Like most of the Southeast, the girls and I have been snowed in at home for two days. Alain's been traveling for work so I went it alone. Whew. I am WORN OUT but, overall, had a REALLY wonderful time. I will always be thankful for these two days alone in the snow with my girls....
I am ALWAYS happy when I get to put on my snow boots.
With our neighbors' two girls. LOVE.
Clara and her "bestie"
I can't get enough of this girl lately. Love, adore, admire her.
One of my absolute favorite things in life.....untouched snow, speckled with sunlight. Truly divine.
This morning we had the most beautiful snow I've ever seen with flakes the size of quarters. The girls and I just stood in the middle of the street with our arms out turning in circles....laughing and giggling and smiling the entire time!
I purchased some fresh flowers in advance of the storm. I knew they'd help get me through!
The birds have been AMAZING! Our yard has definitely been their hangout during the storm. The girls and I walked the street behind our house this morning. We walked along in the quiet but, as we passed our house (in the back), we suddenly noticed tons of birdsong. We stopped in our tracks and listened for several minutes. It was so awesome and made me incredibly happy! More bird pictures to come....
Okay, one more view of the lavender flowers.
How else did I survive? Well, we had many dance parties to "get the wiggles out". Out of thousands of songs, we chose Macklemore. Oh Macklemore! "White Walls' was my personal favorite during this storm and will probably always remind me of these two days.
Tonight the girls and I had dinner with our neighbors and, as we walked back home, we couldn't believe how beautiful the moon was. Full and bright. I have no idea how to get a good photo of the moon (need to study this post!) and you know this silly picture does not do it justice. It was the best I could do with a screaming child in my arms! As I closed the garage behind us my only thought was that this perfect moon was the best ending to our two snowy days.
Hope all of our Southeast family and friends stayed safe and warm!
