So Many Moments!



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 dayas 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 playlistwith 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!

  1. of course you love Michael J. Fox...when I met him at work many years ago (you were only 2), we talked and then he autographed a picture for you saying "when she grows up she'll say 'Michael who?'" he was so humble and had no idea how famous or loved he'd be for many years to come...

    I agree, I am so proud of our Canadian teams and athletes. From Alexandre, who is inspired by his brother (a story so close to your heart :) to Joannie Bassette who lost her mother, Therese only days before she competed.

    Vancouver will never be the same, and I can say I am so proud to be Canadian...Go Canada Go...and btw, the closing ceremonies owned the opening ceremonies ;)

  5. Hi Sarah
    i just finished watching the Closing Ceremony... what fun you guys must of had.. I didn't see as much of the games as I would have liked.. but always seemed to be full of high spirits, friendship and humour!.. I remember this feeling of patriotism when the Olympic Games were here.. 2000.... We don't often flaunt our patriotism here but in these moments you feel it's strength.. sounds like you had this same experience...

    Congratulations on the Ice Hockey win.. and enjoy your moment! .. xx Julie
