After spending seemingly endless minutes, hours, and days being sick, the gradual realization that your health is slowly improving is the most welcome and heartening news. Several days of agony were finally followed increased energy, a lesser sore throat, and a slightly increased ability to breathe over the nasal congestion. As a result, I was able to drag myself out for yet another nature walk (which will be chronicled in more depth in my next post), some food, some good company, and even some shopping. It was my birthday after all!
For my birthday, I started the day off with a delicious breakfast at Faubourg, some shopping at Park Royal, and an intrepid exploration of Cleveland Dam (and a bit of the Capilano Pacific Trail). I was even able to wrangle my fiancé into buying me this lovely sweater at Zara that was on sale for only $20 (down from $80). I ended up wearing it right out of the store because I hadn't dressed warm enough for the weather. Another birthday purchase was this lovely Wilfred blanket scarf from Aritzia-- I'd been drooling over them for a while now and finally felt justified in buying one when I was 1) sick, 2) almost 24 years old, and 3) had just been paid.
Also, I have no idea what happened to my hair in some of these pictures but I'm sure you can forgive a sick girl for looking less than perfect!

I hope you all had a most wonderful weekend and weren't as sick as I was. Also, I highly recommend getting some fresh air whenever possible as it does absolute wonders for the mind, body, and soul!
