    Snow is exciting when you haven’t seen it for a long time – hope you keep loving it – sounds like fun in Toronto – hope to hear about the christmas markets

  2. Emma

    Oooh, “The Distillery District.” That sounds lovely and magical and unmeltable and Christmasy!

    Glad to see that winter is treating you well so far. It all looks like a good time to me:)

    PS love Doug! “Hey Doug! *honk honk*”

    Oh my, that’s an honest to goodness snowflake!! That right there would be almost enough to make a snowy winter seem worthwhile … that balcony view would certainly help though, how gorgeous 🙂 Plus, apparently Leunig is drawing in your ice cream for when you’re feeling a tad homesick.

    Gasp, so inspiring, so beautiful!

    And the snowflake is rather lovely, too. <3

    Jumping shot! Woohoo! Snow and squirrels always fascinated me abroad too.

    That snowflake is also exquisite. Maybe its resilience, despite its fragility, is just like you 🙂

    The squirrel is like a weeping angel. Don’t blink!

    What a beautiful snowflake. It endured beyond it’s life’s expectations. Isn’t that a wonderful concept:)

      Ahoy, fellow Whovian!
      That is all.

    You’ve got quite a view there! Hope you’re loving the new place!

    P.S. I want to snuggle that adorable squirrel, though I may possibly anesthetize it first just in case it’s a meanie.

    Well, darling, I think you and Toronto winter are going to do just fine 🙂 What a beautiful post, and to think I didn’t know you could possibly be warm or that you liked Green & Black’s chocolate 😉 Your new place has a gorgeous view (in light and in dark!) and I’m wishing for many more indoor and outdoor dances before your winter is over.

    (PS. I wish I had a snowflake like that one too.)

      I think I meant to write “wishing *you* many more dances”. Proof read, Kari, proof read!

    Hannah dear. You are such a wonderful writer, and we have not talked in simply too long. How are you?

  11. Lou

    That snowflake is amazing!

  12. Julie

    speechless that snowflake is perfection! Love the jumping shot 🙂 hope you are having fun on your travels!

  13. Catherine

    I love snowflakes that just sit there, crisp in their perfection. You see? Winter isn’t so bad. But do those squirrels come any bigger? xxcat

  14. Libby

    Pretty snowflake! Black squirrel! Chocolate peanut butter ice cream! :-O

    Wow that squirrel – don’t move or else 😉
    Don’t blink 😉
    Love winter!

    That’s beautiful! That snowflake is picture perfect 🙂 And that squirrel, lol don’t get me started! 😛

  17. Ali

    What a beautiful post! I love the picture of the snowflake…magical 🙂 Canada in winter isn’t so bad!! Embrace it, love it! I love the quote behind the chocolate and the icecream, too! Enjoy your new abode 🙂

    Now that really is a snowflake! – not like Canberra snowflakes which seldom even hit the ground. A lovely post Hannah – we hope you have many more such beautiful, happy days as you have been having.

    What a handsome squirrel -I’ve never seen a black one before. They’re all reds here in Switzerland. Maybe he was only moving closer to see your amazing snowflake?

  20. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Looks like a super nutritious dinner, love it 🙂 Your view is so lovely too! This last week has been insane for me, but hopefully it quiets down soon- then we must get together!

    Great post Hannah. That snowflake is just magic. I never knew there were such an animal as a black squirrel. Though, I think you were right to flee, I think he looks a bit evil in that first photo.

  22. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    This post contains an essence of magic… love that snowflake pic!!! And what great memories of us dancing around the fire pit, hehe. Next time we’ll actually have to have a fire in it. Seems like you’re all snuggled into the new place. xoxo
    PS – that squirrel looks as big as Ally!

    Oh pretty snowflake and cute black squirrel! And delicious choc-peanut-butter ice cream! Such wonderful delights, all!

    Love this post! Gorgeous snow flake, and great photo of it! I went to Eaton Centre, I think! Are there geese on the ceiling? Also, all the black squirrels I saw in north america were agile and sneaky, so we called them ninja squirrels. Your squirrelly friend looks a little… ahem… fluffy. Not so ninja like at all!
