  • Our first trip to the US together

    The last weekend in April my parents and Eddie and I are taking a trip into Maine to Bangor to hopefully buy material for the wedding. We will be staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage in New Brunswick for 4 nights and will be making at least one day trip into the US.

    Eddie and I are so excited. It is his first trip to the US. We went and got a passport for him the other day specifically for this trip. He’ll need it anyways for our honey moon. It’s soon going to be time to start planning the trip.

    We are planning for the weekend to go to Jo-Ann Fabric in Bangor. We have the pattern’s already for the wedding dress and for the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. I can’t wait to get started on them.

    The wedding dress is just a regular dress pattern. But we are going to turn it into a wedding dress using charmeuse and lace. I can’t wait to get started on it. Mom and I are going to sew it together. We are making all the dresses. We are also doing the food ourselves, cold platters and we are doing all the decorations ourselves. [...]

  • Christmas Tree Lighting

    I have not been to a Christmas tree lighting in Digby since my last year of high school in 1997 so I was really happy when Mom told me we were going tonight! Cory and I traveled in a bit early, went to McDonalds for lunch and then for a drive to the Digby ferry. I did not get a picture as we didn’t get close enough. However we stopped on the way back at the Digby Pines which is a beautiful old wooden railway hotel built in 1905. I took the picture below from the road so it is not the greatest image but you can see it’s beauty and can see a better picture by clicking the link above.

    We then wet for a drive first down Lighthouse Road in Digby. I wanted to get a picture of the lighthouse in the snow but the road was too bad and I did not want to chance it in a car without winter tires on a very hilly and dangerous at the best of times road. After that we headed out of the snow and down Digby neck. I wanted to visit my Nanny and Grampy’s and my Uncle’s Denton and Mark’s graves in Centerville but I drove by saying we would stop on the way back and we never did. [...]
