This weekend was all about transitioning between the holidays and the rest of winter. We put the ornaments away until next year, did some winter cleaning, and settled in for the cooler, rainier weather. I’m almost done knitting a scarf for Al, and my houseplant collection is growing (and I’m trying to keep better care of the old ones).
We weren’t expecting was to wake up to snow this morning. When I got out of the shower, I thought I could see white outside of our frosted bathroom window. I opened it, and saw a blanket of snow over the yard. By the time we woke Alba up, big snowflakes were flying all around. Realistically, this storm in the valley will be the only one (or one of few few) snows we have in this winter. Watching Alba light up when she saw it was amazing. An excited, “It ‘nowing!” was the sweetest to hear.
Right before the sun went down, we popped out to play in the snow. Alba loved sledding (until she decided she hated it – ohhhh toddlers!). Jim built a little snowman, and Alba sat down to talk to him: “Hi little guy!”.
This weekend was one of those that leaves you feeling fulfilled and refreshed. We ended our evening with homemade vegan chili & a fire in the fireplace (the fire would seem cozier if it weren’t for our binging of American Horror Story – a 1908 Craftsman is the perfect pairing to a horror show). Tomorrow, our girl turns two. My heart is full, and I’m excited for another adventurous year with our wild babe.
