lifeisgoodFLOWERSEverything has been too good lately. John and I did the big move over a week ago, and couldn’t be more thrilled with the upgrade to our new house. We hosted both sets of parents this weekend, and enjoyed sitting in the sun on¬†the brand new patio furniture, and dreamed up recipes for the newly acquired BBQ (many inspired by a gifted cookbook & its feature beer can chicken). Sunday, we watched John play softball, while eating a picnic dinner that consisted of our fresh catch from the Columbia River in an amazing cold bean salad. I found a bit of time between innings and taught my little cousins how to draw owls! The weather in the Kootenays has been ridiculous… hello summer! With all this sunshine, I can’t wait to get on our beautiful bikes and cruise around the new neighbourhood. Yesterday, I started a new part-time job, working for a dragon; After two happily engaged years, my beau and I have been finally talking plans about the wedding, the prospect of owning our own home, and maybe someday even raising a family… all of these things require money! We have been doing well for ourselves, considering we’re both chasing careers that are fueled mostly by passion, but the prospect of saving up for a brighter future has me excited to also put in some work away from the studio.¬† I’ve also been continuing to paint under the open sky, as you can see above, adding to my adventures with watercolours. Life is good these days.

This edition of too good tuesday is being taken over completely by one event; the best bike ride of the year (so far)! Sunday Funday yielded some fantastic sunny weather and marked the first meet up for the kootenay cruiser gang. 5 friends and myself loaded up our beauties and took a short drive to South Slocan to ride the rail trails.

This right here is why I ride a bike, and why I’m friends with nature.

What’s been too good to you lately?

Screen Shot 2013-05-14 at 9.35.14 AMThis was too good to me today, and it’s the only thing I feel like celebrating right now. I woke up feeling awful (mostly due to recent stress and sickness), so I decided to take a rare day off of working out early, to catch some more well-needed z’s. I awoke exactly 3 hours later; good things come in threes. Sometimes it is the simplest things that can make us the happiest.
