Weekend Weddings

This past weekend my husband and I traveled to Kitchener, Ontario for the wedding of my cousin's son.

The wedding day itself was rainy, but we made the most of the experience catching up with family I haven't seen in years. What a special treat to reconnect with Dutch family members. I heard tons of stories about my mother and father and their first experiences in Canada. We ended up staying out until 1 in the morning chatting away and catching up.

Robert & I decided to make a weekend of it by staying at the beautiful Langdon Hall in Cambridge, Ontario. What a gorgeous little country retreat with cozy rooms and delicious food. Mmmm! I especially liked the gardens, which make mine look like a shoebox!

It was a great weekend away that gave both Robert & me a chance to rejuvenate before the start of another busy week. I hope you too take time for yourself to relax and unwind. We all tend to work so hard to provide our families with the best and we can forget the importance of taking a holiday however short or long, however far away or close to home.
