My 2014 – 2015 winter is complete. I have now experienced snow on the west coast and in the south. Despite a week’s worth of winter weather, today is the first authentic snow day. REAL snow has been falling since early morning. I am currently sitting in the TV room on the second story of my house watching snow fall outside the window, sipping a caramel latte, blogging, and watching “Ghost Whisperer.” I am quite possibly experiencing a piece of Heaven right now. Here is a picture of my backyard to help you imagine what I am experiencing today:
No hate intended, but the incessant amount of social media posts regarding a longing for spring and summer to hurry up and arrive sadden me. I am absolutely obsessed with fall and winter. I love dark clouds and rain and snow and wind. Perhaps it’s my inner poet, but I find much more inspiration in seeing chaos (falling snow, rainstorms, etc) outside my window rather than clear skies and sun. Don’t misunderstand me. I love nature in all forms. I chose landscape photography as a focus in college! But, my heart will always belong to the colder months. I am, after all, an autumn baby.
I hope all of you have a pleasant day, snow or not. Stay cozy readers!
