the scout / 36


This week has been one of the most exciting weeks of the year, marked namely by the engagement of my very best friend. Since then, it’s been many coupes of champagne and impossibly beautiful flowers. If you would have told our five-year-old selves that we get to plan our weddings together, I would have never believed you. And so, 2016 will absolutely be the best year ever!

We are heading to St. Marys to see Andrew’s family for the holidays, and I am really hoping they have some snow (it’s been unseasonably balm-y as of late). I hope you take some time to enjoy the festive season this weekend.

Some lovely links for your reading pleasure . . .


Speaking of holiday cheer: I love this Koodoo sing-a-long video with Choir! Choir! Choir! It’s for a good cause, too.
