My Wedding Day!

Today, at 4:30pm PT in Gibsons, BC, Canada, this kind, sweet, gentle, loving, giving, smart, funny, beautiful, sexy, truly AMAZING woman will make me the happiest man in the world by joining me in marriage.

Those of you who know her know I couldn’t have imagined a better woman, person, wife, lover, partner, and partner in crime. Those of you who don’t, I hope one day you’ll get to meet her. She will make your life better simply by her presence. She brings joy and happiness wherever she goes and the world is a better place because she is in it. And my world is immeasurably better for having known her.

Thank you, Melissa for letting me into your life, for loving me for who I am, faults and all, and for letting me become part of your family. I am honoured to be your husband. I cherish you. I adore you. And I love you to the stars and back.

My 1st Birthday Cake!

Yesterday was Melissa’s son Rory’s 12 birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY RORY!). Melissa asked if we should buy him a cake or make one. I love cooking/baking so I said I’d make him one.

Now, I’ve never made a cake before, let alone a birthday cake. So I scoured my AnyList app and found a recipe I had saved. It’s for “Black Magic Chocolate Cake” and OMG….

As I said on Twitter, “I don’t know much about the relevant law but there quite possibly might be ILLEGAL amounts of chocolate on this birthday cake I made!!”

Now, to be fair, we haven’t yet tasted it but I’m told by a reliable source (Melissa – who was *constantly* licking the bowl) that the icing itself is “to die for…”

UPDATE: OMG OMG OMG I’ve eaten a LOT of chocolate cake in my life but I can now unequivocally say, I JUST MADE THE BEST TASTING CHOCOLATE CAKE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

Just trying to find out simple information…

From a cell phone provider here in Canada – Rogers. Now, to be fair, I have no doubt this online chat session would not have gone much differently with Telus.
