The Olympic plan officially started last night as I was lucky enough to get to see the Opening Ceremonies dress rehearsal. I was blown away. It just made everything so real for me. The Olympics are really happening in the city I live in!! Crazy!!! I have to admit that I got a little emotional last night and I am sure I will again tomorrow night as I watch the Opening Ceremonies live with friends. I am looking forward to hearing what other people think.
I know a lot of people have already seen the torch relay come through their communities and tonight it is my turn! The torch will be coming through Kitsilano just after 7:00pm tonight and I am giddy with excitement! What a special moment to share with my neighbours and friends!
