Vive les amis!

Last Friday, two of my dearest friends and my sister brought me to Montreal as a birthday surprise — 24 hours of overeating, strolling the streets, shopping (!!!) and a plain ol’ great girls’ getaway… something I haven’t done in far too long. A few pics of our antics and sights below…

Posing in front of a vent that created a crazy crosswind on the sidewalk we were walking along:

Ah, I’m so easily amused…

Delish dinner at “Au cinquième péché” (which I believe translates to “At the fifth deadly sin” — which is, of course, gluttony):

My sis and me, with our cherry blossom halos:

What a lucky lucky gal I am to be surrounded by such wonderful people. I gushed the whole time we were there. And did I mention I shopped?

The next day, John and I photographed his friend’s wedding — I was second shooter/assistant. I have a new appreciation for this job; it was TOUGH, and the frigid weather only added to the challenge. We took over 3400 shots between the two of us. This one I caught is one of my favourites — it’s of the couple’s 2-and-a-half-year-old near the end of the night… pooped!

I was thankful it was a long weekend because I needed half of Monday to recoup! All good things…

good peeps, in the memory bank , , , , ,

    You SO need to submit your wedding pic to National Geographic’s Your Shot site. So something they’d select. http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/your-shot/your-shot
