I managed to come up with a concoction of goodies that very closely resembles barbecue sauce for my pulled pork that is keto-friendly, which means without the use of sugar, and I am so stoked. It was delicious!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: dainty florals make my heart swoon. Legit, it skips a beat as it floods my being with joy. Almost as much as when my husband walks in the room. Today I received this lovely piece of art in the mail and I can’t wait to wear it! 👗🌸
