our day on the farm

Hello friends! Before I jump in, a few updates for you! Firstly, I added a right hand sidebar to the blog, which I love, it adds a little more coziness -- don't you think?! Also, several of you asked if I'd be offering sidebar banner ads, after Tuesdays "fall banner program" launch. Happy to say, you ask, and you shall receive! Mini ads are priced at $10 (so affordable for bloggers & etsy shops) and medium ads are only $25. Fantastic, right?! Be sure to pop by my sponsor page and nab one today!

So yes, post! Last weekend, Martin & I woke up early, grabbed pumpkin spiced lattes (yay!) and ventured out to Pitt Meadows. It's about 20 minutes from our home, but since we were feeling adventurous, we drove further out and explored more of the farmland area -- well worth it! As you can see, it's beyond photogenic and you could hear crickets for miles. On our way home, we stopped for food at The Billy Miner Pub (it's historic & adorable), sat on the patio, took in the river views and devoured all the food! A vegan pizza for me, plus we split a massive, out of the oven brownie which was swimming in deliciously decadent double chocolate ice cream. Oh my, sooo not on the "clean eating plan" but totally worth it! Everyone needs a little splurge day here & there, right?!

As for the outfit? I was so excited to pull out the plaid, leggings and booties! Right now, I'm absolutely loving earth tones like: brown, green, plum and burnt orange. So pretty!! Plus a lovely change after living in neutral colours all summer... I must say my "capsule" tendencies might be going out the window for the new season too. Whoops! Fashion is just sooo good right now and I'm too weak to resist. Haha! I've been stocking up on adorable dresses, chunky knit cardigans, booties and ALL the floppy hats!! But hey, I'm just going with it, life is short and I want to have fun!
