Follow me:

Winter is…

Hearing the high winds and snow as it dusts the windows like so

Snow on our front screen door...

and opening the door in the morning and finding that it will only open halfway



and stepping outside in your favorite around-the-house sweater and slippers to capture the aftermath


Gazing at holiday lights at night and the fluffy snow that complement them


Pulling out the cookie press and sprinkles to bake edible delights

Rosemary Sugar Cookies

Decorating the banister and hanging the stockings (This year we have real garland!)


Not feeling obligated to leave the house because you couldn’t get out even if you tried


Custom knit hats and drippy noses


Footie PJs and festive accessories


Perfectly imperfect holiday family photos


Eyeing special ornaments day in and day out


Exchanging gifts with family


Holiday bokeh

Bird Bokeh

And more of this

Snow Fluff

which will serve as a comforting reminder to slow down, enjoy the warmth of home, and give thanks.

Here’s to hoping Mother Nature decides to share a little Winter with us soon!
