Merry Christmas and Happy New Year bloggers! I hope this holiday season has been a good one for you, filled with love and cheer!
Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve last blogged. I had some ideas for posts but I got swept up by the month of December and never got around to sharing any of it with you. I’ve decided to fill you in on my month, just before it ends and a new year(!!) begins.
So, without further ado, I present: December. Enjoy!
^^A girl in my nursing group’s dog had puppies a couple of months ago. I was sick the first time she brought them in, so you can probably imagine how excited I was when she brought them in for our last lab of the semester. We watched them play in the snow for close to two hours.^^
About halfway through the semester we switched instructors. My group and I absolutely loved our first instructor, so we were pretty nervous about getting to know someone new. Our new instructor was amazing. I only have positive things to say about her. She made the rest of the semester so much more bearable. Honestly, she fit in with us perfectly. She was super encouraging and was always there for us when we needed her. This group was great and definitely made this semester an amazing one. I loved being at the Children’s hospital.
I finished off my last day of semester 7 with some of my best friends. It was great to celebrate being done school and the start of Christmas with them. And the lights at Spruce Meadows weren’t bad either.
I went to Canmore this December and met up with R. That town is so beautiful. The drive out there was exceptionally breathtaking this time around. There was not a cloud in the sky. It really is something to see those snow covered mountains against the blue of the sky. Beauty beyond belief.
^^Can you imagine living in a town where there are mountains beside you no matter where you look. Canmore is a truly gorgeous town set in an even more gorgeous range of mountains. I’m so glad they are only an hour drive away from Calgary.
^^The weather was beyond gorgeous. Remember the last time I drove out to the mountains? This time was completely different, clear roads and much warmer weather.
^^Never have I been happier to be reunited with friends. I think the last time all five of us were together was high school. They are amazing women of God and I am truly blessed and encouraged by them. I am so thankful for good friends and good times as this year comes to an end.^^
We welcomed a new baby girl into the world this December and I could not be more happy for our family friends. She is the most adorable baby I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen quite a few. I love her so much already and I can’t wait to see her grow up. She is a blessing.
^^And then there was Christmas dinner, or post-dinner to be precise. I managed to convince the family to do a seafood dinner instead of the traditional turkey dinner and let me tell you, it was the best decision!
See you in 2015 bloggers! Happy a happy and safe new year!
