I think I just blinked, and now the weekend is over! Crazy! And what a weekend it was! Being a long weekend, Friday was spent catching up on work and trying to stay patient until it was time for the weekend!!
Ryan and I left work early, packed up the car (including Candace) and hit the road for Montreal traffic! Bleh, the drive ended up not being that bad and 4 1/2 hours later we were in Richmond/Melbourne Quebec for the wedding of friends, Nick and Jenn.
After the rehearsal dinner it was back to the hotel room to do what us small town people do best......create a party! Out came the beer coolers (which also added extra seating), the banjo, the guitar and singing voices. Always a blast!
The next morning we were up REALLY early to get the day started. First was breakfast at this amazing little bistro! Then it was time to tour the town!
This town is so cute. There are so many old homes one in particular that I was very interested in. You see, before I left, my mother informed that my great grandpa Dunn use to live in Melbourne and that I should still be able to see the old house. It was easily spotted!
After a couple of pictures with the house, we toured the town from one end to another looking at all the old houses/farms. While driving by one, we saw that it had a shoe sign. We decided to drive in only to discover, paradise!! Well, o.k not really, but it was shoe heaven for this girl! 2 pairs of shoes later, I was even more fond of this old barn!
Finally, it was time to head back to the hotel to get ready for the wedding! It was at the brides grandpa's farm and the sun was shining down on the future Mr & Mrs. It was a great ceremony and as a future bride to be, I was constantly taking mental notes!!
Jenn had looked after so many of the details herself, the super cute old window as a seating chart.
Homemade invites, programs, and table numbers. Everything truly represented the couple!!
The food was awesome and the party was AMAZING! We all danced the night away!!!!
Sunday morning, we hit the road for home sweet home! It was such an adventure getting to visit a new town but it was so nice to be home. We were kind of tired *cough hungover cough* and decided it was a perfect night to watch a movie. When we arrived back home I was surprised to see a package on my island. It was addressed to me but I hadn't ordered anything. When I did open the box I almost passed out when I saw this sitting there......
I have wanted a Kindle for about a year now!!!!!! Ryan had surprised me by buying me one. He said it was for no reason at all, just because he knew I'd love it!!! Yes, I know, he's a keeper!! :-)
Oh, glorious holiday Mondays. We spent the day puttering away at the gardens, cleaning windows and of course, reading a book on my new Kindle!!
This weekend was such a blast! Sitting back now reflecting I feel so fortunate to be able to experience such amazing things with wonderful people. Finally, I would like the thank Nick and Jenn for inviting Ryan and I to their amazing wedding. We both wish you years of love and laughter!
