Here’s How to Have the Perfect Last Minute Romantic Getaway

When it comes to seeing Julio over the last year while living in Ottawa, I’ve had to get a little creative. From secret Via Rail tickets for the weekend to trips to Vancouver when the plane ticket price is right, it’s all about romance and making the effort for each other. While the long distance thing has been incredibly challenging, there’s something to be said about missing each other and the romance that it has rekindled in being apart. So on what I assume is the last last minute romantic getaway to Toronto of 2021, I thought I’d share how I plan to make him feel special when I head to Toronto this weekend.

The Most Fabulous Countdown to 2021 Awaits

With my routine of hitting up the gym three days of the week, a daily yoga practice, teaching 18 hours a week, running after a 5-year-old, and dancing around my house like Tom Cruise, I want to make sure I can continue with a modified version of my routine when I travel for a yoga conference.
