These pictures were taken the third week of March; look how high the snowbanks are!
I wore this to a fundraiser with my friend G. Someone brilliantly decided to market it as a 'Dessert Extravaganza'. Trading dinner for cupcakes and other petits fours sucrés? Sign me up! Facetiousness aside, the fundraiser was organized by the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society. Cancer has afflicted both our families so this was a cause dear to us. I was not as deep-pocketed as most of the (surgically enhanced) attendees but judging by the fierce bidding over a Chanel purse during the live auction, a lot of money was raised. Yay!
The drive to the event took us along the Ottawa River, and just before sunset. G gamely navigated the puddles to get these shots. On a related note, G has toyed with the idea of starting her own blog, perhaps writing about her experiences as a mom and wife. I've been encouraging her because I've found being in the blogging community so positive. If you guys have words of wisdom or advice for G, leave them below!
