I’m not going to try justifying my blog hiatus, so instead I bring you the last 4ish months in photos!
Most notably, Dan and I went over to the states for Christmas this year. It was so nice to be able to spend Christmas with my family as I have been in England for the past few years. It was also really good to see my mom and dad since they had their motorcycle accident in September. My dad was on crutches when we arrived and walking around without them by the time we left! Unfortunately, poor mom was not on crutches and ended up back on them when we left!
Dan fully embraced the cold weather, taking the dog out, he even got to go snowboarding twice (thanks so much to our cousin Tim for getting us into Wild Mountain and Andy for joining us on the hill!), and we did a bit of sledding as well.
Christmas was an eventful day, with Grandma and Grandpa’s for brunch, my Uncle Joe’s for lunch/dinner, and then back to Aunt Jodie’s and Uncle Rick’s for drinks and more food! It was a really nice trip, plenty of catching up with family and friends and experiencing a “proper” winter! No overnights in the airports either, although it was a close call!
Here’s Dan and I having our first fish and chips of the year on the beach 🙂 We had just had some really bad storms and were actually sitting where some of the beach huts stood. Dan was very busy at work due to all the bad weather!
And most exciting, next month, we’re going on holiday to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands to this resort! Dan plans on doing a lot of kite surfing and I plan on doing a lot of reading, drinking, eating, and sunbathing 🙂
