Not going to lie. I’m one of those annoying Canadians that LOVE winter. There is just something about it that is so beautiful and wondrous that every year, I look forward to the first snowfall.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some aspects that drive me crazy. I have a pretty substantial commute to work, so snow usually means accidents, poor drivers and slow downs. I’m also not a huge fan of slush and gross snow and after awhile, I get pretty tired of the cold.
Aside from that, though, I HEART WINTER. I love that after a fresh blanketing of snow, everything just seems quiet and serene when you step outside. It’s like the world is on pause.
Due to my love of winter, I’ve decided to put together a list of things I want to do this winter to enjoy it to the fullest! I’ll be sure to come back and strike them out as they happen & add to the list if I think of anything!
