We had our first official snowfall last night!
A fluffy white dusting covered everything from head to toe. Oh how I love this time of the year.
In fact, I take back everything I said about not liking the cold; this morning I felt like a little kid in a playground. And if it absolutely must be cold outside before we can enjoy a fresh new layer of snow—if there’s absolutely no way to skirt around the issue—then I’ll take the chilly 10 degrees.
I love the way the thin, crisp layer of snow crackles and crunches under my feet while I’m running.
Music to my ears.
I’m kind of loving winter right now. I hope this feeling lasts a long, long time.
Know what else I’m loving right now?
Shopping (and eating) with mom…
…and shopping with my bestie.
There’s something special about shopping with family. They’re not afraid to say, “ugh, I don’t like that!” And they’re also not afraid to say, “oh my word, you look awesome!”
I love both of these gals to bits.
You probably know this by now, but we tend to shop till we drop. Today we shopped until we dropped after dropping. This is dangerous territory.
This is the territory where you start laughing for no apparent reason at all. Or crying. Whichever comes first.
This is where you try on silly hats. Or stare at people without realizing that you’re staring at people until they start staring back.
Yes. Dangerous territory.
(p.s. Silly or not, I kind of wanted this hat. Just in a bigger size. )
It was quite the successful shopping day. I didn’t leave with any new hats, but I did find a new winter coat that was more than half the original price. And I purchased a couple of Christmas gifts for family.
No Christmas Eve gift shopping for me this year!
And, most importantly, we had fun.
Yes. It was a very successful shopping trip.
Question: Do you have snow where you live?
