BC’s Hidden Family Vacation Gem, Cozy Cabins

Cozy Cabins Family Vacation

Summer 2020 …  what a time. Having spent most of Spring in quarantine, a family vacation just might be (permanently) at the top of our wish list. With travel on pause for the foreseeable future, there isn’t a better time than now to appreciate, enjoy, and discover our own backyard. We wanted to find an amazing family vacation destination in our home province of British Columbia and were lucky to spend a week at Cozy Cabins Nature Resort. Tucked away in the Creighton Valley just outside of Lumby, BC, this family resort is truly one of a kind! Today I’m sharing why we love Cozy Cabins for the best family vacation.

Thank you to Cozy Cabins Nature Resort for hosting our stay! All opinions shared in this review post are my own.

Easter basket inspiration for kids

Are you looking for a little Easter basket inspiration? Or wondering how you’ll fill the baskets this year with our current social distancing measures? I’m excited to share some local Okanagan shops where you can get all your Easter basket goodies!

These local businesses are making it easy for you to safely shop, either with free delivery or curbside pick up options. (Check with each individual business for details). They have either temporarily closed their doors, or are home-based businesses that usually sell at markets. Please consider shopping local when you fill your Easter baskets and plan your Easter activities this year, it will go a long way in our local community!
