Today in #Zagreb 400k people gathered across the city to welcome home the 2nd place #WorldCup Croatian team. I was in Zagreb in 1998 when our team came in 3rd and got to come back 20 years later. This time I am a wife and mother and my children got to experience the celebration and pride. A little country of 4.2 million people came together but so did the children of the diaspora. We came from Canada 🇨🇦, the USA 🇺🇸, Germany 🇩🇪, Australia 🇦🇺, Austria 🇦🇹, France 🇫🇷 and Switzerland 🇨🇭 to name a few. We celebrated, sang, danced shared a drink 🥃 or two and the atmosphere was electric. While some news programs showed a lot of tears they didn’t last too long. This little country won a lot of hearts ♥️ and showed fairytales do come true. #vatreni #volimhrvatsku #beproud #showyourcolours #fairytalesdocometrue #croatia #hrvatska #worldcupfinals #soccer #football
When you book a trip to #Croatia 🇭🇷 in 24 hours to watch the #WorldCupFinal in #Zagreb with family from Windsor 🇨🇦, Virginia 🇺🇸, Germany 🇩🇪 and your friend from Switzerland 🇨🇭. It was an epic night and people celebrated as if Croatia won. I would be lying if I said there wasn’t some tears but that didn’t stop us.
Yesterday was an historic day in Croatian football! The little country of #Croatia 🇭🇷 with 4.2 mil people is going to face France on Sunday. Win or lose I am so proud of the team. My husband decided the entire family needed to be in Zagreb for the game so I am currently at the airport having packed up (which of course involved laundry and a trip to @shoppersdrugmartofficial and the mall for a few things) for six in less the 24 hours for this last minute holiday. My feed will be full of football and beach. #sorrynotsorry. This photo was taken after Russia 🇷🇺 game. My amazing friend @bubamare0707 moved the time of her wedding ceremony so everyone could watch the game and that made her wedding one heck of a party!! I was the maid of honour and hubs the best man! Our hair and makeup stayed fresh all day because of @mybeautycrewto even if we are cheering for 2 different sides on Sunday. #volimhrvatsku #vatreni #hrvatska #worldcup #canada
If you missed my segment on @cityline this morning it was all about updating your summer wardrobe. I’ve been getting a lot of requests about the dress I wore on air. If you are in Croatia 🇭🇷 you can pick one up @maibymajda . Now I am off to watch the #worldcup match and age 60 years. #volimhrvatsku #vatreni
What a week - had a nasty 😷 summer cold, taped a great segment for Cityline, maid of honour for my dear friend Mary and Croatia 🇭🇷 is off to the semifinals of the World Cup 🌍! I am feeling better and ready to organize my basement. It’s back to reality and mom life but before I get there wanted to show off an outfit that’s all about colour and patter! http://liketk.it/2wsRx #liketkit @liketoknow.it
Proud mom here. She changed our lives (almost 14 years ago) when she came into the world 13 days late. She has her own schedule and rushes for no one. Proud of my math and science loving daughter who reads as voraciously as I do and has a kindness I know others will appreciate. I am nervous for high school but I know she’s got this.
I googled shoe 👠 quotes for my caption today and there were so many I decided to create an album of my favourite quotes. Did I miss any? Which is your favourite quote or shoe emoji? Happy Shoesday!
I am sharing this old post on how important angles are when taking pictures because someone asked me to tag them but I cannot find the message or comment so am doing this instead. Remember ladies Ching down and our. It will feel awkward but the photo is better!! No one looks good with the chin up and I have ruined so many old photos with my chin up. A few other pointers - when sitting at a table don’t do the lean in. Get everyone to shift over nicely seated and sit close together. I DO NOT lean in to get in a seated photo anymore. DO NOT have anyone take a photo of you from bottom up (they are crouched under your) @jnreynolds taught me that. Good lighting is a must. The Meghan Markle photo I posted shows that. Finally, if you are taking a group photo where everyone is standing and you are at the end don’t turn in too much, angle out so we can see how great you look. Any other tips? Share so we can all look great in photos.
Who else is waking up at 3/4 am and up an hour or 2? I don’t have babies 👶 anymore why is this happening?
It was a great weekend. Looking forward to a crazy busy week. Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day.
