I stayed late at work this afternoon. A lot late.
And as I rode the Skytrain home, with a familiar twinge of pain returning to my neck, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit blue. Okay, I’ll admit it. I kind of felt sorry for myself. That’s when I checked into Instagram. Sure a lot of times it’s filled with nonsense, way too many selfies, and pictures of food. But once in a while, you find something that inspires you.
Browsing inspiration pictures was just what I needed this afternoon — it was just the kick in the pants that I was looking for!

Question: What exciting things do you have going on this week? I’m looking forward to spending quality time with the Husband after a busy couple of weeks for the both of us! He’s my lobster and I heart him!
Back when I lived in Europe, I often heard people talk about taking city breaks. That terms was totally foreign to me but I understood it meant taking a quick getaway to an easily accessible nearby city. Within the European context, that often meant a quick trip to Paris or London.
Now that I live in Vancouver, I’ve become a huge fan of city breaks; mostly because they’re particularly well suited to our busy schedules (where our days off don’t always line up). Of course, given our location one of my favourite places to take a city break is Victoria, British Columbia. There’s something about taking the ferry over to the Island, the relaxed pace of life, and the beautiful sights that always makes me feel so regenerated after a getaway to Victoria.
Question: Are you a fan of city breaks? What is your favourite destination for a quick weekend getaway? Do you have any city breaks coming up? I will be heading to Portland (for Fitbloggin’ 13) at the end of June, and I can’t wait!!!!!
