My Pregnancy Journey

I have been super MIA on here and for a good reason – we’re having a baby!! As I start my maternity leave and come to the realization that in 4 short weeks our baby girl will be with us, it’s making me reflect on my entire pregnancy. When women get pregnant, everyone thinks the […]

Book review – Diana: her true story

My first book of 2021 was Diana: Her True Story – in her own words – the 25th-anniversary edition. The royal family fascinates me and I have just watched season 4 of the crown, so I thought it was a good time to learn a bit more about the people’s princess. The book is in […]

Grouse mountain

With restrictions still in place in BC, Chris and I have been trying to find fun, outdoor activities to get us out of the house, while still staying safe and healthy. Neither of us skis or snowboard, but we thought it would be fun to explore Grouse Mountain. We booked tickets for the gondola that […]

Here’s to 2021

Okay, it’s been a hot minute. After my nan passed last year, we hit a full-on global pandemic and my want to write this blog completely disappeared. I write about traveling, restaurants, things we do and 2020 completely put a damper on that. My goal for 2021 is not to let that happen. While I […]

Chilliwack Sunflower Festival

I won’t sugarcoat it, going to Chilliwack is a trek from Vancouver, or for us, Metro Vancouver. But on a nice day, the drive is quite beautiful. My nan’s favourite flower was a sunflower and growing up I used to call them “nanny flowers”. After losing her earlier this year, I knew I wanted to […]

Our Take on Diner en Blanc

These past few months have been scary, unpredictable, and unprecedented. In what felt like out of nowhere, we were told to not leave our homes or see anyone if it wasn’t essential due to COVID-19. We went months without seeing our friends so when the curve started to flatten and we were able to see […]

A Goodbye to my Nan

On March 15th my world changed forever. I got the call I never wanted to get, my nan was gone. Over the past 5 months, we knew her disease was getting worse and she was running out of time. We weren’t yet ready for that day to come. So, in a way that she would […]

Bruncheria Cafe

Brunch is probably my favourite meal. My friend Cassidy and I love to go to new restaurants together. She has an egg allergy, so brunch is sometimes harder for her. We found a little place in New Westminster that neither of us had tried before. We met at Bruncheria Cafe, which looked super cute on […]

London – 2019

Before heading home, we were able to spend two nights in London. It’s become somewhat of a tradition for us to always end our trip in this city. Every time we go we try to do something we haven’t done before. This time was no different. We stayed in Kensington, which is a place we […]
