*a snowy day*

~a first glimpse at the crazy snowfall.

Fall was slightly interrupted this year by a crazy little snowstorm that dropped 10 inches of snow overnight. Literally, the day before it was 80 degrees, bright and sunny and the leaves have never been more gorgeous, and then BAM...winter wonderland! I so wanted to stay home and be cozy with a cup of hot cocoa and watch the snow with nugget, but instead I went to work, and Daddy decided to stay home and do just that. Boooooooo! I checked in with them throughout the day and they were having a blast playing hard in the snow. I am not sure how I lived without snow for ten years, there is really nothing like that first snowfall. It completely warms your soul, makes you feel cozy thoughts and it is just makes everything so bright and beautiful. If you are one of those people that don't feel quite like this about snow, Colorado might be the place for you. Because all of this white stuff practically disappeared today. I love the sound of the sun melting it to pieces, it just sounds like he is on a crazy mission to get the job done. I love it all.

  1. I have never missed snow more than I do at this very moment!!! It just isn't the *real* holidays without snow :( Can't believe you are going to have TWO little nuggets playing around in the snow next year!!

  2. I am going to have to steal a quote from here for my status. :) I would ask for permission first but I don't feel like waiting. :)
