Below is a video of the great David Myles. If you want to smile all you have to do is listen to this song. Well it works for me every time. Saturday night there was a big going away party for Sam and Peter and many people came from far away to see them off . It was awesome to catch up with so many old friends! David Myles flew in from Halifax to perform and it was amazing to see him live, a first for me. So to celebrate Canada Day why not buy a David Myles album or song? That's what I'm going to do. I suggest "Things Have Changed". Have a great Canada Day all (and a good moving day for all you Montrealers).

This is a kid who lives across the street from me. He's always out riding around on his "Big Wheel". Well a few weeks ago I noticed that he was dressed in a suit and thought what an interesting photo that would make. I figured he must have just have come home from some formal event and went straight to playing. So I crossed the street with my camera, chatted with the grandfather, and found out that in fact he had come home from school and decided to dress up like Mr. Bean for the rest of the day! What a character. This week I saw him in full Spidey get-up, again on the Big Wheel, but by the time I had gone inside and gotten my camera he was gone.

Some recent kitchen counter photos.

While in NYC I tried to see as many galleries as I could in the Chelsea district. Really I didn't do it justice but I did come away with 2 absolute favourites:
"Minidoka on my Mind" paintings by Roger Shimomura at Flomenhaft Gallery, 547 West 27th street, suite 308
"RFK Funeral Train - Rediscovered" photos by Paul Fusco at Danziger Projects, 521 West 26th street

In other news good friends Peter Loewen and Sam Millar are soon leaving on their bike (dirt bike) trip from Cairo to Cape Town. This Saturday they are going to have a good bye party that will also be a fund-raiser for Spread the Net. The event will be at Bar GP (750 Gilford) from 9pm on. To read about their trips preparation and plans check out their blog:

Here are the last of the Habs fans series from this past playoff season.

So I'm back from a great honeymoon road trip! Went all the way down to Florida and back with lots of stops along the way in 16 days. Some highlights were: Savannah ( I really want to go back there); a small southern diner where we had real mac 'n cheese, fried chicken, and pole beans; the fresh water springs in interior Florida; watching huge sturgeon jumping clear out of the water in a Florida river one morning; hiking in Shenandoah National Park and coming face to face with a deer; bringing our bikes! (we biked in Jekyll Island, NYC, Virginia beach, Charleston, etc.); Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida which has 12 buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright; walking through the gallery district in Chelsea (it's hard to believe that there are so many galleries in one place); and so much more. Photos will be forthcoming.

Well that's the end of another hockey season. I was cheering for the Penguins so I was definitely disappointed by last night's results. Above are some more Habs fans just outside The Bell Centre during this year's playoffs.

Well I am off again. Chris and I are going on a honeymoon roadtrip and will be gone till the 22nd. So have a good 2 weeks everyone!

Chris and I this past Saturday.

I am a married woman now!!! For all the stress leading up to it, the weekend completely paid off. I know it sounds corny but it really was the best day I ever had. The ceremony was so beautiful and to be sharing it all with every person we care about was really something. We couldn't have been happier. Thank you so much to everyone for sharing that with us!

Many may be wondering what will happen to the "Why am I Marrying him?" series now. Well perhaps it will come to an end, or at least change in perspective, we shall see. I have been photographing Chris a lot in the past few weeks in order to get as many non married photos in there. Some of them turned out really well but I'm going to have to hold them back for now. I want to have some surprises for the fall when I will be exhibiting the series. I'm not much good at keeping things to myself like that, especially for so long but I'll do my best. Maybe from now on it's "Why I married him" ?!
