For our anniversary we left this pet behind.

Fueled up and hit the road.

Vancouver, how we love you so…

With no lagging child we walked and walked and walked, drank beer and ate.  All in equal proportions of course.

After almost being decapitated by rogue bus wire at 1am on Granville Bridge we decided to call the night complete and recharged for day two.

Highlights included,

A Sounders win, with the bold move of my husband visibly supporting his team in the Whitecaps Suite.

People watching.  My favorite being the three young  Saudi boys in traditional arab garb cruising Robson Street again and again in rented white convertible mustang blasting Arabic pop tunes and waving Saudi flag.  Does Rock the Casbah come to mind?  Man were they having the time of their lives.

Overheard highlight, “We go in, be social, have some fun and break some hearts.”  I would have wanted to hang out with that girl when I was young.

Ride home included off the beaten track roads, brewery and double rainbows.

All in celebration of still digging one another.

We look so cute and how come nobody moved all that crap behind us for photos?

We married in the Northwest on a rainy day in a cozy lodge on the Sound surrounded by friends and family.  Love happens in strange ways, like marrying your old boyfriend’s roommate for example.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Today I feel like turning on the heat and sewing.  I did get a little of that in too on the drive.  I’ll show you the whole quilt on a less rainy photo day.
