Forty years ago today, we set out on a journey together as husband and wife. A few years later , the ‘table for two’ became 3 then 4 then 5. A decade and a half later (ish) two flew the coupe then a few years later our baby left the roost.
Over the following years additions to the families of our precious offspring eventually increased the number of ‘arrows in our quiver’ to 13! We look forward to a gathering of this precious group very soon but today on the day of our 40th wedding anniversary, it’s a lakeside table for two (even dusted off the wedding china!)
Side note: We planned to eat our yummy dinner of blue cheese encrusted tenderloin and strawberry pecan salad in the porch then decided the outdoor photo would be more impressive. The temperature went from 25 C to 30 something in the short time we prepped dinner! We ended up wimping out and retreated to enjoy the view from the cool air conditioning inside our little house on the lake.
Loving life together!
May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace.
Our daughter’s Vizsla loves to try and catch droplets of water kicked up by the kids. I took dozens of burst images to capture some of his crazy contortions. This was my favourite.
Hope you have some fantastic summer vacation plans!

Be water smart this summer. Wear your life jacket when boating!
July could be considered the month of fireworks in North America as both Canada on the 1st and the United States on the 4th celebrate anniversaries of their formation as countries. This year will mark 150 years for Canada!
Where ever and when ever you enjoy lights in the sky this month do so responsibly.
Ah, summer – season of abundant and changing colours! The wildflowers along roadways take their turns throughout the months of May through August.
In June, the lupins stand tall in the ditches in our town but this year along one particular street, they were joined by columbine! Turns out a friend of mine who lives across the street there has been tossing wildflower seeds there. We can’t wait to see what will bloom next.
