There is a lot to love about Lydia & Sam's wedding. Their wedding was at the Iron Horse Ranch in Ontario's beautiful countryside on a perfect summer day. We thought it was going to rain on us during the ceremony, but we were lucky we could put the umbrellas away shortly after the guests took them out. Gabe and I had such a great time hanging with their friends and family and I am in love with the colours they chose for their wedding! The boys looked so dapper and the girls were gorgeous.
Lydia & Sam are a perfect couple to work with. They are so easy going yet, they knew what they wanted from the beginning and how to get it executed. I loved their attention to detail and their wedding turned out just as perfect as their adorable engagement session.
Congratulations Lydia & Sam! I am so happy for you both!
I am physically not off to Breda (I wish!), but this letter I wrote is going there. I just took an evening walk to the post box and dropped this off.
Sometimes when friends are so far away, a phone call or an email just isn't enough. I am hoping I will have more time to write to friends, near and far this coming winter.
Things have been a little quiet on this blog lately, but I promise you, things are bubbling under the surface. I just can't show them to you yet!

A few weeks ago, it was full on tomato season (and maybe it still is?) and Jen had Melinda and I over for the second year for a full weekend of tomato canning! This year, we had a little supervisor to make sure we were doing things right (Jen's sweet foster cat, Blossom).
We did so much with the tomatoes! We peeled, boiled, roasted, or chopped depending on what we were making it for. And then we sealed them in the jars so that we can enjoy them all year round.
It is was a lot of work, but it is always worth it in the end.
Jen kindly tallied up the totals for us! We made all of this with 3 bushels of tomatoes over two very long days.
1.75L of basil ketchup
5L regular ketchup
15L tomato sauce
8L crushed tomatoes
4L charred tomato sauce
2L charred salsa
7.75L zesty salsa
I was quite impressed with our results.
Yesterday, Jin and I celebrated 3 years of marriage and we went out for a really nice dinner. Jin had mentioned he was looking for something to hold his business cards and I found him this one from Makr. He loved it!
It was so nice to spend some time with Jin, we both have been pretty busy lately so we had a lot to catch up on. I have been to some really beautiful weddings and lucky to be part of some really exciting projects. I cannot wait to show them to you!
I've been so occupied, I didn't realize summer had left us already. I had to find my coat this morning!
