A New Adventure

I don’t even know how to start this post. There’s so much that has been going on behind the scenes lately and it’s time that I share the news with you. Here goes… We’re moving to British Columbia! Let me explain: A little under a week ago, I accepted a position in British Columbia. The complete opposite side of the country. A big 52 hour drive away from the place where I was born. Me, a girl who never moved more than an hour and a half away from my family. I’ve been dreaming of living out West all my life and it’s finally happening. Honestly, it still doesn’t feel real. In less than 3 weeks, Shaun and I are leaving for our biggest adventure…

April Favorites (2018)

April has been a busy month over here. Not only did we celebrate a few birthdays, I’ve been busy behind the scenes working on a few projects for the blog, which I’m excited to share with you guys next month. I have some exciting giveaways coming soon, along with a challenge for the month of May and of course some recipes! I won’t lie, I’m feeling a little behind on recipe testing and photography right now. Although to be honest, I’ve been feeling like this since I graduated and started working last summer. I’m always overwhelmed by ideas and exciting projects I want to work on, but I never seem to find the time to accomplish everything I want to. I’m also trying to find a…

Our Road Trip to Gaspésie in Pictures

We came back from our road trip to Gaspésie one week ago, yet it feels like it was yesterday. It also feels like it was forever ago. How are we September 13 already?!  Today is actually Shaun and I’s 4 year anniversary. I guess it would be a good occasion to share some pictures from our last road trip!  Some of you may have seen some snaps from our trip to Gaspésie on Instagram. I shared a few on Instagram stories. I had so much fun taking pictures of the gorgeous places we visited, so I thought I’d share some with you. I won’t go on and on about the details of our trip, but I hope you enjoy this little summary filled with pictures of the beautiful Gaspésie…

Sugar-Free Backpacking Menu + Energizing Trail Mix!

I would choose hiking over one hour of cardio at the gym any day. I love being able to workout outside. Not only do you get a killer workout, but you get to see beautiful views and breathe in some fresh air. How can the gym compare to this view!? Don’t get me wrong, I love going to the gym! I just prefer to go hiking whenever possible. Thankfully, we have a park 5 minutes from our new apartment and lately, I’ve been hiking and running almost twice a day… Yes, I’m obsessed! I love day hikes, but every summer, we plan at least one overnight backpacking trip. This is usually a 3 day hike on the Fundy Footpath, my favorite trail in New-Brunswick! Check it out if you live near NB…

Why Travel Alone? My solo adventures in Quebec & Ontario

When I told people I was going to drive 16 hours by myself around Quebec and Ontario, the only reaction I got was a worried look. They all repeated “alone?”, making sure they heard correctly. At first, I was confident. I stood by my decision and explained to them my detailed plan to which they all replied “be careful, it can be dangerous, especially for a young woman.” After being told that same thing many times, I’m not going to lie, I started to doubt myself. Should I travel by myself? Will I be able to drive so far without getting lost or falling asleep at the wheel? I’m so happy I didn’t let those comments stop me from traveling alone. It was truly one of the best experiences of my life. Here&#8217…
