Crazy and Fun Christmas Gifts!

I love Christmas! The holiday is over far too quickly and it makes me sad to see people commenting they are putting away Christmas on December 27 or 28th. But every one has there own preference. I just like these special things to last as long as possible.

We were so blessed at Christmas with wonderful thoughtful gifts. I just want to give you a quick snapshot of a few of the fun ones!

So James got a Chemex! Perfect for the coffee connoisseur that he is…


And Abby got a green and blue moose…

because every little dog needs a green moose with a blue beard for a friend!

I got some new Nova Scotia themed story books and Abby & I got sock monkeys!

He’s been curious for a long time what other creatures besides deer are lurking in our backyard  at night in the middle of town.

And the coolest thing…

I got a dumpling maker!

Lots of fun and thoughtful gifts this year!

What a difference a day makes as I sit here this morning blogging with my coffee blogging. Christmas Day and Boxing Day gorgeous warm temps and today everything is white and frozen, windy and cold! But the sky is blue and the sun shines!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
