Friday's Fave Five

It's been another exciting week.
I love looking back at the happy moments of my week.
Thanks Susanne for hosting this wonderful site.

National Volunteer Week, April 15-21.
It's a week where we honored all our hard working volunteers.
It's been a privilege working with this group of people over the past five years.

Our volunteers have brought us skills, advice, experience, friendship and inspiration to our organization and also their amazing gift of  TIME!
And we thanked them with a small token..a rose.
Thanks to Little Mountain Greenhouses for their generous support.

Remember, last week we were wedding dress shopping?
Well, we all met up in New Westminster for coffee.
I enjoyed watching the sister's excitement, anticipation and hearing their laughter.

The Maid of Honor was ecstatic!
For a minute you'd think she was the bride....

Then came the serious question about 'the budget' for the dress....
They were hoping there Dad was paying....

We enjoyed sifting through the gowns...stretching to see what else we could find.

Then we found it......

Oh my, I had two excited gals.
And we bought it!

I'm so excited that the Canucks won their game against LA.
It was a pleasure to see the Sedin twins back at work..

Hope you had a great week.
