Today is a statutory holiday in our province as we celebrate BC Day; a day to celebrate the beautiful place we’re so thankful to call home! It seems like the perfect day to share photos of one of the many amazing places in my province. My husband and I took advantage of the long weekend and went on a mini road trip to a region of BC called the Okanagan; it’s a beautiful region known for it’s hot summers, world class wineries and massive lakes. Growing up it was a popular getaway from the city for my family and I have fond memories of summers spent swimming in the numerous lakes and tanning on the beach.

When I met my husband, the Okanagan was a natural choice for our first summer getaway and it soon became a yearly trip for us. This weekend we decided to drive up through the beautiful mountains and grab some delicious Okanagan fruit to bring home! The weather was less than ideal (a total understatement), as we experienced every type of weather possible except snow! It definitely made for an eventful trip, but sadly my photos don’t do the region justice…but then again that’s what living in BC is all about. I hope you enjoy this little slice of beautiful BC!
