December, in snow.











I took a few photos when we took the dogs for a walk last week, and it just happened to be the first major snowfall of the year! It’s been slowly melting over the last few days, but I’m still holding out hope for a white Christmas.

If you haven’t seen the video I shot during the same walk, you can see it here (and thank you for all of your lovely comments!). And if you want to see more photos from this same conservation area during all sorts of weather and seasons, they’re all here.

Hoping you all had a lovely weekend!

A Winter Walk.

I’ve seen some really lovely videos made by bloggers lately (Liesl’s are some of my favourites), so I decided to give it a try. I took a couple of clips on our walk today, since it seems to be the first significant snowfall of the year! The music in the video is White Winter Hymnal by Birdy.

I’d love your feedback- how do you like seeing videos along with photos?

Also- I’m having my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow morning so I’ll be away for a few days. Hopefully I’ll be back very soon!

November in snow.











When I was visiting my parents last weekend, we got our first proper snowstorm of the year! It’s actually stayed pretty cold since, and there’s been some more snow, so it looks quite lovely outside. We’ve started decorating for Christmas a bit early this year, so the weather seems suitable! I’ll share some pictures of our Christmas decorations and our little tree in a few days.

Go here to see the rest of the photos I’ve taken at this conservation area. There wasn’t snow yet last November!

Do you have snow yet? I’d love to see a photo if you do!

Weekending, extended edition.




I had a few days off from school at the beginning of this week, and I’ve spent the longer weekend visiting my parents. Winter seems to have made its first true appearance, so I spent most of my time indoors with a cup of tea, frantically knitting Christmas gifts… More to come later this week.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying the snow if you got some!


I haven’t shared any Instagram shots here for a few weeks, so it’s about time for another Insta-Friday! I’m going to be quieter on the blog for the next week or so because it’s the end of term, so there are final papers and exams, and I only have so many hours in a day! I have, however, started drafting my year-in-review series (last year’s), which I’m pretty excited about! I think I’ll be publishing it in 3 parts beginning on December 28th.

You can follow me on Instagram @kyliem_w for more phone snapshots!

Last bit of fall. All of the leaves are gone now.

Sunday brunch!

First of the Christmas decorations.

Walking with some friends on Sunday morning.

Quite a bit of snow here lately!

I’ll be returning to my corner in the library now… I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Linking up with Insta-Friday as usual!


Did you see the recipe I posted on Tuesday? It’s the first one I’ve published here so I’m pretty excited about it.

Sharing some quick Instagram shots today. Happy Friday!


My beautiful dog… I’ll get to see him again in just a few weeks!

Weekly craft club… making tissue paper flowers. And having tea, of course.

Rainy night… I took this at about 8:00pm and it had just gotten dark. I am so happy that it’s brighter in the evenings!

An afternoon of tea and crime and punishment!

Late night sushi (for when you forget to have dinner because you’re writing a history paper…)

Studying classics. Exams are only 3 weeks away so it’s getting close to crunch time!

The first day of spring… more like still winter!

So much snow!

New stuff on the wall instead of the paper snowflakes! (Maybe this will encourage some warmer weather?)

Clothes shopping… does anyone else hate trying on clothes? I wish everything just fit and I could just pick out what I liked!

Student union building in the snow.

On my way back from Romni.

Craft club on Valentine’s Day.

Poker night with the family… we are strange!

Shooting recipes for the blog… keep reading in the next few weeks to see them!

Scrabble at home!

Happy Friday!

Not finished with snow and winter yet. In fact, there’s a bit of a blizzard happening while I type this.

More snow.

Beautiful afternoon.

Craft club last week, paper quilling. Loads of fun. I posted about this week’s craft club yesterday!

Intense math study sessions at Starbucks.

Working (very slowly!) on my business casual socks for the KAL (Rav Link).

Happy Friday.
