I am so blessed to live in such a magnificent part of the world. Since I am a girl that was raised on the West Coast of British Columbia, I have survived hundreds of thousands of days of rain in my lifetime. However, when a spectacular stretch of sunny days come along, all the depressing days of darkness seem to disappear from memory. Lucky for me and my memory, the past few days have been sunny and crisp so I took advantage of it all with a little snowshoeing expedition.
On Thursday one of my oldest and dearest friends Carla and I headed a few kilometres north to Whistler to visit another friend of ours, Shannon, who has a spankin new pad for her family’s winter getaways. We left Vancouver first thing in the morning with Knox and Wesley (Carla’s daughter) in tow. Almost as soon as we arrived, we connected with a trusted babysitter who would take care of our 3 little monkeys (Shannon was in Whistler with her youngest daughter Taylor) and we headed off to the trails at Lost Lake. OMG it was soooo beautiful let me tell you. What an experience. I decided ahead of time to document this trip in pictures and thank goodness I had made that call because there really are no words in my opinion. I had a few little personal blunders along the way (which is…well…welcome to my world). These blunders (or fuck ups) included paying for our McDonalds at the drive thru and then driving away before being handed the food (my first Big Mac Combo in over three months by the way). I am so lucky to have a friend like Carla who has witnessed my mindlessness for years and still manages to take very good care of me with an incredible amount of patience. I’ll start off my photo journal with my second blunder (first blunder was us having to turn back to the house to get a bottle and a soother for Knox…I can NOT leave home without those important devices).
We had such a killer hike and seriously, the beauty of it all was sincerely breathtaking. We most definitely had to cap our day off with a glass of wine accompanied by an orgasm for the tastebuds at Trattoria di Umberto. Thanks for the makeout sesh Tratt…yum yum.
Side note: I love…actually adore Tracy Anderson but I have GOT to do more fitness outside… I mean really.
