A dreamy white shiplapped lake cottage at Cultus Lake, BC


For those following me on Instagram stories, I KNOW you are waiting for this tour. And I’m finally delivering! I needed a getaway. Quickly. I scoured the internet for a condo in Maui first.

A hello, staycation ramblings and some blog changes

may bike ride in the forest

Hello all! First up, I just wanted to thank-you for being so gracious in my last post, The Next Chapter.

The next chapter

cabin getaway in front of Cultus Lake, BC Canada

So here we are again, with so many projects that leave me scratching my head, wondering why I can’t seem to pull more off myself… Ah! I know better than to compare. Everyone’s story is different so […]

The secret meadow trail ride with video


I’m not sure whether I should be patting myself on the back for hitting the bike trails pretty much every single day these days… Or ashamed of myself because I’m generally on those trails before I get a decent amount of work done. Whoops. I guess we may as well blame our improved weather. RIGHT […]
