My Ani-Lee dress was waiting for me when I got home today. It is exquisitely beautiful and very much reminds me of a tutu.
However, I won’t being wearing it on my birthday! It is far toooo cold here in Indy. Tomorrow the temperature will be a whopping 1 degree, brrrr!
I must say thank you to Jen because I first saw the dress on her blog which is featured in January’s Cosmo Australia! Way to go Jen!
When I saw these budding green sprouts yesterday, it made me so happy! The weather is cold, the grass brown, and the sun shines only for a fleeting moment. Everything seems so lifeless and barren. But seeing this lovely burst of green was a gentle reminder that God has not forgotten about me. This is His version of “picture mail! He designed spring to follow winter for a reason. Hallelujah!
Last night I was walking through the hallway, heading to my bedroom when I noticed a soft glow in the living room. I thought that Nicholas had left a kitchen light on so I went to turn it off. This “light” happened to be the brillance of the snow shining in through our large picture window. It was such a pretty, peaceful sight; like the light of an angel’s halo in the starry night sky.
Sometimes winter is such a drag, especially in a state like this one. The potholes are enormous, the snow is a dirty, unsightly mess, and the temperature is colder than a polar bear’s toenails! So this forces me to find something to appreciate about the season. Hmmm…
- Hot chocolate and tea
- Warm sweaters
- Cute boots, coats, and other winter accessories
- The coming of spring
- More time at home (too cold for traveling)
- Nicholas actually enjoys playing in the snow
- Soups, stews, and crockpot concoctions
- Baking (helps warm the house and the soul AND it makes the house smell good!)
- Snow days!
- Cuddling (of course, for the body heat!)
