A surprise rustic shed snow day

read

I’ve mentioned no less than a bazillion times how much I love snow. It’s very seldom we have a white Christmas on Canada’s west coast. And I’m not entirely sure we will this year. But, what are the chances of right before leaving on a tropical getaway, we are BLASTED with a blizzard? Low! It’s […]
