Yoga on Bowen: Returning to Nectar Yoga B&B (+ Why You Should Go)

Girls yoga getaway at Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island

What a difference a year makes. 

It’s been a year since I started running. A year of reflection. Of change. 

So much has happened since the last time I visited Bowen Island and Nectar Yoga B&B that it was like an out of body experience returning last month. Remembering how I felt when we were there last year and being present during our recent visit made it feel like time was running parallel. Retracing the same steps I’d taken before, walking into the beautiful cabin and yoga dome, reliving the emotions from a year ago while appreciating the way I now felt… View Post

Slow Cooker Apple Cider

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Recipe

Happy November 1st! We’re officially into that time of year between Halloween and Christmas and I feel like the word that covers it all is C O Z Y. And what better for cozy days spent curled up indoors with lots of blankets or for a walk in the crisp air than apple cider? Yummmmmm. I think the first time I made this was on top of the stove but for the past few years I’ve been making it in the slow cooker so it can sit on my counter and I don’t have to think about it. Also: it makes your house smell amazing! View Post

We live in a 70s house, so there are plenty of projects and updates to choose from, but until this Fall we hadn’t given any attention to our room (the kids have the best rooms in the house!).

So first up was a fresh coat of paint followed by the addition of some wall decals for an accent wall.  View Post

{Recipe} Roast Zucchini Crust Pizza

Zucchini Pizza Recipe

This is one of those recipes that takes a favourite comfort food- pizza!- and puts a healthy spin on it. Swapping out a traditional crust for slices of zucchini makes for a lighter and more nutritious option without missing out on this meal time fave. Over the Summer we were picking them fresh out of the garden and I could barely keep up with them, so getting a little creative was the result. I shared about these on Instagram Stories the night I made them and they were such a hit that I wanted to post them here on OHP. View Post
