Well, hello! Happy new year, and welcome to 2018! This is my first official blog post in the new year so I wanted to make it a special one and share one of my most favorite days. I spent my Christmas in my hometown, a small town in the West Kootenay area, and as much as I love Vancouver and being in the city, being at home and having a real winter for a little while made me the happiest girl in the world. There is something about not having snow on Christmas that really feels wrong to me. You can have your holiday beach vacations, but I will take my endless snow and skiing, thank you very much.
Not only was this Christmas special because I was able to spend it at home, but also because it was my first Christmas spent with my boyfriend, Brock. He is from the city, so enjoying time in the Kootenays in something that we are able to both really enjoy together. He may be a city kid, but I feel as though he has a small town heart, and let me tell you, I was overly excited to be a part of his first snowmobile ride, first time ice fishing and first time catching a fish (18 inches), first time snowshoeing, and his first time skiing in the Kootenays.
