It snowed...a lot! It started Thursday afternoon and didn't finish until sometime late Friday night. If I think back to my childhood I fondly remember winters with this much snow all season long, but in the last few years we have had quite the shift in our winter season. We have moved to much warmer winters with much less snow. And while this is lovely, it just doesn't feel right. So when this storm arrived, I was quite happy. We got up Friday morning and cancelled all our plans. We shovelled, we played, we walked up our road, we played some more and then we headed inside to bake and play by the fire. It was one of those days we will remember for quite some time.
The rest of the weekend gave us a ton of sunshine and beautiful temperatures, so away we went into the woods to enjoy it. The three of us ventured along snowy trails, stopping to admire the simple things along the way...the trees, shadows on the snow, nests in trees, some wild turkeys, a bunny hole and a gorgeous sky.
The simple beauty of nature never ceases to amaze me.
