Started the day with homemade breakfast, and ended with home cooked dinner with plenty of fun in between.


DAY 183 – July 2nd

Today was a beautifully lazy Sunday, complete with a walk to the park, a run in the rain, and a delicious homemade dinner.


DAY 184 – July 3rd

That moment your husband comes home to find you stuck in bed with a headache, and proceeds to stroke your hair because he knows it will make you feel better–priceless!


DAY 185 – July 4th

I got to enjoy a beautiful sit-down dinner with my husband before my studio guests arrived, and while it was short-lived, it was super romantic. 💕

DAY 186 – July 5th

After patiently waiting for almost 6 weeks, we got some of our wedding photos today back from Melissa Morrissey Photography and they are beautiful! Can’t wait to share the rest!

DAY 191 – July 10th

Today was an extra mundane Monday, as if everything was just happening in front of me, without being in it. The perfection of a well made coffee snaps you right back in the action. Bliss 💕


DAY 192 – July 11th


DAY 193 – July 12th

Who doesn’t love a Grey’s binge…


DAY 194 – July 13th

Coming home to diner made for me, ready with a glass of wine and sauce-from-scratch–priceless! Gosh I love it when he has the day off!


DAY 195 – July 14th

Two words: Keto Enchiladas. If that doesn’t offer you pure joy, then you need to reevaluate your decision making process. Yep, they are that good!


DAY 196 – July 15th

Today I had the opportunity to be a part of a very special event for a friend, who just opened up shop in Wellington West. A big move for her bridal shop from Kanata, a re-brand with a name-change, and a fabulous open house for her partnership with fabulous wedding vendors. The event was fantastic, the shop is amazing, and Earleen of Revelle Bridal is awesome. Go check it out! (two doors down from Bridgehead)

DAY 201 – July 20th


DAY 202 – July 21st

The reason I’ve been so quiet lately and kept to just hashtags as the captions is because we’ve been patiently waiting to hear back from our real estate agent about a house that we put an offer in early this week (the reason for my dad’s visit + the emotional roller coaster). Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be, and we will have to wait for an even better one to come along. Wish us luck!
