We did it! We left.

And, of course, we came back. Because if you don't come back, it's not so much a vacation as it is running away.

It wasn't anything crazy, but it was chill and sleepy and fun, with the exact right ratios of walking around to eating to sleeping to beaches to mountains to skyscrapers to parks to cozy little coffee shops and good conversations about pasts and futures and presents.  photo A8743DC1-D26F-470C-A629-AC13FD87F9D0-609-00000064DA00BE67_zps20b29b72.jpg  photo 67C6EBA5-6C4C-4ECE-9F5B-7EFD8BC363D4-609-00000064E4666D35_zps04685a33.jpg  photo 09BB0117-7943-42FF-818A-203B329FB0A5-609-00000064EEFA597E_zpse1ce074f.jpg Our hotel was right smack-dab in the centre of downtown Vancouver, so we walked everywhere (except for when we took the ferry). We walked to Granville Island, to Stanley Park, to Gastown, to Yaletown. We walked to restaurants and beaches and shopping centres and to the aquarium. And when we were too tired to walk, we didn't. That's our prerogative.  photo 49A09810-DA3F-4720-81E9-DA39C3A455EA-609-00000064FB11FD5B_zps8cb4b946.jpg  photo 96EA297B-4BE8-4D7C-84D2-3ADA20F0695B-609-0000006502D5EA3B_zps378411cf.jpg  photo 3483CB84-69C6-414B-919A-6D872F0DC2A2-609-0000006517735B8C_zps6ebf11c2.jpg  photo 4057C71B-30F0-4D30-93BB-3BC37F445D7B-609-00000065279A0135_zpsa07bc990.jpg  photo 498146BA-762F-4813-B921-F427F2C60CCE-609-000000652F2B2155_zpse092c263.jpg  photo 96DBC552-C5DA-42C8-A1DE-72AF78C24A21-609-000000653650140C_zps46b656c3.jpg  photo B1A2F8E0-4272-4EA7-B807-2238F6879FB6-609-0000006544E5D65B_zps40e63761.jpg  photo A475589A-8ACC-4E87-80EC-593503FD083B-609-000000654D52F263_zps0bed1b2e.jpg  photo F0626EA0-0748-4B00-B76E-99CBE9AE0958-609-000000655493F5BA_zps31d06a03.jpg  photo 79F9F0E1-1247-4417-8C9F-5E0E8D0E1D3F-609-000000655C5F4A0B_zps6159724b.jpg  photo 9FC01621-1B6C-4CBD-A91C-E59AAA6B2567-609-00000065724AB15D_zps814b622e.jpg  photo 4A2FCC27-A8F9-4B3B-83E9-5771D56F19E5-609-000000657959D946_zps71bda528.jpg This will most likely be our last trip just the two of us for quite a while. We talked about that a lot. I think this week was really us trying to push the pause button. Not stop, just pause. Because as exciting as the future is, it's coming awfully fast. And I really am enjoying the present.  photo CD24CD5C-FB5C-45CB-A2D0-82FB06D7CAF8-609-0000006580DA6BC2_zpsefcd3a0b.jpg  photo E9F5EE5E-2AD5-4382-87E2-09AE2A3115BF-609-000000658867A32A_zpsddc55d08.jpg  photo B5A384DA-ADDA-49F9-B54B-4B9E8D7AED17-609-0000006596C65A31_zps943be48d.jpg  photo 966BA9EA-7910-4971-9124-DA9252FC2CED-609-000000659D1274D0_zpsc3ea27d0.jpg  photo 4B9EA1FB-0317-48F7-AA2F-C1A8B16CEE5A-609-00000065A366A523_zpsd5545d4c.jpg  photo 83BEDB14-81C5-4DF3-8267-DD7B0D8BEFBD-609-00000065AAA1E226_zps3d11b034.jpg  photo B70CE085-4676-4D90-8B75-D43104A7A485-609-00000065CE4356F4_zpsbc479961.jpg  photo 15655004-416E-45EC-A0ED-0291BBC9E3B0-609-00000065B31EB8C8_zps19d8cd6c.jpg  photo 84A368CC-93EF-4096-B2AD-4D395DE23D43-609-00000065BA511B68_zps7b85a4a8.jpg  photo F4F4EAF3-A5AB-4874-A319-E0C4D509A01D-609-00000065C0DB1D89_zps5a5a7571.jpg  photo DF33ADAA-7BF7-439F-8A1C-F23386DEA55D-609-00000065C7E18179_zps62b9fad3.jpg Today, we are back to real life.
