J's Bella Session and a weekend roundup

I just got back from holiday, well, not really, but it feels like it. I was feeling a little worn out so I took the seven year old and we headed to Victoria for a night. It was 30 hours away that left me feeling like I was gone for a week. We ate sushi (twice), grabbed a nice hotel room with a...
