Today it is officially five months until Christmas. Does that seem crazy to anyone else? Since we will be (for the first time) living in a city blanketed in white for the season I am already feeling giddy about the holidays!

If you’re in need of a dose of winter celebration amidst our blazing hot summer why not strap a few presents to the back of your bike and throw white water balloons into the air. It will lift you quickly out of the summer heat. Promise!
