After 3 weeks in our family’s “hometown” of Vernon, we have again landed in Cowichan Bay, where we have resided almost 2 months. What a flowery trip! As my daughter says, “we are traveling people”! Now that I am home I can hardly believe we did 3 weeks on the road with our 3 children, but how wonderful it was… and we are grateful to have left the Okanagan Valley so well-hugged, and also to have lovely flowers from amazing friends to immediately freshen our kitchen!
As I left Cowichan Bay 3 weeks ago, I felt I might just miss this place. And then leaving Vernon this week I felt, again,… I might just become an Island girl yet. When I look at myself skipping, waving to the captain, and enjoying the blowing wind on the ferry…
It seems it just might be so… coastal life does look good for all of us Sharpes. Our trip was a reminder of the deep friendships we have. We pray those will last a lifetime! It also rekindled our love of dance!
Friends, you have energized me over these three weeks and I aim to infuse my life here will all the love, warmth, inspiration, and depth you have surrounded me with on this flowery holiday! Tonight, I am glad to be home, ripe strawberries, greens ready to be munched, and all!
