Wine, Family Time and a Wedding in Kelowna

A few weeks ago Zevi and I squeezed in one last weekend in BC before summer was over. Some friends of ours were getting married in Kelowna, so we figured we’d make a little weekend getaway out of it.  On Wednesday night we flew in to Kelowna. I do love a good road trip, but it…

Weekending: Friends, Family and Sunshine

It was a scorching hot weekend in Calgary. It really feels like summer has arrived!  On Friday my sister-in-law and her partner arrived. They’re doing a cross-Canada road trip, starting in Victoria and ending up in Montreal, so they took the opportunity to stop here for a couple of nights. Unfortunately Zevi was working so…

Family Time in Tofino

After a great four days in BC last weekend, I headed west again on Thursday. This time, Zevi and I were meeting up with his family in Tofino to celebrate his dad’s birthday. Zevi, his sisters, and his dad’s wife had been planning this trip for a few months, all without his dad knowing anything…

A Family Shuswap Weekend

This weekend I went out to my family’s place on the Shuswap lake for the first time in 2016. As usual, it was a lovely mix of family time, good food, relaxing, fitness, and a little bit of hard(ish) labour.  My sister, her boyfriend, and I hitched a ride up with my dad on Thursday…

My Easter Weekend

My Easter weekend was decidedly lacking in chocolate and bunnies, but I’m not mad about it! On Friday, my brother came over to my place, and we went out for dinner to my neighbourhood vietnamese spot. I think they’re going to start recognizing me in there pretty soon since I’ve started going there so often! I…

A Ski Weekend at Revelstoke

We celebrated my dad’s birthday a little early last week with the big surprise party, but his real birthday was this past Saturday so we thought we might as well celebrate again! Zevi and I, along with my parents, my brother and his girlfriend, and my sister headed up to Revelstoke for the weekend for some…

The Big Surprise

This weekend was centred around one thing: the big surprise. My dad turns 60 next week, and my siblings, my mom and I had been scheming and planning for a surprise party for him. The big day was Saturday, and all in all it was a pretty huge success! I’d never planned a surprise party before,…

Christmas 2015

Hello! I hope that you had a lovely Christmas and that you have a chance to relax a little bit this week now that the craziness of the holidays is behind us. I love the lead up to Christmas and always feel a little bit sad when its over, but the days after Christmas are always nice opportunity…

The Final Pre-Christmas Weekend

I had a great last weekend before Christmas. I hope you did too! On Friday I headed to our friends’ annual Christmas potluck and gift exchange. They always do a white elephant exchange (the one where you have the opportunity to steal gifts along the way) and things tend to get pretty crazy with such…
