Vacations are all about indulging yourselves. When Tor and I made our plans to visit Canada for our second wedding reception, I knew having time to ourselves would be a bit limited. We usually stay in the heart of Whistler Village when we visit Whistler, but this time we chose to stay in the Upper Village at the Four Seasons.
I adore Whistler. Whistler is one of my favorite places to escape to. Tor first took me to Whistler less than a year into our relationship. I had been living in southern California and missed snow, so he took me to a snow-covered Whistler for Valentine’s Day. Since then, I’ve been in love with Whistler.
Fast forwarding a bit to our week in Vancouver. One thing my husband always raves about is Vancouver summers. He grew up there, so of course he is very familiar with their summers. I had only experienced a Vancouver summer once (we usually visit Vancouver every winter), and so I was eager to head up there again. It was a nice break from the triple digit heat ravaging Los Angeles. We packed our bags, we brought along our cats Renly and Daenerys, and we flew up to British Columbia, Canada.
There are three things I can’t get enough of in life – cats, donuts, and florals! And obviously my husband, so I guess that makes four things. But if you were to step into my home, you’d automatically know that I live there. Fresh flowers are abundant everywhere, and they’ve made their way into my closet.
Something that’s different about this summer from the last few summers is that we are actually getting to spend it in Los Angeles. For the last three years we have spent our summers in Canada, so it has been a real treat to finally enjoy a Southern California summer.
Summertime is all about being playful! From the parties to the vacations to the get-togethers, summer is all about fun. I try to emulate that as much as I can into my wardrobe.
