tiny home tour!

The satisfaction of finally have a couch and no longer having to sit on a stool knows no bounds, you guys. I am pleeeeeased. And, because you guys are cute and nice and have actually requested some pictures, I figured I’d post like a mini house tour sort of thing with a few shots of what we’ve done with the place. It’s not quite done – more pictures will go up on the wall and you know, a few things…

slow your roll

CONFESSION ZONE I have been having a little internal war with myself over the last few days and have been hellishly blue as a result. I’ve been feeling totally purposeless without knowing when/where I’ll be working, feeling like I need to have a ‘good’ ‘impressive’ job right off the bat, etc etc. You all know how this internal diatribe goes and it is bogussssss. Really, I should be focusing on enjoying the brand new city I’m living in, taking the…

we have arrived

The time has come guys! After well over a year of planning and dreaming and wishing and more planning, we are officially Haligonians. And daaaaaaaaaang does it feel good! It’s day three and this is the first day we’ve had any real ‘down’ time, which isn’t saying much because we haven’t really relaxed at all today. BUT that being said, it’s all the best kind of busy and tired because we’ve been exploring and hustling around the city getting acquainted…

20 days

I wish you guys could see how slowly I’m typing this out because blogging with a limp noodle hand is comical. Prime example of why no one should trust me near heavy machinery. WE LEAVE IN 20 DAYS! To what feels like the whole other side of the world and we couldn’t be more excited. Literally every day we’re planning and picking things out and curating our new home. The Okanagan has been treating us so well, and even though…

twenty seventeen

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had the very merriest of holiday seasons and enjoyed it all – the good and the bad. I gotta say, I’m happy to see the back of 2016. I’m not super into new years resolutions because I feel like if you’re going to make a positive change you should just do it when you’re actually ready and hopefully then it’ll actually stick. However! I am into the renewed sense of purpose that…

family

I’ve been really trying to keep up with blogging more because I honestly love having something to look back on for all of our adventures. It makes for such great memories. I think I always think I have to have some kind of occasion to document, but I’m going to try taking more photos of us at home, doing regular stuff. Because honestly, it’s usually those quiet moments between us that mean the most, and this is just such a…

storm season

Well, our end of the island and the lower mainland are battening down the hatches as we speak. Word on the street is that we’re bracing for some of the worst storms this side of 1999! Three in a row, a triple threat if you will. I’m hoping by ‘triple threat’ they mean like Zac Efron in High School Musical, but I’ve been aggressively corrected because apparently it means that there’s going to be like… you know, damage and stuff.…

home inspiration: part three

I ran, I hid, I’ve survived until now, but I think the cold that’s been hunting me down has finally caught up to me. We all knew it would happen, but I pretended that it wouldn’t. So here I am, snuggled in the world’s best, greatest, coziest, local-iest inspired (not a word but exciting) blanket, plaid slippers on my feet, tea in my mug, and my favourite candle burning. That all sounds nice, but mostly all I can taste is…

What we’re watching: episode one

Ah Netflix, my one true boo. Thanks for always being there for me and providing me with endless opportunities to watch new and exciting things. Of course, I don’t do that – I rewatch the same three things over and over because I don’t like change or surprise endings that make me cry. The actual one true boo (re: fiancé) constantly drags me kicking and screaming into new shows that (of course) I love, thus expanding my repertoire. So, what…
