Thank you everyone for your kind words on the recent passing of my grandfather. Any comment, text message, like of a picture or hug of console I got from a friend meant wonders to the family and I. We are all doing all right, and the one positive that came from everything was seeing the family again and spending a lot of time together. I think I went over to my cousin Lindsay's at least 3 times that week and spent a lot of time with cousin Brittany.
Spring in the City
We've had a bit of a crazy spring with the weather being so up and down! For one week, we'd have nothing but humidity and temperatures of summer.
And I love taking evening walks around my own neighbourhood.
Look how close this duck came to us! I bet she thought we had bread!
A Portfolio Show in Downtown Toronto
Our friend, Cristina recently graduated from a post-grad program in Copywriting and held a little portfolio show in downtown Toronto one evening. A few friends and I went down to support her and catch some of the awesome - and very witty, might I add - portfolios of the graduates.
She even got one of these cool business cards - which I just know she loved ;)
New Cousin Timothy
A few months back, we had a small addition to our family - Little Cousin Timothy! Some of our distant cousins held a "meet and greet" at their parents' place to welcome the little tyke into the family.
This was a neat idea for thank you cards: the parents dressed Timothy in all the clothes he received as gifts and would write a thank you message at the back for the giver.
So much dessert :)
Do you remember little Bobby?
I hadn't seen him since August and my, how he's grown since!
He actually took a liking to Timothy's bed...
And made sure to play lots of catch ;)
While the parents watched the baseball game like it was the playoffs:
Speaking of baseball, with spring here it meant we also made it out to some baseball games!
In fact, I couldn't just space it out and ended up going to two night games in a row.
And that's about the gist of what's been going on lately! This was more like one of my 'Happy Friday' posts, which I'm hoping will come back by next month :)
I'm off to get some din din - hope everyone's been having a nice start to their week!
