Happy Birthday! We would have made you a card, but didn't quite know where to send it. But today, on your 125 birthday, we just wanted to let you know how much we love you. We love your mountains, and your ocean. We love the green towering forests, and the misty mornings over the docks. You're beautiful. We even love your rain, because we know you wouldn't look at lovely without it. We love your sports teams, even more when they are winning. We love the people that live here, all the vast cultures melding into a beautiful mosaic. We also love we can get sushi on almost any street. We love all the people doing amazing things in business, and music, and arts, and social change that live here. We love how proud people are to call you home. Despite your flaws (don't worry, every city's got them), you've got a lot going for you. Basically Vancouver, we think your pretty amazing, and we love you.
