R and I are currently in Vancouver for one week to produce / participate in Got Craft. We head out Monday morning and will be spending two and a half days in Portland before returning to London. Funny thing is that we arrived in Vancouver exactly three months after we made the big move to London, UK in February. How time flies!
After counting down the days, I had some mixed feelings about returning home. I mean, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to see friends and family and stuff myself full of sushi and chinese food. However, I couldn’t help thinking would I want to stay in Vancouver and not return to London? Will the City feel different? The trip has been amazing. We thrifted… we visited babies… we visited friends and family… we ate and then ate some more… we stocked up on crafty supplies… we drove around stanley park and spanish banks… we got haircuts… we drank coffee with cream (UK doesn’t carry half and half, so we have to make our own)… It has been fantastic being able to hop into the car and know exactly where to go and if we need something, exactly which shop would carry what we are looking for. Yet, there is an odd feeling that this isn’t home anymore. Do you know what I mean? This may be partly due to the fact that we are staying with R’s parents, so we aren’t in our own place and half living out of a suitcase. Anyways, there has been lots of talk about people visiting us in London the next few months, so hopefully this will quench my random bouts of homesickness and hopefully we can use them to channel items from Canada over to us!
Happy Friday everyone! For those in Vancouver, we hope to see you at Got Craft this Sunday!
