Day 3 of what one weather source called a "life threatening" blizzard.
Snow blowing. Winds whirling. Cars slipping. Ice never melting. Headlights gleaming. Temperature: -3 degrees. Windchill: -20 degrees.
Clearly, I live in Minnesota now.
And winter has swept in.
On our way to a white Christmas.
Am staying home.
Rejoicing over having no place to go.
Observing the holiday that is a day of being snowed in.
Putting real sugar in a mug of tea.
Listening to "Let it Snow" on repeat.
Cleaning my house with extra care.
Pretending a space heater is a roaring fire.
Wearing my scarf.
Preparing comforting soup for the crockpot tonight.
Painting nails a Christmasy red.
Hanging newly received Christmas cards.
Hovering over a double boiler.
Creating a Christmas treat.
Dancing to "Last Christmas" by Wham.
Watching the snow accumulate.
Praying for a safe drive home for a certain husband.
Again, yay for December and Minnesota and all their weathery charms.

Mmm I love wintry weather. Sometimes there's no better feeling than being snowed in - nowhere to go, nothing to do but love every minute of a nice cozy day. Enjoy! xo

Oh wow, I can't quite imagine that windchill! My grandparents grew up in Minnesota, and, although I love snow, I don't know that I quite inherited their hardy stock. You certainly make a blizzard sound charming though :)

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
