Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

Happy New Year! The first blog post I wrote on More than Rubies last January was a looking back on 2015 post. I can’t believe I’ve almost been blogging for one year! 2015 was a rough year with a lot of changes and moves, and I am happy to say that 2016 was much more stable. Living only an hour away from my family this past year and a half has been amazing. It makes my heart so happy that I get to drive down and see them pretty much anytime I want. It is definitely not something I take for granted after being away for so many years. Today, I am ready to say Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017! Read more

If you don’t know what Vlogmas is, it is when YouTubers post a vlog (video diary, day-in-the-life sort of video) every day from Dec. 1 to Dec. 24 as a lead-up to Christmas. This post is a selection of vlogmas videos you should be watching this month.

Christmas Tag

The snow’s coming down, I’m watching it fall..lots of people around, baby PLEASE come home! Ok, so the snow is not coming down. In fact, we haven’t even had a proper snowfall yet! There’s snow on the mountains, but none in town or on our grass or anything. Nonetheless, December is upon us, I have already been to two Christmas parties, and it is time to get festive! To kick off this Christmas season, I thought I would do the Christmas tag. There are quite a few of these floating around, so I picked a few of my favourite Christmassy questions. Be sure to let me know your answers to these questions in the comments below.
