blog hiatus.

Sweet friends, just a quick note to let you know I'm going to be taking a hiatus of sorts from this here blog. I've been blogging for over three years but have been hit by a lack of inspiration that feels like it's here to stay for a while. I hate to leave but I'd hate even more to drag my blog down with posts that aren't representative of me or what I've built here over the last three years. 
I will continue to be in the blogosphere because I can't walk away from all the fab friends and blogs I've found over the years. 
Thank you for reading. Thank you for your sweet comments.
 I hope to be back sooner rather than later.

smiling in chilly, rainy Vancouver!

After 14 hours and three cities of travel - I am now in sunny rainy Vancouver! I'm here for a work conference and hope I get a chance to get out a explore but chances are slim to none. At the very least I'll get a few good meals and would love any and all restaurant recommendations!
One tip for travel is to kill the concierge and/or check in clerk with kindness! It will usually get you something; an amazing room, free wifi, drink voucher, etc.  I had a long chat with 'Ben' about how I had never been to Vancouver, was so excited, blah blah, couldn't believe how cool and rainy it was, blah and sweet Ben said he would try and make up for the rain with a nice room. 
Did he ever! I have a corner room, one floor below the penthouse, where three of the four walls are windows that look out on the city and the ocean. 
No matter when you travel, but especially for work, you want to be comfortable in your room and boy am I ever! Thanks Bennie Boo! 

Happy Monday y'all!
