So I’m at my aunt’s house where my Toronto family has gathered for a little dinner the night before the wedding.
Had a nice shock and surprise as all of a sudden my cousin Mark walks in the room…Mark who has been attending school in Scotland and Paris and who has told us since we got engaged in Oct/05 that he couldn’t attend the wedding. My mom and her sister Mimi were in on it, but Mark’s mom Fran was blown away. She literally stood there, stunned into shock for about 5 minutes before realizing that her son was in the room. It was a great surprise because my uncle passed away last year and even though a wedding is time for celebration it was hard that Mel wasn’t here, that Mark was out of town and it was only her and Jon at home. Great surprise!
Soon I’ll head back to my mom’s to sleep, and at 8:30am the hair and makeup parade begins.
I won’t have time to say it tomorrow so to Yannick on his day, so in advance…
FOR TOMORROW, SEPT 3RD…HAPPY BIRTHDAY YANNICK! (and happy wedding too)
