Flowers for your Friday {Canada Day edition}

Yay! It's Canada Day! The official start to summer vacation! Brandi is here in Victoria, and we've got fun plans for celebrating the First of July. We're off to Fort Rodd Hill for the big Canada Day picnic by the sea {21-gun salute and the world's biggest cake, you say? no wonder the boys are beside themselves with excitement}. Hoping to show Brandi around our part of town, take her to a few of my favourite places, and get a chance to chat over many cups of tea as well. In the evening, we're leaving the boys at home and heading downtown to hear the music in the harbour and see the fireworks. We'll probably have to go for dinner at Pag's too, for the world's most delicious focaccia bread. When in Rome, right?

Happy Canada Day! Happy long weekend! Happy 4th of July for those of you south of the border! Happy summer! Have you got fabulous plans this weekend, too?

PS: Almost forgot... thanks to everyone who entered my little Canada Day giveaway! The winner of the Bella & Bean ring is Micaela. Couldn't have picked a lovelier girl, or a bigger fan of all things Etsy! Congratulations, M. Letter and pretty jewelry headed your way very soon...


  1. Congrats to Micaela!

    I didn't realize Canada Day and the 4th of July were so close to each other! I'm hosting a small party at our apartment but sadly my family lives elsewhere and a lot of friends are out of town. We've also been invited to another cookout on Monday evening. My city does a little celebration but I'm not sure if there are fireworks here or not. For the past four years I've always gone home on 4th of July weekend so it'll cool to see a different city's take on it!

  2. It always surprises me how close our countries' celebrations are! I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing holiday weekend, full of good food and lots of fun!
