This morning I was very honoured to attend the swearing-in ceremony of my friend Kelly, who works with me. Today, on Canada Day she became a Canadian citizen. Sixty other new Canadians were sworn in, as well.

In the top photo, she receives congratulations from Mike Savage, my Minister of Parliament for Dartmouth-Cole Harbour. He's also the older brother of my first boyfriend, Philip.

Can't become a Canadian without a Mountie.

In the bottom photo, three of Kelly's work buddies are excited to share her special day.

My swearing-in pictures came up all blurry, which was a huge disappointment. One of the most important days in our lives, and we don't have a single decent picture to remember it by...

Congratulations to all my 'new' fellow Canadians. Happy WW!

Okay, don't know why that line cracked me up, but it just did. :)
Great photos, Julia. Thanks for sharing this important event.
Blessings,

Congrats Kelly and welcome home! :D

And becoming a Canadian isn't complete without a Mountie or two, or three. :D

What a lovely thing to share with a friend!

Yay for Mounties! We got pictures with a photogenic pair of them (but then, is there any other kind?) when my husband was sworn in. And I hope your friend watched the celebrations in Ottawa - they had a very cool thing going on with musicians/dancers/drummers of many different ethnic backgrounds all performing harmoniously together. Fab!
