scenes from my weekend


the wine & spirits festival at sugar beach | father’s day gifts |
snuggling in my moms bed
celebratory dinners at Lemeac | my brothers graduation | family feet

Apologies for not being around yesterday to share my weekend with you, but I was away with my family in celebration of my brothers graduation. While the weekend started off at a slow and leisurely pace, it quickly picked up on Sunday morning when we made our way to Montreal. Making the six-hour drive (one way) to visit a place for just under twenty-four hours is not for the faint of heart, you can rest assured. It was a whirlwind of a trip and now that I’ve returned it doesn’t really feel like I was gone at all. But it was a special one, filled with celebrations and laughter and lots of bubbly wine. Short and sweet, in the best possible way. We’re all so very proud of my little brother (who currently holds a University degree in his hands), and we cannot wait to see what great things he’ll get up to next!

      It was lots of fun!
      I have three siblings: a brother, a half sister and a step sister. It’d take me years to explain the difference! Split families are complicated haha

    This time, was easy for me to chose the one I love the most! … although not a picture taken “by” you!
    Tried to figure out the who is who’s in feet, but I am sure for only one person!

    almost everyone is pointing to the beautiful photo with the pretty kitty, everyone shy to point to the sweet lovely girl sleeping angelically next to her in that pretty bed… adorably… it is the combination that makes the picture

    The photo of you and the cat is absolutely precious! Montreal is one of my favorite cities in the world. How lucky that your brother got to go to school there.
