Blog Birthday

When I started TrenaEverAfter, my expectations were nothing more than for me to have a creative outlet to share my scatterbrained emotions with whoever would read them. At the time I expected that would merely be a few close friends, Tyler and maybe the odd person stopping by from WordPress.

Summer 2013

I truly cannot believe that the last weekend of summer 2013 has come and gone. Kids are back to school today, the days are getting shorter and the chilly mornings of Autumn are among us. I must say that I did not plan on being away from the blog for all of August but when summer calls one must be ready to answer.

Golf For Girls

Yesterday I had the opportunity to participate in yet another wonderful Kinette Club of Calgary event; the third annual Golf for Girls Tournament. This charity event was held at River Spirit Golf Club (27 km West of Calgary) in support of Sonshine Community Services. Hand in hand, this beautiful 27 hole golf course that is nestled on the edge of the Rocky Mountains and this amazing cause that provides a safe place for victims of domestic violence (as well as many other services) came together for an unforgettable day of golf, giving back, and good times.

Isn’t she lovely?

Monday again?? How did that happen? Chalk it up to another busy weekend celebrating the marriage of our wonderful friends Danielle and Chad!

This wedding was outdoors at the Dennis’ family cabin northeast of Edmonton, AB and I must say that all the hard work and planning that Danielle and co. put into this event really paid off. This was an amazing wedding with all the details and decor to go along with it. It fit Danielle’s personality to a tee!

I met Danielle when I was 15 years old. We played on the same  softball team for a few years and were instant friends. We lost touch for a few years and it wasn’t until I took a trip around the world and ended up back in Edmonton that we were reunited again through playing ball. Danielle and I have always had a lot of fun together and she is one of the most energetic, outgoing wonderful gals that I know. She is the kind of friend that I don’t have to talk to everyday and no matter how long its been we always seem to pick up right where we left off.

Congrats my wonderful friend!

All the best to you both for a wonderful marriage!

5,000 Thank-yous!

I just hit over 5,000 views on this little production right here!

Wow!

This means so much to me. When I started blogging I had no expectations and no idea what I was really getting myself into. But through a lot of trial and error (and some four letter words), I have managed my way and feel so blessed and loved by all of you readers. I am slowly but surely going to get more of a grasp on the technical side of blogging as I am sure there are things that I can majorly improve on. I am also going to start focusing the content more as I feel like it’s a bit scattered at the moment.

Sometimes that’s just how life goes

To mark such a wonderful day in my blogging world, I have officially joined Twitter! Which means it’s just one more way for you to stay in touch and follow along on what’s happening here at TrenaEverAfter.

If you are on Twitter, follow me @TrenaEverAfter  and I’ll share the love by following you back.

Looking forward to connecting with some more of you! Have a wonderful day wherever you are in the world.
