I know I've mentioned this before, but man do I love me a ferry ride.
It goes back to when we were kids on family trips on the west coast. I was born in Winnipeg, and we drove out to Victoria one year that turned out to be a pretty significant trip, considering that we moved there a few short years later and my longstanding and abiding love of the ferry.
Does that mean the same thing?
Whatevs. I love the ferry.

And this particular ferry ride was taking me on a 10 day vacation at the lake.
Which I also love.
So it was particularly exciting. And we got some great weather and watched the sun set from the car deck.
On Saturday we went to Parksville for Julie and Keith's wedding.
This was my first wedding of a friend, so I was pretty stoked. They didn't disappoint. It was very lovely and so sweet.
Julie made her dress and it was so amazing! Layers and layers of ruffles and raw silk. HELLO!
Woop! How did this one get in here?
After the wedding was my birthday. We spent it quietly up at the lake which was great. It was raining and we had the door open to hear the rain on the deck and I
R E A D A L L D A Y.
My family came up bearing sweets and my sister and I swam in the rain under a rainbow.
I kid you not there was an eagle that flew through it into a patch of blue sky.
The next day I went into town and hung out with the lovely and talented gals at Floating Gold Iceberg.
They made me cupcakes.
This doesn't really have anything to do with my birthday or cupcakes for that matter, but while I was there, Andy came home with Kim Catrall (Andrew McCarthy wasn't there though)
It was a really good trip back. I will admit that I was pretty loathe to leave this morning.
Last night we went out for a canoe ride (it had rained all day and the sky cleared up in the late afternoon) The lake was totally quiet, just the two of us out on the water.
Geoff asked me to marry him.
I said yes.
