I know I’ve told you this before but I LOVE this time of year!! I’m in love with the chilly air, the cozy sweaters, the comfy nights in … I love how I can now have our fireplace on and a bunch of candles lit, and swapping the rose out for red wine. Fall is a pretty relaxing time of year, especially after the hustle and bustle of summer! So far we’ve had an amazing fall, I went apple and pumpkin picking with Leo, we had our Vegan Thanksgiving dinner with my family … and I even had an impromptu October pool party with the girls … pretty perfect. However, I’m BEYOND excited about this winter and I’ve been thinking lots about my winter bucket list because there are going to be so many firsts with Leo!!
Okay, let’s dig right into this!! Here we go …
Cozy Nights In
I just envision snow falling outside our window, the fireplace on and watching Christmas movies cuddled up with my boys under a ton of blankets, with goodies and hot chocolate or mayyyybe a glass of wine … just maybe … 😜
Build a Snowman with Leo
It’s our very first winter in our new home and I couldn’t be more eager to get out in our snow-covered yard and roll up a big ‘ol snowman with Leo!!
Tobogganing with Leo
Eeeeppp!! I remember tobogganing ALL THE TIME when I was younger! Nothing beats a good hill and some fresh air on a wintery day!! I could do without the walk back UP the hill … but I don’t think Leo will mind. LOL.
Last year we took Leo to see Santa in the CUTEST little cabin ever but he was so young that he didn’t really understand what was happening, while he is still pretty young it will be fun to see what exactly his reaction is this year and every year after that!!
I know Justin is really excited to get Leo out on the hill on a snowboard … but that’s not really my thing … but ice skating, on the other hand, now that’s more my jam … and Leo and I can both use the little helper thing … you know what I’m talking about … right?? LOL.
Go to a Christmas Market
I loooove everything about Christmas Markets!! From the mulled wine to the handmade gifts and Christmas carols! They are simply the best!!
Since taking a break from Love It Or List It Vancouver, I’ve been enjoying the new house and summer and have been sort of a hermit so this fall and winter we have trips planned to Mexico, Hawaii, and Europe to visit Sammy, Dustin, and Hayden … I’m so excited to start exploring again!
Spending Time with Family
I’m really looking forward to the winter months as they give everyone the same chance to slow down and spend more time together!! I REALLY want to make sure I hang out at Grandma’s more this year!
Give Back to a Charity
Every year around Christmas I like to round up a bunch of donations and give back to the Kelowna Food Bank, it makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside knowing I can bring a little cheer to families who need it most!
Get Back to the Gym
No explanation needed here … lol!!
