a year ago today, i left for aruba. here is the blog post for that travel day! the strongest memory is of the trip from waterloo to the airport – thanks to ice rain and *perfect* temps, it was the most harrowing and nerve-wracking drive down the 401 of my life, no exaggeration. let’s all sit and sigh as we gaze upon the loveliness…
i do not know when i shall return to my favourite tropical paradise. i DO know i love everything about aruba – if you ever get the chance to travel to this tiny island in the caribbean, take it!
…ok, one last shot of heaven!…
since there is no island get-away this weekend, i did the next best thing - i escaped to the movies! what is this? two cinema outings in one week! how FUN is that?!
nicole and i met up last eve at the empire theatres to see the vow.
i was really in the mood for a chic flick and a girls' outing. when you choose a film like "the vow," you know you are not going to see academy award-worthy performances, and that you are going to see a predictably schmoopy plot. and there's nothing wrong with that
well, guess what – this movie hugely surpassed my expectations! she is cute, he is hunky, the story tugs at the heart…it is a good one. i was quite captivated, and was sorry when the movie ended – the time flew! i give “the vow” *** (three stars) and *** 1/2 (three point five) stars if we only consider it for the chic flick genre. if you have not seen “the vow,” go!
vacation down south: would you choose cruise or resort? in january, some running friends went on cruise to run – they had a blast! i am not picky. i will take any holiday that involves sun and HEAT!
