Guess what, guys? Two things… I made it to pride this year!! Oh, and… I got Justin Trudeau on tape!! Which one is more exiting? Definitely the news about me, am I right? 😉 Took me a while to post this, but better late than never!
Anyways, Gen and I made it there just at the right time! At first, I sadly was experiencing the side effects of my “being short-it is”. My goodness, I couldn’t see a thing! So so many people were there! Then, the brilliant wife came up with the solution. A tiny little ramp that happened to be behind us! So, while kneeling on Chandler (that sounds bad… I mean Chandler the walker, of course), there I was, with the view of a lifetime! Out came the trusty cell phone, and thanks to awesome timing, I got Trudeau on tape!! Not the longest video, and I’m definitely not a videographer, but I hope you all will enjoy it!
Pretty exciting, isn’t it? I know what you all must be thinking.. “you’ve gotta be kidding me, this chick doesn’t know what she’s doing with her phone!”. Yes, I am aware that I’m not great with the video editing, but I did what I could 🙂
Now, so that you don’t feel like you completely wasted your time, here are just a few more Zoey valuated type pride thoughts…
Kids – Wow, there were a lot kids there this year. Kids sitting on their parents’ shoulders, kids smiling, laughing, running around and having fun … it was a very family friendly pride! Let’s face it, kids are what it’s all about. If we raise our kids to be loving and accepting, then we’re set 🙂
Vibes – So many times during the day, I said to myself, “wouldn’t it be great if every day was like this?” (Don’t worry, I didn’t actually say it out loud to myself, I haven’t lost it just yet!). Let me explain. I don’t mean we need a huge parade hoopla every day, but all the flags, all the love, all the happiness? Shouldn’t it be like this every day??
To end, let’s see what Ellen has to say about acceptance..
Accept who you are. Unless you’re a serial killer.”
