|Wedding Mania- Summer 2012|
|My sister Mallory, cousin Michelle, me, sister Kendra.|
To begin, I am lucky enough to have summers off since I'm a teacher. The summer began wonderfully relaxing and I spent a lot of time outside reading on the deck or at the river. This summer was the summer of crazy. My husband and I were extremely busy with weddings and family get togethers. Over the summer we had 3 weddings and my family had a huge reunion with cousins from all over Canada and the States. I was super excited to spend some time with my cousin Michelle from Chicago.

After the Cabot Trail it was off to Halifax. My sister used to live in Halifax for a summer and we have cousins there. After camping for 4 nights we were sooooo happy to have a bed! It was also the best shower I've ever had :) In Halifax we relaxed during the day and at night we enjoyed the night life. We toured the Alexander Keiths brewery. Let me tell you this was not quite what I expected but hey I got 2 beers out of the deal! We also spent some time with my cousins and my uncle taking in the sights and enjoying some beer at a local pub.

Anyhow, after the trip I started school right away. I had one day to set up my classroom and while it works for now there is still a tonne of stuff to do.
And now for the best reason of all for my absence!!! I am the oldest of six children and as I've said before on this blog things were tough growing up. That being said, this is the reason why I am close with all my siblings and when I found out my baby brother was going to be a daddy I coudn't have been happier! Well, my brother's girlfriend went into labour 2 days ago and I have been spending time at the hospital for the last two days. Well, it was definitely worth it because today at 6:41pm, my niece Elizabeth Theresa was born! We'll call her Ellie for short but she is the sweetest, most precious thing I have ever seen. Well I have been rambling on here for quite some time but I will let you be the judge of just how cute my niece is with a few pictures. Anyhow, things should start to mellow out and I will be back to regular posting. Until then, Happy Reading!!
