Snow Baby!

I was born and raised in New York state, where feet of snow and freezing temperatures where just the "norm" during the winter months. When I was 13, our family moved 5 hours south and we were lucky to get a few inches a year.

Even though I wouldn't consider our current geographical location as "southern", we are (just) south of the mason dixon line, so I guess I should be surprised that two inches of snow we got a couple weeks ago was treated like a full blown blizzard.

This snow fall was particularly beautiful. For just a few brief hours, it clung to the bare tree branches and transformed our backyard into a winter wonderland.

The trees were screaming "photograph me!", so I bundled Peanut up and we headed outside. I did manage to get some good pictures, but apparently I have turned into a Southern girl - after 3 minutes I was ready to just admire the snowfall from the inside of the window.


  1. How nice is it that that bueatiful snow is right within walking distance. Peanut looks so cute in her snowsuit!

  2. WE have had more snow in TX than I have seen in well ever! Pics are so cute!

  3. It's funny how the snow differed so much by location. We're only a little bit east of you and we certainly got more than 2 inches! My parents are slightly north and they didn't get as much either.
