It Finally Feels Like Winter!

Yes, it finally feels like Winter around these parts!  I’m not going to lie; not having snow on Christmas morning was a bit of a bummer.  Looking out of the window and seeing decaying leaf bits left over from the fall didn’t cut it;) There is something about crisp white snow that is comforting to me; almost cathartic.  Maybe it is because I grew up in New England (Connecticut) where there was never a lack of it. It really was picturesque. Some of my fondest childhood memories are sitting by a crackling fire, skiing in Vermont and just BEING in the snow in my own backyard.

Thankfully, one of my sons got the “snow” gene;)  He is a  TOTAL winter nut.  He loves all things snow…the more the merrier!  He can stay out in the freezing cold and it just does not bother him.  The other guy…not so much;) There is a video on my IG account (21sunshineave) of my boy doing what he loves best!  (for some reason the video wouldn’t download here).  Check it out on my page!

I held out taking Christmas exterior pictures of our home because it just didn’t look right without snow.  So, with my iPhone in hand I snapped a few pictures in the frigid cold (it was 2 degrees out;)!

Of course I had to include a picture of beloved Wilson…he likes to photobomb all of my pictures;)  He, like my son, loves snow and thinks he is a puppy again when the white stuff makes its first debut!

Oh how I love you snow, the cold…not-so-much;)  But I will take it!  Now I have to go bundle up and shovel my deck;)
