delicious food

The best food we've ever eaten has been prepared by our friend Fern at Good News Café so we had 100% faith that our wedding menu would be to die for. We knew whatever she came up with would be amazingly delicious and beautifully arranged so we left it all up to her. Our only request was to try and make it local as a treat to our out-of-town guests and the environment.
It was absolute perfection and we've received many, many, many wonderful comments from guests about the meal.

thank you details

Our thank you cards have now been delivered (pending a couple) and I'll share more on them very soon. In the meantime, I have to rave over how absolutely perfect the stamps were. They commemorated the Canadian Horse & Newfoundland Pony. My handsome horse is actually a chestnut Thoroughbred hunter but close enough. In university we completed our own set of stamps and mine (of course!) expressed the excitement of the Hunter/Jumper world and it was one of my fav design projects... so, perhaps that explains my enthusiasm for stamps.

honeymooning - mediterranean cruise

It was a bit of a whirlwind, seeing 4 countries in only a week, and we got to see SO many places and cool things at each port. We decided to book excursions for each place because we didn't want to miss a thing. Our family motto actually is "Live Life to the Fullest" and that we did. The excursions were pretty expensive and made us feel like complete tourists but the amazing experiences were completely worth it. While its hard to chose a fav spot B and I both agree on the French Riviera - if we were insanely rich we would live there for sure. The weather there was a perfect 26 degrees C, which felt especially perfect after melting in 30 to 38 degrees plus for the previous 12 days! And now its apparent that we're Canadian with all this weather talk and even more apparent that we live in one-month-of-summer Northern Ontario.
