I braved the cold for you!


Isn't Winter beautiful? It's a marshmallow world out there, folks!


Do you know what one of my favorite things about Winter is this year? Nope, not sledding. Not hot chocolate. Not warming up next to the fire pit.

It's all those amazing Winter scenery pictures that keep popping up in Pinterest. This is one stunning season. The only problem is that it's cold. Real cold!

I thought I'd better get brave one day and pop outside to show you all the real beauty that surrounds us here everyday. Just to contribute to the pool of pretty pictures floating around out there and do my fair share.


I have to tell you that I only lasted about 5 minutes before my eyes were watering and my fingers were numb and I had to run back inside to the warmth of my blankie and my nice laptop.


For a moment though, I was out there in the blowing snow and not just admiring it from the window.


I brought the popcorn strings from the Christmas tree out for the birds.


And then I ran right back inside!

Do you have a favorite thing about Winter this year?

I was hoping to see a snow covered version of your view - thank you! My mom grew up in Iowa and remembers her nostrils freezing shut in the cold, cold weather. Western WA is pretty mild although a few snow flakes fell this morning.

Thanks for braving the cold to get these great photos of the snow! We are in a mild spell here in New Brunswick this week but it's still very snowy. I am so far enjoying the white snow and the beautiful blue skies we get most days. Also did you notice that winter sunrises and sunsets are really gorgeous and pink? Stay cozy inside. Hugs, Pamela

My favorite thing about winter this year is that we are finally having a real winter!!!! The last 2 years were mild and not stimulating at all.......but this year, ah, one of the best!!! We are in a January Thaw right now but more snow on the way next week and frigid temps too....I will get pics next time around to show you......the air is crisp and clean, the 'blue hour' just stunning....the smell is so fresh....

We're still wearing flip flops and shorts in Florida and I almost had to turn our A/C on ... your gorgeous pictures allow me to live vicariously through you and dream of finally being able to wear my scarves :)

I write a comment when I especially enjoy a post on a
site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
It is triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post
I looked at. And on this article "I braved the cold for you!".
I was excited enough to drop a comment :) I actually do have a couple
of questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be only me or do some of the responses come across like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd
like to follow anything new you have to post. Would
you list all of your shared pages like your twitter
feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
