Welcome to the weekend : : Happy Easter!

Wow, today could not have turned out to be more of a beautiful Good Friday. It’s stunningly bright outside and it’s finally starting to warm up here in Montreal. My mother always hosts Good Friday dinner where she makes her “soul food” fish (good old Caribbean snapper). I went over there last night to help her prep today’s shindig and it makes me realize jut how much I love her and how important family is. Pearl Jam said it best “Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love,.. Some folks just have one,yeah, others, they’ve got none”. I’m so grateful to have so many people in my life that make each and everyday better than the last. My sweet loving mother, my big brother and one of my closest friends, my oh so awesome little dude (nephew) Cedrick, JBW who is also my best friend that I come home to every day, my sweet in-laws Diane and Kevin, as well as my sister-in-law Jennifer and her pretty adorable daughter Lyona and finally Grand-Maman Marie-Rose who turned 95 this month (which we celebrated last weekend).

What can I say about Grand-Maman Marie-Rose? What a strong, beautiful and amazing lady. She is so loving and caring and just oozes with happiness. I have to say she is probably the person that inspires me the most to embrace life and family every moment. She sure does! If we could all be so lucky to live this long and get to see our children, grand-children and great-grand-children grow up. To make sure we could save these memories forever, I had my friend that I love so much come and take pictures of this celebration.

Here is the marvelous ribbon cake made by my good friend Chris from The Real Chef Woo Catering in collaboration with her sister Tina from Finement Sucré.

Remember the DYI I posted here for the Pearled Numbers? I am pretty satisfied with the end-result and everybody just adored them. We replaced any kind of extra decor from the ribbon cake with these and it was perfect.

The day was filled with laughter and joy and was all captured by this awesome chick that manage to take this cool shot! Did I mention that I’m grateful for her too?!
