As the 2014 Winter Olympics draw the final curtain and the month of February nears its end, I look back over the past two months and it is so obvious that YES, we are winter! Canada, Alberta, Calgary, Me: wearewinter iamwinter! Like other catch phrases that grabbed my attention and I related to such as "remember to breathe", "embrace today", "on top of the world", now "wearewinter" Canada's Olympic Team banner, is the new one for me! Those three simple words pack a punch.
No matter what winter throws our way, I will find a way to safely embrace it.
When avalanche ratings reached high, we still found safe places to play.
When temperatures dipped way way down, extra layers did the trick.
When it seemed the city was covered in ice, micro-spikes worked wonders.
When the highways were treacherous, I stayed home and baked biscuits.
So far, this winter has been wonderful!
I enjoyed sharing days with new friends and look forward to more adeventures with them.
I took my first ever winter vacation to a cold destination place, this will now become a tradition.
I snowshoed more kms in the first 2 months of 2014 than I did in all of 2013.
