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!
