Beautiful Vancouver, B.C., Canada

hey everyone!
I'm now in
beautiful vancouver!!

I have just spent the last 24 hours on 3 separate airplanes.
I'm exhausted, but excited to be here.
I will be writing posts from this beautiful hometown of mine. 
But even more fantastic news!
I will be hosting guest posts from fabulous bloggers and
doing some interviews as well.
I'm excited and honoured that they will be on Rambles with Reese sharing their knowledge, wisdom and a bit of their life with you.


I've lived in different places around Canada and other parts of the world, and every time I return to Vancouver, something has changed.
Buildings have been torn down and replaced.
New Parks. New neighbourhoods. New boroughs.
New people.
I still call Vancouver my home, but I guess it's not my home...anymore.
Italy is now my home (geographically speaking).
But, I can't ever imagine saying that Vancouver is not my home.
Are any of you in a similar boat? Living in a different city or country?
Where do you call home? be honest, wherever I've lived, it's never been home
(other than Vancouver).
I never really knew why up until now. 

We all know the old saying, "home is where the heart is."
And my heart now is with my husband. 
I realize this sounds gushy, but I am grateful and thankful everyday that I am with the person I am meant to be with in this life. 
It has been an amazing journey getting here.
Now, it's an incredible and fantastic journey that we share together.
What are your thoughts on home?

Do you have any trips planned this summer?

p.s. if you have any things that you'd like to know about while I'm in Vancouver, please feel free to leave a comment or email me at


  1. 24 hours? 3 planes? Girl, You're a trooper!! Now go and have some fun!

  2. Enjoy darling and I call home my place here in Budapest but I also call home US and UK:) Its funny but most of my life we lived around the world....So...:)
    Have a wonderful time and see you soon:)
    Muah, sweetie

  3. Zaaaaaa!!!!!!
    I like your post... and i miss you sooooooooooo much :(

  4. I am in a similar situation. I live in England with my husband, but I still call Cincinnati home. I miss America a lot.

  5. I hope you are having a wonderful time! I have a couple places that I call my home, even though I have never actually lived there before, so I can kind of relate! I have never been to Vancouver. It looks beautiful though!

  6. You are such a globetrotter;-)
    Vancouver is so quaint and painterly. Enjoy your stay there and have a nice weekend;-)

  7. Reese, glad you made it! Have a blast doing all the familiar things and then come back and share it all with us! Can't wait to see your posts.

  8. lovely photos!!!!
    24hours+3planes sound too much!
    but i m sure it was worth it!!!

  9. If you stay away too long, even Vancouver will not feel like home anymore. You'll have a hole where home was, a deep longing for the place you grew up in. It's the price we pay for moving around.

  10. Hi Reese! Glad you made it there safe and sound! Be thinking about you!

  11. Enjoy your time there... it's really precious!

  12. I'm heading back to NJ (from San Diego) for the summer -- it's where I grew up. But what really makes it home for me is my boyfriend. I never understood how you could find home in a person until I met him. I'm still dying to visit Vancouver -- I was almost out there this past weekend for a conference, but I had to cancel my plans. Someday soon...

  13. Oh lucky you to have such a beautiful hometown! I adore Vancouver and have often thought of retiring there one day. Any place with that much beauty works for me :)

    Have a wonderful time honey!

  14. i haven't been to vancouver before!

  15. Hi Reese! So glad you stopped by!
    Have a wonderful trip! Looks beautiful~

  16. Enjoy your home ground Reese!!!
    Vancouver is very special, It was my home for a few months a life time ago. Have fun, soak up every second.

  17. A question:
    When youì'll came back to Italy will you write a post called:" Beautiful Bisceglie" :))))
    Signed: Boh?

  18. I hope you are having the BEST time Reese! This post is really sweet & I agree about home being where the heart is! I definitely feel the same way about my husband, too!

    This photo is gorgeous and I'm sure you'll always feel like Vancouver is your home in some way or another :) Enjoy your trip- you deserve it!

  19. And I thought a 13 hr plane ride to visit relatives in the Philippines was a lot!

    Never been to Vancouver, but I have been to Ottawa and Toronto. Wonderful cities. :)
