Defining yourself with labels SUCKS!

This week we had our first snowfall of winter 2015, and it was BIG! We had two days where the temperature didn’t peak over 3degrees celsius,  as snow fell almost to sea level blanketing everything in crisp white.

A birthday, a facelift AND a new adventure!

Sanctuary Snow recently turned two! Can you believe it?? I certainly can’t!   What began as a a side project documenting my foray into splitboarding quickly grew into a driving force in my life!

Saturday Session : Ms. Superpark 2014

The leaves are turning beautiful shades of gold, and the days are finally getting shorter down here in the Southern hemisphere, while spring has sprung up north.
