July 31st – 22 Years of Magic

Today, Dan and I celebrate twenty-two years of wedded bliss๐Ÿ’ž. In some ways it was lifetimes ago (a lot of lives have come and gone). In other ways it seems like last year.

I would have been good with a quick trip to city Hall, but Dan wanted a real wedding so I let him take charge. He made all of the arrangements for the ceremony, the reception, and the honeymoon. Jennifer made my dress and designed our wedding invitations. All of my siblings except my sister Denise were able to make it. Dan’s sister, Joan came from Costa Rica and was in the wedding party. The hall was filled with family and friends. Our honeymoon was a week of wilderness camping. All in all, it was a memorable, magical time in our lives.

The night before (checking out the bar with sister Lorraine) – I mean setting up the hall for the wedding reception.
Escorted by Jack Nicolle. I worked for Jack for twenty years. Since my Dad was already gone, Jack graciously stepped in.
The ceremony with Minister Bob
The wedding party
Family – Mark, Dan, Jen, Me, Dan, my Mom, and Dan’s Dad
Cutting the cake
Another boss, Russ Barr. I was so stressed walking up to the ceremony – until I saw Russ. He had such a genuine grin on his face that I just snapped out of it. I turned and saw Dan and the rest of our day was magical.
Our honeymoon suite. Looks a bit rugged but we were on the shore of Diefenbaker Lake which was gorgeous. Dan had everything so organized in our sleeping and eating tents. It was a perfect week of resting and relaxation.

Dan is working this weekend but we have a lovely supper of steak and shrimp planned for when he gets home.

I hope everyone is enjoying a great weekend! Take care and see you tomorrow! ๐Ÿ’ž
