Out


When you have baked yourself clean out of flour, puzzled through every puzzle, and worn your crayons to nubs... you have no choice but to bundle up your baby, take a deep breath, and say 'yes' when your three year old begs to go outside in sub-zero temperatures. And with frozen toes and stinging cheeks, you might be amazed by how beautiful your routine walk looks through a fresh coat of snow. Those curses and complaints you've been hurling at winter could start to soften, and recent fantasies of a more temperate place to call home may fade. Because no matter the cost or the hassle, a year without each season just wouldn't make sense. And when your kid plunges head first into a snow bank, coming up with a windburned smile, it might be a sign that he gets it too.

  1. I couldn't agree more! I love the snow. If it's going to be this cold, it may as well be beautiful too! Plus, our whole house lights up and that is a huge bonus this time of year!

    1. Thank you! It is beautiful, even more so when you don't have to cope with the crazy cold temperatures that made this fluffy snow possible ;)
