In honor of my friends who already have their houses decorated with trees in place, and my mother who also loves the season, I’m beginning a segment: Christmas in Vancouver.

John and I are headed to the Island for a quick trip with my sister’s family.

Three more work days until the long weekend and ten more days until I’m in Iowa – FANtastic. Here’s a mid-week update from the good folks at – meaning… me.
