Skipping Fall

BeautyAgain-0633

A few weeks ago Rye and I headed into the mountains to get some more coveted shots of Moraine Lake before they close the road for the year. To our surprise, there was already a plethora of snow blanketing the roads and the mountains. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the mountains in the snow (it is probably one of the most beautiful sites there is and also so iconically Canadian), but it is not a site I want to see in mid-September. Is anyone else as sad as I am about the sudden end of summer?

All Puffed Up

I am happy to say that I can finally see the end of winter in sight. And while the days are slowly getting a litter bit warmer and a little bit longer, I have been able to enjoy the tail end of the season (better late then never right). I never thought I would be one to enjoy owning a puffer coat (yes you’re hearing that right and from a Canadian at that), but this one has been a godsend for me. I “borrowed” it from my Mom’s closet in early January and it was the greatest item I used/owned this winter season. Now don’t get me wrong, I am still looking forward to finally shoving it back into the closet for the year, though I don’t think I will return it to her anytime soon, sorry Momoo.

Winter Blues

I am a fan of summer, I do not think there is a person in this world who will dispute that. My friend and I used to spend our University study sessions joking around how we were island girls and the cold was just not for us (this was done with a coffee in hand staring at the massive snow piles). This year, I am back in Calgary for the first full winter in years and without a trip to somewhere warm at that. Previously, I was away at school in Vancouver and before that in Nova Scotia, so the extreme cold was something both myself and my body forgot about completely.
