I could use a nap today...
maybe this guy would let me
join him?  :)

dear spring

Dear Spring,

I think you should come early this year.
My winter wardrobe is a little tired,
and I'm officially ready for cute dresses
and impractical shoes.  These snowbanks
& cold windy days are killing me.

weekend getaway

Tonight we're heading north 
for a weekend with my family.
I'm looking forward to spoiling my 
Momma on her birthday, catching up 
with sister, and lots of Daddy hugs.   
Happy weekend!

our snow day (according to instagram)

To put it mildly, it was a snowy weekend.

This is how our yard & street looked 
when we woke up on Saturday...
and it was still snowing!

Before venturing out, we fortified ourselves
with plenty of coffee, bacon & baked
french toast.  Amaaazing!

We spent a long time outside just digging
the cars out...once we located them!

 Then because we're crazy, we went 
for a walk around our neighborhood.  
It was fun to see everyone outside,
but oh man - it was so windy.
(exhibit a: my hat!)

Since our hilly little street was still covered, 
we tried to buy sleds, but sadly Walgreens 
didn't have any.  Their snowbanks were 
impressive though - taller than me!

And then the perfect end to a snowy day:
whoopie pies!  Since we did all that shoveling,
it seemed like we had earned it.  :)

mantra for today

"Be cheerful no matter what;
pray all the time; 
thank God no matter what happens.  
 This is the way God wants you 
who belong to Christ Jesus to live."
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Today, I will choose a cheerful spirit,
despite my feelings & circumstances.   
(Pray for me, please?)

I'm dying over this new print
that arrived at the gallery today.

It wants to live at my house.
End of story.  :)
