Plus, I love that this community–going strong for over a year–always gets so excited and creative each week for each theme. This one is no exception. It’s colourful (yes, there were many jokes about the Canadian spelling of this word) and it’s spring so hoping this will inspire some summer getaways or at least different vantage points. Here’s my take: Continue reading
