Glorious Morning Sun

My cilantro plants have flowered and this morning the sun was shining so beautifully upon them.  I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures.

Reno Revisited

How was your weekend?  Did you enjoy the sunshine?

We had a great weekend and the big highlight was having our renovation featured in Saturday's Globe and Mail newspaper.  The print version looked fantastic but if you didn't get a chance to pick up a copy, here's the article online.

It's hard to believe that it's been nearly two years since we moved back in and couldn't help but reminisce about the whole process.  I looked back through my old photos of the reno and found these little gems that I hadn't posted on the blog before.  I loved taking pictures of the house prior to drywall and looking at these again reminded me that any creative project - whether its having kids, building a house, making pictures, music, or paintings - is often messy, painful, chaotic, and ultimately leads to something beautiful that you will love.

This morning...

...I had a couple of little errands to run and promised the boys we'd go out for crepes when we were done.  Crepes are one of my favourite indulgences and they taste so much better when you enjoy them at the charming and cute Le Marche St. George.  Be sure to stop by when you in the Main/Fraser area.  The first set of pictures were taken while we waited for our order, and the shots against the wall were taken afterwards.  I couldn't resist shooting the boys against that wall in their stripey shirts.

This bouquet was quite irresistible. I had to get a couple of pictures of it.
