December Bucket List

Wow! How is it December 10th already!? I feel like the past ten days have been an absolute blur. It’s hard to believe that Christmas and New Year’s are right around the corner! I really don’t like winter and I don’t know too many people who do to be honest. I hate the cold, the snow, the slush, the ice…basically everything about winter sucks (in my opinion) but I do really enjoy the month of December. I like the build up to Christmas as well as New Year’s; the anticipation of having yummy dinners and goodies, the giving and receiving of cards, the lights and decorations, all the family time. I look forward to all of that once November passes. So in honour of my love for December, here is my December Bucket List!
