first snow.


good weekend. good monday, even. a very good monday. this winter's first vigorous snowfall and chocolate cake turned me into a crazy person. I cleaned, I read, I wrote, I opened my window so I could hear and smell the snow falling.

niece Katie, in awe of the snow.

I ran around the house screaming, and later, I actually did some journalling catch-up. which ended up with me getting all weepy while writing about Benjamin's wedding.


just kind of an emotional day I guess...



I'm replaying this, loving this, thankful for this, believing this, aspiring to this, and eating chocolate all day long.



I love snow very, very much.
and--2012? so far, so beautiful.

  10. Pretty pics, Polka Dot.

    It just snowed here, too for the first "significant" snowfall of the winter season - and it is actually snowing today again. YIKES! I hope it doesn't snow a lot because that means shoveling and clearing away the mess. =( So not fun!

  11. That's no fair! I live in KS and by now we usually have had more snow then anyone wanted. This year we've gotten two "sprinkles". :(
