The Wedding Pavilion

Our anniversary was this week - seven years married. 'Who knew all the things that would happen in seven years,' Jim said, 'babies, home ownership, new deck, wow.'

When we got married, our wedding happened to be on the same weekend as Folkfest, an annual intercultural festival here in Saskatoon. Each venue for Folkfest is called a pavilion, as in the Chinese Pavilion or the Scottish Pavilion. We liked to joke that day that ours was the Wedding Pavilion. Eat, drink, dance, experience Canadian wedding culture.

A silly conceit, but I always think of it on our anniversary.

Wel, happy anniversary to you both!

I may be biased but I think you picked a fine time of year for it.

Hmmm....the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival *is* going on this weekend, but probably we will be too busy to attend that. (Ditto the Michigan Mensa Annual Picnic and the NPR Member Appreciation Picnic.)

I would give ANYTHING to be a fly on the wall at the Michigan Mensa Annual Picnic.

Have a great time at your wedding!
