My first few days of the New Year were spent in Kananaskis with my parents. We wanted to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and forget about tasks and To Do lists. It was really great to get fresh air and get some exercise after all that holiday feasting. I’ll be celebrating Ukrainian Christmas today at my grandparents where food a plenty will be served. I love how long we get to keep the decorations hung at our home because of celebrating two Christmases.  

We skated on a pond at the hotel. As my papa taught us about the stars, we tried not to slip onto our bums while looking up to the sky.
