Adventure up the mountain :)

Went on a random adventure with the hubby. We haven't really explored this area too much yet so we went for a wander and hiked up the mountain. It was super nice and fun and the weather even held out for us. I love little adventures like this, just getting out and start walking and you find all these cool paths and places. I am so so blessed to live where we do, surrounded by so much beauty and nature and mountains. I am grateful every single day for this.

Sloppy Pancakes

Disastrous attempts at an oatmeal/vega pancake recipe haha. Twice I've tried this recipe and can't seem to get it right (hence no posting this on the main blog ;p)
They were quite good but still a little soggy in the middle :o Topped with peanut butter coconut whipped cream though and super delish! Very filling!



Waiting for the bus ;p

Today's Outfit

Hoodie: ReLove
Shorts: reconstructed Lip Service
Leggings: Alter-Eco
Beanie: Salt City Designs


Zen sort of Day

I've been trying to dedicate myself into doing more yoga at home. It's been some time since I've been regularly practicing. Today I tried a video that was far too intense for me! Considering I'm just getting back into it. Oops... haha. I do love doing yoga in our sunroom though with the mountains and lake. Doesn't get any more zen than that! 

I also took a moment to walk down to the lake today and let my thoughts flow. Ahhh breathe.

Day off with the Hubby

Had a lovely day with the hubby today. It was a super rainy day so we went to the Ainsworth Hot Springs nearby and soaked in the warmth while the rain danced on our skin. It's so uncommon that we actually have the feel of rain drops on our bare skin, I mean think about it; we usually avoid the rain or when we are in the rain we're wearing layers of clothing. So it was nice. And realizing. There was hardly anyone at the pools either which made it extra relaxing.

After the hot springs we drove into Kaslo to get a couple grocery items and to go for lunch at Blue Belle. I had a yummy "Rice Bowl" with quinoa, tofu, greens, and a miso gravy. Yum!

All n all, a beautiful cozy rainy day with my love.



Grilled Daiya over sunflower seed pate on a rice cake :) And lentils chips. I'm obsessed with these lentil chips!! :)

In this unpredictable Spring time, layering is a must! I love my cozy ReLove Hoodies. :)
And I'm still a sucker for leggings and skirts and long sleeves and, well, layers!
Off for a tea date with my wifey. <3

Playful Rainy Days

The sun was traded in for the rain today, and forecast for the rest of the week. I don't mind. The rain is refreshing and I have work to do anyways. There's something cozy about the rain too. Anything is beautiful if we appreciate it. :)

Anyways, what did I get up to today?

I went for tea with my bestie, wandered in the rain. Got to wear my Iron Fist rain boots (which I sadly didn't take a photo of). Came home to get some work done. And Lyla has been super affectionate since, trying to sleep on my lap while I work and even when I was drawing with my drawing pad on my lap later. Funny sweet kitty.

Break time!

Spent a little time outside in the sunshine to enjoy a new book my brother lent me and to take Lyla out to enjoy the sun too. :)


Day in the Sunshine :)

Spent all day outside in town yesterday. It was 20°C yesterday! Felt like summer!
It was so nice just walking around, having tea and enjoying the company of awesome people. :)

[making fun of my lovely friend saying "that goose is huge!!" haha, it was a normal sized goose ;) I love her]

 My brother and I went for a walk by the lake and visited our little family tree that my grandparents dedicated to our family several years ago.
