Hello there and welcome to my Lifestyle Blog!
I created this blog as a creative outlet for myself but also as a way to document our life and have fun while doing it!
My name is Gabriela, but Gabby for short and I work in the beautiful city of Victoria, British Columbia. My husband Adam and I are originally from the Toronto Area in Ontario but in December of 2018 we found out that our first military posting was going to be Vancouver Island and have been living here since January of 2019 when we made the 9 day drive over (I have a blog post on that story)!
On the professional side, I have an Undergraduate Degree in Psychology from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario. After University, I started working as a Legal Assistant at Franklin Law Firm followed by TD Insurance in Toronto, Ontario. My last position before our relocation to the island was as an Executive Assistant in Human Resources with TD Bank Group. Currently I work at the University of Victoria as the Department Secretary/ Assistant to the Chair of the Computer Science Department.
Being an only child and having moved to Canada from Romania when I was only 11 years of age, my family would be described as small- myself, my husband Adam and our doggo of 2 years old, Gunner Mason Comeau. Some of his nicknames include: the floof, pupparoni, little man and Gunther. We actually adopted him from the SPCA in Nanaimo, BC on my 26th Birthday!
Some of our hobbies as a family include: finding new trails that are dog friendly to hike, going to the beach, looonnng walks, biking, camping, golfing, skiing, crafting/diy projects, cooking amazing meals together and of course my favorite LOTS of baking!
I created this blog in February 2018 as a creative outlet to share my passion for decor, baking, family and travel! My mission is to inspire others with my content and to help lead a positive fun filled life!
One of the things I always catch myself saying is:
"There's always a nicer way of saying or doing things"
