Good morning and happy Sunday from beautiful Kelowna!
Today marks the final stretch of our trip — the drive back home to Edmonton. Call me crazy, but I’m kind of going to miss life on the road… Seeing gorgeous sights, experiencing new places – the past 5 days have been a lot of fun. I could probably do without getting caught in bad weather and the extended periods of sitting in a car, buuuuuut hey, life’s about learning to dance in the rain, right? 😉 And speaking of rain, keep your fingers crossed for me so that I don’t get caught in another freak rainstorm while on a highway up in the mountains – once was more than enough for this trip.
But enough rambling… I’ll talk more about my travels later this week because today is all about sharing the [link] love.
