Yes, December has definitely snuck up on me. You too?
While we have been trying not to rush and dive head first into all things holiday, we didn’t really have a choice this weekend. We couldn’t find our holiday decorations, Advent calendar, our tree stand or Christmas tree ornaments. After searching through our storage unit, we realized we stored them somewhere else – at my in-laws house in New Jersey. OOPS. As a result, there was no rushing around this weekend to buy a tree and decorate it.
That’s the thing – this holiday season and this winter, I don’t really want to rush around. I want to enjoy it and have fun as well as to make sure that we don’t miss out on those special moments that come along with the season. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been compiling a winter bucket list in my head.
At the top of my list is skiing. I missed last year’s ski season because of my knee injury and impending surgery and I really really really want to ski this year. I should be fine to ski – in fact, that was a major factor in my decision to have knee surgery relatively soon after becoming injured because I knew that I would need close to a year of rehab before getting back on the mountain. I’m also looking forward to Jasper returning to ski school and Everett taking his first official ski lesson.
Many of the other items on my winter bucket list are more about savoring the season and making memories with my kids, like make snow angels with them instead of just taking pictures and watching from the sidelines.
I have a few more ideas on my Winter Bucket List Pinterest board and will be adding more in the coming weeks.
What’s on your winter bucket list?
