Happy Valentines Day everyone! One of our favourite days of the year.
It’s a time to slow down with your loved one or romantic partner and really enjoy their company and be in the moment together. Many of the restaurants and eateries throughout the Lonsdale Avenue corridor of North Vancouver have specials for tonight on dinners for 2 with a bottle of wine or similar. Let us know in the comments below about your plans for Valentines Day.
As the sun is now peaking out and blessing us with its presence we hope the weekend is filled with sunshine and positive vibes, as we need a break from the weeks of endless rain. Vitamin D deficiency is a real thing. This time of year the flowers are getting ready to bloom and the trees are getting nice and green going beyond the soaking mess that they have been all winter long.
