You all have to know how much I adore snow by now, right? I look forward to it every winter, but sometimes I'm a little let down when we only get a dusting.
Last night, we got 4 inches and I was one happy gal!
We intentionally left up our lights for just this very purpose...to glow in that gorgeous white stuff!
It was like Christmas happened all over again, but with a present that I didn't get for the actual holiday. I did however, get some snow for my birthday but it was only a dusting.
Now isn't this just beautiful? Look at how the lights glow under the layers of that fluffy gorgeousness!
I truly love being outside at night as it comes down. The quiet and stillness that it brings is something truly magical and calming.
To have a nice warm home, in weather like this, truly makes you count your blessings.
This is Bowser's first snow and he truly loves it! Of course having a buddy like Lucie, makes it that much funner to frolic and play in.
He's grown so much and is almost the same size of Lucie...and she's not a little dog. So we definitely have our hands full with this soon to be gentle giant.
He is just the sweetest pup. And I have to say pretty handsome!
I'm so glad we left up the decorations.
The red bows and green pine just pop with the all white backdrop.
This is what I wanted for Christmas! Now I am finally content and will be taking down the lights on the first pretty and dry day we have. I may leave up the pine and bows though...perfect for Valentine's Day.
Maybe I'll find some little red hearts to add to the pine...wouldn't that be pretty?
Mom brought this to us on Christmas Day from her new love. Yes...her new love! She's been reunited with an old flame from way back when and I have never seen my mom any happier. It was a jolt to us all, but to be happy and feel special in this day and age is a true blessing. We haven't met yet in person, but I already feel like I know him so well and he truly hit a sweet spot with giving us this gift. We are so proud to be West Virginian's and if you know anything about us...we bleed blue and gold baby!
So our new year has started out pretty great! New love, health, happiness...that's pretty good, right?!
Oh, and I was contacted by two different magazines overseas wanting to feature some of my photos. Now if that isn't a great way to start out a new year, then I don't know what is!
Happy New Year to you all! I pray you are blessed with
and plenty of
