Getting Ready for Winter
Winter is just around the corner, whether you’re ready for it or not. I look forward to cozy winter nights indoors and a blanket of snow on the trees, but that first major snowfall can feel like an unwanted dinner guest when it catches you off-guard.
To prepare for those frigid temperatures and snowy skies, I thought I would share some of my go-to winter stops in Willow Park Village:
There is no better feeling than jumping into a warm, cozy bed on a chilly winter night. The Down Shop has an amazing selection of duvets, blankets and linens that are both stylish and comfortable. Your bedroom will be a true oasis, giving you that warm and fuzzy feeling all season long.
The next stop is the Alberta Motor Association—an absolute lifesaver when venturing out on unpredictable winter roads. An AMA membership provides 24/7 Roadside Assistance and free battery boosts, which is ideal when your car isn’t cooperating in sub-zero temperatures. AMA also has tons of travel deals and insurance options available if you want to escape the cold for a tropical family vacation. Peace of mind—check!
Clarks England is next on my list. Any Calgarian knows that a good pair of winter boots is essential. At Clarks England, you can find practical footwear without compromising style, and you always know that you are getting shoes that will stand the test of time.
Once I’ve got the family outfitted for winter, it’s time to treat myself! Knickers ‘n Lace has a great selection of winter sleep and loungewear—flannel PJs in fun prints, robes, slippers, and comfy sweats. If you’re looking to get a jump on your holiday shopping, Knickers ‘n Lace offers complimentary gift wrapping to help take some of the stress out of the holiday season.
I love to meet the family for our sushi fix at Sushi Ginza Japanese Restaurant after completing all my errands for the day. There is great selection of classic Japanese food and modern dishes, and they even have options for those picky eaters in the family. Plus, my kids love checking out the floating sushi bar and the Japanese waterfall garden.
We can’t control the weather, but we can be ready for it! Stay safe and enjoy the winter wonderland.
