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…

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 toย Sound of Silenceย 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,…

Big ups to Nita Lake Lodge for making this the best honeymoon ever. Hot tip: give yourself at least a day between your wedding and your honeymoon to collect yourself.

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,…

Sidney by the Sea

It’s been a busy few weeks (months) around ye ol’ homestead, so we decided we were just gonna make a day for us. A day date, if you will. Yeah, we’re those people now. Not sorry. We started the day off by planting some tomatoes in our pajamas. Officially my favourite early morning task and if my house wouldn’t turn into a tomato jungle, I’d do it every morning. After scrubbing dirt from hands and putting on our human disguises,…

You’re on Fuego

OKAY, I’ve been raving about this place for weeks now, it’s time for you guys to get a taste of it too. Last year, one of our favourite haunts burnt nearly down to the ground (RIP, still mourning forever). While nothing will ever replace Cafe Mexico for us, we were excited to see something else spring from the ashes… aptly named Fuego. Talk about making the best of a bad situation. The exterior is quiet, fits right into the wash…

Meet me at Murchies

When you live in a city that’s full of tourists for half the year, you automatically stay away from certain places that you know become overrun with enthusiastic cruise ship travellers. Murchies is one of them. But when it was suggested we meet up there amidst running around, itย seemed like a painfully obvious solution. So we went. It was – surprise!- another grey day, but it was cozy next to the big windows and the perfect place for watching people…

Jam, Chinatown

Oh ho ho, is there anything better on an overcast winters morning than breakfast? Well, yeah breakfast that you don’t have to wait in line for, but I promise you that Jam is worth every minute. Jam, you are worth the wait. Labs and I hit the dusty road to our favourite breakfast place bright & early the other morning because there’s simply no other way to do it. Here’s the thing: no one loves brunch like west coasters love…
