My True Loves....

My Sister in Law Erin posted these pictures on her facebook...I am forever grateful .. She always seems to have a camera at the most perfect moments...with out her documenting our family I would have very few pictures of these two..sad ...I know...but I never think of just grabbing the camera and snapping.
These two people here are my true loves...I love every single thing about them.. Even when when the times are really good and when the times are really down right rotten. I loved this Lazy Sunday afternoon.... great memories..Thank you Erin you made my night!

A touch of black with white...

I found these pictures on a photographers website.. Lauren Resens. I cannot tell you how much I love everyone of her Snaps...she also does stills...what a great way to spend a few extra minutes of your day.

I adore the touch of back with the white.

Black glossy doors...oh how I love thee!!

Just Plain Happy

Today 's blog is going to be a bit mushy so bare with me...I have a few things on the go...I can't tell you all just yet...but I have my fingers crossed and I am hoping some great positive things will happen in the next few days...or weeks!
I just had a great lunch with two wonderful Friends Hilary and Erin( from High School) we try to met up a few times a year...I have to tell you that these girls are so intelligent, so kind & witty . I love lingering over our lunches and getting caught up to speed on children, work, in laws etc...I always leave them wanting to be a better person and I am so grateful for the time we spend together. This week has been a wonderful friend week... I have spent some great time with friends ..I had Pam and her daughter Emma come up to the cottage for a sleepover, I had Dana drop in for a play date with Audrey, I had a great walk with Keith Gertie and Paris,I had my sister in law Erin and Sam drop in for a movie and dinner date ..and I met up with Tracie and had some tea and cake...she is the sweetest and kindest gal in St.Catharines.
It got me thinking That if you surround yourself with great people great things will come.I am just so plain happy ...I hope that each of you that reads this blog will have a least one great friend in life...and I hope you can find the happy in many parts of Your day! Tomorrow I have a date with my favorite friend who I love more then words can express mom! I am truly a lucky girl!Wishing all of you great happiness!!

Jack and Izzy...

Ok...I love a good birthday party! I have great fun trying to think of new ideas for CeCe's.
This year I ordered her invites from Etsy, from a vendor called Jack and Izzy. You can customize them and they have so many great little image's and colors to choose from. I was delighted to find these pictures of the birthday party Jack and Izzy had for their little boy!
I just had to share them,these ideas would be great for any occasion weddings , Christmas dinners, retirements ,showers etc, . If your talented on the computer you could probably do this yourself ...

Notice the sign , the tiny glass milk jars and of course the fabulous straws!!

Ha...I think I may be able to figure out how to do the packaging here... I think?

Love the love love....
