Dreaming of icicles

With temperatures rising every day here in Miami (80 degrees every day this week), I long for a longer hibernation period.

Even though it is practically summer out there and Lily is more than ready (and asking) to go to the beach, I just can’t get myself there.

I’m not ready to give up sweaters, tights and boots. (even though i think i will have to)

I’m missing frosted windows, snowflakes, gray days, bare trees, snow, cold and the quiet of winter.

I seriously hope we get a few cold weeks before the heat rises full blast.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!


One with the trees

Christmas day 2011 was not the usual as far as weather is concerned for West Virginia.

The sky was blue without a cloud in sight, the air was crisp and not freezing, it was perfect for a walk.

After opening all the presents and a big brunch, that is just what we did.

While some napped, we took a long walk to the the meadow.

We walked and walked and once we reached the meadow, Lily just sat down on a fallen tree.

She just sat there with her hands on her lap, quietly. As if she was one with the trees.

A Christmas day walk

Unlike the past two years where it snowed like crazy, this past Christmas day was perfect for a walk in the woods.

Clear blue sky, crisp air….

While some napped during the afternoon, Will, Lily, Hayes, the dogs and I went for a walk.

It’s always one of the great things I miss a lot when I am in Miami.

I feel like my head is still in a Christmas/birthday fog and tomorrow night will be New Year’s Eve.

Are you all ready for 2012? I am and am not all at the same time.

Happy friday everyone!


My snowy birthday

Good morning small stylers!

Yesterday was my 39th birthday.

Will, Lily and I went to Snowshoe for a Tex/Mex lunch and some snow play. (which Lily really enjoyed)

It had snowed in the morning so there was fresh snow and it was a beautiful cold winter afternoon.

Later at home there was a wonderful home cooked meal and a birthday cake baked by Hayes.

It was a great birthday spent with family and friends.

Linking to Morgan for small style.

Lily wears: coat, red fleece dress and ugg boots- hand me downs from cousin adelaide. furry hat- h&m. leg warmers- old navy. tights underneath- kiabi
