A Wonderful Holiday...

I'm baaaaack! The girls and I had such an amazing time in Victoria and Sidney! My heart and spirit are still there - I guess that's what happens to all of us when we come back from holidays, doesn't it? I treated the girls to 2 nights stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria - in a word - stunning. That is a place I have passed by countless times in my past and always dreamed of one day staying there - so we did. We were such little tourists there, exploring all kinds of attractions and time just flew by. While in Sidney, we enjoyed lots of walks along the ocean front and a day at Sidney Spit, a beautiful sandy beach you can only reach by boat. I was also able to take the girls to the High School I attended as it was open and to my surprise, my Class Graduation picture was hanging in the hall. The girls tried their hand at shrimping for the first time and it was so much fun watching my little city slickers taking the shrimp out of the net that they caught.

I used to live in Sidney as a young girl and it has changed so much, for the better. Or is it that one has a different appreciation for things as we get a little older and wiser?

I'm easing in to the reality of being back home in Edmonton and the girls are back at school as of today. September will bring regular schedules and routines back in to our lives and although we love the summer, it's always nice to welcome the coming fall season.

Hope you all have enjoyed your summer as much as I have - I'm wishing you much love, happiness and success in all that you do as we go forward in to the busy seasons ahead.

Love Dawn ♥xox

Oh Sweets this is wonderful!! I'm SO happy to hear you all had a fabulous holiday and even more delighted to hear the girls want to move. No surprise though as the area looks gorgeous!

Follow your dreams, as I know you will, and they'll come true soon enough.
