:::Happy Endings:::

Who doesn't love a story with a happy ending right!
So here's a little story for you. Sit back, grab a coffee and enjoy.

We met these 2 incredible couples while vacationing in Cuba. 
(I know I've talked it about it on the blog before..)
We found out a couple days into the trip that Mike and Michelle planned on getting married just the two of them while we were there.
Insert us. 
Wa-la! The new wedding party and only 4 other people at the wedding. 
And we had only known them a couple days.

 BUT that won't stop us from being forever ever friends! :) 

Luckily we all live in Canada, both of them live in BC. 
So this was a couple years ago when Justin and I were on our BC road trip we made a plan for us all have dinner and it was just like Cuba times - minus the crappy weather, cigars and B52's. 

Well back to Michelle and Mike. 
Without getting into details, they have had a very rough go since Cuba starting a family and decided a year ago (this past Christmas) to start the adoption process.

Well look what they have now!
 Sweet Isla Harper.
1 year from the time they started the process they were chosen by a birth Mom.
And on March 2nd the adoption was finalized and we could not possibly be happier for them.
Now we just need to make another BC trip so I can get my cuddle on with Isla. :)
 Big sister Lucy.

 I went with the beach theme for the gift we sent since we met on a beach.
Clever I know. ;)
Check out that bikini though - I mean really, could there be anything cuter?!

 So the moral of my story is:
The end.
