Baby shower

I went to a baby shower for Lily, a new cousinlet. I must say that the guests did her proud, equipping her for the next few years at least.

Grand gay wedding

Two men in vests ad hats are standing before a table with a sign,

Two spouses-to-be wait their turn to marry each other.


During World Pride Week, 110 same-sex couples celebrated their weddings at Casa Loma, one of Toronto’s more picturesque spots. People came from distant countries to marry. The Grand Pride wedding is the largest of its kind in North America.


During Pride Week, Toronto’s gay village was all dressed up in its most brilliant colours.

A wedding

We travelled to Perth, Ontario, for the wedding of Jake and Jackie.

Men in suits and women in long dresses are lined up at the front of a church, on either side of a bride and groom

Their wedding cake was a marvel, with hundreds of tiny sugar flowers attached to the icing.

We wish Jake, Jackie, and their daughter Madelynn much happiness.
