September 12, 2015


Yesterday was the last day of our amazing trip for Justin's birthday. In every way, every step of the way, we felt blessed. This is our gorgeous hotel at Niagara-on-the-Lake. They made our stay particularly special. It was hard to say goodbye to this lovely little town. I'm glad we made the most of it while we were here, seeing theatre, walking along the water, perusing quaint shops, traveling through vineyards, eating delicious meals! Everything was a treat.


Pie time! This was just the prep stage but I forgot to take a pic of the finished pie and now it's half eaten, hehe.


Today I went out and got some special props for my Etsy Boutique including this silver bowl which I was hoping would photograph well and does it ever! Well, after I cleaned it in a big way. It was a mess! I decided to make complimentary earrings for the evening bags I am selling so it's now a set! I can't believe how exciting I find everything about this store is. I don't know if it'll be a huge financial success but it is a ton of fun. I'm going to enjoy it for now and re-evaluate when life gets more financially challenging.

So smart to cook the filling Shannon and so sweet of you to make a pie for Jamie and Justin.
