Leavin' on a Jet Plane ~

David and I are off to gorgeous west-coast Victoria tomorrow for a 4-day long weekend.

What a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday weekend! We are expecting plenty of rain (my favorite thing after chocolate), green grass and flowers, and otherwise stormy oceanside weather. I'm looking forward to wandering and walking with David, visiting with my best friend Margaret and my aunt Sharon, who both live there, and basically feeling free and happy for 4 whole days!

We're also hoping to buy some table linens for the new house. Calgary, despite the oil and housing boom, doesn't have much in the way of unique home decor boutiques. Okay, there are some but I've exhausted them all. And Victoria has some little gems. Plus, thanks to its English colonial roots and wealthy retirees, we expect there to be plenty of stuffy linen stores!
I just can't wait to walk in the rain and admire the greenery and breathe the cool ocean air...


  1. Have an amazing time. I love this city, which so does not feel like a city. My favorite is a wonderful little smoke shop that makes me think of Art (Grampy) and remember how much I loved the smell of his pipe. Oh the food and the wine!

    Enjoy. God how I love the west coast air.

  2. Have a wonderful time. You love the rain? Makes my head scream!

  3. Happy birthday! I hope you have a lovely trip. :)
