Happy Family Day & Happy Presiden'ts Day & Happy Blue Monday too!

Today is the 2nd year we've had Family Day in Ontario. It took many years before this holiday was finally passed. It is a day for spending with family and a holiday day off between New Year's and Easter to do so. It is a provincial holiday so the banks, malls and many other areas are closed. I wish everyone to celebrate a good one no matter which one you are celebrating. There all kinds of festivities and amusement areas open to make it a fun day.

Today is also Blue Monday hosted by Sally from SmilingSally. I'm late. Marc had President's Day off and was here until today and I didn't have my post ready earlier. Be sure to visit Sally to see all the other BLUE participants and be sure to leave a comment so they know you've been!

On Valentine's Day we went to my goddaughter's wedding. What a lovely wedding it was. It was such a beautiful wedding and you could feel the know that kind of day? For BLUE Monday I am showing you my BLUE velvet skirt and BLUE blouse. Marc was wearing a BLUE striped shirt and a BLUE tie and my son Richard was wearing a BLUE tie also. My other son Geoff on the left was just as handsome even though his tie wasn't blue.
This is my guys with their ladies too.

This is Marc and I with the happy bride and groom.

They joked that Jason (the groom) will never have an excuse to forget his anniversary. Valentine's Day is really a romantic day for a wedding. The cake was beautiful too.

whoops...even when the bride wears some of the cake....

I hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day too...and today a Happy Blue Monday, Family Day or President's Day.... Judi xoxo

You're never too late for Blue Monday as long as it's still Monday! This looks like a nice wedding, and the groom saves on anniversary/Valentine's Day presents.

Hi Judi,I really liked the decorating at the wedding,thought the tables looked very pretty. What really caught my eye was you mentioning the holiday,family day.This is Saskatchewan's 2nd year of celebrating it as well.Sadly,I work in retail and all a holiday means to me is I will get paid more money and I will work less hours...but,still I had to work and that isn't right.Obviously there are some jobs that must carry on no matter what the day but a grocery store? I wish everyone would stay out of these stores on holidays it would help to send a message to employers to have a heart and close shop on a holiday

Hi Judi,

Those are great pictures! You are right he can't ever forget an anniversary when it is Valentine's day.

I didn't even realize that I had gone to your other blog for this post. I need to change it in my favorites. You can pre-schedule your posts in blogspot. I do it each post. I am an early to bed person and I always set mine up to post between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. If you need instructions just let me is simple.
