Happy Weekend

July 19, 2015 / by Liz

Hello and happy weekend! I figured it was about time to post a few pictures of the fun things I’ve been up to lately, and all the things that are making me happy :)

The CupCakery (where I work!) supplied about 1000 mini cupcakes, and an awesome cake for the 4th of July celebrations at the American Ambassador’s residence in Paris (see more photos here on DC Rainmaker’s Blog!). Both my Mama and I attended the event, and it was really something…

| Of course there was champagne… |

Right around this same time, my husband had arrived home in Newfoundland for a visit, and my Dad was getting ready to come to Paris to meet my Mom and I. I was worried that my parent’s dog, Amber, would be sad at home without them, but my Husband took really good care of her :)

| Pretty sure she’s having the time of her life in this picture… |

Shortly after my Dad arrived in Paris, we headed out of town to check out the Normandy area. The trip was really great, and the area was so beautiful – in fact, I’m already planning our next adventure to the French coast!

| Supper that evening at Restaurant Vue Mer. While this wasn’t exactly what we had intended to order, the food and service were great, and the giant tower of shellfish was humungous and hilarious. |
