O, Canada

Monday, May 19

Good Monday morning to you all!

I'm pausing in the middle of some outfits + packing from my recent trip to share some general pictures and memories!

Mom & I flew into Edmonton on Monday night, Tuesday morning we headed to Banff via Calgary.

Here we are on top of the Calgary tower, Mom holding on for dear life!

Banff National Park, about 4 hours from Edmonton. You might recognize it from The Bachelor.

The surroundings were beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen that many huge snow covered mountains.

Wednesday we spent out and about; on a gondola, hiking around, exploring the lovely town of Banff.

Visiting the Hot Springs may have been my favorite part of the trip; being in that hot water was so nice.

Also really enjoyed taking some jumpy pics with my Mom. She cracks me up.

Thursday we headed to Jasper, via the Columbia Icefield and Glacier Skywalk. Dad loves the cold.

Here's the skywalk- a clear walkway that juts out into a canyon, it was awesome and nerve-wracking!

This is the Columbia Icefield- a glacier. It was freeeeezing out there.

We got to Jasper later that day where it was MUCH warmer.  photo IMG_5157_zpsef15dc21.jpg
We hiked through the Maligne Canyon- that was awesome and it was so nice outside.

Friday late morning we headed back to Edmonton, and went around the city a bit.
Saturday was spent visiting with (new!) friends & family, and eating A LOT.
Sunday we went to church before Mom & I flew back that afternoon! 

I always love visiting a new place, and I was really happy to spend time with my parents. Also loved getting to meet some new friends (most of whom I'm related to in some way..?) Canada really is beautiful and the people are very kind. 

I'll finish up this saga with one last outfit and how I packed for the trip!

Hope your week is off to a great start- gonna be another busy one over here! My weekend was really as chill as I planned so I'm still pooped, but it was a lot of fun. Hunter and I got into True Detective and naturally had to finish it- any fans out there?

Your parents are so adorable. So that's where you get it! ;)

I'm loving your wool coat. The color, the shape. Super flattering and versatile I'm sure! Is it warm in Nashville now to thaw you out?

thanks Lauren, they are pretty cute most of the time :)

I would SO recommend a coat from Old Navy! I got the extra small and it fits very tailored. yup, suuuper hot and humid in Nashville.
