Say Cheese-Rewind to January

I haven't posted any Iphone picurtures in a while.
Like I said, I've been busy.
I thought I would go back to the beginning of the year and share some of my favourite pictures.
 Visiting with the Evans girls in Oakville. Going for a walk in the park so you gotta bring your babies!
 I always get so excited when I see the food drive baskets in our local Starbucks stores!
 Picking a new winter hat. Option #1. (Winner)
 Option #2.
 Me and Flowie in NY to celebrate Grammie's 90th birthday. We got in big trouble for driving in a snow storm. Heh heh.
 Ice fishing with the cousins on Pleasant Lake. My favourite place in the whole world.
 All suited up for a big YSM event. Ready to take over the world!
 Meeting the amazing Gordon Pinsent at a YSM video shoot for Coldest Night of the Year.
 Toronto Actor, Ennis Esmer lends his talent to our cause. He's one funny guy!
 The first flowers Mr.Wonderful gave me! So beautiful.
 The second flowers Mr.Wonderful gave me. A dozen pink roses delivered to my office.
Is he a keeper or what?
 Meeting Mr.Wonderful's family for the first time at a Chinese banquet. Complete with Chinese Karaoke. Wow.
 On the radio promoting Coldest Night of the Year. Mom always said I had a face for radio!
 Super cute sweater that I got from the Nathalie-Roze & Co. Uber-Swap.
Starbucks. All in a day's work in the land of Julia!


Timing is everything.

If you haven't already read the beginning of this story stop right now!
Go here.
Read that part first and then come back.

As I reflect on new years eve I wonder to myself what it was about that night that made me see Mr.Wonderful in a new light.
Something had changed for me. But what?
There was a definite shift from friend to the potential for more. But why then. Why that night?
Was it the conversation I had with Ali Raney the day before?
I don't really know how or why it happened then. Why it wasn't a year ago or a year from now.
But as I "say" that out loud I realize that I do know why.

It was part of God's plan.

It was the perfect time where we were both ready and willing to take a huge leap of faith and put ourselves out there.
To risk.
To try.
To be bold.
I'm so glad that we did.

Stay tuned for more details.


It's been a while

It's been a while since I posted.
Bad blog etiquette I know.
I apologize.
I've missed you and I know you've missed me.
But I have a valid excuse, I've been a busy girl.
A very busy girl falling in love!

To say that my life has changed in the past four months would be the understatement of the century. My world has been turned upside down in the most wonderful and unexpected way ever.

Let me start from the beginning.
On new years eve 2011 I started hanging out with a guy, let's call him Mr.Wonderful.
I'd known him for a few years. I guess you could have called us friends. We had hung out a few times in group settings but nothing more than that.
So I knew that he was a nice guy.
I could see that he was handsome.
It was obvious that he was the kind of guy that everyone likes because he is so kind, giving, caring and fun.
I was intrigued.
There was something about him that night that made me want to get to know him better.
I think he felt the same.
This is where it all began. The first picture of us together.
Stay tuned for more of the story. It's a good one, trust me!
