Just a few of many glorious moments from our Glamping (glamour camping) trip to Okanagan Lake! I can't emphasize enough how great it was to get out of the city with some rad ladies, delicious food, sunshine and thrifting magic. We ended up going to the same campsite Jb and I went to a few years back except we had the most PRIME CAMPSITE EVER - all secluded and right on the water. We woke up both mornings to an incredibly pristine lake and lots of sun. Perfection.
If you follow me on Instagram (@lionheartvintage) you would know that we also managed to get in two excellent thrifting excursions in Summerland and Peachland. The Peachland excursion was complete chance - we just happened upon a rummage sale in a church basement. Two for one clothing! As I remembered from our last trip to the Okanagan, there were so many excellent granny clothes to snatch up and all at a super low price. Plus my friends Yvonne and Amanda snagged tons of mason jars for really cheap too. I love small town thrifting!
As I get older, I have grown to appreciate my Lady Time so much. Bonding with other women, sharing our stories and experiences, eating and laughing together, being greasy and gross, learning to take some things less seriously and realizing the importance of other things is SO AMAZING. I know that this kind of group lady time can be less common in many women's lives - I think due to the fact that we are socialized from a young age to compete against each other or to judge and police each other (and ourselves). Every time I have the pleasure of spending time with a group of women I realize the awesome spectrum of experiences, stories, bodies, aspirations and passions that are often hiding under the surface. Needless to say, I highly recommend taking a similar trip. Let's all lady bond post-haste! ^_^
More photos to come soon. We staged a sweet Moonrise Kingdom photo that I can't wait to show y'all.
