How are you guys? I’m secretly enjoying this warmer weather, even if it is rainy. It reminds me a lot of winter when I was living in London, England and I love the cool, crisp air.
Do you guys send out holiday cards? I am a big letter writer and have sent out cards every year for what seems like forever. The list of addresses keeps growing, but I still try and keep it personal. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a card this year. It was a very busy quarter for me and I just didn’t love any of the photos (you can see an attempt above which I decided against). In the end, I created the perfect image which in my world is perfectly imperfect.
What are you up to this weekend? We are hoping to make it to a special sneak peek of Santa at Complexe Desjardins. After that we have our usual swimming, playing etc. To be honest as the kids get older I am happier and happier just hanging out with them and having very low key downtime to just enjoy each other. It kind of makes me panicky if we have too much stuff planned in a weekend, but I used to very much be the opposite – panicky if we had nothing planned. It’s funny how things change.
Let me know what you guys are up to! I know there’s a bunch of fantastic Christmas markets going on and I urge you to BUY LOCAL or at least from independent shop owners. Being an entrepreneur is very very hard work and very precarious and I know we all love seeing independent shops in our neighbourhood or online, and all these fabulous makers in Montreal but in order to continue to see that we need to support them by choosing to spend our dollars there. I know I go on about this every year but I’m pretty passionate about it.
Take care and enjoy the beginning of the mayhem that is known as DECEMBER
