It’s hard to believe it’s May.
Heck, this time last year I was just getting settled in my new city. I had a casual cross-country journey in my Jetta with two cats, a dog, a Uhaul attached and a really handsome man. So, I just realized right now I’ve been in Alberta a year! Sheesh! Where does the time go?
Maybe I’ll do a blog post about how traveling with three animals in a car for a week made me realize I can truly conquer anything in this world. Ok, I’m totally kidding the animals were really easy and by New Brunswick, they straight up enjoyed the car #oldpros. I mean my dog Cam flew home with me from the Dominican, I’m pretty sure he can handle 50 hours in the car and a few hotels…Right?
And of course, I’m getting sidetracked as always. Did I mention I’m new to this blogging thing?
So TULIPS! The week before last I finally made my way to the Abbotsford Tulip Festival (Vancouver blog post to follow!). I used to live in British Columbia, so I have a lot of close friends there and I try to get there as much as I can. Now being only a province away the flights are a heck of a lot cheaper than flying from Halifax.
There is something about prancing around in a field full of tulips that makes my soul happy. It’s located about an hour outside of Vancouver but totally worth the drive. In my opinion, the Abbotsford Tulip Festival is the best way to celebrate spring. It’s been a long winter and this was my first official Alberta winter and I’m not quite sure I’ll ever get used to stepping outside and literally freezing your face off.
Don’t get me wrong I love Alberta but British Columbia is a place I’ll always hold near and dear to my heart. I’ve been dying to go to the tulip festival for awhile and I’m glad I finally made the trip, and it didn’t rain… YAY!
I brought my rain boots to Vancouver and thought I would be trendy and not wear them to the tulip festival. BIG MISTAKE… Although it was a gorgeous day the field was pretty darn muddy, bring your boots, friends. Side note: ruining my little brown boots was totally worth the views. Here are some photos of the beautiful tulip festival. Don’t worry, I didn’t add any of the photos with my mouth open and stringy mullet blowing in the wind.
Thanks so much for reading, have a lovely week!
