Our First 3 Months in British Columbia

It’s been 3 months since we moved to British Columbia and left New Brunswick. 3 full months away from family and friends. I get a lot of questions about our move. People asking how we’re finding it in British Columbia, away from home. The truth is, it’s so much better than I ever expected. I was honestly expecting to miss home a lot more. Don’t get me wrong, I do miss my family and friends (and my dog so much!), but I expected tears at one point, which hasn’t happened yet. I suppose we’ve been too busy to really miss home so far. Whenever we’re not working, we’re exploring everything this beautiful province has to offer. I think it’s safe to say…

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…

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…
