Salt Spring Island

To celebrate our anniversary, and to have one last getaway before our wedding, Chris and I hopped on a ferry to Salt Spring Island. I had been to a few other Gulf Islands before (my old family cabin being on Mayne Island), but never to Salt Spring Island and we were excited to try something […]

Double Date in Fort Langley

One of my favourite places to go is Fort Langley. I know I’ve blogged about it before, but I just can’t get enough. The amazing buildings, the boutique shops, the fresh local food, what’s not to love? Our weather here in Vancouver is (was) finally beginning to look like Spring, so on the first warm, […]

My Best Friend’s Wedding

North Vancouver

When the summer weather hits, it makes me want to explore. Chris has lived here over 2 years and he had never taken the SeaBus over to North Vancouver. On a day we both had off together, we decided to make the most of it. We jumped on the Skytrain to Waterfront station in Vancouver […]

J-Girls’ Trip to Whistler

Last weekend the ‘J-Girls’ and I embarked on our annual girls’ getaway. Last year it was a low-key weekend trip to Mayne Island, this year the ladies and I were taking over Whistler. We took two separate cars. One left early in the morning, carrying three of the crew, while I drove up later in […]

Abbotsford Tulip Festival

When I think of Spring, I think of colourful flowers everywhere. I had heard of the Abbotsford Tulip Festival before, but I had never made the trek to check it out. This year, there had been more buzz about the festival because of the late blooms. It seemed that everyone was going to check it […]
