2 more days 'til the weekend.... not like I'm counting....

afternoon sun garden

What is going on with this weather!? I really don't know how to dress anymore.....

Anyway, I've already commented on how pretty spring is because of the colours and flowers blossoming.  It's a time for new beginnings, which I love.  This is what's going on in my garden (which seriously needs some work!).  I'm only sad that so many of the magnolia blossoms in my area died since the weather has been on a roller coaster lately.  

Hope you all have a wonderful week!  :)

It's been a crazy busy weekend and I'm sad that it's come and gone so quickly.  My husband and I are going to Italy soon, so every weekend we've been planning/shopping/preparing to make sure that we are all set to go. I've never been before so I'm really looking forward to a) just being on vacation and b) taking a million photos (haha!!)  Anyway, I intend on spending the next few hours before bed time relaxing and doing absolutely nothing!  

So today on the blog is something different.  I was at a bridal shower today (which my sister and I got lost to on the way there - typical!), and I've decided to feature my outfit.  By no means am I a "fashion blogger," I just feel like sharing with you my awesome pants! Hahah!

Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend :)

the middle of nowhere part two

Sorry for the mini hiatus recently! This past weekend was Orthodox Easter so I was quite busy being a good girl and going to church and also spending lots of time with family!

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  As promised, here are the second half of the photos I took the previous weekend outside of Ottawa. For any of you that are interested, (since I've posted about it two other times HERE and HERE), the actual name of the town is Maberly (population, probably 20! HA!)

More tomorrow :)

what the middle of nowhere looks like

I always love visiting my husband's grandfather's place.  It's so quiet, and the house is so "homey", as you can see HERE!!!!  
So I went for a walk down to the lake and back, and this is what I saw. More to come :) 

Hope you're all having a lovely week so far

double duty

Two things!

First! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter/Passover weekend and that you spent lots of time with family and loved ones! I'm Greek Orthodox (so technically my Easter is next weekend), however, my husband is not, so we spent some time with his family in Ottawa (photos later!). No matter what religion, hopefully you all used this long weekend to relax, and that you made the most of it!


Coconut says Happy Easter too: 


Second! Its my husband's birthday today as well! He's the most awesome, silly, selfless, person I've ever met. He knows me better than I know myself, and anyone that's met him, knows that he is truly a good person.  I couldn't have asked for a better best friend. At the risk of sounding overly corny, I'll end it here, just by saying, Happy Birthday you old man! ;)

I'm loving the fact that tomorrow is hump day and that it's a short week! I hope you're all having a great week so far!  Here's the latest from my iPhone!
