Winters in Edmonton are notorious for being exceptionally cold and long. After two years of living in Edmonton I feel like the West Coast girl in me has finally adapted to the -20 degree weather and freezing wind-chills. You know you're becoming an Albertan when the weather creeps up to -6 degrees and you think to yourself, "wow, it's warming up!".
As of late, the weather in the city has been more reminiscent of springtime, with warmer temperatures, sunny skies, melting snow piles, and slushy puddles. Last weekend we went cross country skiing outside of the city, and this weekend we walked across the river to Whyte Avenue to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Tonight after coming out of Costco we were greeted with beautiful orange and purple skies. It was gorgeous, other people also couldn't resist taking photos in the parking lot!

In just under a month (!), we will be embarking on our belated honeymoon, a three-week journey throughout Hong Kong, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. It's our first major overseas trip since our month-long Eurotrip in three years ago, and our wanderlust has only grown and intensified. I look so forward to experiencing the sights, sounds, and tastes of Southeast Asia, absorbing its culture, relaxing on the beach, and best of all, doing it all with my best friend. We hope to document our trip here for ourselves, as well as our family and friends. Stay tuned!
