Goodbye on Christmas Eve
Wow-y wow wow wow. My mom, my sis Ashley + I packed in so many fun activities while they were visiting me in Vancouver!
Ash + mom were visiting Jeff + I for a mere short 8 days. But boy howdy, we packed it in!!!! I’ll give a brief preview of the past 5 days + elaborate on the highlights in later posts!
Lookit sweet Megumi sitting at the foot of Ashley’s chair – I’m so happy that we are reunited + that my mom + sis endured the stress of bringing her successfully across the border! So worth it!!!!!!!
Meanwhile, during the day we waited in the perpetual long line for Santouka Ramen on Robson…..
Enjoyed a unique, quaint French cafe experience at Le Marche St. George….
Majorly freaked out at the Lululemon Factory Outlet……there’s me teeny mum in the dressing room inquiring, “How does this look???”.
My Southern California family + my Vancouver family together enjoying food, drink + good conversation! The first reunion since the wedding!!!
Methinks Jeff + I need to invest in some more lighting in the living/dining room. Very dim!!!!
Yesterday was a subway trek to historic Gastown!
This afternoon we dropped mom + Ashley off at the Vancouver airport. My stoic Japanese mom was crying rare tears when we parted. I miss my California family so much already!!!! In the short time span that we had, we went on so many adventures + covered so much ground in Vancouver!!! I’ll think on the postitive side + make plans for when my mom, sister AND dad will all be here to visit me in the springtime when Vancouver will be in it’s full height of natural beauty!!! I’m so elated that they spontaneously made the trip up north to visit Jeff + I!!!! It was one of the best Christmas gifts I could have ever received!!!!!
I hope y’all are enjoying the most coziest + warm Christmas Eve with friends, family + loved ones as I write!!!!!! Happy Holidays!!!!
