We packed up and hit the road for a road trip up to Vancouver for a bridal event at the Brock House. We spent our free time the day before doing what we love. Wandering the city, taking photos, and eating up all the delicious food this city has to offer. Funny thing is, for as much as Vancouver is known to be a foodie’s paradise, it took us a while to realize we got stuck in only going to our favorite Japanese restaurant, Guu, for dinner. We finally ventured out and found an amazing restaurant, Chambar, in Gastown (and had Guu for lunch instead :). Highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area! We were so in a trance with the cocktails, ambiance, and each other’s company that we forgot to look at the dinner menus for almost an hour. And this never happens, us being oinkers and all. Can’t get over how tasty everything was from a cocktail made with…wait for it…duck… fat. Yep, you heard that right and I’m still in awe of how one would come up with such a unique, creative mix. Ooh and the scallop was out of this world! It was probably a good thing we walked around the city all day before this calorie loaded meal.
Walking hand in hand on crisp fall days with golden leaves scattered around always brings me back to the first year we met. I love how it only takes a breeze, time of year, or smell to bring you back to a special time in your life. And I love that fall is all about layers so I made sure to bundle up. Except part of me is still clearly clinging on to the remnants of Summer since I wore a skirt but I did add tights to keep warm! Actually, don’t tell anyone but this is a skort. A skirt that is actually shorts. Kind of like a spork, a spoon and fork combo. (I secretly think it’s fun combining two words together, hence Jinda 🙂 I also added a chunky scarf I picked up at H&M during a recent weekend trip to Portland to keep warm and couldn’t stop raving about how cozy it was. I liked that it was a lot wider so it can double up as a small throw (which I took on our flight to San Francisco last week). Gotta love multi functional pieces! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!
