one year blog anniversary

we are here... in Canmore staying at Mystic Springs luxury chalets. (picture below)Beautiful. Canmore is in the heart of the canadian rockies. Mountains all around. breathtaking. majestic and gorgeous. we hope to go skiing at Sunshine later the week. as for now... it's rather cold (!!) and we are doing a little window shopping and enjoying starbucks mocha's.


thanks so much for the comments! i enjoyed reading them all. the internet connection in our chalet is not working so i am sitting in the lounge here and i asked the receptionist to pick a number between 1 and 13 and she chose number 3!! Stacical! you are IT!! email me! i got you the cutest little tin containers! YAY! yesterday was my blog anniversary and i want to celebrate it further! so...


if you want me to send you a postcard (also IKEA)... leave a comment and email me your postal address and i will drop you a note in the mail! (yes! everyone who leaves me a comment and an address will get one!). i want to know what is your favorite drink.


i love a tim hortons half english toffee half decaf... but lately a starbucks Mocha is calling my name!!





a thought to say goodbye... Psalm 121:1 A pilgrim song. I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from GOD, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains. He won't let you stumble, your Guardian God won't fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel's Guardian will never doze or sleep. GOD's your Guardian, right at your side to protect you-- Shielding you from sunstroke, sheltering you from moonstroke. GOD guards you from every evil, he guards your very life. He guards you when you leave and when you return, he guards you now, he guards you always.


love and a kiss

Canmore looks absolutely stunning. I hope you're having a great holiday and are totally relaxed.
I wish we had a Starbucks here (such choices) but I'll have to settle for a Café Latte (ala South African style).
Lotsa luv

Hi Wilna. My favourite drink has to be a cappucino, especially the one from Mugg & Bean (no star bucks here in SA). Enjoy your holiday.
Love

Hi Wilma
Boy does Canmore look beautiful! God sure had fun making those mountains. Ironically my hubbie and I will be visiting some new church plants in Canmore, Calgary and a couple of other places in Albetra, in Feb next year....now I know what to expect. Hope you have a good break.
My favourite drinks have to be Coke lite with loads of lemon and this divine Vanilla coffee I buy from a little shoppe in Lymington, UK everytime I travel. (I buy like 10 bags at a time to last me until the next trip....crazy I know ;o)
Much blessing
Kim
