Adventure is calling – his name is Alex

¬†My husband and I often take separate cars when we make plans during the week since we meet up right after work. On our way home from whenever we are, Alex calls me as soon as we get in the car. We talk as I follow him home or he follows me. With our workContinue reading “Adventure is calling – his name is Alex”

The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO

It’s safe to say that I’ve been rather distracted lately. Apart from all of the last-minute wedding details (which my mom has graciously taken charge of) there’s also this heavy cloud of confusion weighing on my heart. Let me explain… The confusion has nothing to do with the wedding. That is the only thing thatContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO”

The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!

As I sat down at La Bamboche with my fluffy cappuccino I realized that I was about an hour early for my final wedding dress fitting. MY FINAL WEDDING DRESS¬†FITTING. Which meant that I would get to take my dress home because it’s so close to the wedding that there’s no point in keeping atContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!”

The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower

Words I never thought I would put in a sentence (and actually mean them): I loved everything about my bridal shower. Let’s be clear, this is not because I didn’t think we could pull it off, but because I have never been a huge fan of bridal showers. Although I’ve had fun at all ofContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower”

Slow Down

I’ve been told many times that I need to slow down. Whether it comes to texting, tweeting, writing, reading, captioning, getting orders out, or simply making decisions, I tend to rush. I feel the need to get things finished quickly so that I can move onto something else; I am beginning to understand that fasterContinue reading “Slow Down”

The Bride’s Diary – 4 months to go

With four months until the big day I’m trying to get the shower organized, figure out which balances are due and when, confirming flowers and decor, sending out invitations, and ensuring my wedding dress will fit after the alterations are complete. Admittedly all of this is stressing me out. I’m unsure if it is theContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 4 months to go”

The Bride’s Diary – The Bachelorette

Another wedding milestone has come and gone. On Saturday my sister hosted my bachelorette party at Lula Lounge in Toronto. My sister struggled with the planning because I’m kind of weird. I don’t like clubs or big groups, I go to bed early and send my spare time in bed reading. I would rather goContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bachelorette”

It began with a phone call

It began with a phone call, as most adventures do. My brother on the other end of the line, speaking in a hushed tone. He got a flat tire on the highway and needed someone to bring him a spare, some tools, and patience. I volunteered and dragged Alex along. We found my brother andContinue reading “It began with a phone call”

Never a Dull Moment

There are days where I feel incredibly invisible. Days where I take myself so seriously that I literally have nothing nice to say about myself. And then there are moments that bring me down from that lonely dark cloud and into the real world where funny things can happen. Where life surprises me. Lovely momentsContinue reading “Never a Dull Moment”
