Relax Refresh Recharge

image1-5So, I just got back from an awesome 3 days away in Whistler. I always forget how lucky I am to live so close to a place that is filled with so much beauty!

D and I had plans to go out and let loose on Sunday night but instead we found ourselves back in our hotel room by 9! We decided to have a quick night-cap but in the time it took for me to pour a glass of wine he was fast asleep. So, I enjoyed my wine & off to sleep I went.

On Monday, we decided to make the most of our day. We walked around the village, patio hopped, and ended the day in the hot tub. It was perfect! I’ve been super stressed with work, so a few days of doing nothing was exactly what I needed.. It was so great to relax and recharge before this crazy month of October kicks in.

I took a few photos throughout the day yesterday and thought I would share them with you! Hope you enjoy!

Sorry Vancouver…


I have a confession.. Since the young age of 16 I have been having a love affair, yup that is right I have been cheating on my beautiful city of Vancouver….

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico has a BIG piece of my heart.

I can still remember my first time landing in Vallarta.. thinking “WOW, why is it so green? where is the beach?” Shortly after that thought I discovered the beach and instantly fell in love. The people, the beach, the culture.. you name it and I loved it!. I loved it so much that at the age of 22 I decided to pack my bags and move there! For the next 8 years I spent more time in Vallarta than I did in Vancouver. It had become my home. Even when I was technically living in Vancouver I would go back to visit as much as I could.. which was pretty often thanks to Transat, the awesome company I worked for at the time.

My trips have become less frequent but every year when I return my heart and my soul gets a recharge.. I just booked my next trip; Feb 2018 can not come soon enough.. If you have never had the chance to visit Vallarta its a must do.. I promise! You will fall in love with it and all of it’s charm the same way I did all those years ago..
