Two friends from church kidnapped me this past weekend, we called it a #PWnapping. They’d made arrangements with my hubby after BlissDom Canada was over… they all figured I could use an actual restful vacation, as opposed to going to Vegas I guess.
So Friday afternoon they showed up on my doorstep, told me to pack my things and I kissed my family good-bye.
Ruth, who also writes at Mom’s Musings, has an aunt and uncle in Cantley, Quebec (north of Gatineau, near Mont Cascades) a mere 6 hour drive from home. She’d made arrangements for us to stay with them. They not only gave us a comfy bed to sleep in but made us delicious meals all weekend long. I gained 3 pounds at least…
They were going to take me horseback riding on Saturday but when I found out that Cheryl had never been to our nation’s capital, we made going into Ottawa a priority. After all… we were only 30 minutes away!
Here are three pics from my favourite spots on Parliament Hill:

Way to go Ruth and Cheryl! It was a well deserved break!
Glad you guys had a good time!
It was so much fun! And actually relaxing! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself:-P
Love that you got to do a girl's getaway! I've wanted to do one forever.
What a great idea! It's hard to find get-away time…but you've inspired me.
