Happy New Year dear friends! I hope your year is filled with plenty of joy, fun and creativity!!
So 2017 is here and it’s time to focus. While 2016 was a year of tremendous growth both personally and for my family, I sort of lost my way in documenting and sharing the joys, accomplishments and struggles. While I try to savor the memories of good times and learn from experiences that were tough, I realize that keeping a record is a great way to reflect and improve. Onward with the new.
Speaking of new experiences, out here on the west coast we’ve gotten used to the grey, moody days that are typical of a Vancouver winter. This is a temperate rainforest after all! But this past December has been a first for us since we moved to Vancouver with all. the. snow!!!
We decided to brave the frigid outdoors and go for a walk on New Years Day. 10 minutes in and we were racing back to the car dreaming of piping hot soup. Now I get what the fuss wind chill is all about. Unless it’s absolutely essential to walk outside, you will find me in hibernation mode!
I’m seriously longing for milder temperatures and dare I say in a loud whisper… rain!
But really, the snow has made this winter feel magical and for the first time ever the Christmas songs we hear on repeat over the holidays have been true. Winter Wonderland? Check and check!
I made a few warm and cozy things over the holidays. They were quick, satisfying projects and kept my fingers toasty 🙂 I’ll share my makes soon.
Here’s to many magical moments this coming year for all of you ✸
