Happy New Year! For us it's back to life, back to reality after a fabulous break from the regular stuff. Over the weekend we got our first official-ish snowfall of the season. We've had dustings here and there but yesterday afternoon, it started snowing in that way that makes me want to grab my fuzzy socks and cup of tea and hole up. I love a good snowstorm - there are points in the winter where I'll threaten to move somewhere hot for good (like last year after about 3 months of Polar Vortex) but when it comes down to it, I'm a good Canadian girl at heart and I honestly don't know what I'd do without our four beautiful seasons. I just couldn't resist a little cuddle after dinner on Saturday night, and then a little dance with Cliff in the backyard when we made it safely home through the snowstorm! (Also, how amazing are the holidays for getting to see dearest friends from far away who are in town for a visit!)
The other good part of being pregnant is, I have a good excuse to pass off the shovelling. Especially since this snowfall was followed by freezing rain - it looked from a distance like it was heavy. Heavy, but pretty. Thanks for getting out there and taking care of that Mike ;) !! I gave some moral support by way of taking photos. Also Cliff gave his two cents from the window upstairs (our driveway's too close to the road to have him outside with us), so really it was like Mike had two people helping him.
Yay for the start of a fresh New Year!!
