There was snow on the ground this week. Last year was a hard one. We had piles and piles of snow and blizzards and ice and horribleness. This year, we didn't see snow until the last day of November. It didn't stick, but it stuck for awhile on Thursday before melting.
Luckily, here in the middle of Iowa, we have been graced with only a dusting of snow so far. It's winter, so give it awhile. But the first soft snowfall is always inspiring. The kiddo is ready to break out the snow boots and my office is decorated with the paper variety. (Shh, don't tell anyone, but we hung up snowflakes the day before it snowed. I think it's our fault.)
It finally feels like the holidays!
Do you have snow in your neck of the woods? What does nature do to signal to you that the holidays are coming?
