snowpocalypse

It was a snowy weekend (finally) in New Hampshire!
I realize some of you might think I'm crazy for being so cheery over this, 
but I was legitimately giddy about it. 
There's just something about a white Christmas.
Plus, you know, the fact that it won't be all brown and dead for my wedding now!

I went up north to my parents' house again this past weekend to wrap up some wedding stuff.
I needed to put the final touches on the wedding favors, which are finally done,
and I wanted to get some more Christmas shopping out of the way.

It's crazy to think that in 19 days, I'll be married.
So, basically, once Christmas rolls around it's crunch time, and I want to be able to enjoy the holiday
without any wedding stress.
I think we're well on our way to being there now. 

But anyway, back to the snow.
My parents got about 14 inches in their neck of the woods, which then had to be cleared.
I tackled the cars and the porch, while my father cleared the driveway, 
and let me just say that I am really and truly feeling all of the shoveling I did yesterday.
That is one heck of a workout.

^^^ there really is a Civic buried under all of that white stuff
Honestly though, there's magic in snow.
The whole word just settles into something so peaceful and still.
It's this pristine beauty that really speaks to my soul, and I think that's why I love it so very much.

  10. I do like how pretty it looks from my window in a nice warm house! Haha! I just don't like the shoveling or slow traffic. It is really pretty though.

  11. Snow is always so pretty as long as you don't have to go out anywhere! I love the kind that we get here in VA that sticks around for a day or so then goes away! :)

  15. I totally agree snow is magic. It holds such beauty and mystery. I find it so inspiring. We had a huge snowfall here in Ontario too! And it is currently snowing more as I type this. Those dogs are the cutest! What is the breed? They look like they love the snow! Happy Holidays xo

    1. We have to brush them once a week...it's quite the chore! We also have to shave Panda, the one in the back, twice a year because she has a skin condition, and it messes up her fur.
