Spring has really set in and the hubs and I enjoyed our week together. It was almost as if we celebrated our anniversary everyday last week! We had a fancy dinner at an amazing restaurant on Monday and saw ‘The Artist’ at an independent theater afterwards. We had lunch at the pub one day and beers with fries on St. Patty’s day. Sunday we rode the ferry and had a little pita picnic on Wolfe Island. It was such a beautiful week. Also keep your fingers crossed as J had a job interview this morning that seemed very successful! Yay!

I do hope you have a lovely day!
