I found out that I love Canada when I met these beautiful girls from Vancouver! Carrie and Elyse were my roommates at Ricks College 8 years ago and they are so much fun. I wish I had a scanner so I could show you a picture of all of us back in the day. Anyway, when I got Elyse's wedding invitation in the mail, I had to go! Darren was going to come with me (we were dating when I lived with these girls, so he knows and loves them too), but he had to stay for work. So instead I made it a weekend away for myself and had a blast catching up with Carrie. She let me tag along with her and stay overnight at her house. Silly me, I thought I would be able to talk to Elyse more, but not on her wedding day! Isn't she a beautiful bride? We had a good old time on the dance floor together at her reception, though. This was also my first trip to Canada, even though I only live 2 hours from the border. I actually didn't even see Vancouver (the girls live outside the city), but it was much like Seattle in climate and greenery. That's why all the small differences threw me. Like this speed limit sign that I saw right as I crossed the border. Then I heard someone talking about how it was 30 degrees yesterday. They kept reminding me where I was. So funny. But it was such a fun weekend away and a great little blast from the past!
