We finally got some snow on Wednesday after more than two years without more than a trace or a dusting. I was so happy to wake up to a winter wonderland! I felt like a little kid, and I couldn’t wait to get outside to shovel (yes, I really was looking forward to shoveling after all that time!) Sadly, the snow was too powdery to make a snowman.
And then we got some more snow on Friday! It was the powdery, fluffy stuff again, and it freshened everything up and looked so pretty.
Allegra was pretty happy, too. The snow made for some excellent bird watching.
I used to not be a big fan of winter, but over the last couple of years, I found myself longing for snow. As images of snowy Alpine villages scrolled by on my Facebook feed, I was surprised just how much they spoke to my soul. So while the landscape outside our windows isn’t as picturesque as a Bavarian village, I’m going to enjoy my wintry views while they last.
