My Annual Staniversary - Stan Rogers Folk Festival - Canso, Nova Scotia, Canada

My Annual Staniversary

Every July we celebrate our ‘Stanniversary’. I’ve been going to Stanfest with a loyal group of Stan ‘lifers’ from PEI since 1999 – in 2004, we happened to camp beside a group of guys from Antigonish in the Acoustic Campground. Oddly enough in 2005, there they were, camped beside us again. By 2006, I figured we knew them well enough to suggest that they help us set up our camp as we had arrived late and they were all sitting back relaxing. One of those guys came over to help and by the end of the weekend we decided to take a chance and see each other somewhere outside of Canso… I never imagined I’d meet the love of my life wearing a winter coat in July with full rain gear but the rest as they say is history. Forty five years was the first song we danced to at our wedding. 😉 This year we’ll celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary and have two great kids. Rory actually made his first appearance at Stanfest when he was a mere 5 weeks old (see pic above)!
