Snow Day

Living in Michigan in the winter is like living inside of a snow globe. On days like today, the whole world looks like it has been given a little shake, and we look out our windows and watch fluffy, white flakes swirl in circles around us. When it's over, the trees look like they're covered in powdered sugar and everything else is glazed in ice. It's not much for picnic weather, but it's something special to gaze at, that's for sure.

The past week or two have been one snow day after the next, and while it's somewhat of a hindrance to get anywhere (the roads are all a big Slip 'n Slide), I can't help but feel like I'm eight years old again and wishing for more.

If you're lucky enough to have the perfect amount of snow where you are, go outside and play. You can always fix some soup when it's time to go back inside.

  1. Gotta love snow! Plus it does make a pretty pattern on your table! May I suggest you take a drive to Island Lake State Park? It's beautiful when it's snowy out!

    1. The table does look pretty neat, doesn't it? :) And I haven't heard of Island Lake State park yet, but visiting on a snowy day sounds like a fantastic idea--I may just give it a try! Thanks, Jeanette!

    Doesn't Michigan have the biggest snowflakes you've ever seen? I'm pretty sure these snowflakes could cover up your whole face.

    ... obviously no exaggeration....

    1. Haha! Yes, Michigan DOES have huge snowflakes...one melted on my face the other day and I needed two bath towels to absorb all the water. Afterward, though, I was glistening like a winter princess.
