When Jake and I were planning our wedding, we made the decision to postpone our honeymoon and not take it directly after the big day. We made this decision because it would give us time to save for a better, bigger trip and because Jake was still in school for his apprenticeship at that point so we wanted to wait until he finished. (And I recommend this option to anyone that will listen because it made the post-wedding blues much easier to handle!) So, on June 16, 2019 we headed out for our greatest adventure – our Thailand honeymoon!
Well, I am finally settling back into normal routine and normal life since the wedding! Jake and I got married on Saturday, September 29 this year and it was beyond amazing (don’t worry, a blog post about the whole thing is coming up soon!) but also beyond exhausting. Jake and I took the Thursday and Friday before and the Monday after off of work to prepare and recuperate, then worked the following Tuesday to Thursday. And after working that Tuesday to Thursday, I totally understand why people take honeymoons right after their wedding now!
But Jake and I had too many fun adventures throughout 2017 that took up all our vacation time, so we opted to do a “mini-honeymoon” on the weekend after the wedding and will do a full honeymoon next year!
Jake and I recently had the most amazing opportunity to travel to England with his family. The main reason for the trip was to celebrate our dear family friend’s wedding on the Saturday, but we decided to also extend the trip into the week after to do some exploring together. It was a jam-packed, adventurous, exciting, tiring and wonderful experience that I miss dearly already!
It may just be St. Patrick’s Day today, but I feel like I’m all Irish’ed out from my celebrations this past Sunday, March 12. No, I am not referring to an epic party of some sort. I am referring to the 5K I took part in.
Don’t worry, you read that right, no one has taken over my blog without me knowing… I participated for the Huntington Society of Canada, my new job. And like always, I dragged Jake with me.
This past weekend I finally took my first trip to Niagara Falls (that I can remember at least) thanks to my amazing parents. They gave me the trip as a graduation present so Jake, my Mom, my Dad and I packed our bags, met at a car pool and were on our way to The Falls.
Although I have only been living in the Kitchener-Waterloo area for just over one month, I recently had the opportunity to be the expert on the area when touring around with my friend from back home, Melissa.
Lately, I have been trying my hand at being self employed. Although I am still working at Reid’s Dairy, I am also trying to get into the Public Relations Field as I wait for graduation and while I put feelers out at companies, I am doing some independent work. One of my independent jobs, is for Bay of Quinte Tourism’s upcoming Antiques Trail. So today, I was getting paid to shop for antiques.
After 14 weeks of placement and two jobs, I was ready for a much needed vacation. So my sister, Jake and I packed our bags and headed to Ottawa.
It is no secret that Jake loves his beer and subsequently, I have found a love for the beverage myself. So where do you take a devoted beer lover? Well, to Toronto’s Festival of Beer of course!
Yet another adventure has come and gone this past weekend for myself and Jake, but this time, it was not an area we have ever thought of exploring. We went to Waterloo.
