I hope it was the best one yet :). It’s always a little sad when the best holiday of the year comes to an end! But as long as it was another memorable one in the books, then it’s okay.
I am absolutely in love with snow and the cold weather right now while being pregnant in the third trimester at 33 weeks. Can’t get enough of it. So much better than being super pregnant in the summer when it’s scorching hot! I also find because my body temperature is much higher, I can withstand the cold like never before and I quite like it :).
Speaking of snow, I thought I’d share a photo of the great wilderness taken in Iceland since I have not posted a new print in a while. (Been focused on baby stuff — my brain is ALL baby right now if you can’t already tell based on the past few posts.)
Anyhow, I plan to blog before the new year to reflect on 2017 but in case I flop on that one, I want to wish you all an incredible, happy, healthy, and prosperous new year. 2018 is going to be a game changer! xo
Our backyard oasis is in progress!! Oh how much easier it is for renovations to take place outside of the house rather than inside. Little to no headaches in comparison. If they all could be this painless. :) It looks like it’s all going to be ready right in time for Spring – I just can’t wait to spend all my hot summer days in it. We’re not quite sure what we’re signing up for as far as maintenance goes but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there ;).
Here’s a different shot of the majestic Zion. Big rocks and mountains really get me every time. We were initially planning a trip to Norway for June but given the backyard, we’re thinking of pushing it out to the end of the summer. One way or another though, we will get to Norway! Happy Sunday, everyone!
Yay!! So excited. After going back and forth on a few Zika-free options, Norway has ended up at the top of the list, specifically the Lofoten Islands and the Geirangerfjord. Oh my god, the fjords are absolutely stunning. The pictures alone have already taken my breath away. Can’t wait to book in the next couple of weeks! Eeepp!
I am so fortunate to love my day job and am privileged to be working on a brand like Nature Valley where I can be a part of its beautiful journey to help others rediscover the joy of nature.
Tomorrow, an amazing campaign is launching on Nature Valley Lunchbox where a partnership with Earth Rangers has enabled us to put a #naturemission on every granola bar wrapper to inspire kids to get outside and engage with nature in simple, easy, fun ways. :)
Here’s one of many gorgeous waterfalls in Iceland because I’m feeling inspired by nature :).
Here’s one of many magnificent open roads in beautiful Iceland. Absolutely breathtaking driving through this scenery!!! I’m craving another adventure. Planning something for February, smack down the middle of winter gloom. :)
Happy (almost) new year!!! :) Wishing you all a phenomenal 2017!!! xoxo
New print of Venice Beach in Los Angeles, California. :) Merry Christmas to you and yours if I don’t blog again between now and then! It’s my favourite time of the year! I just love the amplified love and kindness all around. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season! Back again soon.
