You may not know this about Mike and I… but we’re an auction family! Well, him and his family are. I came along for the ride the moment he and I started dating.
Wards Auctions has been around for many, many, MANY years. Mikes Dad (sarcastic, funny, smartass. Just like him!) is the fabulous auctioneer and the leader of the pack, and the whole dang fam jam helps out. Mikes Mom, Jayne, is the “Auction Goddess”, and his siblings and I are there as well helping out when we are needed.
Mike and I are ALWAYS in the office during auction days. I’m the auction princess and he’s the one who makes everything work and he makes our lives much easier with his “can fix any problem and answer any question” ways. He’s Wards wonder child. He knows it. We all knows it.
So, if you’re an auction buff, know someone who is or even a virgin auction-going newbie (welcome to the dark side!), you should check us out! DO IT.
Don’t live in or near Edmonton? Excuses, excuses. Well, we’re online! So no excuses for you! 😉
This past weekend was a lovely one. Mike and I drove to Calgary to visit with my family and spend some time in Banff. We had such a lovely time.
I decided I needed some extra family time, so I’m staying in Calgary for the next few days or maybe longer, we shall see. Mike left last night and made it safely back to Edmonton. I remember when we used to have a long distance relationship when we first started going out, and the hardest part was always those last few minutes before one of us left the other to go home. It kinda felt like that all over again last night.
But, it’s been lovely seeing my family and Mike will be back soon to get me and take me back. It’s just hard being away from him, is all. I’m sure most of you know the feeling. This whole “missing you” emotion really is a hard one. I sure do love that boy 🙂
On another note, it’s absolutely gorgeous here in Calgary! I’ve already went for a long run, took my puppy Vienna out for a long walk and enjoyed my smoothie and Beauty Detox Foods book on the patio! And it’s not even 10am yet! I really forgot how much I loved this area of the city too, so calm and pretty. Right beside a huge natural park. My parents are lucky ducks to live here 🙂
I’ve attached some of the photos from our little day trip to Banff. It was Mikes first time there too! I’m happy I was able to be his lovely tour guide.
The title says it all, my lovelies. I. Am. Terrible! I haven’t posted on here in forever! Longer than forever even! Life got in the way a little bit, but I promise to continue to grace you with my charm & wit from now on!
…Until the next time I’m terrible.
I’m off to Calgary tomorrow to visit with family & spend some time in Banff as well, which I’m CRAZY excited for! 🙂
I shall post more while I’m there on this bloggy blog and my other one! I hope you’re all doing lovely.
