Tyson and Angie's wedding

My dear friends Tyson and Angie just got married a week and a half ago in rural Manitoba. The wedding was gorgeous and SO much fun...and I usually dread weddings! Freddy and I (plus 15 other Montrealers) flew out there to celebrate their special day.

It was a super creative, original, and go-with-the-flow kind of wedding, which is just a reflection of the bride and groom. It also proves that you don't have to spend a ton of money to have an unforgettable and beautiful wedding. Angie found her wedding dress for $5, the decorations were hand-made by willing friend-volunteers , and all of the bridesmaids dresses were made by the bridesmaids themselves (ok so I had to sew a few extra dresses, hehe). The wedding took place at Angie's parents' property- it was the perfect location!

Below are just a few photos, but you can see the rest here.

Here are all the bridesmaids...from left to right- Amanda, Pam, Cara, me, Angie, Judy, Elaine, and Jill.

Omg, I totally ruined this picture because my dress kept lifting up when I spun around (I made my dress a bit shorter than the other girls...ooops). I'm the standing awkwardly pulling my skirt down....

The tent, all set up! The girls picked wildflowers from the yard for the flower arrangements. So pretty...

Congratulations Tyson and Angie!!! :-D

Backyard photos

Whew, it's been a while since I last posted! This summer has been flying right by. I've been super busy with work but I've been lucky enough to squeeze in some time to enjoy summer. James (my upstairs neighbor) and I have been putting a lot of work into our backyard, which was essentially a blank slate when we bought it. Everything we planted is growing in nicely! Here are a few pictures...

Little Girl, relaxing in the grass...

James works as a landscaper and was able to get us this gorgeous stone for free!

My cherry tomato harvest!

Echinacea, roses, and pretty.

Well, I should get back to work! So much to do this week! :/
