{First} Snow Fall of the Season …

“It’s the first snow of the year!
I wonder will it stay for good?
I wonder will it be here in the morning
when I wake up to meet the day
will the fresh white snow still around me lay?”

 -Hawksley Workman

Yesterday, we woke up to find the world covered in a gentle blanket of frosty white coating …

There’s something so special about the first {real} snowfall of the year …

and of course, the first real snowfall in our new home …

The older girls were anxious to go discover the new world outside and try out the tiny hill with their sled …

Inside, we warmed up with the fire and hot chocolate, marshmallows and cookies …

These are the days we treasure. Just simple, ordinary days…

frosty and inviting outside, comfy and cozy inside.
