Going Away BBQ

Our good friends, Katie and Dave, will be moving to Alexandria, VA next week. We hosted a going away BBQ for them last weekend.

I worked really hard pulling weeds and planting flowers the week before the BBQ only for it to rain all weekend - turning the outdoor BBQ into an indoor party. Rain or shine - we still had a wonderful time.

Hopefully Todd and Dave's career paths will cross again and we'll be living in the same city once again. We wish Katie and Dave all the best as they pack, move, and get settled into life in Northern Virginia! We'll miss you both so much!

THANKS to Todd, Kelly, Gracyn & Tucker for making this last year in Canada SO MUCH more exciting! We are so happy that we've become great friends! I'm certain we will see much more of each other in the future (even if the career paths don't cross)! :) Thanks again for a great party!

I love love love the sunflower cupcakes. I have to know just how you put it all together. Chocolate chips first, then icing or vice versa! So cute!
