July Long Weekend

July Long Weekend

I woke up early this morning remembering that I haven't blogged in awhile and feeling the desire to but also happy at the notion that life has been so full and I've been enjoying summer so much that I just haven't had the time.  Last weekend we spent 3 days in BC, at my family's cottage, with friends.  It was perfect.

2016 Christmas Tree Hunt

2016 Christmas Tree Hunt

Holiday tradition has become increasingly important to us over the last few years.  I think it's really important to establish our own way of doing Christmas as a family of three: to be intentional about how we spend each Christmas and make a point of doing things that are unique and memorable for us.  One of the traditions we began just after getting married was to go on a Christmas tree hunt.  We'd get up early, make coffee, bundle up, and pack ourselves and a good saw into the truck and head to the mountains.  It's become one of my favourite things about Christmas.  I look forward to it and plan it well before December gets crazy.  Our tradition has since evolved and each year we have included good friends in our hunt for the perfect tree.

Today we are still on weekend mode since it's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  I couldn't be happier about it either.  This weekend the weather decided fall is over and winter is here.  Although it all melts by the end of the day, each morning when we wake up the world is a winter wonderland.  Which means long lazy days in bed.  It's been glorious.  The only plans that the snow has squashed was going to the pumpkin patch today (no pun intended) ..who wants to go to a pumpkin patch in the snow? So, instead we will enjoy the slowness and hibernation that this weather brings.
