Dear Vancouver Videoby
I was just sent a link to this “Dear Vancouver” video on YouTube and I have to say, it’s pretty neat.
One night after dinner a few months ago, John and I went for a walk in the West End. Even though I had traveled the same path hundreds of times before, I took out my phone and snapped photos along the way. I captioned each “Dear Vancouver, I love you” and uploaded them to Flickr, pinging Twitter along the way.
Sometimes it’s nice to just stop, take a look around, and appreciate where we live. It is beautiful, it is miserable, it is charming, it’s fabulous, and it’s heartbreaking. It’s not perfect by any means, but it is home. I chose to live here, as did my American husband.
The video above is yet another reason I love my city. It’s full of creative people and every once and a while someone decides to spread that word that Vancouver isn’t all that bad.

I’m actually doing the same thing!
My husband and I moved to Vancouver from Toronto almost 4 years ago now, as I had gotten a job designing for the Olympics and needed to start right away. For as long as we’ve lived here, I was so busy with work that Vancouver was really just in the background for me. I feel like I’m just FINALLY able to really see it for all of its beauty, surprises and flaws. I started my own Flickr album called “Vancouver, the eclectic. Vancouver, the beautiful.” to document my own traipsing through this remarkable place! And having a lot of fun doing it too! Happy to call this city “home”.
She sure is beautiful. I wish I could live in Vancouver.
