So I originally requested to start my full time job on June 6th but got pushed back all the way to July 26th which in a way was actually a blessing. It gave me time to get to go on two trips that were far and awesome! The trip I went on the weekend before I started work was to Toronto with my parents! We started out by flying into Toronto and driving to Niagara Falls. Guys, it’s true, the Canada side really is more beautiful (and way bigger). The next day, we drove to Toronto and explored the city! I loved how large and urban this whole city was! Canadian cities have a certain beauty to them because you can see the European influence on certain structures as well as unique clean Canadian designs! I definitely feel very lucky to get to Canada two times within a month! (See my previous post about Victoria, BC, Canada here.) See where I went in Toronto below!

I can finally knock Canada off my list of countries I’ve never been to! My parents & I took a cross country road trip (I’m covering it in a future post) from Atlanta to Seattle & stopped in Victoria, British Columbia on our second to last day! Victoria is SUCH a beautiful city! It was great to tour the English styled buildings, walk by the harbor, & take pictures in front of all the flowers (Victoria is known as the city of gardens). On our second day in Victoria, we went to the Butchart Gardens & were blown away by the amount of blooms there! I loved that they had so many separate gardens (Japanese garden, Italian garden, rose garden, etc.) Definitely recommend checking out this place if you’re ever here! For my outfit I wanted to go with plain patterned clothing since I knew we were going to be surrounded by so many colorful flowers! Every piece I’m wearing is a big staple in my wardrobe! I felt so confident in this outfit!thumb_DSC03487_1024 Continue reading
