The Time Has Come

31117_385488216710_7738495_nIn March of 2009 I started with an intention. I set out to establish a local online resource that featured and uncovered exciting local businesses and events in my community. I met some amazing local women with the same desire and together we worked so hard. I am tremendously proud of what this website and its contributors have accomplished over the past few years. In less than two years we had a readership of 30,000 each month – that is not easy to do and is something to be excited about! The experiences we enjoyed through this blog, the people we’ve met… amazing. I feel honoured and blessed for everything that has come from FVP.

This isn’t the end of Fraser Valley Pulse. It will remain online as a resource and may be updated from time to time. However, the time has come to officially bow out and to relieve myself of any expectations. I am a Mum to a busy toddler and my time online is limited nowadays. Rather than live with one foot halfway in, I’m going to lay my dear blog here to rest peacefully :)

I am spending some time with my new blog adventure called I Love That – You will find a few of the same topics covered here on FVP, but an entirely different format. Please stop by sometime.

See you around, dearest readers. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for reading.

Vancouver Christmas Market

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

It’s been a few years since my husband and I first attended the Vancouver Christmas Market. I was thrilled to see how it has grown! On now until December 24th, the market is located outdoors at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza.


This traditional German-style market is a great place to visit with your family this holiday season. There is live entertainment and fantastic traditional German gifts and products. The carousel kept my little guy happy, along with face painting, gingerbread cookie decorating; candle decorating was available, too.




If you’re hungry, be sure to check out the wood fire oven baked pizzas and all of the other tasty food vendors. The German Bratwurst was my favourite. Only at a traditional German market could I sneak that one into my diet, but every bite was worth the calories :) We also enjoyed fresh fruit kebabs (you CAN cover in chocolate, if you wish) and, of course, some traditional Glühwein.



Disclosure: Our tickets, meals and carousel rides were complimentary. All thoughts are my own.
