A Summer Celebration

As I’m writing this, the leaves are falling outside, the sun sets earlier and we’ve had several rainy days. Fall is a beautiful season, but this post is a little throwback to a sunny and warmer celebration this past summer. My family hosted a large beach potluck in July to celebrate three events: my sister’s

Yosemite National Park

This summer, my family and I traveled to California to visit our relatives. The big event for this trip was my cousin Eena’s wedding (we’ll save that for another post!).

Happy Canada D’Eh!

My family and I, along with our family-friends, decided to drive down to Washington for the long-weekend. We all found it hilarious that we would be spending a small portion of Canada Day (July 1st) in the United States, but it definitely made for a less busy, less bustling and more relaxed celebration. We spent the

Hello!

First blog post! Woohoo! For those who don’t know, I’m Angie. I’m a twenty-something-year-old from the west coast of Canada. My family, friends, small towns, sweet cafés, sushi and record shops make my heart happy. I also love road trips, hiking and reading. There’s so much of the world’s beauty and history that I want to
