snow

yesterday, we had snow that dusted the streets of Portland with glittery white. it was relaxing to sit inside and watch the snow fall. I liked watching it change direction, one minute it was snowing upwards, the next it was coming in sideways.
it’s funny what snow does to a city that hardly ever gets snow. hardly anyone drives. people sled down hills in trash can covers or whatever else they can find that might work. we bundled up and braved the streets to have lunch at our favorite spot.
I love the snow for it’s peaceful qualities. but today while walking to work…. it was a bit cold and not so much loved anymore.

happy monday friends!

    So pretty! I keep willing it to know here, but nada. The NYC metro area always gets screwed.

    Happy Momday!
    We have snow here in Vancouver too but most of it has dried up. It is just cold and icy now. We are expecting a snowstorme this weekend though. Just in time for christmas!

    Love the pictures, snow is so beautiful when it’s new, makes everything so white and clean, sometimes you can see cloud shapes in the trees.
    Hope you had a good monday!
