and so here i am totally excited imagining me in this photo!! and so soon from now!! but with jeremy and not this guy!!
and i'm listening to jewel. that teal cd of hers is perfect for this occasion.
the beauty and humour in being with someone who you love and loves you so completely back, is that even if you are being a turd in a canoe, they'll accept you in all your glorious turdness.
and offer you some pie, warmed in the oven, when you get back on land.
magic boat dock with magic round of light in top right corner.
this is how you paddle right? haha i used to actually be good at this. my mom and i camped and portaged together in killarney when i was younger so it's in there somewhere. under levels of spaz and curled hair.
it was 180 years old a place and the guy who ran it said they're not even sure who built it because it was there before the land in the area was settled. that is so neat.
it had floorboards you could see through, from the top floor to the bottom, and i liked to call to jeremy through the cracks and have him guess where exactly i was.
the place had a soul. an old soul wrapped up in quilts.
we had errands to run in the mornings, caterer meetings and florist meetings and we had to test out the corn maze at the wedding venue, but the afternoon and evenings were ours in this place that felt like home. and i could taste what life would be like for us, when we actually do get there.
tasted like camping pizzas.
also they make you cappuccino's there for free.
horse jumping is funny. not funny 'ha ha' but just funny like 'hmm that's interesting i'm not sure i get what's going on here'. i mean i get that they're jumping but i don't really get the point? if i was a horse jumper i'd just run my horse around the ring and pretend i was an elven sprite on the back of a magical steed which the audience would appreciate i'm sure, this sport seems rather repetitious.
not a renovation, a quilt! we realized this weekend that we like something called 'flea market style' when jer was flipping through this book in anthropologie. (in other news all my decisions are now guided by this beautiful store which costs ten thousand times what you'd spend at a flea market unless it is a flea market where gold is sold.)
basically the style is that you decorate using stuff you find or get for free or for five bucks from a yard sale. this quilt was 50 dollars so it's not following those rules but it's still antique and cute and i want to curl up in the centre of it like a cat and have a nap.
the photo on the right with the bike i got in montreal from some photographer on a street corner. lily got one too only hers doesn't have the bike and we pretend the bike is gone from her picture because it is over visiting me. speaking of which lily if this bike is going to live here full time, you really should be sending some support.
the frog one someone's mom made but we got it for a buck at a yard sale, the mug one is a photo jeremy took on his balcony in japan and the little one on the bottom is of cave men hunting grocery carts.
i wonder what sort of conversation the dresses are having right now. i hope they're all like 'oh you're so beautiful' 'no no you're so beautiful' 'no you're the most beautiful' and then my wedding dress will finally be like 'yes you're right thank you'.
these pictures are from a thank-you party we threw for the advertising agency that's been promoting (for free) our company for over 10 years and it was SOME fun thank-you party! there was relay races and organic sausages and what more could you ever ask for on a tuesday?
you can tell i've been working with these people for awhile now they're totally tuning me out in this picture to have their set-up discussions. but look at my new hat guys!!!here i am making a sign that says WASHROOMS with an arrow on it. i gave up halfway and asked someone else to do it cause they'd 'be better at it than me'. i felt limited creatively.
i hope the departments don't get divorced that would be awkward for us and difficult to decide who goes with who on what weekends.
some would call me an activist.
