Time with friends & family

Lucky duck that I am, I got to spend the holidays with my awesome family and all of my lovely Canadian friends. Two whole weeks spent catching up and enjoying each others company. It went by too quickly and now I’m back in sunny California with fond memories to share =)

Our stay started out for a few days in the area we moved from before moving to Cali. We rented an adorable cottage off of Airbnb. It was a cute, little place in someone’s backyard and it was dog friendly!

Sunny quite likes it when we take her on adventures with us.

Terry unfortunately wasn’t feeling great, so we didn’t get to meet up with everyone we would have liked, but we did get to see some of our friends.

  1. It looks like you had a wonderful time visiting friends and family! It’s great you got to meet up with other vegan bloggers too! I would like to do that sometime as well. Sunny looks adorable in that sweater – I love doggies in sweaters. I love how Peanut had a Christmas sweater on as well. :)

  2. Looks like you had a great time. I love Sunny in her little Christmas sweater!
    The painting you did for your sister is really beautiful. Just gorgeous.

    1. Sunny also loves her Christmas sweater =)
      Oh wow – thanks for the compliments on the painting! I didn’t think it turned out that great so I really appreciate all the nice words!
