{bits & pieces: my life lately}

Happy mid-week! As I had mentioned last week, I wanted to post a few photos of my staycation! It was a perfect week to be off work - we had some summer-like days here in Vancouver, and we managed to visit some of our favorite spots. It was so much fun playing tourists in our own beautiful city!

We took tons of walks around our neighbourhood - and I snapped a few iPhone photos of my favorite house - I always stop and take in all the details when walking by. The landscaping alone is meticulous, but I think one of the details I love most is the strip of black trim around all of the windows. Oh, and the uber charming awning of course:

We did a lot of eating. A LOT. Why does that always seem to go hand in hand with vacations? One of our favorite spots in the city is Meat & Bread. Perfect name, clean branding, and amazing sandwiches!

We got a few pretty shots of the city in all of it's sunny glory! Just below is a view from Granville Island {taken only with an iPhone, I'm proud of that, lol!}:

And English Bay was looking fabulous trimmed in tulips:

We had high tea at Soirette; a definite highlight! Aren't macarons the most photogenic food?

It was a great week! And if you've been following on instagram, you may have noticed that last week hubby & I began working on a little succulent garden in our backyard, we got some pretty pots yesterday and once we've completed it I will definitely show you the finished product, so stay tuned!

There are so many pretty homes in your neighbourhood. When I worked down the street, I always had to stop and look. Love how the owners have taken a 20 yr old home and made it look so classic and updated! I think a staycation sounds perfect! Need to hit Meat and Bread with my family!
