Winter White...
and Emily's Give~a~Way!

There is something about wearing

Winter White...

For me, it has always been most

pleasing  to wear it in January.


It can be classic, romantic and soft,

~or~

young, jazzy and fun!

season's trend? 

~My favorite headband!~
 
~Or~

I would love to be wrapped up


in cozy colour!!!

Another free pattern from LB...
"The Directional Scarf"
***

This yarn is called "Amazing".

It's available in many color


spectrum's...I think it


could play well with


"The Directional Scarf" pattern...

At Christmas, my "Roomie"


at work...Rhonda,

made this "Amazing" pair of


fingerless mitts for me...

I am so lucky to have such


a talented and thoughtful friend!

After the hustle ~ bustle of the

Holidays...

A week long {Snow Day}

It's time to start menu planning and

packing for the trip... 

Our timeshare in Whistler BC



I am already looking forward to our

daily and nightly walks through the village.


The quaint shops

Christmas lights that we don't have to put up or take down.

The morning jaunts...

Clean, Crisp mountain air...

Strolling through the village in the snow.

Stopping to sip a cup of coffee,
hot chocolate or a hot toddie!
 ***
And my favorite establishment...
The Dubh Linn Gate
This photograph is currently on my screen saver
at work! ; - )

***

My entire side of the family makes the journey...

We have a blast!

 Some ski, some snowboard, and some zip line it!


We go inter-tubing, play board games, and work out!


There's hot tubbing, and swimming.


The girls also watch chick flicks and knit. 

We love shopping, baking

and cooking great meals!

Yes, we love to cook while on vacation!

***
My parents gave my brother Jon's family

and my family each a time share three years ago.

We have a yearly fee of about $900.00,

which is very reasonable for a week's vacation

 and the amenities we receive!

There are other timeshare locations

that we could travel to...but it's the beauty of

Whistler and the fact that it is only

 a 5 hour drive from home that keeps us returning.


My Mom and Dad on {The Wood Bridge}...
on the way to the Lower Village.
