A day trip to Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls Chilliwack BC Canada

A day trip to Bridal Veil Falls Today I’m taking you on a new little adventure in my area! Just a short 45 min away from my front door is one of the most iconic attractions that I hadn’t visited since I was a kid! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the […]

A train to Seattle and Pike Place Market


Funny how life works out. When I knew my sister would be in Maui in November, I attempted to join her part of the time. I already knew it wasn’t the right time of year for me to go, but you say the word Maui and nothing else exists in my vocabulary! Turns out, that […]

A charming trip to Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory

A charming trip to Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory This week didn’t go as planned… I’m trying a whole bunch of new foods and other things lately and a few things went south. Whoops… I am quickly finding out, changes (you read about in THIS post) don’t come overnight. Your body can’t even handle that. So […]

What my longer Hawaiian vacation did for me


I’m currently sitting on my pallet sofa on the patio, wearing a tan with a cozy blanket close by, since our current BC Canada weather is overcast, yet still gratefully warm. There’s no flowers in bloom within my view…. something I’m not accustomed to seeing lately. Note to self: get some flowers. It’s a struggle […]

Strolling through charming Toronto during fall

Brick filled historic Roncesvalles, Toronto, Ontario-003

I happen to live 1 hour east of Vancouver, BC. It’s a big, beautiful vibrant city! Or so I’ve heard. Would you believe I’ve only made my way that way for bus tours as a kid, or sporadic needs such as the airport? I know. I KNOW! However, this directionally challenged country girl has just […]

Taking in the stunning Wailea Beach Path (with video)


Hi! Not quite Aloha any longer since I am officially back home in Oh Canada! Where did the time go? I had meant a million times over to post more while on vacay and show you a few sights, however each draft just never made it to completion. I call that a small success I […]

Permission to thrive


When I first arrived in Maui, the two big aloe vera plants beside my outdoor lanai had seen better days. I’ve frequented this condo many times over the years and honestly, their current state shocked me.  They were both orange and dry. I honestly thought they were on their way out.  So I decided to […]

On being back in Maui

Kamaole Beach 2 in Kihei, Hawaii

Week one here on the island is already a wrap. Can you even believe that?! Right now, I’m kinda running to all my familiar hotspots and just getting a lay of the land once again.  I attempted a journal blog post. It was fun and rather therapeutic, however I’m not sure where something that detailed […]

A dreamy white shiplapped lake cottage at Cultus Lake, BC


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. Of course… When that didn’t pan out with my yesterday timeframe, […]
