Greetings from Vancouver

Greetings from Vancouver!!!!

img_1879

It’s been a wild month. From the long LDW in Vermont with my friends, to a girls trip to Lake Placid, a birthday celebration in the vineyards in the North Fork, and now here across the continent in Vancouver for SeaWheeze. This month has been non stop and I am so grateful for each and every opportunity (however exhausting it is at times).

I’m going to be posting as much as I can over the weekend to share the experience with everyone – while also staying present in the moment. I figured I would kick off the weekend by sharing some pictures from my run around the sea wall yesterday to some first observations since taking off from LGA.

My First Impressions of Vancouver

1.Everyone seems really happy. No one is yelling at their cellphones, taming their crazy child, or beeping their horn because the light turned green .1 seconds ago.

2. Speaking of cellphones – I have seen almost zero people walking while looking at their phones – which is currently the #1 hazard in NYC. I wonder if this will change once all the runners arrive!

3. This weather is fall – and no one is prepared. I went for a run yesterday in a tank and capris and stopped by lululemon/Sephora at the end. Multiple people both in the stores and on the streets were concerned by my lack of clothing and shared their concerns with me. I went out at night in a sweatshirt and everyone had scarves and hats. Now don’t get me wrong – I am underprepared thanks to NYC being 95* the past couple months – but I don’t think it’s wintertime either.

4. The exchange rate is making me want buy all of the lululemon items – but I’m trying to resist due to that big W word happening next July. Whenever I get the urge – I’ll open my wedding spreadsheet as a reminder.

5. These people have it all. Mountains, beaches, city lights – watch out Al – I may have fallen in love πŸ™‚

Keep an eye out for more to come!
