Wake up and Smell the Daffodils!

After our last snowfall of the year last Friday, we found ourselves in spring temperatures finally.  What’s a better way to celebrate spring than with flowers!?!

Spring brings such beautiful colours and always feels like it’s the opportunity for a fresh start!  I created this Easter centerpiece for Easter dinner that I am hosting next weekend and I just love it!  With a little handy work from the hubby – it’s just what I was looking for.  Now, I’m not known to have a green thumb – so I sure hope it will make it to Saturday!

 

Planes and Cars and Ferries – Oh my!

Last year, we planned our summer vacation out on the Canadian west coast.  It’s such a beautiful part of the country!  Our first stop – Vancouver City – what a unique, eclectic and picturesque city.  We chose to stay right near Canada Place (right downtown near the seawall).  We had a great view from our hotel where you could see the large Alaskan cruise ships come into Canada Place (Alaskan cruise is on my list!)  I found the hotel kept us centrally located – not far from Granville Island, close to Stanley Park – as well as still being close to the airport, and so much more!

You always need to bring something from home …this was his view

This was my view !


True to British Columbia fashion, we did have at least one rainy day (we went in the middle of July).  It didn’t dampen our travel spirts!  With the mountains as your backdrop and the ocean at your feet – we were collecting Seashells !
