farewell to something great

As the days go by this week, work is coming to an close and vacation is getting closer and closer, and so far, I'm feeling good.  I have to admit, I'm not too stressed or worried at what the future holds, and that's mainly because all I can seem to think about is vacation.  What I'm going to wear, eat, and see.  How much sleep and relaxing I'm going to get to do.  We all know how good I am at sleeping, so it's very important to any of my vacations.
This vacation feels like it's meaning a little more to me than any other.  Two weeks, on the road, exploring, as cheesey as it sounds, it feels like the a farewell from something great to an introduction to what lies ahead and gives me a great feeling of calm.  And I like that.
Things will definitely be quiet around here while I'm away, but follow along via twitter, and instagram to see what we're up to while on the road.
Have a great couple of weeks and see ya when we get back!!

purple dress

These photos were taken last week when the sun was actually shining in Vancouver.  This week, not so much.  It's been rainy and grey and it's making me crazy.  I know, I'm speaking to the stereotypical blogger conversation of weather, but when it's gloomy out for more than a day or two, there is nothing else to talk about except for how gloomy it is.  We're heading into the middle of June here people! 
Thank goodness in just over a week, the Bf, the dog and I will be piled into our car leaving for our road trip down the west coast.  We're taking the coastal highway all the way down to Los Angeles.  We'll be doing a bit of camping, and hotel-ing all along the way.
I couldn't be more excited!  
I guess technically I don't mind if it rains up until we leave, it'll make the feeling of vacation that much sweeter!
If anyone has suggestions of places to go, things to do and see along the coastal highway or in a few of our stops, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle, I'd love to hear them!

glass half full

Well, here I am with my freshly baked cookies and a glass of milk, to tell you about my latest news.  And if I can say, thank you to all the supportive comments on my mention of a change coming up.  I'm leaving my current job in retail management.  I've been feeling like it's time for a bit of a break.  I'm at a point in my life where I have all these 'things' that I want to try and the list has been growing as time goes by, so why not now.  I have a few plans in place, including a couple of courses, and the hope of some freelance writing and blogging, now it's just a matter of putting it all in motion.  Remember when I said I may need to lean on you for some support? This is kinda what I meant.  Any suggestions, contacts, advice or just moral support is kinda what I'm looking for.  It feels a bit scary to be trying out new things in a place where I don't know a lot of people, even after being here for a year and a half, but it's kind of exciting too.  I've always been a glass half full kinda gal.  Here goes nothing!
