August Favorites

It’s the last day of August (I can’t believe it) and it’s time for my August favorites post! As I’m writing this, I’m sitting in a Starbucks drinking a decaf Americano, on my way to Seattle. It’s my first time in Washington and as we’re living in British Columbia, we’re taking advantage and exploring all the places we can out west! I’m looking forward to a weekend in Seattle exploring the city, trying new vegetarian restaurants and camping at Olympic National Park. Is there anything we need to do or see? Let me know! As we’re getting ready to explore the city, I’ll leave you with my August favorites. Currently Reading This month, I was ambitious and read…

Healthy Lunchbox Recipes

Healthy lunchbox recipes. Because soon, it will be back to school (some of you may have already started!). This time of year is a little bittersweet for me. This is my second year not going back to school and I miss it! I know, I’m weird. But seriously, I would much rather study for the rest of my life than work. Considering I could get paid to study of course. Hah! Part of it is that I miss the freedom of university. I miss having a few classes and being free the rest of the time. While I was in university, I could choose when to study, when to go to the gym and when to relax. I had so much time, even if a good part of it was spent studying. You don’t get that…

July Favorites

I can’t believe this is the last day of July… Clearly I waited until the last minute to share my July favorites. June and July have been crazy busy for us with moving across the country and all. We left New Brunswick on the last day of June and we’re now settled in our new home in British Columbia. I have so many things to share with you guys, so let’s jump right in! Our New Home Of course this is the biggest news this month. We’re officially in Vernon, our new home! We could not love this place more. Okay, well maybe we could if this heat wave would go away, but all in all, we love our new home. I shared some pictures of the city in my Instagram…

Our Road Trip Across Canada – Part 2

We’re officially in British Columbia, our new home after a long road trip across Canada. 11 days on the road, from New Brunswick to Vernon, British Columbia. We arrived home last week and we’ve been busy ever since with unpacking, cleaning and organizing our life in this new city. Let me tell you, there’s a lot to do when moving across the country! All of it is worth it though because I can honestly say that we live in paradise. Well, paradise in my eyes anyways… To me, Vernon looks like a mix between Italy and somewhere down south, like California or Florida. Maybe it just feels like this now, while it’s summer and everything is new and exciting. I’m sure things will change once winter arrives, but for…

Our Road Trip Across Canada – Part 1

As I’m finishing this post, we’re driving in the middle of the Canadian prairies. We’re officially halfway across Canada, 6 more days to go! Things are very flat around here, just as I imagined, but it’s beautiful in its own kind of way. Since we’re halfway through our trip across Canada, I thought I’d share with you guys what we’ve been up to up till now. I have a lot to share, so dividing our trip into two posts seemed like the best way to do it. I had to choose from all my photos and trust me, there are a lot more. But I chose my favorites to share with you guys today, along with a few details from each day and each city/park we’ve visited. Without further ado, here…
