Love 2 Love Fridays! :: Rachel Boekel Photography ::

It’s 1 week until a white snowy Christmas!

I was so proud today when I dropped by the food bank in Brooks with my 45 cans of food.
You, dear blog followers, did that. Thank you.
I called ahead and asked if there was anything in particular they needed more of.
Hot chocolate and Cranberry sauce. Coming right up.

Geordie and I have been super reflective this past week on how lucky we are. We have everything we could possibly need. And more.
We have our families within an arms reach or a 3 hour drive, we all get along and love spending time together. We also have the best of friends.

Christmas is a special time of the year; people make more time for each other, bake cookies for each other (a personal favorite) and share and laugh and celebrate.
There really is nothing I love more than a good evening with family or friends, something which I need more of in my every day life.
That’s what I love about Christmas, we drop work, we take time, we appreciate and I can’t be more excited for this coming up.
That and our awesome neighborhood just cleared a skating rink on the lake and I hope to practice my super slick hockey moves soon.
And by super slick moves I mean ‘slippery, wobbly but totally dedicated to trying’ slick moves or dangles as they are more commonly referred to.

Here’s the haul. I had meant to photograph them under my outside tree but that would have meant bringing it all home and then driving it back to town. Nah.
