The Holidays

Hello 2017!  I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years.  I decided not to post a blog for the last week of 2016 because I was between being home and heading to Montreal, and I decided to prioritize spending time with friends and family over worrying about what my next post was.

My Christmas was spent at my parent house, and I was lucky enough to get almost 4 days off.  It was so nice to be home for the holidays and not have to worry about driving home in any bad weather or trying to get back to town to go to work.  It was also great because my uncle was home from Alberta – whom I haven’t seen in a year and a half – so I got to see him most of my time home.

After Christmas, I jumped on a plane to Montreal to spend New Years with Shaugn and his family and friends.  Although our trip was cut a day short as we decided to drive home before the bad weather hit, it as a great time!  We spent New Years at his friend’s house, where we had a huge supper, and spent the night outside by the bonfire and driving snowmobiles around.  At midnight, we all popped some bubbly and set fireworks off.

While we were in Montreal, Shaugn and I did go on a tiny adventure to Sandy Beach to go for a hike through the woods and take some pictures.  The “tiny” adventure got even more exciting when we got the car stuck off the edge of the road…

Although no one ever really wants the holidays to be over, I am very excited to see what 2017 has in store!

The Holidays

Mont-Royal

Hmmm, what a surprise, another picture in a city that is not my own!  If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that traveling is my absolute favourite thing in the world.  This trip, Shaugn and I were able to surprise his friends and family, which was an absolute blast!  Although it was a quick trip (only three days), he still took me around to show me the touristy places, including the Mount Royal Lookout.  This lookout offers one of the most beautiful views of Montreal I’ve ever had!  On one side you have downtown Montreal, on the other you see the rest of the city, including the Olympic Stadium.  Definitely will be going back to explore this park again!

Also, funny side story, as we were walking up to the lookout, I was telling him how a friend of mine got engaged there this past winter, and how beautiful the pictures were with the snow falling and how gorgeous her ring was.  Shaugn stopped dead in his tracks, looked at me all serious-like, and said “I hope you’re not expecting that now!” Ha!  Luckily for him I was not expecting a proposal (and definitely will not be for quite some time), but it was pretty funny to see the fear in his face!
