What up!! If you're reading this I'm on my way up-island, as we say here on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, to watch a kid's Christmas concert. Afterwards we're driving back, Ryan's going to work the graveyard shift and I'll be sleeping in a secret location near a hotel so I can catch a shuttle to the airport at 4:20am! What a life, I tell ya. So glamorous.
I'll be away for two weeks in sunny fabulous ... small-town central Alberta. I'm bringing my computer and my various other electronic devices so I'm certain you'll see me around the twitters and the instagrams and the like, but I'm not sure how much free time I'm actually going to have, what with all the family stuff I want to do and the snowmen I want to make and then ninja kick. So I've scheduled a bunch of posts, most of them are like, pretty pictures or whatever but still worth a glance if you're bored or you just miss me so much you can't stand to not see me post something random for one single day.
And now, your links. And selfies. Some of them are artsy because of the black and white filter.
