The Daily Grind // 2

This week has been one of those strange combinations of long to-do lists, long nights and some incredibly peaceful moments thrown into the middle of all the chaos. These are some of those quiet moments that I really cherished this week.

1/ Walking downtown with my boyfriend, we spotted this rad little reminder to stop and chill out on the sidewalk. 
2/ My new favorite store EVER. I spent an afternoon in the neighborhood last weekend and discovered this little spot. The flags outside, along with the wooden sign and white text were really the icing on the cake. 
3/ When I have a few minutes to spare in the morning, I try to snuggle up on the couch with a cup of tea and a magazine or book. I find that the rest of the day is so much more productive when I start things off this way. 
4/ My lunch the other day included a bowl of soup, and my two little dates for lunch. Frogs in the form of salt and pepper shakers :)
5/ Classes have begun, and as usual, I spent an inappropriate amount of time picking out my school supplies.
6/ The inside of the shop I mentioned above. Isn't it just the cutest? If you live in Vancouver you seriously have to make a trip to Deep Cove. A beautiful little place, and it also happens to have the coolest shop around. Check out the site here as well
7/ Racks upon racks of lovely fall attire in the Free People section of The Hudson's Bay downtown. 
8/ Making my rounds at the grocery store the other night.
9/ I have visited this pretty little courtyard downtown before, and I always love sipping my tea in here. The prettiest old building and an opening to the sky above. How cool would it be to live here?!
10/ Late night snacking while I worked this week. Baguettes and cheesy dips are so up my alley.
