Dare boldly

A blog by Louise Gallagher

Good food. Good times. It’s all about family!

You knows those times when you wonder…  How can the weekend already be over? Where did it go?  Well… This weekend was one of them.

From a jam packed Friday evening at the Grandstand show at the Calgary Stampede, to a tour Saturday morning of Housing First facilities with Tom Mulcair, the leader of Canada’s NDP party, to dinner in the garden for 8 with my cousins from Paris, my step-daughter’s play, my eldest daughter flying in from Vancouver and late night drinks at a favourite restaurant with her and her sister and a couple of friends, to another night at the Stampede, the weekend flew by and it’s already Monday!

Where does time go when you’re having fun?

Can I just say it… whew!

It was fun. It was family. It was life and best of all, was having my daughter come home.

And… I am running late — which is okay. I have committed to giving myself space to be here, or not, this summer.

And in being here, I’m sharing a pictorial view of my weekend — family, laughter, good food, good times, sunshine and love. Who could ask for anything better?

I planted the tiger lillies 3 years ago. This is the first season it’s bloomed.

Good food. Good wine. Good company - and speaking French!

  3. Sounds wonderful, Louise! Isn’t summer special. It’s the time to get together and sit outside around a picnic table with great food and wine and lots of laughs! Very nice.
