Merry Christmas

We had a lovely Christmas. We visited Grandparents and ate lots of food. I Skyped home (twice!) and watched brothers and sisters dig into stockings and unwrap presents. There were Archie comics and Christmas oranges and scratch tickets, TMNT shells and Iron Man aprons and new boots and winter jackets. My dad sat down and walked me through some new updates for my laptop (OS X Mavericks is now mine) and it’s ready to face the new year.  I got dressed up and got to hold babies and eat as much chocolate as I could stand. I (finally) put the Christmas cards I’ve had waiting for a week in the mail and watched Christmas movies. And I hope you all had a very merry Christmas with loved ones and favourite people and those you care about.

Things I’m Loving:

+ This cheesecake - (How delicious does that look?!)
+ Salted Caramel Eggnog Pancakes - (Two of my favourite things in this recipe!)
+ Mulled Apple Cider – (My favourite drink of the Christmas season!)
+ Some giveaways to enter - (Because: free things!)

Which is slightly ironic considering it was sort of along the lines of, “The things on my blog are not entirely my real life,”/”Life is not perfect,”/etc., which is basically stuff I know you guys already know.

After sight-seeing in Lund,  Agneta and I went to Malmö with her daughter, Niki and her boyfriend, Martin. Originally it was supposed to be a day trip (plus I had a list of things I wanted to see), but the weather was super gross and it was  a Sunday, so it was decided we’d go in the early afternoon instead, about an hour before kick off.  Continue reading

Oh, The Places I’ve Been

IMG_7183

Before I left France, I mailed a box home to my family. Inside this box were a number of things: letters from friends, postcards and coins I’d collected during my travels, a Ramos kit I wanted my brothers to have,  a carry on bag I was returning to my family because I’m thoughtful like that, that map of France I’d pinned places on and, finally, a scrapbook that I’d made of all the places I’d gone and things I’d done since I’d left Canada. I waited. And waited. AND WAITED. for them to get this box because I just wanted all the praise of a job well done. Unfortunately…. Continue reading
