so long july.

IMG_1191_2IMG_1196IMG_1255we celebrated the ending of june and the beginning of july with my nephew’s first birthday party. it was filled with children, sweets, presents, laughs, and much happiness. 

IMG_1275IMG_1311IMG_1312july 1 was canada day! we wore white and spent the night along the riverbank photographing fireworks. they were beautiful.

IMG_1524 IMG_1525 IMG_1529IMG_1535we had a few date nights where we tried out new restaurants. they were yummy!

photo-6-1i had an impromptu photo shoot with my mum and her (favorite) newfie. is she not the prettiest person ever?

IMG_2211then we had a family supper at little green. although it was only for my parents, brother, and sister and their spouses and little ones, it consisted of thirteen people! (fourteen if you count the little girl in my sister’s tummy.) the supper doubled as a going away party for my brother, his wife, and their two children who are moving across the country at the end of this week.

IMG_1914luckily, i got to enjoy some quiet, early mornings like these with my girl holly.

IMG_1856 IMG_1862then it was time for my niece’s birthday party. this time there were even more family members, presents, laughs, and food.

IMG_2293we had my dad come and stay with us for a night.

IMG_2190 IMG_2193 IMG_2197we also managed to get another date night in where we went to my favorite old theatre and saw the iceman. it was a fantastic film!

IMG_2202of course, it wouldn’t be a successful month without selling dozens of items from the hello scarlett store.

IMG_1865 IMG_1871IMG_1882IMG_1899 as always, our evenings came to an end with a long walk in our neighbourhood. i will never, ever grow tired of living next to the river. neither will holly or truman.

IMG_1904july was a very busy but at the same time a very fun month! i hope that next month we can find more time to slow down and enjoy the warm weather before fall starts creeping in. :-)

see you all in august!
