A few weeks ago while I was out running errands I stumbled upon a few side walks with special little reminders on them. It definitely brought a smile to my face so I thought maybe it could bring one to yours today. xx
There is something extra special about pretty street lights at night… Gastown’s old fashioned street lights stole my heart last weekend so I’ll be paying extra attention to all the sparkling lights this weekend (especially since there are so many holiday lights out now!). Hope you catch a glimpse of something special too!!
It seems like every time I leave the apartment I stop to take a picture of the leaves. They are such an inspiration and it’s like natures art show in every park, on every tree lined street, and on almost every sidewalk you step on. That is one perk of living in Vancouver- despite the rain, the leaves are something spectacular in Autumn!
Other than the little ally ways and canals, the Piazza San Marco was quintessentially Venice to me. We spent a good amount of our trip there shopping, enjoying the architecture, and feeding the pigeons. Even though it was definitely the most crowded area of Venice it was the area I remember most. These photos don’t do it justice but I hope you can tell why I was smitten…
A while ago we did dinner and a game night with another couple. It made me so happy that I decided I need more games in my life and I think it’s time to incorporate them into more weekends. I hope you all find something that makes your weekend a little more fun! xx
This photo of my extremely curious cat reminds me to be more curious about things around me. I leave for Italy today and I want to make sure I take full advantage of everything there! Happy Friday!!
Fall is in full swing and I am totally inspired by the leaves. I have even been wearing a lot of brown, red, and orange… I didn’t notice until my husband pointed out the fact that I had worn orange three days in a row. My thinking is- if you like it, wear it! So that’s what I have been doing. Plus, who doesn’t love playing in leaves- it’s so quintessentially fall!
Since I am one of those people who think presentation is everything I am always looking to make simple things a little more special. I love girls day with some of the other animation wives here in Vancouver and I decided to try some DYI projects to keep things fresh. Also, since I got Mrs. Lilians cocktail swatchbook I have become infatuated with drink stirrers. They are a simple way to make even lemonade or iced tea a little more festive!
Even though I’m not a fan of cold weather, I do enjoy the briskness of a nice fall day. Pumpkin flavored everything, pretty leaves, cozy sweaters, and of course some of my favorite holidays (which means some serious baking) make up my fall favorites. Since last year was my first fall in Vancouver I wasn’t really sure what to expect. This year, however, I know to take full advantage of this season and not let it fade away without my enjoyment of those little things that make it so special.
