Sorry about no post yesterday. I actually fell asleep sideways across my bed and didn’t wake up until this morning!

Reading:

I finished Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish by Grace Burrowes yesterday morning.

What a great read! Lady Sophia Wyndham has schemed to have some time alone before joining all of her family for Christmas. Of course this alone time flies out the window when she finds herself with a baby and a man as houseguests.

I love how Lady Sophia is a strong, capable and sensible character who also has honest emotions. She’s a complicated character who is realistic. Com Charpentier, our hero, is also multifaceted and who can resist a man who is capable with a baby?!?!

The background characters are also wonderful! I’ve always loved the Wyndham family with their scheming. They seem so high and mighty until one of their own needs a nudge to have a happy ending:)

Vim’s family is just as sweet in this book though. His aunt and uncle have schemed to get him back to the family seat and they are determined to help him have a happy ending.

The characters take centre stage in this book and make it a wonderful adventure to read.

Thank you to Grace Burrowes, the publisher and NetGalley for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I met up with two friends and we walked the seawall from downtown to Granville Island. This is just over 5km. We had lunch at a new spot on Granville Island called Poppino. It was good, but the only thing I was allowed was a cheeseburger without the cheese. Oh well, it was yummy and I was in a beautiful spot with great friends.

We looked around the market and the netloft but none of us bought anything.

As we were starting our walk home, we went by the water park and one of the ice cream places I follow on Instagram was there! I finally got to try Hello Sweets! I had really wanted to try their ice cream sandwich, but they were sold out so I had their most popular flavour of ice cream which is marshmallow. T was super yummy, but also super rich!!!! It’s definitely worth a tasting if you come across them.

After walking back, enjoying the sunshine I came home and fell asleep. Lol a nice day, but obviously not exciting enough to keep me awake!

Have fun!

      1. I just read on another gal’s blog that she went on a walk with her hubby and parents where her parents live. The end goal was a little patch of beach, but the mum couldn’t remember how far it was to the beach…5 hours later!! They made it lol

      2. Woah! That would be crazy! My brother did that to me the first time we did a hike together- he said it was about two hours, turned out to be about five and a half!

  1. fresh air will wear you out! And there is nothing wrong with a bit of extra sleep… never turn that down! Glad you had a fun day with your friends and got to try out the ice cream that you’ve wanted to try. Now you will have to find them again to try another flavor.

    1. That fresh air definitely did me in!
      I was happy to try the ice cream, It I found it too rich for me so don’t think I have to try any more.
