I hope you have had an amazing weekend—whether you spent it with a loved one, friends and/or family. Thanks for stopping by this last week, and for your comments... as I focused on some lovely scents, tastes, fashion and decor, surrounding romance. Valentine's Day causes quite a mix of reactions. I can remember when I was a single girl, I would opt to get together with girl friends and watch a great chick flick or go out for coffee. I felt a little sad, but hopeful that someone, somewhere out there was perfect for me—I just had to wait and be patient. Even now, though, I don't put great emphasis on the day. I am a hopeless romantic at heart, and enjoy expressing my love to my darling each and every day, whether it's just a little note, or a quick kiss. (our 5th Anniversary is nearly here, too!)
Though I'm not particularly athletic, and generally don't follow sports, I am thoroughly enjoying the games and buzz around the city for the Olympics. I had a chance to spend the better part of Friday afternoon downtown—it was amazing! I plan on taking part of today to head back and enjoy some events, (I might even tie on a little red scarf) and hopefully, get some more pictures. It's wonderful to be a part of history in the making—and it's a privilege to host the Olympics. Are you watching?
If you feel so inspired, check out a few fun videos, featuring local Frenchman "Gaston Tartarin", as he explores different events and interacts with tourists and locals alike, throughout downtown Vancouver. Also, here are some wonderful images of the city, published by Architectural Digest, from a little while back...
