Starting 2013 Snowed Under

Wel­come, 2013! Now please melt that snow. I took enough pictures—thank you.

A few days after the first mas­sive Christ­mas snow storm, we had another win­ter weather spell: over 20 cen­time­ters of snow fell on the city, adding to the 30 cen­time­ters that were already on the ground. The result? Mas­sive snow piles in the neigh­bor­hood, benches and patio fix­tures dis­ap­pear­ing under the fresh snow, unshov­eled streets and side­walks and blocked driveways.

Just another day in Canada, basi­cally.

The day after the storm was very cold (- 11°C) but gor­geous, with a clear and crisp blue sky. I walked around the neigh­bour­hood with my cam­era (and brand new iPod Nano—thank you Santa Claus!) and froze my fin­gers off to cap­ture the after­math of the snow storm.

So, 2012 is over and 2013 is begin­ning. It had been quite a year for us, with lots of trav­el­ing (Cen­tral Amer­ica, NYC, France and the UK), nine months of baby-baking and the birth of Baby Mark. I have no idea what 2013 will hold for us but I’m look­ing for­ward to it—life is an adventure!

Thank you all for fol­low­ing us around the world and for read­ing the sto­ries. I’ll be around in 2013 and I hope you will be too!
