Tiptoeing through the tulips

We headed out early this morning to the Chilliwack Tulip Festival to beat the crowds, however we arrived to hundreds of people all thinking the same thing. But we made the most of it, by dodging the selfie sticks, and avoiding the line ups to the designated photo areas. It was lovely to be out in all the colour, and the glorious sun.

Spring Break in San Diego

This March, our family of three headed down to San Diego for a week holiday. It’s very rainy over the winter months and we are always needing sunshine by the middle of March to brighten our mood. Funny enough, this year, it was 26 degrees at home, when we took off for sunny California. But going away always soothes the soul and uplifts the spirit. We had beach time and family time, and many an electric scooter ride. Sunsets were also an evening priority. These photos are a taste of our time together.

Searching for teapots

It’s April in B.C, and that means everything is green. The cherry trees are blossoming and in between rain showers the sun peeks through, and it makes the forest magical. We live in a beautiful area, and today we headed out with some friends to hike Teapot hill. Along the way, people have placed teapots and cups in the forest and so the kids love finding them all as we hike the hill. It’s great motivation!

It’s day four of my social media break, and it’s been amazing. It’s been so valuable to not feel the noise and distraction of constant scrolling, and I honestly feel like a different person. I even cleaned my kitchen pantry, which was filled with crackers and pasta from 2017. :) I’ve realized that avoidance and procrastination is so easy when you are constantly stimulated with others people’s lives. It was so wonderful to be in nature and not think about checking for messages, finding the teapots, while connecting with others. In real life.
