It's starting to feel like Dan and I are actually going to get married! I knew that we were, but you know how it is when you dream so much you don't know when (or if) the reality will ever come.
I went home this weekend for my dear friend Malorie's wedding (to Dan Enns). Malorie was the tuck lady at camp this last summer and we had a wonderful two months together. She gave me lots of advice and shared her wedding worries and joys with me, so it was nice to have a pre-cursor to my own engagement and wedding. Their wedding was held at Southern Alberta Bible Camp and it was lovely. The reception was in the gym and you would not have even know it was a gym...mini lights, Japanese lanterns and black curtains can do wonders for a big ugly room! (I'll post a picture when I can) She of course looked fantastic and was no doubt overjoyed that she could finally marry her man - and that the wedding stress was near over!
Many of the people at their wedding were people I knew back from my high school camp days - those that I was close with when I first was a counselor and that kind of thing. Those days feel so long ago...it was nice to talk to those people, but it sort of felt like a time warp.
Mom and I also went wedding dress shopping this weekend. I did indeed find my wedding gown after trying on about 15 different dresses. The one we ended up getting was one I had orginally passed over since I didn't like one part of it, but once I put it on my opinion changed! So as my dad said, I don't need anything else to get married, there's a boy, a ring and now a dress!

This last Tuesday Lindsey and Raelene and I decided to go out into the world and have a fun day! (These are girls from school, and we don't have classes on Tuesday) We decided to go to Lake Louise for a hike, so we all packed a lunch and headed out early Tuesday morning. We did a fairly steep 3.4 km hike up to the tea house at Lake Louise.It was a beautiful day!
We've decided to make every Tuesday fun, but our activities have to be active or educational in nature...so next week we're going to the Glenbow Museum to take in the Eygpt, Greece, and Rome exhibit. We are pretty excited about our adventures, and have even convinced some of our classmates to join us next time.
I'm really enjoying school this semester. So far anyway. I'm just learning that there is so much more to life than just school - it's still a priority, but there is still room for other things in life too! It's great to be learning that.

Since I don't work at camp anymore, I will start a new blog. Not to make excuses or anything, but I don't have internet access quite yet in the comfort of my own home, so needless to say, all you faithful readers will have to wait a little longer to get more information about my life...until then!
