Birthday.

Since I “became an adult,” I’ve been utterly obsessed with Disneyland. Not so much Disney movies, characters or memorabilia, but specifically the theme parks. This obsession hit me late, but hard, and if you recall, David and I last visited the Disney park in Hong Kong. Their park is unique in its own way, and while you can find classic rides like “It’s a Small World” and a mystical take on “Haunted Mansion,” it just made me long for the Disneyland. This year for my Birthday, we took a theme park focused trip down to LA and even stopped by Universal Studios! I don’t want to overtly declare how old I turned, but let’s just say it was a great way to welcome the last year of my 20s..

Take me back!

Admittedly, David does more than half of our cooking, but this breakfast was truly a joint effort. #lovesundays

Happy Monday!

Vancouver trip 

We drove up to Richmond and Vancouver BC for a quick day trip. If you time things correctly (leaving early/staying until late), it’s easy to enjoy a full day of good food, shops and downtown strolls without having to stay the night if you don’t want to. Given my recent indulgences, it was much better for my waistline to save a longer visit for another weekend and make this one a quickie. Vancouver is incredible, but nothing beats falling asleep in my own bed after a full day of eating and travel.
