Canada is not called Glorious and Free by coincidence, and this term isn’t just reserved for our Western neighbours. Canada (all of Canada) is a spectacularly gorgeous country. Lauren and I have been travelling so much lately we needed a reminder of how blessed we are to have such bountiful nature in our backyard. Especially the end of summer can sometimes get us into a funk. The days are shorter, colder, with less light, and not that I am one of those “Mercury is in retrograde” type of gals, but I do feel the effect of less sunshine on my mental state.
This past weekend, I got to spend some quality time with my fur baby, Abby! Abby lives with my mom, about an hour and a half away, so it’s hard for me to see her since I moved to the city 4 years ago. Abby is quite literally, the sweetest golden girl you have ever met.

Especially in the beginning of Spring, coming out of winter for me is like breaking out of a long-ass hibernation, feeling like a raging hangover. Unless you are living in parts of the country where the landscape is hard to miss like beautiful British Columbia or Amazing Alberta, you can easily forget to simply “get outdoors”. What better way to kick the winter blues and escape the concrete jungle than go for a good old wander where the wifi is weak but the views are everything?
Feeling those winter blues? The post-Christmas/New Years detox can be downright depressing. Days are short (really really short), which makes it almost impossible to muster the strength to do anything besides Netflix and Pajama-ing. Don’t get me wrong, on some days I fully approve of Pajam-flix.
