On Thursday night when we got home, there were storm clouds a brewin'. The clouds led to rain and high winds on Thursday night and a big ol' storm that battered the lower mainland throughout the day on Friday. And THIS marked the perfect start to a much needed weekend of rest. Because, who needs a better excuse to hunker down on a holiday weekend than the promise of a perfect storm? I can tell you that it just took one look at the storm clouds rolling in to convince Mister Man and I that we were better on this side of the rattling windows and doors.... And then, the storm subsided in time for us to slip out into the night for a lovely dinner with friends (photos and text coming later). Golly, I love this weekend. It's been a long time coming, but well worth waiting for.
