Admittedly, in the past 6 months or so since our wedding, the frequency of our adventures has ebbed to a relative low. We have temporarily shifted our gazes inward, to our home, and each other. Not a bad thing, unless you have your hearts set on lots of new blog posts…
On the September long weekend, we headed out west. We spent the first night in Yoho National Park, at a provincial campground. To our great surprise, we ran into some friends of ours at the same campground in the morning. It was great to have breakfast with

We spent Christmas morning the way many do — opening ‘stocking’ presents in our pajamas, and eating chocolate and mandarin oranges. We had ‘sticky buns’ (cinnamon buns to me) for breakfast, then opened our ‘non-santa’ presents. For lunch, I made my first attempt at Wife Saver. It’s a pretty great recipe, if you’ve never tried it — basically a french toast/fritatta casserole thingy. And super-tasty. Look it up if you are unfamiliar!
For Christmas Dinner, we went back over to The Lucas’s — The same family that hosted the gingerbread extravaganza on Christmas Eve (it should be noted that this

We finally got to Brian’s Mom’s place in White Rock on Wednesday night around 11pm. After settling in and a small amount of visiting, we got to bed around midnight — Somehow exhausted after our day of doing nothing but sitting around in the airport.
On Thursday, we did some laundry, visited with an aunt and uncle who stopped by, and did some last minute Christmas shopping.
We also visited the ocean — twice. First in the daylight, when the sky was ominous and gray, and the waves were thrashy. Then we came back after dark, when we could only

Apologies for the abrupt stop of blog entries somewhere through our Burning man trip… We didn’t get Internet access again on the trip, and then got caught-up in the non-travel universe once we got home.
It got put off. For months. Again, apologies. So now, some updates.
The rest of our Burning man trip was amazing. To me, it was the best of all my 4 Burns. It was really windy/dusty/stormy for a lot of it — but I can’t complain, the extreme climate is part of what I love about

This past weekend, Brian and I had tickets to the No Doubt concert in Vancouver.
We originally planned to spend a good long weekend there, visiting Brian’s mom in White Rock, and hanging out in and around the GVA. However, when it came down to buying flights (admittedly recently — last week), we decided that we needed a day at home for house/yard work reeeeally badly, and decided to devote our Fridays off to that.
So on Friday we mowed the lawn and weeded
