A short trek to the store

We decided to walk over to the store to get a few more snow snacks. I have never in my life seen so much snow! I was amazed. Aaron has spent almost every winter of his life in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, so he wasn't as flabbergasted as I was. I just hope this was the last storm of the season... hopefully it can melt as soon as possible!

Snowy days

We have had so much snow this winter. I don't think I've ever in my life seen more snow. I've heard it's been record breaking amounts. Since last night, Halifax has gotten about 50 cm, on top of the 30 cm that fell on Sunday. Suffice to stay: we have spent A LOT of time indoors this winter.

Since almost everything has been closed today, Aaron got to stay home! We've made the most out of the situation: we've been living in cozy pajamas, drinking lots of home roasted coffee and espresso, played a board game, watched a few movies and Better Call Saul, enjoyed our #stormchips, we've been listening to the incredible new Modest Mouse album, Strangers to Ourselves, and we've just been spending time together and with Findlay. I took several photos of our day, including our Monopoly game, which Findlay was extremely interested in.

I hope that all of you are staying warm today!

I realized this morning that I have not posted anything in over a month! Life has been particularly busy this winter. I am currently on March Break from student teaching in a grade 6 class, and I have been loving every minute of it. Halifax has also been hit with a multitude of storms, which has left us covered in a very thick layer of ice and snow. Usually I love going out and taking photos in the snow, but all the ice has made is all quite difficult. I think we're all ready for Spring! I'm hoping to get caught up on some posts in the next week. How has your winter been?
