Listen, I know it’s been a while since I wrote but there are just some days when we go to brunch and head back to your place to be lazy bums. Writing about that all the time would be boring because it would literally be the same notes, over and over. This doesn’t mean those dates aren’t important. If anything, I might love those days the most. Just living life with you in the most normal way. Our perfect synergy and just the way that we fit each other’s personality perfectly. But, this day was special and it deserves to be written about.
We woke up early and hit the road north. We were off to Blue Mountain to spend a day in the village. We did something neither of us had ever done before – snowshoeing. Which was super fun even though at the top of the mountain I thought I was going to die from an asthma attack. I was fine once we started to head down the mountain.
The weather could not have been more perfect. It was chilly but not super cold, sunny with some clouds and then perfect little snow flurries now and then. Once we got back to the village, I had my first taste of maple taffy. By the way, I’ve been craving it ever since. You’ve ruined me. We danced. Like crazy people with that guy in the super bright snow onesie lol. We did some shopping in the stores that had some amazing sales. Got some really cute shirts and sweaters. We certainly love our comfy clothes and we definitely have the same aesthetic, as if that wasn’t obvious before.
We waited in line for the mountain coaster and then they shut it down due to snow. But, we walked around the village a bit more and when we went back it was back up and running. That coaster was SO MUCH FUN. Neither of us knew just how high up the mountain it went until we got over that first hump. But, OH MY GOD. There is still so much for us to do up there and I can’t wait to go back in the spring or summer with you. We will need to take adorable pictures there year round. Just like our new favourite picture, the village picture.
The last thing we did was settle into the Irish pub for a snack and hot cocoa before heading back, it was St Paddy’s weekend after all. We sat in a super comfy booth and listened to live music while singing and laughing. It’s so hard to put into words these perfect moments with you. Sitting in that pub was a perfect moment. Just looking at you across the table from me as we both melted into the seats laughing so hard that our laughs turned silent. It’s memories like this that I created this blog for. Years from now, when we are sitting in that pub again while spending a winter vacation week up at our cottage, I want to look across the table at you and remember that first time. I have no doubt that all of our subsequent trips there will be just as amazing and filled with even more wonderful memories. But, I’ll always see you sitting there in that green beanie laughing. Always.
You’re my best friend, my favourite person, the love of my life. And, we are going to fill our lives with wonderful adventures together.
Love, Your best friend, C.
