when you go to the mainland

I think for probably the first time in like, 7 years I went to Vancouver and it didn’t rain. Just let that sink in for a minute. I was in Vancouver and it wasn’t raining. Not even a little. I was straight BLESSED UP. I went to visit a few of my favourite ladies before the husband and I leave this glorious west coast for good. It’s always nice to have an experienced Vancouverite in your back pocket to help…

salt spring island

Make sure you’ve got snacks and a drink for this one guys, because I took… more photos than I anticipated. We’ve lived on the west coast for like, seven years. Which is a pretty solid chunk of time, right? But in all that time, we’ve never made the trip over to Salt Spring Island. Considering it’s only an hour of travel time, that’s pretty pathetic. So, since we’re moving to the east coast soon enough, we finally got our act…

life lately + food update

Okay, first thing is first: we recently got a diffuser and my whole house smells so good right now you guys, I just needed to get that out there. It’s distracting and wonderful. I don’t know about you guys, but February snuck up on me so fast. I feel like Christmas was both forever ago and only yesterday. Time is just moving so fast! Before I know it, we’re going to be packing up and leaving this beautiful city where we’ve…

a message from my tiny couch

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday night. It feels like a success that we’ve made it this far this week, doesn’t it? I’m counting it as one, for sure. Class for me started this week, which has so far involved me doing two gruelling ‘introduce yourself’ assignments. Just kidding. About the gruelling part. I’m sure you got that. Anyways. We’re off to a pretty good start to the week, and I’m thinking that’s going to carry on. I went to the gym yesterday…

thoughts on food

I have been thinking a lot about food. I mean, what else is new really, but with a more critical and determined eye than usual. Normally its just like ‘hell yeah, lets eat it’. I’ve been trying to be consistent in watching what I eat and choosing my food carefully. And then, you know, the holidays happened and all of that went out the window. Which isn’t really an excuse but I’m not going to drag myself over it, so.…

cold remedy: chorizo and christmas trees

I don’t think I’ve ever gotten this many colds in a year, but here I am again, wrapped in 10,000 blankets and listening to Sound of Silence on repeat. That cold life guys… is not lit. But I dragged my sorry self out of the house with ye olde husband to mail some christmas presents and we figured we might as well make an afternoon out of it since we waited in line at Canada Post for about 3 days. Hell yeah,…

impromptu date night

Hello ragtime gals (and other folk), and lets welcome myself back to the internet! I’ve been (relatively) unplugged, at least from the blogging world, for a little while. You know, soul searching etc. Kidding! Kind of. I spend so much time thinking about how much I want to blog, but then don’t do it. I think I put a lot of pressure on myself to have like, a certain kind of voice or style of blogging that I think everyone…

favourite place: hide & seek coffee

Guys, I found the most perfect place ever. I’d basically like to move in ASAP. I knew it was true love when I walked in and they were playing my all time faves The New Pornographers Challengers. Feel free to turn this on and continue reading: Myriad Harbour – TNP The place is floor to ceiling with beautiful whitewashed walls, light hardwood, plants everywhere and energetic but softly coloured prints. Does it get more perfect? It does not. We were…

northFORTYEIGHT

For a day that started like this: It actually ended up being pretty wonderful. After surviving a day of work with a bitter old man of a summer cold, I was rewarded with a pleasant & hilarious dinner with some of our favourite people (not pictured here because they’re too darn attractive for this blog and also because I didn’t take a picture). The weather matched my health and was grumpy and ridden with mood swings. Rain off, rain on,…
