It's Friday and that means it's time to celebrate. Funny that when you are a kid, Friday is the best day of the week because it's a break from school. As a young adult, it's a break from work. But as a parent, it looses a bit of it's luster because you know you have to take care of your kids all weekend and deal with their activities and needs. Then Monday becomes your favorite day.
Anyhoo, thanks to our wonderful host Lexa Cain, and her co-hosts: L.G. Keltner and Tonya Drecker. Let's get it started!
I missed last week's Celebrate the Small Things because I was driving up to Canada with the family for my husband's cousin's wedding in Caledon, Ontario. It was held at a beautiful place out in the countryside called Cambium Farms.

The groom's family hailed from Sweden and during the speeches, the sister of the groom had her daughter, Elsa, and a family friend, Anna, come to the podium for a song. I know what you're thinking, but they didn't sing Let It Go (thank goodness), but a traditional song that was quite lovely. I can't tell you more because they sang it in Swedish.
While in Canada, we stayed at the Mariott's Fairfield Inn in Brampton and here was our favorite part:
The breakfast bar was awesome as well. The day after the wedding, there was a catered lunch featuring Caribbean cuisine and a steel drum band at the home of the bride's parents. They had a huge tent in their backyard and the whole thing was surrounded in the most gorgeous flowers. The partying at the reception went so late they forgot to cut the cake, so they did this at the lunch instead. We all
pigged out enjoyed the amazing cake, cupcakes, and ice cream.
What a weekend!
What did you do last weekend? Do you have a special wedding venue to share? Ever been in a hotel with a water slide?
