Hello everyone happy Friday. It’s hard to believe that it’s already Christmas Eve today and Christmas Day tomorrow. Where did this year go. I just finished wrapping all of the Christmas presents while listening to Christmas music. One of my favourite things to do during the holiday season. I thought I would take some time today to do some reflecting back on this year for my annual blog post that I do every year. The beginning of this year was pretty quiet nothing super exciting mainly just been working and trying to stay safe by not getting covid. Got to see some family in person and then also did lots of video calls with other family and friends this year. Matthew and I got to go to Tofino BC with his family for a few days in July. It was a nice little getaway and a much needed vacation that we all needed. It was my first time ever getting to go to Tofino and it was absolutely beautiful. If you want to know more about that trip I did a blog post back in July once we got home, so feel free to go read that blog post. An other thing that happened in July was that my parents got a new puppy named Remy. She is a Black Labrador Retriever. She’s been a great new addition for my parents. I got to stay over at my parents house to look after our family dog Gracie while they went up to trail BC to get her. Gracie is also a Black Labrador Retriever as well. I’m sure lots of you follow my instagram posts so you would see lots of pictures of them. Then in August we got to go away with my side of the family to Canim Lake for a few days it was so nice to have my nana join us as well. There’s more about that trip as well on my blog as well from a post that I did way back in August if you want to know more. September was a pretty good month. We added a new family member to our little family. Rickie has been a great addition. Matthew and I have never had a kitten before so we are both still learning. Rickie and Buttons are getting along pretty well now, but I have to say that it was a big adjustment for her having to share us with another cat around. Also at the end of September, We celebrated our third wedding anniversary this year. Throughout this year I have been able to go horseback riding and volunteer again at my riding stable, which has been really good for me to be able to get back out there to volunteer all of the riders that I get to help with their lessons makes me so happy. One thing this year that has been hard for me is I was really struggling with my depression more then usual, but I have found some new solution to help me feel a little bit better. Anyways that’s pretty much all that has happened for me this year. I am looking forward to having sometime with my family over the next week. I hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday season. Well that’s all for me until the new year. Looking forward to see what next year will bring.

Our first Family holiday card!
