a blanket of white

Snow is falling.
We have had a blanket of white since Christmas.
It is glorious (in my opinion). 

Much of my youth involved snow. 
My siblings and I grew up on skiis.



Our winter weekends revolved entirely around snow, skiing and the pure beauty of the mountains.

I am grateful to my parents for enabling us to have such wonderful winter memories.


I still am amazed by snow.  The bigger the flakes the better. 


  I want to stay home tomorrow, sip tea and just watch the snow fall.  They predict six inches by daybreak, with more to follow.  
Enough for a snow day! 


Daydreaming Desire


I am thankful for those memories.

I love big wet snowflakes also! And I love being inside by the fire with a raging snowstorm outside.
We did get some snow here over the last couple days, but I'm sure it'll be gone by sunday. Oh well...

I have some great skiing memories. Really, they are the best memories that I have. They were the best years!

I love snow. IF.. I can sit inside and admire it from the warmth and comfort of my couch. LOL!

I grew up in Colorado, but I'm a California native and never took to the snow. I've never been skiing, and reluctantly went sledding and inner tubing as a kid.

I'm a beach person at heart, but I'm sure if I ever move to the coast, I'll find myself missing the snow.
