September Coffee Break

After sharing monthly favorites posts for one year, my little personal posts are taking on a new name. Welcome to my first coffee break post. To be fair, this post will be similar to my monthly favorites, but I’ll be sharing a new drink recipe with these posts each month, starting in October. That means, you’ll get a new drink recipe and we’ll catch up a little on life. Similarly to my favorites posts, I’ll share my current favorite things (recipes and more) and I’ll share a bit more about what’s been going on in our life. My hope with these posts is that you’ll be able to get to know me a little better. I also hope it helps you discover new recipes, products and…

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…

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…

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…

May Favorites (2018)

I’m taking a break from recipes today and I’m sharing my May favorites! The weather is finally getting warmer here and I’m getting ready to go on a little backpacking trip with my friend this weekend. We did this trail several times together, but it’s been about 3 years since our last overnight hiking trip… How does the time go by so fast?! I’m excited to be in nature for several days, away from my to-do list. I mentioned to someone at work that I was doing this, to which she responded: There must be an easier way to have fun? Hah! It’s true, but nothing is quite as rewarding as hiking 40km with a 30lbs bag on your back, sleeping in the woods, preparing your…
