Summer in the City

This past weekend consisted of beaching, brunching, and BBQ-ing, as well as the Pride Parade (hence the rainbow nails). Not to mention the fact that I was in a particularly celebratory mood because remember those pesky Bar Exams I recently wrote? Well, I passed!!

I'm also gearing up for a big move at the end of this month... to Calgary, Alberta! It's only till the end of the year but I'm both nervous and excited since I've never been to Calgary before. If you guys have any tips for things I should do/see while I'm living there, let me know. And since there is really nothing better than summer in Vancouver, I'm hoping to soak in as much as I can before I leave. I will miss this city so much!

  9. Yaaay that's fantastic! Congrats lady! :-) Looks like you've celebrated well this weekend. I've only been to Calgary once (for 1.5 day), so I can't really help you out, but I am sure you'll have a lovely time. (hopefully they'll have afternoon zumba classes there haha!)
