It was with great pleasure, and excitement, that I travelled to Boston, after my short and superb stay in Marrakech. I was looking forward to meeting up with family and friends at the wedding of my young cousin Ann-Marie, after having spent eight months on the road travelling. It was an added bonus to get to meet up with my sister Eileen and her daughter Madison, who were in Boston specially for Ann-Marie's wedding. Eileen, Madi and I had a night in a hotel to ourselves before we joined the excitement of the wedding festivities. And what a festive, happy time it was!

Ann-Marie's wedding marked the last of my uncle Gerry's childrens' marriages. Her sister Colleen and brother Michael's weddings before were wonderful, as was Ann-Marie's. But this one was somewhat bittersweet because it marked the end of the large "conventions" to Boston for Gerry and Maureen's kids' weddings! There have been great gatherings generating happy memories at 129 Parker Road, home of Maureen and Gerry. Another wedding might send them all over the edge! So perhaps they're happy to have staged a final, and stupendous, soiree! Ann-Marie's wedding was different to Michael's and Michael's was different to Colleen's, and they were all special to me. Colleen, Michael and Ann-Marie were born when I was a teenager. I babysat all of them and loved watching them grow. Over the years I have been truly impressed with their grown-up selves!

Another thing that has impressed me about my young cousins' weddings is their partners' families. Jake, Katie and Mike all have fab families.. which extends the Flaherty clan in an exponential and excellent way!
