Decorating Our Tree

It feels so fantastic to be back with a post. Yay! Blogging has definitley become a lot more fun, now that I've taken the pressure off myself... I've been carrying my camera around non-stop, and I just bought a diary so I can jot down future blog post ideas. It's been working like a charm! So... as you can tell by these photos, Christmas is in full swing at our home. Love it! I'm on a steady diet of hot chocolate + marshmallows, there's holiday music playing all day long and I've started bookmarking holiday recipes. I love planning and getting crafty for the holidays; it makes Christmas that much more fun & special for me.

This year, I'm also hoping to create some holiday traditions for Martin & I. Yearly rituals we can share with our kids, ahem, hopefully soon! ;) Do you guys have any holiday traditions you love to do?! I'd love to hear about them and get some ideas. One event we'd love to get out and see is Grouse Mountain's Peak of Christmas... there's a massive skating pond, real reindeer, sleigh rides, a Christmas choir, and it's all set against an alpine backdrop. Pretty stunning, right?! We'd also love to attend the nutcracker ballet this year, paired with a fancy dinner in the city. Can't wait! Alright, the Christmas countdown is ON. Food, time with friends & family... I'm pretty certain this is the best time of year!
