The Gift of Being Here

The view outside of our kitchen window this morning demanded that we take a walk this afternoon.  Bright snow crunched under our feet as we headed into an open field and turned up to a hill top.  The clean, dry air felt good on my face --- and all other parts were bundled tight in layers of warm clothes.  Neighbors ride their horses on this path and we followed their footprints.  At least 8 inches of snow has fallen and the snow capped Alps serve as a sparkling crown to this landscape.

There is so much that I love about where I am right now.

  1. Look so beautiful there, snow on the ground and covering trees and bushes, sunshine, calm. Our mild, warm, blue-skied autumn is a lovely memory. Winter came in like a lion on Sunday, it has been gray, blustery, and very cold compared to the past few weeks. Missing you.
