Engagement Party!

One of my very best friends Karly got engaged recently so I decided to throw her a small engagement party on friday night with our close girlfriends. We had lots of food, wine and best of all FUN!

The next day I came home and there was a present with a ring pop and champagne in it, with a balloon attached to the present saying pop me! I popped the balloon and a piece of paper (and a million confetti hearts that are still all over my kitchen) flew out saying “I can’t say ‘I do’ without you. Will you be my bridesmaid?”

I am so excited to stand up for her next summer!

Into the woods

For the Canada Day long weekend we went to one of my best friends cabins. It is a place I have gone to almost every summer since I was a little girl. I love going to the cabin because it is like a breath of fresh air. Being engulfed in nature. The smells, the sounds, and the feeling I get when I go. It all brings me back to when I was 5 years old, with never a care in the world. Just pure joy.
