After the popularity of the list I put together of some of my favourite gift ideas found locally last Christmas, I thought it would be fun and hopefully helpful to do it again this holiday season! Here is part one of this list, with more goodies to follow. And of course, there are so many amazing gifts available in this town, this list just highlights some of my personal favourites. Enjoy!
Happy Holidays, here's the first of my seasonal playlists. Enjoy and let it snow!
Christmas Time is Here - A Charlie Brown Christmas (Vince Guaraldi Trio)
Winter Song - Sarah Barellies and Ingrid Michaelson
It's been a while since I last posted a playlist, so it's a long one this time around! Nothing like some fantastic music to compliment a beautiful fall - enjoy!
The Lumineers - "Stubborn Love"
Wapiti is here at last! Here is a little teaser to get you pumped up for Fernie's popular Canadian Indie music festival - see you there!
Stellar Radio Choir - Confessions (Of a Paranoid Schizophrenic)
The Boom Booms - Delivered
Where to begin.
Fernie Half Marathon, 2011
We take for granted so much in life, but in all reality it's impossible to be aware of everything. From the moment we wake up to the minute we fall asleep, we come across many individuals offering their services, support and abilities to help us not only get through the day but to enjoy it. While some may not be on a volunteer basis, I'm guessing if you look back through your interactions a large portion of it is.
Just what is so great about Canada Day Weekend in Fernie? Where do we begin...
It all starts off with the Furious3 Mountain Bike race. This event is in its second year and draws mountain bike enthusiasts from near and far to Fernie's renowned singletrack. From locals enjoying their first race experience, to national athletes such as Melanie McQuaid and Mical Dyck pushing their limits, it's exciting to say the least and takes Fernie by storm.
Recovering from a running injury (yes, that's correct - running injury. don't get me started) alongside rainy, grey weather can really put a "damper" on one's mental state of mind. So how have I pushed through this double whammy? Here's a quick list!
Gardening. Who knew it could be so rewarding! I have herb planters that are thriving with the additional attention they are receiving, and my garden is budding into a soon-to-be edible masterpiece... at least by my standards.
This morning I decided to play my iTunes library on shuffle - here are a few of the songs that made an appearance! Enjoy this beautiful, sunny day in Fernie, BC.
Mountain Sound - Of Monsters and Men
Gun-Shy Sunshine - Silversun Pickups
