December 01, 2014

I’m back from an unplanned blog hiatus because November was a pretty hectic month. There were lots of ups and downs which didn’t leave much time for writing and I can’t believe today is December 1st. The beginning of the last month of 2014 and one month until my birthday! It seems unreal that the year is coming to a close and it’s been quite an adventurous one.

But before all that end of year nonsense we’ve got the most wonderful time of the year… Christmas! We usually head to Florida in December, but this year we will be staying in Canada and having the most Christmas Christmas ever 🙂

Recipe to come!

 

I love this time of year, spending time with friends and family, nights in front of the fireplace and of course holiday parties! We’re going to do as many fun holiday things as we can this year, so if you have suggestions on things to do, then leave a comment.

My best friend is feeling better 🙂

My sister and I went to the Markham Santa Claus Parade on Saturday with our parents and some old family friends. It used to be an annual tradition when we were kids and it was pretty fun to gather at the big old house on Main St and cheer the parade along. There were some really great marching bands, talented gymnasts and dancers showing off their stuff and of course we go to see Santa!

Tonight Jason and I went out and got advent calendars so we can count down the days to Christmas. Mom has always gotten us kids advent calendars and it’s a tradition I love and will continue. I thought today that we should make them, but maybe for next year.

I hope you’ve all had a great year so far and I’m sending you light, love and some holiday cheer!
