There is nothing like the first snow to break the winter funk (or winter blues) that the short days bring with them.
Yes, the weather does need to be cold for it to snow, but!
Snow illuminates the landscape.
The world seems quieter.
Everyone seems to stay indoors.
But we find snow calls for attention and invites us outside.
Somehow the cold air is not as cold as it is when there is no snow.
The fresh, unmarked snow is beautiful.
Little footprints in snow are my favourite.
Jimmy's footprints are the best.
Falling snow is wonderful too, soft flurries seen from the shelter of our apartment. Sometimes it's fun to be out in it, and sometimes the north wind makes the snow extra icy.
Yesterday morning we woke up to the first snow of the winter and while I am sick (more on that another time), it has lifted my spirits. As Daddy took Jimmy to daycare, I snuck out and took a picture of them as they headed out. The morning was cold but so pleasant, I would have liked to spend more time out there... Next snow right?
