Only two more days in my 20s. 😱 I’ve been doing a lot of reflection this week, which is totally unlike me. I’m not a person to look back or reflect on the past. I tend to only look forward and search for opportunities in front of me.
But as I come to the close of a decade, it’s hard not to take time to look back on my 20s and think about how i’ve changed. It was a great decade of growing, learning, traveling, and opportunity. It was also a time of hurt, mistakes, heartbreak, and challenges. I don’t think I knew who I was, or wanted to be, as I entered my 20s and I definitely wandered through most of the past decade trying to figure it out 😂.
But as I enter my 30s I‘m confident in who I am and who I want to be. 💜Don’t get me wrong - I don’t have everything figured out. For as long as I can remember, that used to make me so stressed! But over the past few years, I’ve realized that life is more exciting when you don’t have everything planned and perfectly arranged. ☺️ I’m not supposed to have it all figured out. No one ever does, and that’s okay!
I used to think that 30 was old 😬. But now I’m honestly excited to enter this next decade of my life. A decade that will bring a whole new set of challenges and adventures, but a time where I plan to use everything I’ve learned over the past decade to further define who I want to be and the impact I want to have in the world. ✨
So cheers to a week of reflecting on life, making plans for the next decade, celebrating with friends and loved ones, and drinking a ton of amazing wines 🍷🍾🥂 #peaceout20s

Happy Thursday! Isn’t it scary that we’re already towards the end of summer? In many ways, I regret not making more of my summer despite Covid. I still could have gone to some hiking trails or more bike rides!
Couldn’t resist taking a photo on this butterfly chair in front of this beautiful tree. It’s one of my favourites! Kind of alludes to the coming of Fall, even though it was taken during the beginning of summer. What’s your favourite season? For me in Canada, it’d be the summer! Winter gets too cold and dry for my liking, not to mention horrible traffic with heavy snow😅
Ice caves in Switzerland ✨ One of our first stops during our past road trip has been this stunning ice cave at the Rhône Glacier 🙌🏼 The easy accessible grotto is located on 2300m above sea level just next to the famous Belvédère Hotel at Furkapass ☺️ It's pretty unique to walk though this immense glacier tunnel and we'll surely never forget this experience!

The ‘Cape’ also has tons of lighthouse along the shore, including the Nauset Lighthouse, which is popular to visit thanks to its iconic placement on @capecodchips bags! Head here after 4:30 pm to avoid crowds and parking fees!
Nothing quite like enjoying a cappuccino and a flaky, buttery croissant at a Parisian cafe 🥐 🇫🇷
While I can’t wait to get back to Europe one day, I’m planning a road trip in the US! Any guesses where? Hint: it’s on the West Coast!
I’ve been pretty offline the past week and a half because my phone randomly stopped working 😑 But I’m excited to see that Instagram launched the new Reels feature! I’m not totally sure what to think of it yet but I’m definitely going to play around with it 👏🏻 What are your thoughts on Reels?

Me enjoying the morning sun and thinking:⠀
What if my name was Sun, then the world would revolve around me and I would have a day named after me 🌞 that would be kind of cool... but it weren’t ꪑ𝓲ꪀ𝓽 to be. Well, at least my name is still everywhere 😂⠀
