Whistler in the Summer

We have been so lucky this summer to take not one, but two beautiful get-aways.  In July, we went to Orcas Island for a night and this month, we got to go to Whistler, BC for three days.  We were there in April for my spring break and the last of the ski season.  It is amazing how much everything changed in four months.  Everything was green and blooming on the mountains, with just a little bit of snow lingering at the very tops.  We took the gondola to the top and followed a little trail down to Harmony Lake.  Then we took the Peak to Peak gondola across to Blackcomb and took the lift down.  It was breathtaking!  I loved riding the lift with no bulky ski gear and warm sunshine and wildflowers all around.  So pretty.

We went up to Pemberton for a trail ride.  We loved our horses, Babe and Honey!  It was such a hot day, so the best part of the ride was taking the horses through the river where they could get a cool drink and wade up to their bellies.  Our feet got wet, but it felt so nice!  The only downside is that we got eaten alive by mosquitos.


We love Whistler!  It was nice to walk around the village and eat at some great restaurants (Village Sushi is our favorite!) And of course, our tradition is getting a candy apple from the chocolate shop to share.  Yum.  It was so nice to spend time together and enjoy beautiful Whistler.

Four Years

I love this day!  It's our anniversary.  Four years ago I was getting ready to walk down the aisle to marry this sexy hunk:
Matt, I love you!  Our life together has been the best adventure so far and I can't wait to see what the future holds.  I'm so glad I have you by my side!

Orcas Island

It's summer!  I'm blogging again :)  This week Matt and I got to take a little mini-vacation to the San Juan Islands.  We really are lucky to live so close to such an amazing place.  We took the ferry to Orcas Island and stayed at the Rosario.  It was beautiful.  Such a fun trip!  We only stayed one night, but it was relaxing and so much fun.  I hope we get to go back soon!

Mt. Constitution in Moran State Park.  Erika - you were right, it is amazing!

Coming home - wish it were longer!
