Beautiful Day For a Wedding

November 4, 2011

Vancouver was beautiful today. Slept in, had lunch and coffee at a cafe and worked on studio stuff while a wiener dog named Frankie told me his sob story how he's abused and never gets any treats and no one loved him. Frankie's owner just rolled her eyes.

I walked around downtown a bit and noticed all of the women wearing leggings and boots. Alsomwinter jackets and scarves and hats and gloves; it's 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and I'm the Alaskan in a tshirt. No one wears jeans here, it's very strange, but the more I saw the look the more I wanted a pair of leggings and a long sweater and boots for wearing outside of the house.

Then I headed over to the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel's Owner's Suite for pre-wedding photos with my brother and his fiancé.

The suite is huge and beautiful and I would like to live there. The master bathroom is 500sf, approximately the same size as the condo I'm renting while I'm in Vancouver.

There's also this giant gorgeous chandelier that I want to steal for my house. It hung in the corner and was probably a foot square but then the length of to stories. There must be a way for me to make that cheaply for my entryway (which is still missing a light since Steve's tumble off the ladder while painting).

After the photos I quickly changed into something sparkly and we had the wedding ceremony which was 100% Damon and John. I cried. It was beautiful and funny.

I'm so glad I was able to be here for them.

Ready and sparkly for a wedding.

And wear something sparkly.

I was just yesterday assuring @gjcharlet that our structures are built to withstand heavy snow. Welp. https://t.co/UKJRNoQPZC 13 hours ago

17.5″ cumulated snow on the deck. Just finished removing snow from the roof of the shed. Mitzi helped. https://t.co/FuI7pN1OTf 36 hours ago
