Dear David,

Hello and happy March. So did you watch the Olympic Closing Ceremonies? Wasn't it FANTASTIC???

Freddie Olympics Closing

That's me just prior to the start of show. The energy inside BC Place Stadium was off the charts. What an incredible experience and what an amazing night for Canada!!!

I'm so proud of all our Canadian athletes, especially Joannie Rochette. And wasn't it great when Alex Bilodeau won Canada's first gold medal on home soil? But the highlight had to be Canada winning GOLD in hockey! WooHoo!!!


Canada Gold Hockey

Normally I'm not a big sports fan (unless you consider shopping a sport LOL) but I was really into the Olympics this time around. Vancouver did an amazing job hosting the world and I am proud to be a Vancouverite and a Canadian. Way to go Canada!!!

Paulo Olympics picAnd look who else got in the Olympic spirit. This cutie is Paulo who is the son of Jurriaan Klink (Sales Manager, Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort). Paulo is wearing his Olympic outfit while cheering on the athletes. His Dad is from The Netherlands and his Mom is from Mexico. I wonder what team he was rooting for? Probably both! :)

Chat with you soon,
