flowers

I’m on a roll here with knocking things off my goals list. After planting herbs and veggies a few weeks ago, I’ve decided to take the next step. I’ve never been much of a gardener, but I love the idea of fresh, colourful flowers to welcome people into a home.

I stumbled upon a family garden centre over the weekend while out having lunch with friends and decided to buy my goods there as opposed to the garden centres at big box stories. My purchases were inspired by a sun-colourant palette and included a strawberry plant, pansies, and marigolds.

It was a perfect weekend to plant flowers. We had rain with bursts of sunshine!

I’m at that age where it seems like everyone around me is getting married! I have about four weddings to go to this year and know many others who are getting hitched!

My first wedding of the year was my cousin, Michael’s, on May 7th, 2011. My dad’s brother (my uncle), and aunt, and two cousins live in Chicago. While I see my uncle almost every year, rarely do I see my cousins. The last time we saw each other was when we were all still teenagers, over a decade ago, at our grandfather’s funeral. After so long, it was so nice to reconnect.

The wedding took place in Cincinnati at the Taft Museum of Art and it was such a lovely affair!

Warning: lots of photos!
