We all went up to Grammy and Grandpa's for Christmas break. Usually these visits afford us lots of family time and have been very event oriented (weddings and babies mostly). This visit Paul and were determined to have a date-- a real life, honest-to-goodness date. Naturally, we were not sure about so much time alone so we headed into Vancouver to see Claire and Nathan (we need to ease into this sort of thing with good company).
It was beautiful and cold and I was reminded of why I love that city so much and how thankful I am to have good people to visit there. We walked down to Granville Island and around the bay to where we could see the open water. I decided that while I don't love the water, I could be a boat person. Paul reminded me that you have to have money to be a boat person. I rethought.
We walked and walked, then went back to their house and killed big salads and two and half pizzas (which we did not help with at all). I laughed a good amount and only had one teeny, tiny pang of worry about the boys. So what if I had a few tears-- I am not a robot. They fed us, wooed us with the Wii and pretty books, and sent us on our way full of good feelings. It was the best dang date I've been on in years. Thanks, you two.
The calendar is gorgeous. Uh, this card is flippin' rad. I love the letterpress mats a whole lot. And wait! There's a club-- this print by Roxy Marj is really wonderful. Anyway, they are having a very good sale at this very moment, so don't dilly-dally if you like what you see.
