Even thinking about the phrase ‘four day weekend’ is enough to have me grinning from ear to ear. I am welcoming this Easter long weekend in both a relaxing and adventurous manner. Between packing, visiting with friends, and enjoying the sunshine, the next four days promise to be chock block full of good times. It’s going to be a remarkable long weekend; I hope you enjoy yours. Hoppy Easter!
From city to country | I spent last week away in Calgary. The 5 day trip gave me time to catch up with a beautiful friend (as well as make a few new ones), shop, explore, take in the scenic skylines and even escape to icy cold, quaint Banff for the night.
Pick me ups | While in Banff, we spotted Toooloulous’, a delicious all day breakfast joint complete with checked tablecloths and mason jar glasses. After breakfast we strolled the streets popping in boutiques, souvenir stops and frequenting the many candy shops. I picked up my very favorite, a strawberry Swiss Milka bar.
The longest goodbye | I’m finally leaving my sweet Victoria for the big city. I begin my career in Vancouver a week from Monday. I’m thrilled for a fresh alternative city to explore, yet down to leave behind my family and friends. The next week will be spent as this one was, catching up with loved ones.
A very Good Friday | I started out my long weekend by visiting one of my favorite local boutique spas, Silk Road. After two blissful hours of pampering, I perused the shop products and ended up with this rich skincare oil.
Be loved | Friday continues on with my going away dinner at Victoria’s Be Love restaurant. I can’t express my love for this dairy, wheat, meat and sugar free restaurant. Their meals are exquisite with service to match. Find out more here http://beloverestaurant.ca/
