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!
