With Jennifer Valentyne
Happy Canada Day!
Leading up to Canada’s 150th birthday, the Intercontinental Hotels Group asked Canadians to reveal and share their favourite destinations across the country. On Wednesday night, they revealed the top contenders and the contest winner on the patio of the Intercontinental Yorkville.
The party was hosted by Jennifer Valentyne, who you may know from watching Breakfast Television or listening to Q107. You know I can’t say no to an invitation to meet more Canadian talent! Meeting her was lovely and it was interesting to hear about locations I was unfamiliar with. You know I always plan ahead for Labour Day far in advance (hello, birthday weekend!), and now I will consider going to one of these places next.
If you’re American, Happy 4th of July!
If you’re Canadian, then Happy Belated Canada Day! Hit “Like” if you had a relaxing long weekend! Just kidding.
As the girl in the red jeans, a holiday that encourages you to wear red jeans is my kind of holiday. One of the reasons that I like Canada Day more than Valentine’s Day or Christmas is that it’s more inclusive. Year after year, Canadians can all celebrate Canada’s birthday together, with the same amount of enthusiasm, regardless of our relationship status or religion.
My iPhoto collection includes many shots of me wearing red, white and blue. The complementary colours are fun, bold and clean. I’ve worn red, white and blue in Las Vegas, New York, Orlando and Washington, D.C. and I’m confident this pattern will continue on future vacations.
