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…

Healthy Road Trip Snacks and Meals

We’re on day 3 of our road trip from New Brunswick to British Columbia. The biggest road trip we’ve ever done, twelve days on the road. As I’m finishing this post, I’m in a small Air BnB in Ottawa after a great Canada Day yesterday in our capital city. During our road trip, we’re doing a mix of camping in National and Provincial parks and sleeping in Air BnB’s in a few big cities. Since we’re passing through large cities, it makes it easy for us to stop and buy food as needed, but I do like to bring as much as we can from home to save money. Also, as we’re moving across the country, I wanted to clear out our pantry before leaving without having…

June Favorites (2018)

As I reflect on my June favorites, I realize how busy this past month has been. Every minute of every day was planned and I didn’t stop until I went to bed at night, sometimes later than my usual early bedtime. Needless to say that Shaun and I are exhausted, but happy. Why are we so busy? Well, not only are we working our usual full time jobs and running this blog, but we’ve been planning and packing for our big move to British Columbia. Leaving New Brunswick is bittersweet, but we’re so excited for our new adventure! This weekend is our last weekend in NB and we’re driving to Moncton to spend time with family and friends. My weekend is packed, but I wouldn’t want it any other way…
