Now I'm going to tell you a little secret, come closer....
Whoo, there I said it.
Today in our anti-snow country its a bit daunting to say such things but there is something so pretty about everything being wrapped in a blanket of white, like nature pulling the duvet over and saying hey I wanna stay in bed.
I know for some its been a traumatic time, falls, frozen pipes, no heating, broken bones, no bread, chilblains, schools closed etc... but I think it has given a lot of people myself included a wonderful opportunity to slow down and enjoy life, and their family.
My Christmas as usual was a hurried affair, working in retail I worked till late Christmas Eve and was back in 8am Boxing day, but the snow made everything last longer, I enjoyed going everywhere a little slower, staying inside crafting while drinking hot chocolate, playing in the snow, explaining weather systems to my 3 year old, watching my husband building a snowman with her, seeing Lucas touch snow for the first time, going sledging together, all this is more precious than any commercial bought gift could be.
Wishing for more snowy times ahead.
