There’s something about hay bales that feels so Alberta…

I’m a lifelong Albertan but I am sad to admit that I have not visited much of our fair province. That all changed when I set out on a day trip to explore just what Alberta has to offer. There are so many cool little towns just south of Calgary to visit, many less than an hour away! That’s less time than it would take from to get from the N.W. of Tuscany down to the S.E. of Mahogany. Leaving the city traffic behind, my friend and I hit the highway View this Post

Find beauty and excitement in the air and all you have to do is look up! High River is host to the annual Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival. The event features balloons from all over Canada as well as international competitors from as far away as Lithuania and the United Kingdom.

Locals can watch the skies for the balloons as they complete their flights each day and evening (weather permitting of course). A great family event to take the View this Post

Hello Calgary! I’m so happy to be back home after a week-long vacation to Ontario to visit the bf’s family and friends. We had an awesome time taking in all the sights and sounds at many locations around the city, countryside, lakes, beach and more. It’s amazing how much is packed into Southern Ontario and we saw a lot of it during our trip.

I hope to get to a longer View this Post

Celebrating the #DirtyThirty, Las Vegas-style

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? I hit a milestone birthday this year and decided to celebrate with a girls trip down to Sin City. We had a great weekend of shopping, eating, pooltime and a big dose of Britney Spears! There’s always so much to do in Vegas that the fun doesn’t end, day or night.

Peak Trails: A Hike through Fullerton Loop

A mild winter + early spring = shoulder season hike! Fullerton Loop is a gentle trail that is great for families with wonderful views of the Elbow Valley. It’s a relatively easy hike (especially for non-hikers like myself).

The 2013 floods did some pretty big damage to the access trail. You used to park next to the river and walk underneath the Highway 66 bridge to get to the loop. Now you park on the other side of the highway closer to the Alberta Parks offices and follow the path to the Fullerton Loop trail View this Post
