Lots of people! How do boys get their chests to be so silky smooth? Always been a mystery to me. :)

AWESOME, Pride is such a good event!! (I've only ever seen the one in Toronto and it's a crazy fun time.)

Your photos are great - love seeing all the costumes and floats!

So Mr Paparazzi went to the same gym I did when I was living in Victoria. He was always entertaining to watch work out...and I'll just leave it at that ;)

Looks like fun!!! The pride parade in my city is so small compared to that.

Hi Kelsey,
I was trying to comment on your blogroll post, but for some reason I couldn't. I finally figured out how to make a blogroll and added you to mine, was wondering if it would be possible to be added to yours too! Thanks,
