Waking up to a heavy snowfall in February is extremely bittersweet. Half of you has their your heart wishing and hoping for an early spring (even though you know deep in that heart, it’s not happening) so the snow gets a big sigh and a deep side eye. The other half is stoked, because it was looking pretty drab and gross out there, winter just isn’t the same without snow. If winter is gonna stick around for a bit more (and we all know it is) there might as well be snow. Cold without the snow is just dirty old cold, really the city is dirty, brown and salt crusted without some snow.
Also, the kids cannot get enough of the snow and we really haven’t had much of it at all this year. It’s always a great time, even if their hands are frozen, boogers are crusted to their faces and their butts are soaked through from sitting in snow banks every couple of steps. Really yesterday’s snowfall was so good, I was this close to calling it a mental health day, so we could all just go sledding.
Trying my darnedest to enjoy these cold, wet and for now white wintery moments while they last – because they WILL be over soon, RIGHT!? As much as I wish winter was gone (with all of my being) it really is full of so much goodness, especially when kids are involved sometimes it’s really hard to see it through the bitter cold.
A few photos I snapped throughout the day yesterday, Happy Tuesday!
