Whistler, British Colombia

I am sitting here amongst the christmas chaos ~decorations strewn throughout the house,a fridge full of leftovers, one group of visitors gone and the next arriving shortly. I love living in a resort town, but it can be very hectic during the holiday season, especially a snowy one.

A sigh of relief though as I sit here quietly surrounded by family, great music,food and holiday cheer.  I am full to the brim with gratitude.

As busy as this season is, I love the excitement and energy that the holiday brings with it.

Feeling very content.

Inspired by…a walk on the wild side

Solvitur ambulanto ~ it is solved by walking.

I love to walk. It is one of my favorite pastimes.  It is rejuventing and refreshing. The body moves, the mind calms. Some of my best problem sovling comes when out for a walk.

You’ll find the answer as you go.

solvitur ambulando, cross country skiing, whistler, walking I have been hitting the trails for a good couple of hours daily. It has been a winter wonderland here in Whistler.We have had over 8 ft of snow alone in March, 4 ft of which fell last week. More snow is on its way….

I have mixed feelings about snow in March. The days are longer and the hope of Spring is in the air.I actually let myself daydream about long summer days. Something I would never allow myself to do in February! It is important to embrace the  weather here otherwise it makes for a very long cold winter.
