#beadmasstories Day 3

Snowshoeing with Snowman in December 2013.

Happy Tuesday! Today is Day 3 of Beadmas 2019, which means it is time for another #beadmasstories giveaway! Instead of hosting it on my Instagram, I’ve decided to host today’s giveaway on my blog.

One of my favourite hobbies is hiking and when the winter season comes…that turns into snowshoeing! There is nothing better than hiking up a mountain or in a forest…covered in magical snow!

Snowman and I first got into snowshoeing back in 2012 and every year we look forward to going. It is a great way to get in your cardio, but it doesn’t even feel like exercise when you are surrounded by so much beauty and wonder! I always pretend that we are adventuring about in Narnia and to be careful…the Snow Queen might appear…at any moment! We also have a tradition of doing a Christmas snowshoe hike!

After a nice, long snowshoeing adventure, my husband and I always head to a local cafe to warm ourselves with piping hot tea for the journey home. From there, I have a nice hot shower and change into the coziest loungewear and watch the tv fireplace while cuddling into Snowman (aka my husband, if you did not know). Oh, and of course we have more tea!

I really treasure these moments…simple, but perfect and a great time to reflect on your many blessings and loved ones. And have some quality time with your significant other.

    Hi Emily,

    I love snow!! I grew up with it and gone winter we used to wait for that first snowfall, it was always so magical!! Unfortunately we hardly ever get any where we live now.
    My favorite winter activity growing up was building snowmen and hound sledding with my Dad.
    Now with my kids we just make lots of hot chocolate and watch movies with the fireplace in and we also love going out to see Christmas lights.

    Answer to your second question is ?. You and ⛄️ love to cuddle in front of your tv fireplace. ?
