Lately.

Long time no blog hey? I wanna blame life but nah, I really just haven’t felt like it. I still love reading blogs while sipping my morning coffee, so, there’s that. I’m trying to think of all the things that I have been up to lately. Let’s start with the most fun! I got a . . .

All The Things.

Phew, it’s been a busy week here in Vancouver. First and foremost: I have an apartment again! Finally. It’s been a long time coming and I couldn’t be happier. It’s in the perfect location, it’s a 2 bedroom with a balcony, and my homegirl Christy is my roomie. Love her face. Her dad came strolling . . .

What A Night.

This weekend was absolutely lovely. I attended Farmacie 4.0 on Saturday evening and these dinners are always just so amazing. Basically, Farmacie is about connecting food and people. At each long table dinner, which are held in Vancouver, 100% of the proceeds go to local organizations and start ups. You can read all about Farmacie HERE. . . .

This City.

I may or may not have been a little MIA. oops. Anyway, I am finally back at work and it’s such a wonderful thing. There really is a reason why lululemon employees use the has tag #joblove. So this week I have been staying with my best friend Andy. We had a girls night on . . .

Forward.

I’m Home! And when I say home, because I understand it’s a little confusing these days, I mean Vancouver! I arrived on Saturday morning and it feels so nice to be back. After my 3 months hiatus, it’s nice to not move on, but move forward. My first night back, I met up with my . . .

Spiced Red Wine Poached Pears.

You Guys. I can’t even begin to explain how wonderfully rich and decadent these babies are. I am typically a chocolate kind of girl when it comes to dessert but these pears are something else. Poached pears sound super complicated but I think it’s actually the easiest dessert on the planet. We used THIS recipe. Basically, . . .

2015.

I feel like it’s going to be a good year. Partly because it has to be. There were many good moments in 2014, but overall, 2014 was hard. I learned a lot in 2014. How to break hearts (and really well, too), how to be more gentle and kind, and I’ve never placed more value . . .

This Will Make You Think.

Our society is addicted to our phones, social media, and email – according to everyone. I’ll be the first admit it. I AM. I crave that connection, I occasionally get nervous when I am waiting for a text or forgot my phone, and god forbid I don’t HOLD my phone walking down the street or have . . .

Holidays.

Only half kidding. But seriously, can anyone get away without it? NO. And if you tell me otherwise I might just have to shank you. (kidding, sorta). The theme of our holidays, aside from eating, was definitely low-key. My brother flew in from Vancouver on the 24th and we kept things pretty casual. This year . . .

Running Game.

This past weekend I ran my first 10km in over 2 months. I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t as easy as I remember. Perhaps the colder temperatures had something to do with it too, or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. What I do remember is the feeling I got while running. Perhaps . . .
