The Month of Love

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

For the last couple of days, my favorite music station has been playing some of the greatest love songs, and I have to admit, many of them are taking me way back to places and people that have touched my heart in more ways than one.  Some songs find me turning up the dial, singing at the top of my lungs, while others render me speechless and I’m lost in a few moments of time.   At first I wondered if the station had a change in programming, and then it dawned on me – it’s February – the month of romance and love!  Ah, Celine and “The Power of Love” – you get me every time.

Flower Haute Couture

Categories: Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services

Christmas cheer is in my blood.  As a matter of fact, I often feel that I must be a distant relative of Mrs. Klaus.  Around this time of year, my dreams are full of red and white.  My hair is dusted with so much gold glitter that I leave a trail of sparkling specs wherever I go.  You will most likely find me running around the greenhouse with a bright sparkle stuck to the end of my nose, a box of bright metallic cellophane sheets tucked under one arm and curly ting ting bunches under the other.  During the months of November and December my calling in life is to spread the joy of the season from house to house, one beautiful poinsettia at a time!

Cross it off your List

Category: Shopping & Services

It’s easy to shop locally in Langley this holiday season with so many unique shopping mecca’s located within the community. Between Willowbrook Shopping Centre, which is full to the brim with 150 shops and services to meet your every holiday gift need, to the array of popular big box stores that are sure to contain items on your wish lists.  The quaint communities of Fort Langley and Aldergrove may be the perfect places to find a unique, personal, and hand-crafted gift for that special someone who has everything.  Many of our local farms also offer a unique shopping experience as well as holding special holiday markets full of local vendors you won’t see anywhere else!

Fall Markets & Fairs

Categories: Agritourism, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

Many of us get through the chilly fall season by looking forward to the upcoming holidays, but what is it that gets you into the spirit? For me it’s attending a local market or holiday craft fair. If you think that farmer’s markets are a seasonal event, think again. Many of Langley’s well known markets are re-opening for the holiday season and are bringing you fresh local products all winter long. So this year remember to shop local, visit a hand-made craft fair for those special holiday gifts you’re looking for, and purchase your produce, soups and yummy baked goods to warm your insides at one of the below local markets taking place throughout the community.

Several significant streets make up the vibrancy of Langley’s downtown core, highlighted by both the Fraser Highway and Douglas Crescent. The City of Langley, originally known as “Innes Corners”, and later called “Langley Prairie” was incorporated as a separate municipality on March 15, 1955. Today, it is an ideal place to spend time when visiting the region. Below is a list of 10 cool things that you can do in downtown Langley.

Endless Farm Fresh Choices

June is here, the sun in shining (okay well it was), markets are open, and our local berries are ripe for the picking! This means that Langley’s Circle Farm Tour is in full swing! All stops on the 2013 tour are now open for business which means that you can finally head out to the berry farms and pick that juicy ripe fruit directly from the fields. Strawberries have arrived, and it’s only time before the rest of our favourite local berries can be picked up, farm fresh.

A Girls Getaway

Categories: Accommodations, Shopping & Services, Uncategorised

There’s nothing quite like girls’ night out.

These days, women have a lot on their plates. That’s why it’s so important to take some time for ourselves to spend with the ladies in our lives – girls’ night.  I recently had the opportunity to head over to  the Cascades Casino Resort for some quality bonding time with my closest girlfriends.  Many don’t know it but they offer many wonderful packages for visitors to take advantage of, including their Girls’ Night Out package.

Open for the Season: Farmer’s Markets

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”…that is the song that has been going around in my head lately.  Yes, I realize it is not Christmas or back to school but it IS one week until the opening day of the Langley Community Farmers Market and that is a little like Christmas to me!  If you have not had a chance to visit a Farmer’s Market in previous years, you are absolutely missing out!  Every Wednesday from 2:00 – 6:00pm in the Courtyard of Kwantlen Polytechnic University, you will find more than 30 vendors that “Make it, Bake it or Grow it”.  Or spend your Saturday’s strolling through the garden of the Bedford House Restaurant in Fort Langley while browsing the tents of the Fort Langley Village Farmers’ Market, which takes place from 10am – 3pm and includes another great array of market vendors.  The newest market to the area is Milner Village Market located at the Milner Village Garden Centre also on Saturday’s starting June 1st from 10am – 3pm.

My Perfect Weekend

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture, Itineraries, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

The weather this past weekend could not have been more co-operative for writing about a Perfect Weekend.  Now of course one person’s perfect weekend may not be another’s but when I travel I love to read about personal experiences, especially from a local’s perspective.  As I have mentioned on this blog before, I was born and raised in Langley. I have watched it change and grow, and this year seemed like an appropriate time to reflect a bit on my home town.  I have a birthday coming up that may or may not start with a 4 and end with an 0.  So with that I thought I would share with you what my perfect weekend in Langley would include and maybe take a little trip or two down memory lane while we are at it.
