Summer show and tell:
I got a bike!
Mike's mom gave me her bike to ride around the city- she got it 52 years ago and she's a beaut. I wish I had bought a bike sooner.
I got a studio!
Sandi and I finally stopped working out of our homes and got our own workspace. It's perfect in every way. We are putting the final touches on Falconwright's fall collection and I am PUMPED.
I got a puppy!
Here's my new dog Ollie (right) pictured here with her bro Bugsy who was adopted by my brother Wes. She is a maniac but a loveable one.
I killed almost every plant I grew!
Seriously. If you read this space last summer you would have seen I was all about gardening. This year is the year of neglect- I have killed herbs, cactii, succulents; the casualty list goes on and on... I did get about 12 baby tomatoes from our pots on our porch. Meh. I'll try harder next year.
I went on vacation!
Not a far away one but spent some time in the Georgian Bay area where I grew up, chilling on some beaches with Mike. We both got big time sunburns.
And I got engaged!After almost 8 years of being together Mike and I are tying the knot!! Getting married was one of those things we've always wanted to do (because weddings are FUN) but never got around to doing it (money, time, blahblah). I didn't think getting engaged would change anything but have to admit I'm more excited about the future and even more appreciative of the wonderful guy I have in my life.
