Aw, that's very sweet! And don't be too jealous of where I am (Vancouver Island in the photo) because you don't see that I just took off the heavier shirt I was wearing so you could see the bump and the snow we had just melted that morning:) It's been a fairly mild winter here, but a pretty slow spring so far.
Funny, a coworker and I were just talking about what torture a trip to the west coast is this time of year! He had to go for a daytrip for work last week. I'm in Calgary, and going to Victoria or Vancouver this time of year is such torture because when you come back to Calgary you realize how ugly and brown everything is in comparison! And that it will still be weeks and weeks before anything is green!
