BC for a bit.

I'm sitting in my parents living room at the moment. I just got back from saying goodbye to Mark at the airport and sending him on his way to Calgary, with my credit card, debit card, and license secretly stowing away in his backpack. Whoopsies! Luckily I married a patient man who has agreed to courier them to moi asap. I love him. While I was leaving the airport I kept turning around and waving again, and blowing kisses, and he did this hand signal that he grew up with that means 'I love you' and I tried to do it back but the keys in my hand made it pathetic and even though the sliding doors had just closed I could see him bending forward at the waist, laughing. I just love that he was standing amongst strangers in the security line at the airport and he just laughs out loud without restrain. His joy brings me joy.

I've had the best time in BC so far! One more week and I'll be back in Calgary, looking for a job, finishing up my online courses, and being a lil' homemaker again. :) I'm so blessed to have this time. I know it, you know? We were blessed to have time in California and meet wonderful people. I'm blessed that I was able to work while being home. I was beyond blessed to see two beautiful friends get married this past weekend, what a celebration! I was so happy to have Mark with me for the past four days. I'm looking forward to a road trip to Portland this weekend with my best girls, and seeing two more friends join together forever. Sigh...  living is so good. Here are some unchronologically ordered pictures of lately. 

Even got to see the scholarly Elizabeth Ashton in Vancouver because she headed off to join her man in the bush for another season. 
 There is wisteria growing in that tree! Pretty HEY? 
The venue for Lisa and Levi's wedding. Pretty HEY?!

I was so happy to be home in time to see the cherry blossoms! My fave. 

Tessa's new abode is my new favourite place. These two....

Tessa's only just moved it, but her house is so lovely already. 

She found this in her garage, what?! Jelly. 
The best place for BBQ's on unseasonably warm May evenings. 
We were famished after our bike ride. 
 Gin and tonics all day long. 
 We went to Hemlock for Lisa's staggette, which was so fun! 
Mark and I stayed in the guest room at Atangard after the wedding, which was nostalgic and awesome and included a delicious breakfast and surprise hearts on our bedroom door.  

Been spending some qual time with this one. 

Spent part of Mother's Day with this lovely lady and her brood. They are the best of the best. 

It's a good thing I offered to drive home after our visit with the Prangs. He was twitching and I was singing to tunes on The Beat.

Family time at the Mans'. We were missing Bruce and Lydia and Eli to the max. We try not to think of it, but it was mentioned numerous times. 
My mom and me, twenty five years ago. I hope my arms are that skinny after two little ones. I'm still always losing socks... that hasn't changed. 

I found this picture on Mark's phone and liked it. This was at Big Sur in California. Good time for a nap, ammiright?

Now I'm off to my... wait for it... FOURTH dentist appointment in two short weeks. Boo. Ciao for now mes amis.
