we used for our valentines a few years ago.
I was looking at this Valentine wall hanging and remembered what I was doing when I stitched these. (Do you ever do that? Lots of times I remember what movie I was watching.) Well with this one it was the 2002 Olympics. And then it hit me – it’s been 8 years since then! Where has the time gone?
I’m so excited the Olympics are here! I already got teary 5 minutes into the first montage. I’ve been an Olympic junkie since Sarajevo when I was about 9. And then they came to my own back yard (almost literally – the Sale Lake Olympic stadium is within walking distance of where I grew-up.) Only I had a 3-year-old and a nursing baby at the time, so I didn’t do a lot of Olympic spectating other than from my couch like most of the rest of the world. But I’ll tell you this – that Olympic spirit is real. During the time that Olympic flame was lit, there was an amazing feeling in Utah and as soon as that flame went out, it left. (Can anyone else attest to this?) Really awesome. Getting to taste that spirit was a sweet experience. Enjoy it Vancouverites!
