Winter Magic


Snow is such a novelty in this part of the country.  The West Coast doesn’t usually see much snow, so taking Maddie up to Whistler to play in mounds of the fluffy, white stuff was really quite magical.  All she wanted to do was walk in the snow, and walk we did.  We also took her on her first gondola ride and went sledding for the first time.  Obviously, this was a big hit.  I only wish we had had even more time to play.

This new Winter coat from Point Zero came just before Christmas.  While I have only had the chance to wear it a couple of times at home, I wore it non-stop in Whistler.  So cozy and warm and obviously, a chic Winter topper is a must at a ski resort.

This overpriced piece of plastic we bought up in Whistler ended up being worth every penny.  “More!” was all we could here Madelyn say.  She wouldn’t even be at the bottom of the hill yet and was ready for the next run.

People watching in Whistler is fantastic!  There are so many individuals from all over the world roaming the cobblestone streets.  The Winter outfits never disappoint.  To make sure I added to the colourfulness of this ski town, I opted for these fun printed leggings from Du North Designs. They seriously feel like butter, and work on my curves.  {Yes, I wore a little knit sweater dress over them to make sure my butt was covered.  It’s the only way leggings should be worn…with the tush concealed.}

This big grin sums up our weekend perfectly.  All smiles.

We spent a little apres time at one of our fave hotels in Whistler, Nita Lake Lodge.  It’s so peaceful and beautiful there.

Family getaways are so very important.  Any time you can leave work and daily responsibilities behind to create new family memories, is worth making time for.  We had such a great time.  It’s hard getting back into the swing of things today as I sit here with deadlines, emails, work, and mounds of laundry, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
