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…

Vegan for One Month

I’m going vegan for one month. When I said that to my family, friends and coworkers, they all had the same reaction: Aren’t you vegan already? Well no, not really. I eat a vegetarian diet 99% of the time, that’s true, but I’m not vegan. I do eat eggs, cheese and yogurt. So why am I going vegan for one month? While I love cheese and yogurt, I’m starting to think that it doesn’t like me. More specifically, I’m starting to think that dairy is worsening my acne. It’s just a theory, but I want to test it out. Okay, my acne is not (usually) horrible, but it’s bad enough that it makes me self-conscious and uncomfortable at times. For that reason, I think it’s worth the…

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…
