This post arrives a little early so that I can let you know about a few things going on in Vancouver this weekend. I feel so lucky to live in Vancouver most of the year, but especially in autumn. Many of the trees here turn every shade of yellow, orange, red, and magenta, but just as many (if not more) stay green year round. We have huge beautiful parks right in the city, and mountains right there when we need them. I know it sounds like I'm bragging, but trust me, all is not perfect in Vancouver. I heard on the radio today that the average price of a home here is over $600,000! That's crazy! And I'm pretty sure the going price for a burger in this city is about $15. So, we pay wild amounts to live in such a beautiful place, but sometimes when I'm out on a fall walk through Stanley Park, or at the beach in January, or at a pumpkin patch in Richmond I realize it might just be worth it...not that I own a house or eat $15 burgers. Do you have any plans to get outside this weekend?
Outdoor fun: The Stanley Park Ghost Train (and haunted barnyard! zonkeys! ghoats!)
