Snow Magic

"Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood."
~Andy Goldsworthy~

Good morning! Guess what? It snowed! I won't be taking a snow day today or anything like that but it's OK, 3-4 inches makes me as happy as if there were a blizzard. 

Yesterday afternoon the snow came down for an hour or two in light fluffy flakes and created a magical wonderland.

I was so excited I could have danced a jig and threw myself to the ground to make a snow angel. I refrained and just quietly enjoyed it. 

I did make the first tracks!

 I grew up in the Midwest and some of my happiest days were spent frolicking in the snow or just sitting inside watching the flakes flutter to the ground creating a magical wonderland. 

I miss that as we do not get much snow in my part of the country. 

Today I feel rejuvenated; the fresh fallen snow and the beauty left in its wake has me grinning from ear to ear. 

I realize that for many Summer is their favored time of the year but for me it is the opposite.

 I enjoy winter, whether I am inside nesting or outside enjoying the chill in the air, the breeze in my hair and the snow landing softly on my cheeks. It brings a smile to my face and a spring to my step. 

It truly is the little things in life that bring the most pleasure. If you are a fellow snow lover I hope that you were lucky enough to get some too, if not I am sure that before winter is over you will have your fill. 

I hope you enjoy your day, stay warm and safe. 


  1. Such pretty photos. I love to watch it snow! I can watch snow all day long.

  2. Elizabeth I wish you were my next door neighour. I love the snow and we could go out to play! SO many people dislike it and i'm like you, it brings back all those fond memories of being a kid!!

    I hope you have a wonderful day! xx

  3. Yes, indeed! I'm a fan of snow and winter :) As soon as I woke up, put on my coat and ran outside to inspect. So pretty!! I think we might be getting more snow, Elizabeth.
    Enjoy and be safe ~

  8. I am so very envious! I am very fond of winter, and your pictures are absolutely lovely bringing such joy. Enjoy your snow dear.

  9. So pretty! What is it about a snow fall that makes us feel like kids .. or frolicking in the snow?! We get a little snow living at the higher elevations/foot hills in WA state. The forest looks so pretty when covered in white and the roads often close because they aren't easily accessible by snow plows.

    Enjoy every minute!
