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.

Love
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 :)!

Hello World

Hello,
I have decided to join the blogging world. I feel like I might be a little late, but the way I am looking at it is it’s better late then never.
I love DIY projects. Doing little projects around the house with my free time is something that makes me happy. My favorite things to make are things for my boys. They are my pride and joy and anything for them is what I will do.
I also love to make my own jewellery. I would love to be a jewellery designer one day but right now it’s just not in the cards. For now I just keep making pieces for myself and girlfriends when they ask. Hopefully soon I can sell some pieces I have made and make others just as happy as I am when worn out. Every girl should have some sparkle in their life.
Thanks for stoping by and I hope you will enjoy the things in my life as much as I do.

Xo.
Kyra
