Today my best friend and I had a date. We had planned this date a long time ago when I was back in Whitehorse because we wanted to carve out a day where we could just be together and catch up.
Little did we know that just after we made those plans, that her sweetheart would propose to her, so our little date took on a whole new meaning....wedding talk! I'm so very excited for my best friend Amy and her soon to be husband Anthony and just talking about their wedding today made me so excited for their summer nuptials. (side note. isn't her ring so pretty?)
So our girl's day out consisted of a nice drive up to Wakefield QC and a yummy lunch at our favourite restaurant Pot Au Feu (it's where Winslow took me right before he proposed to me). We had a lovely lunch of sweet potato soup, a roasted veggie sandwich for Amy and the delicious salad bar for me and we enjoyed our lunch while catching up.
We then took a nice walk along the Gatineau River, stopped by a sweet store where we picked up some cute Christmas decorations (for next year) and took many pictures along the way. It was so good to have that time together and just what we both needed.
And then tomorrow I get to do Amy and Anthony's engagement pictures ....I'm so excited I can't tell you!
I may live hundreds of thousands of kilometers from my best friend and I may not get to see her as much as I like, but it's amazing how we can pick up right where we left off from the last time.
