Well friends, it is ta ta for now as B and I are heading to Arizona until next Wednesday. We plan to explore the Phoenix - Mesa - Scottsdale area and do some shopping, hiking, eating, and - above all - relaxing. I haven't been feeling 100% all week and I'm hoping a dose of Vitamin D will be the cure all I am looking for. When I return I will finally post our Boardwalk Empire-inspired NYE party.
Starting tomorrow, February 11, Vancouver artist Jasna Sokolovic will be spreading up to 200 ceramic red hearts around Granville Island.
The artist describes her project: If you find it, take it, keep it for yourself or give it to someone who will cherish the love.
Each heart will list Jasna's web address on it and the lucky recipients of these pretties are encouraged to contact her and send photos. I love the idea of this love-inspired scavenger hunt; what a fantastic way to spread the love and pay it forward. If you are interested in following along as the photos come in, check out her blog.
Although Valentine's Day is typically a spoil-the-women-holiday, it's also a nice excuse to treat the men in our lives. The following are a few gift ideas that may please your favourite fella (you may even enjoy one or two, yourself).
Presented by Vancouver's DreamGroup, the Bridal Swap is the first of its kind in our fair city. I am a huge fan of this cost-effective and environmentally-sustainable initiative; what a wonderful resource!
Grape Jelly was substituted with my G-ma's homegrown raspberry jam and the sandwich was delicious. I could see this being a fun breakfast treat for little ones... or an easy 'go to' for those afternoons when a regular PB & J just won't cut it.
