Out With The Old

(JESSI's closetsequin top (similar)//booties//lipstick

Now that I've spent an entire day on the beach… these pictures look horrendously cold. But I do already miss home. Its hard when your heart is pulled in two different directions. Who can complain though when you spent a day in the sun, watched the sunset, ate dinner on rooftop, rode a ferris wheel…and all with some pretty handsome and good company. Not this girl. No complaints here. Except that my luggage didn't quite make the trip…Good thing I thought ahead and packed this amazing top in to my carry on. So I can still be a disco ball for New Years. Perfect. 

Anyways, it's almost twenty-fourteen. Which is insane since the other day I almost signed something with the date of twenty-twelve. So who knows where my brain is at.
But, as they say in yoga…. out with the old, in with the new.

Cali Bound

Leopard flats - check
Liquid leggings - check
Pink lipstick - check
No rest for the rad tee - check
Hat to hide travellers hair - check
….oh and luggage - check

This early A.M. I am off to ring in twenty-fourteen in sunny Cali with someone handsome. I'd say this will be a great start to a great new year. Toes in the sand, breathing in the sweet salty air, sounds of the ocean, skin not feeling like a dried up lizard. What more could a girl ask for? Oh a smokin' New Years kiss. Got that covered as well.

Catch you all on the flip side. I'm about to get my tan on and my party on.

The Day After

So who is completely exhausted from all the present opening, laughing, crying, talking, game playing, eating…oh the food that has gone on in this home is ridiculous. It's been amazing and beautiful and exhausting. It all goes by so fast. Too fast. And now the count down to next Christmas begins. Oh wait… you don't count right from the day after? Well I do. Maybe thats whats exhausting. But I love this season. Oh I love it.

Even though Christmas Day is over, the holidays, my friends, are not! Not that you need a good reason to dress up…but if you did, this is the perfect dress! I am so in love with it. You might want be tempted to add a sweater over top in this chilly weather BUT how could you once you see those shoulder details. Scrumptious.

This winter season is a fun one. I don't think I ever admit to it. Yet, it is. I'm having a blast. Only a few more days to soak it all in in this place I call home, with the people I adore most. So I'm off to win some more games and eat some more food…all in my stretchy pants…because I can't wear a dress all the time! Dang.

Merry Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Day from good ol' Canada!
That picture right there is a perfect example of a "prairie Christmas".  Snow on the ground but chinook wind a blowing so the snow doesn't stick around.
I often forget how beautiful this country is, until I am gone for a while and come back. It is beautiful. Or maybe its just the Christmas season and I'm feeling all sentimental. Either way I am SO grateful to be home for the holidays.

The last few years have been amazing with my family. I have grown so close to them and have learned to appreciate the time I have to spend with them. The Christmas season for me is all about family and remembering the reason to celebrate. My saviour and my family and all the ones I love and cherish. All the most important things in life.

So Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. Feliz Navidad. However you say it. However you celebrate it. However you feel it. I'm wishing it to you and yours. From chilly windy Canada. I'm thinking of you!

Oh Deer Its Almost Here

One more sleep and I will be home in Canada squeezing and kissing the cheeks of my loves. The face cheeks of course. Well maybe I'll throw a good butt cheek squeeze in there somewhere. Who knows. It's Christmas, anything can happen.

Four sleeps until I get to see my main man, main squeeze, baby G. 

Five sleeps until Christmas Day. Where we will eat scrumptious breakfast foods, watch a little boy open presents. Ok and open a few of our own. Then spend the rest of the day in our pj's drunk off love and sugary treats. 

This Christmas season has been a great one! Snow, lights, hot cocoa, fire places, snuggles. All good things. But it will REALLY feel like Christmas once I'm home home home. 

So Merry Almost Christmas all! I adore you.
