6 Years of Love

I became a wife 6 years ago on the very day, Tuesday February 24th 2009 at 2pm to my very handsome husband. We wed on a cruise ship int eh middle of the Caribbean Sea in front of 30 of our closest friends and family. I could not have asked for anything better to happen that day, and could not have been happier with how the whole day turned out. I still remember it like it was yesterday and the truth is who doesn’t remember there wedding as it should be one of the happiest days of your life and mine was.
To describe this perfect day as I remember it. The sky was blue with perfect puffy white clouds, the water was crystal blue and sparkled with the hot sun shining off of it. (That truthfully was all I was hoping for as I’m from Canada and the end of February is most likely freeing cold). As my now husband was standing at the end of the aisle waiting for me to walk down, dressed in his white suite (yes, I wanted a white wedding and had asked all my gust to be dressed in a shade of white) All I was thinking was that I could not have been happier person with the decision I was about to make.
Yes in the past 6 years we have had our ups and downs, our cries and kisses, but to this day I could not happier with the man that I call my best friend, my soulmate, my rock. He is the one that brings a smile to my face everyday, makes me laugh so hard I cry, and picks me up when I am down.
I would like to wish my very handsome husband a happy 6th anniversary and to many more wonderful years with you.

Mrs. Long






To be Thankful!

As I am Canadian I had my thanksgiving last month but I am still thinking of all of my American friends and how they were all celebrating yesterday.
I have many things to be thankful for starting with my family. I am very thankful for the family I have, for the family I have married into and for the family I have started. My parents have raised me well and have taught me the way of life and to them I am thankful for the my life I have. To my mother in law, she has welcomed me with open arms like a daughter of her own and has treated me the very best from the start. And to my husband, He is my best friend, my partner and the love of my life. He has been amazing to me since the day we met. We have traveled many places together and plan on going to many more. We all so started a family together and I could not be more thankful for that. We have borough into the world two amazing boys that I love to watch grow and learn each day. They are my life!
It is true what they say, being a momma is the best job in life and to that I am thankful!
I hope all of you had a wonderful thanksgiving weather it was yesterday or last month!


Wedding day!

I have been a little MIA this past week as I was planning and taking part in my brothers wedding. We spent most of last week finishing up the centerpieces, putting together favors and making sure the wedding was going to go off with a bang and that it did! My brother and his now wife had a amazingly beautiful wedding day. I have very little pictures of the day as my phone was locked up inside the bridal suite for most of the night and by the time I got it, it was time to dance the night away. And yes that is were I spent the rest of the night on the dance floor.
Here are a couple of picture I took before we took off and from the week as we put the deportations together.
I had so much fun planing this wedding and was so happy I could help!!!
Maybe I should take up being a wedding plannner :)!

It’s another grey day in the city and I’m not feeling to colorful. The outfit I have put together is showing everyone my mood and how I’m feeling, a little dull with a crazy pattern. Guess I should be used to this as August has been more grey and cool then sunny and hot.
The only thing exciting about my outfit today is my necklace. I have had it for 5 years now and purchased it on a cruise ship when my husband and I got married. I have loved this piece of jewelry ever since the day I saw it. It’s just one of those piece to me that will always be my go to accessory.
Well here is what I’m wearing today!






Top; Zara / Jeans; forever21 / Shoes; Just Fab.


Yesterday my husband and I were nominated to do the very viral ALS ice bucket challenge. We accepted, donated and have challenged 3 others to do the same.
This challenge is amazing at how viral it has become and how much awareness it has brought to wards this awful disease. The donations are coming in and more and more people are now aware of what it is and how it affects people living with it. To me is was important to be part of this awareness as I my cousins husband is living with ALS and to see and hear what them as a family has to go through.
I also found this great post on how another family thinks of the ice bucket challenge and felt I should pass it along for others to please read.

Bo Stern – what an ALS family really thinks.

I also want to share this video on how this challenge all started.
Pete’s Challenge

All I can say is please if you haven’t donated already to do so because every little bit counts.

My Boys!

These guys are my pride and joy. They fill my heart with so much happiness and keep me going every day. They are the busiest of boys that never stop and are on the move from sun up till sun down. These two love their sand, mud, dirt, water, trucks, trains, and cars. If it doesn’t move, have wheels, make noise, fly, or if it can’t dig they do not want anything to do with it.
Here are a couple of outfits that I find are durable for these two busy body’s because to me if they don’t wash well, they don’t wear them.
The clothing below is a mix of Gymboree, H&M, Joe Fresh, Osh Kosh, Roots kids, Target and The Children Place.
