Happy Easter Friends!

Okay friends let’s begin the Easter fun!

Once again, Happy Easter! I hope you all have a lovely weekend doing whatever you traditionally (or not so traditonally do). I’m off to see the families, so lots of driving all over Ontario. Good thing I will have all that chocolate to keep my energy up.

Take care everyone!

  1. Oh my gosh, those ladies from 1925! Their coats, their hats, their shoes!! I absolutely love everything they’re wearing. I have a beautiful photo of a great uncle and aunt when they got married on Easter Monday in the 1920s. They both look so amazing! xx
