The Holiday Gift Guide has another giveaway for you.
But first a word from yours truly…because I got to warm you up somehow.
OOOH can you feel that crispness in the air? Are you down with the almost to below freezing temperatures? Are your kids wearing pants yet? I’m happy to say that mine FINALLY is but forget the winter coat. ‘No way!’, he shouts at the top of his lungs.
‘You’re being mean!’ he says.
It’s just not worth the fight. Anyway…
Winter is here! If you live in Vancouver you know what I mean. We don’t get a lot of snow or cold here so when it feels like winter, and even Christmas in our rainy city, it’s something to celebrate!
With that however comes more time spent indoors snugglin’, cooking, taking up new hobbies (I just bought a sewing machine), and listening to music. In our house the Christmas music is on every day much to my chagrin. Don’t get me wrong now. I love Christmas music. In December people!
I’d much rather get into the spirit by going out and enjoying the Christmas festivities around town. Markets that serve hot mulled wine, window shopping, tree buying..Doesn’t it just seem more special somehow?
With that in mind and I know you’re reading this to get to the goods so I won’t go on, I’ve got a pretty special giveaway. And it all about Christmas music. IN DECEMBER.
