My brother and sister-in-law Jennifer came out to the West Coast for a sort of job interview and during their visit, carved out the better part of a day to meet up with us in West Vancouver. We had not seen each other in almost two years and had a wonderful day celebrating an early Christmas, window shopping, catching up and laughing much together. Jen and I share a love of shoes, home decor and things that sparkle and had great fun dreaming (and squeaking) over many things that caught our eye(s). I was feeling pretty burned out from this semester at school and our day together energized me for the holidays. Despite the rain, we had such a great time together.
