White Christmas

Have you ever had a white Christmas? I have! In 2008 I went to visit my uncle in Seattle, it doesn’t often snow in Seattle, but that year was crazy. The day after I flew in a thick white blanket covered the entire city and no one knew what to do. It was mayhem. For the whole week I was there the roads were blocked, people were sledding down the streets in the CBD and my uncle and I had to literally trek through a snow storm to the store to buy a turkey for Christmas day (which my uncle then hauled home in a sack on his back!).

A city like Seattle didn’t know what to do with itself with that much snow and everyone I met was winging but I loved it! I went sledding and ice skating, I made a snow man and forced my uncle’s dog to go walking with me through the snow banks (she did NOT appreciate it). I drank spiked coffee with my grandma and threw snow balls at squirrels. I also slipped over about 3000 times and marched into Nordstrom to buy the first pair of snow boots I saw (which happened to be a very lovely Coach pair).  

That white Christmas in Seattle was so much fun, but Christmas in Perth is pretty sweet as well. Hot nights and hotter days call for very little clothing and lots of icy champagne. For my second work party I'm wearing this white cotton shirt dress, it’s super lightweight and easy to wear, perfect for a sticky day on the river. I’m sure I’ll have another white Christmas eventually, but for now the hot dry heat of Western Australia is fine by me.

  2. I�ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before. click here for more info
