I Like Fancy Pumpkins!

I like pumpkins. Especially the fancy kind!

When I was younger, I would try to hog a homemade, pumpkin pie all to myself at Thanksgiving. Since then, my love for pumpkin has overflowed into coffee, whiskey, cupcakes, and beer flavours. 37 more words

Scottish Country Wedding


A barn, bagpipes, and Six Nations of the Grand River. What do they all have in common? A wedding of course!

On Saturday, I had a great time piping for a country-themed, hipster-style, subtly Scottish wedding at the “The Barn” in Oshweken, a venue that makes you feel like you’re in a barn, minus the flies and “fresh country air” (if you know what I mean). 161 more words

Homecoming at the University of Western Ontario

This past Saturday, I had a great time piping for Homecoming at the University of Western Ontario – #westernhoco as it’s affectionately called.

My duty for the day was to lead the crowd, who had just finished watching country singer Gord Bamford perform, through campus to the TD Football Stadium so they could watch the Western Mustangs take on the Toronto Varsity Blues. 156 more words
