Two of my favourite things in life are weekends and days off work. I love to work, but I think having a couple days off is an amazing way for me to let go, relax and stop thinking about all the negative things going on in the world.
It’s a time where I don’t wake up to my alarm (usually) and I can do whatever my little heart desires.
Lately, I have been trying to get out on my days off and really take in what Kelowna has to offer. I’ve been loving exploring the waterfront around the Okanagan. There’s a beautiful park downtown that has a ton of green space and a beach and I’ve been going there a lot. There’s also a smaller beach by my home, which I tend to go to when I don’t want to drive downtown.

Last weekend I went to the park downtown, read my book, listened to some boys play the guitar and honestly just smiled. I unplugged for several hours and it was so relaxing. After I sat in the park for awhile, I went to get an iced coffee at my favourite coffee shop Pulp Fiction and then headed to the beach.
When I was at the beach, I dug my toes into the sand and continued to read my book until the evening. I nodded on and off and had a short nap in the sand.
Living in beautiful British Columbia I feel the need to take advantage of the beaches around me. It’s a beautiful spot to read, relax and think about my goals and how I’m going to achieve them.
Life is good and I can’t wait to continue to explore Kelowna this summer.
PS: I would highly recommend the book I am currently reading. I found it at Value village and I honestly can’t put it down. It’s about a young female who travels to northern Canada to start her career as a journalist. Kinda reminds me of myself, except I didn’t go all the way to Yellowknife, just Thompson, Manitoba.
Better days are coming and they’re called Saturday and Sunday.
