My sister and I spent last weekend in the Okanagan. It was beautiful! The weather was just perfect. Not too hot or cold. The orchards were in blossom, there were no crowds, lots of fantastic wine, great little shops, many thrift stores and MULTIPLE flea markets! Ok. Died and gone to heaven.
Needless to say, I did a bit of shopping. When I'm in that hunting and gathering mode, I always need to check in with myself. After all, I don't have a store to buy for anymore. My Dad's word of advice, "Don't buy anything that's not necessary." Gee. Thanks Dad.
Seeing the vineyards really reminded me of Provence. For a moment, I was transported.
