Before 2012 I had never bothered to watch an Olympic opening ceremony and my attitude to past Olympics has been ambivalent, struggling with the enormous costs but enjoying watching the sporting events and the inspirational stories that inevitably emerge.
But having been so immersed in the last Winter Olympics, the spirit of which was so wonderful and overwhelming.....I am excited to catch some of these games.
I enjoyed trolling through my photos from 2010 and remembering......our opening ceremonies were incredible...it will be hard to top them but I am sure the Brits will give it all they have.
We had some great parties, watched the torch come by our street, put a skier on the roof of our house, took some amazing trips downtown, we sang Oh Canada over and over again and we survived that Gold Medal Hockey game.......
Here are some photos of Winter Olympics 2012

Wishing Team Canada much success in London.
Hoping for a peaceful and inspirational Games for all athletes and spectators.
