Sunny With a Chance of Laser Tag...

Vancouver has been showing off all of its summer glory these past few days. The weekend forecast shows more sunshine with a chance of hiking and laser tag. It's bound to be a good one!

I was washing dishes and dancing around in the kitchen last night to the song below. Paolo Nuntini has some kind of soul. Dad, I think you're going to like this one. 

Friday is here! Enjoy!

Tofino: A Weekend in the Rainforest...

This past weekend I packed up my car, grabbed a few friends, and headed to Vancouver Island for a Botanical Garden wedding in Tofino. This part of of the world is simply magical; the Pacific breeze, the rainforest trees, and the miles upon miles of running and hiking trails. We lodged at the Botanical Gardens; watched one of my favorite people tie the knot; and explored all the natural beauty that Tofino, Mears Island, and Ucluelet has to offer. This may very well be my absolute favorite wedding to date. It was an honor being a part of such a lovely celebration. Until next time, Tofino!

I've posted a little Mutual Benefit tune below.  I can't wait to see these fellas at Pitchfork. Less than one week until I am Midwest bound (!!)

Vancouver is a beauty today. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, America...

I awoke this morning (like every morning) resting on the pillow above. Ray Charles was singing the song below to me when my clock radio alarm went off at 6:00 am. America; I kind of love that place to pieces.

To Tofino I go. 

Happy Birthday, America! Enjoy!

Elfin Lakes...

Last weekend my good friend and fellow lab mate and I took a little trip up to Squamish to get in a nice lengthy day hike. We met up in the morning, had breakfast along the Sea to Sky, and hit the Elfin Lakes trail bright and early. The online hiking forums were not kidding when they said it was snowy. Stephanie and I had an absolutely grand time slogging through and taking in the beauty of this 22km trek. The hut near the lakes is definitely worth an overnight return trip later in the year. Mmm hmm...

I've posted the song below before, but this is just an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros kind of afternoon. 

Farewell, June. Enjoy!

Main on Main...

Hello again. I do hope you're having a fantastic week. I snapped the photo above this past Saturday while parading along the seashore with my lovely roommate Jessica.  It seems I've been going wide-open these last few weeks. This past weekend was a much needed rainy day retreat (not quite sheet-fort making weather, but you can't win them all)...

Needless to say, I'm feeling fully rejuvenated and am really excited to be playing a show with Ben Arsenault and Ghost Lights tomorrow night at Main on Main. I've posted a little video below from Ben's band Real Ponchos. These fellas are absolutely delightful. I'm looking forward to it, fellas!

Today seems like the perfect day for a little trail running. Enjoy!
