Vancouver Town

Writing to you from freezing cold Vancouver where I  am loving wearing my jacket after the hot Melbourne weather.

Not sure I have accepted that I no longer work for my company, I have been more excited about a long weekend in the past and now all of a sudden I don't work there anymore and it hasn't sunk in. Of course now I miss all the girls I work with desperately and want to call them and see what is happening over the last 24 hours.

AJ took a photo of me on my last day of work wearing casual clothes for the first time ever, which is so unlike me at work. So this is me trying to be casual for work...

Then this is AJ and me on the Auckland - Vancouver leg of our trip...

This is now me at my brother and his girlfriend's place in Vancouver tonight after some wine and Wii tonight. I have come over with a bad cold and look like I am on my death bed, which always happens when I leave a job or go on holidays, so I'm not surprised, but I look freaking awful. I hope I get myself together soon and realise my life is about more than work.


  1. Wow - you look seriously great - and love the scarf you're wearing on the plane.
    It's all happening now! How exciting.

  2. Looks as though I re-entered the world of blogging at the right time.

    First you look just FAB and secondly, hope you have a WONDERFUL time on your new adventure.

    Can't wait to hear more!!!

  3. You look so happy Tully. I love your photos especially the plane one, you look like a movie star :)

  4. You look really great, stylish and ready to take on the world. Have a great time on your trip and I hope you get over your cold soon.

  5. Enjoy our first day of spring! (I'm just down the road a bit in Seattle).

  6. What a great plan for a wonderous 3 mos! You look fantastic btw and look smaller than 198lbs! I really enjoyed your year of the tiger post as well as I can very much relate. I am giving up my job to avoid moving for the job. Its a huge change and a huge lifestyle change and I have much apprehension mixed with moments of clarity as you put it. The line about remember what is most meaningful in life - resonates with me as I'm doing this in order to spend more time with my kids and live life at home for about a year before I go looking for a new job. Anyway - I think you're doing a brave and wonderful thing that only great things will result from it! And enjoy the adventure!!

  7. LOL you do look like a movie star on the plane!!!

    Give yourself a week or so to adjust.......after 2 weeks or so when you'd normally be going back to work it will sink in & I recon you'll feel freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :0)

  8. You look gorgeous and ready to take on this next exciting phase of your life. I don't know you, but I feel such a sense of pride in watching what you have done...the decision to drop the weight and now to travel. You are a fine example of how to live life to its fullest.

  9. I don't think i've ever seen you take a bad photo! Remember Tully, one door closes, another one opens, have a fabulous time.

  10. Very pretty lady! have fun in my fave city x

  11. I second the movie star comment.

    Sorry to hear you have a cold. I hope by now you're feeling on top of the world and having a blast.

    You seriously look absolutely amazing!


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
