We’ve had a very grey, very rainy (record-breaking rainy!) spring so far here in Vancouver, and it’s seriously getting people down. Me included.

So when the sun came out this morning, I made the very most of it. I took the longer route home through the woods after walking my kid to school. I ran an errand at Granville Island. I stopped at the beach on my way home.

The cherry blossoms started blooming over a week ago, and I was so grateful for this first glimpse of them against a clear blue sky.

Oh man, I so needed this sunny day.
