all right, you got me.

i have to admit, i’ve been suckered. it’s not the first time and it certainly won’t be the last, but man-there is something about those hideous little snowstorms that take over our lives, travel plans, and heating bills that i sort of find…nice. there, i said it. of course this may have something to do with the fact that we were the lucky ones who didn’t lose power in the ice storm last weekend, but still.

i like going outside at night and hearing the stillness of the snow, and i like being able to look up and see the snowflakes floating down and catching themselves in my eyelashes.


i like seeing the dog snuffle his nose in the barely there dusting and act like an idiot even though it’s freezing cold out, and i like the feeling of being cozy and safe and warm in our little house while we hear the rumble of the snow plow as it drives by.


and even though i know that it will, at the very least, end up with me scraping my windshield tomorrow morning or cursing under my breath because  i didn’t bother to find my gloves before i got in the car, in the end i have to admit…there’s nothing like a little snow on the ground to remind you how good you have it.



  1. I love those photographs. They look even better once uploaded…
