  1. Crunchy orange leaves, waiting to be climbed over
  2. Scarves, jackets, gloves, beanies and boots (what will winter bring?)
  3. The first of the crockpot meals, pulled pork tacos no less!
  4. Netflix marathons…
  5. With comfy trackies and warm tea
  6. The first snowfall of the season!
  7. Rosy cheeks and cold noses
  8. My first and last Pumpkin Spice Latte
  9. Fairy lights in pine trees
  10. Cold, crispy air on my very early morning walks to work

I Think I’m Fallin’ For You

Well, well, well. Here we are. Two weeks shy of our six month anniversary of our Australian hiatus and we’re packing our backpacks to head back home (only for two and a half weeks!).

Yesterday was Canadian thanksgiving, but also the last official day the bike park was open and therefore the last day of the summer season! It was quite fitting for those two things to fall on the same day (ha, Fall – geddit?). It was quite a day of reflection and to feel thankful for this incredible place. I’m feeling so full of joy looking back on our first Canadian summer.

The last few weeks in particular have been a dream, from conquering my goals in the bike park;

to walking into work everyday with a huge smile on my face;

to having Alistair’s girlfriend Ellen visit, having a ball with her and hitting up the train wreck hike again (it doesn’t get old!);

to watching Fall officially hit Whistler, with trees changing into the most vibrant of colours;

and seeing the first snowfall of the season!!!

We’ve also spent a small fortune on winter gear, snowboards and ALL THE LAYERS. I’m getting so pumped for winter and what this new season will bring for us.
But first, to head home and celebrate the wedding of two very dear friends! Can’t wait to see some familiar faces, eat some fresh food and soak up the last of the sunshine. See you all very soon!!!

P.s. I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to wish my love a very, very happy 29th birthday!
I feel like I’ve said a variation of these words a million times since we left, but my goodness I am one lucky duck. To get to explore so many new places, a new way of life and new experiences everyday with your best friend by your side is a dream come true.

We both thought this move might be a bit of a test for us, and I think it’s safe to say we’ve never been happier – individually and together. Bring on the next year and more incredible moments like these! I love you, you crazy kid. x

  1. Not sweating all the time. I can’t even tell you how happy this makes me.
  2. Cups of tea, all day, everyday
  3. Being able to exercise at any time of the day
  4. Incorporating jeans back into my wardrobe
  5. Raining days spent inside on a cozy couch
  6. The promise of better mountain biking conditions
  7. It’s not too hot for a glass of red, red wiiiiine
  8. Those gorgeous Autumn colours; oranges, earthy reds, soft browns.
  9. Crunching over leaves in parks
  10. Enjoying our last Perth sunset over the ocean.
