Snow! {Friday Inspiration}

Thursday morning we woke up to a few inches of snow, and I was so excited to finally have the white stuff around. Before breakfasst in our pjs, I bundled up Naomi and we headed outside, she was captivated by by the snow, and she kept trying to grab it, brush it off things, and overall just understand what it was. We headed inside just has her fingers were getting cold and she began to express her distress.

After breakfast, we bundled up again and headed outside. This time we set out with her stroller, so if she got tired and cold I could bury her in blankets. At first, she did not want to go out in the stroller, instead she was all set to walk and make the most of the experience. It was fun watching Naomi explore, going off on her own path, leaving a path of small boot prints in the snow. Eventually, she got tired and her hands got cold, so into the stroller she went with my warmed gloves on her hands.

On the return home, I liked how graphic the road looked with ruts from cars and our stroller.

Here are a few items I also noticed on the walk. I was captivated by the small details and patterns, that are always present, however the snow made them seem more special.

How magical snow is. A ski coach told us years ago that the snow would be the glue to keep our families together at the mountain and it is indeed the truth.
Beautiful images. I love the first one of your daughter.
