Olympics? In my hometown? OF COURSE I’m going to be there. Or here, really, because we flew out a couple days ago and are already in town soaking up the crazy excited vibe.  Vancouver is positively jumping.

countdown is on

It also happens to be The Husband’s birthday week, so expect to see many more photos of beers and friends and light shows. LOVE this city!

    Lots of pictures! We want lots of pictures! I’ve been to Vancouver once, for a conference, about 10 years ago. It was gorgeous – I’d love to go back someday.
