It's Snow Beautiful!

I may have mentioned this previously, but throughout the cold winter months, my creativity, productivity, etc. slows down considerably. The cold, wet, grey days, one after the other, just put a damper on my energy, motivation and (though, I hate to admit it) overall attitude. But, in a moment of positivity, I said to myself – that’s no excuse! So, today, I decided to blog about one little thing in particular that sometimes brightens my mood, and often delights my eyes, during this otherwise seasonal downer. That thing is the soft fall of a light snow as it gently lay on, well, everything. It adds a certain beauty to things we see everyday, and turns things that are ordinarily 'nothing to write home about' into lovely vignettes.

So, I've included a few shots that I thought made the winter a bit more pleasant! Some of them are shots of the recent snow we’ve had around here, but I’ve also included some photos I’ve snapped over the last few years, as well as one I snagged browsing the web.

So, if you’re like me, and feeling hum-drum with all this cold weather, take a break and enjoy the beauty found in it!

These next few pics are from our time in NYC - they are views from our 3rd floor terrace (a tiny luxury in our 400 sq. ft. home) during one of New York's big storms.

Well, hope you enjoyed them and hope you are staying warm.. hang in there ‘til spring!
