Kate and I married at 11 AM on July 1, 2004 at the Apricot Cat and Black Dog Bed & Breakfast in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Appropriately, we were married on Canada Day.

Pat Mitten, the marriage commissionaire (equivalent to a justice of the peace in the U.S.) who married us, did so in a ceremony in the backyard of the B&B. And instead of fretting about what shoes to wear, we decided to free the feet!

From Pam and Kate Marry

While our marriage has been recognized by New York for some time, it would be great to renew our vows  there with family and friends present.

I love you honey; thanks for putting up with the late-night tapping on the keyboard, the multiple health crises, and all the woes of putting up with an accidental activist. xo
