cascade falls

There are so many incredible trails and waterfalls in British Columbia so I thought I would start checking a few off my list. Cascade Falls is about an hour and a half easy drive outside of Vancouver. Considering I went here on a Saturday afternoon, I didn’t find the park that busy.

Much like most outdoor places within the mountains, there is so cell service! So for all those Snapchat lovers out there, you’ve been warned.

After I spent some time looking at the waterfall and taking a few picture, I wasn’t ready to go home. I saw a couple people come down a road beside the waterfall wearing their bathing suites and carrying towels. What was up there? I wanted to find out. A few others and I went up this road and found a small opening into the forest. After trying to navigate our way around the trees and down a really slippery slope, there was a huge opening of little pools with the current running through it.

blueberry picking

I work just outside of the city so I'm always passing by farmers marketing and blueberry patches. I don't know what it is about Vancouver but I have never seen so many blueberry farms in my whole life! There are rows and rows of blueberry farms! I stopped by one on my way home from work and picked a whole bundle of blueberries.

the calgary stampede

One of my best friends Darcie invited me to go to the Calgary Stampede with her this year and without even a hesitation, I accepted. Finally, I felt like I was going home to the mothership! I packed two dresses, cut off jean shorts, two tank tops and a pair of sunglasses. All I needed was a pair of cowboy boots. When we arrived, can you guess what our first stop was? You guessed it! I bought myself my first pair of authentic cowboy boots! I've never been happier. 

Darcie, myself, her dad and a bunch of his work friends all went to a rodeo. This was my first time ever going to one. All of the events were super quick which made each one really exciting. They would introduce each of the cowboys before their event. They had the hottest cowboy names ever and were so dreamy. There is something about a man in a cowboy hat, tucked in button down, jeans and cowboy boots that makes my heart flutter.
