Etsy’s current treasury makes my heart sing for many reasons, the number one being that this year I get to celebrate a White Christmas!!!!! (exclamation points just don’t cut it!! eeeeee!!!)
I am a sucker for snow, I always have been!
My first ever snow memory was of my 5 year old self waking up to my parents hushed whispers that it was snowing outside! We were staying upstairs at my Nan’s house in England on a family vacation & I couldn’t get down that rickety staircase quickly enough! Of course, the snow had turned to rain before I managed to make it outside, so my parents are left with footage of me running around in my pj’s at 6am in the rain! Hah!
Still, snow makes me giddy! That happy, silly, childlike feeling that I hope never goes away!
The last time I had a White Christmas was 8 years ago, before I met Mike & when I was living in Vancouver, Canada. I’d been away from my family for 9 months & it was really showing, so they flew over (from Australia) to surprise me – needless to say it was one of the most magical times ever! ❤
That year was one of the warmest winter’s ever, but I was just told that this year Vancouver is preparing for one of the coldest winter’s for over 50 years!!! Ahhhhh!! I’m in Winter baby heaven! ❤
So I’ll be spending Christmas & New Year in a magical Winter Wonderland with my family (with another very White occasion occurring in between!!!!!!! AHHHH!!!!) before we head off on a one month trip around the USA 🙂
Now, this is where I need your help!
Mike and I will be travelling for 2 weeks on the West Coast, possibly driving from Vancouver down to San Francisco, (weather permitting!), then the next 2 weeks I’ll be travelling solo…but I don’t know where!
Basically, one month of travel has not yet been planned & I would love some input, helpful hints & your must-see’s to make my trip amazing! My options are open as to where I go – I’ve got friends over on the east coast that I haven’t seen in years, so I’m hoping to pencil that in…
Plus did I mention I want to go here…
yes please!!! ❤
Tell me your favourite places to go, the things I must try & anything else you think will add to my trip…and as a thank you, someone will get a few of my favourite things – wrapped up all pretty like! ❤

- a set of reindeer tea towels
