Happy Valentine's Day

I know it's belated, but as I mentioned I've been north of the border hanging with the canucks and fantasizing about moving to the Pacific Northwest. Valentine's day happened while we were in Vancouver and I think it pretty much passed without even a "Happy Valentine's Day" exchanged between the two of us. (After all, who keeps track of dates when they are on holiday? And who needs valentines when you have a husband who will stay up with you to watch just one more episode of Arrested Development at 1 a.m. when you have to get up at 4 a.m. to catch a flight. That's love right there.)

Even so, on the day in question we did have a lovely little excursion that coincidentally just happened to be Valentine perfect. We walked around beautiful West Vancouver, enjoying the fresh air and fleeting sunshine. I took pictures of vintage signs and pine cones. We popped into a used bookstore where Ash patiently waited while I browsed through cookbooks, craftbooks, novels, and more. And finally we ended up at Bean Around the World for tea and coffee and a blueberry oatmeal bar. Forget Valentine's Day, that's pretty much a perfect day, period.
