My love + darling husband and I at Portland’s Brewfest.
Day 9 of 30 | Tumblr Challenge: A photo you took
My Godson with my husband (his Uncle + Godfather) going home from the Waterfront last month. It’s a recent photo of these two, and I love it because they’re both genuinely happy — plus, the look on my Godson’s face is just adorable.
I’m thankful for what I have been able to go through. When a good friend commented on how beautiful, intimate and sweet our wedding was, I couldn’t help but feel content knowing that the day was definitely felt like that. Although I would have loved to have invited EVERYONE I knew, the truth of the matter was that everyone who was there gave their full support & love to Mark and I’s union from the beginning — and that’s who I wanted to surround myself with. I’m truly blessed for having such an amazing family, good friends and such an incredible husband who, through everything we’ve been through, continues to love me and cherish me more and more everyday.
Our first dance on our wedding day. <3

Yesterday was beyond everything I could ask for. I had a GREAT wedding with AMAZING family, good friends, YUMMY food, tons of alcohol, photo booth fun — I could probably go on and on, but I won’t. This photo should just be an indication as to how I looked (I felt beautiful, gorgeous and wonderful!) and felt (silly, excited and just… happy). Mark found an Outlier Tailored sticker, so we stuck it on my bouquet (white & red roses) and snapped this quick photo. Needless to say, it’s the only photo from the day that I’ll share. The rest are in possession of my photographer & will soon be put into production. SO excited to see them all.
Basically, this is him (@MRKPMNTL) when he wakes up in the morning. I was cracking up SO HARD when he showed me this post. Literally best poster, EVAR.
hahaha best poster, EVAR!!
Seven in the morning and reporting from Minneapolis, MN, my last stop in the US before finally stepping foot back in the city of my birthplace. It’s been a few hours since I’ve left Portland to Los Angeles (an airport I refuse to have a stop over in again — it’s huge and there are too many hoops to go through to get to a connecting flight) and now here I am. Note to self: no more red-eye flights. Not only are my eyes killing me, but my body hates my guts right now for putting it through this — all worth it to see family, friends and Winnipeg again, right?
It’s hard to imagine that only six months ago I was saying goodbye to my hometown. Within those months, I moved into a new country & home, celebrated my 26th birthday, made a forever of commitment and so much more. For me, this took a lot of courage and strength to make it through this far, and I honestly don’t know where I would be without the people who have been supporting me this far.
It’s because of those people that Mark and I have been so lucky and blessed to have our wedding in Winnipeg. Less than two weeks remain until we say our vows in front of God and our family and friends — hence, my return back into Winnipeg. I’m excited though, and I can’t wait.
To my love: I’m so proud of you. After many nights of studying, exams to cram for, projects to finish, you’ve finally done it. You’ve worked so hard — you deserve this. I’m so happy for you, no one deserves this as much as you do. I love you and Congratulations. xo
It finally came — the card I’ve been waiting for. After loads of paperwork & money, days of worrying & waiting and two (intense) interviews, I am now an owner to a Green Card. I’m officially a US Permanent Resident!
Our wedding invitations. I’m in love with them because they suit us so well. *swoon*
So proud of him. Poster of my husband, the graduate. :)
