Never have I seen the city of Vancouver so alive! Were you watching?
Words like contagious, infectious and joyful come to mind. Today was quite the day—as our hockey team won the gold medal, the city (and all of Canada, I'm certain) filled with happiness and pride. Never have I used my car horn so much, as when I drove home from work!
There were unforgettable moments of cheer, love, and a new-found level of patriotism. I had tears in my eyes several time over the last 17 eventful days, ending with "I believe"—performed by Montreal teen jazz sensation Nikki Yanofsky. She even landed No.1 on the iTunes Canada playlist—with the official broadcast theme song for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. What a voice! I also shed a tear when seeing Michael J. Fox. I'm such a huge fan of his.
P.S Did you see the adorable and famous (model) Natalia? I was so surprised and thrilled to see her!
