All Things Brrrrrright & Beautiful

Snow trees

Leave it to my home state to roll out the white carpet for me.

Within hours of my arrival in Minnesota, it snowed.

Four days in a row.

Spring in Minnesota

No complaints.  Mother Nature’s sense of humor amuses me.

It’s just that I’m not used to scraping my windshield.

In April.

April 2013

Although the weather outside was frightful, the warmth inside was delightful.

Laughter, memories, food… and lots of it.

Family stuff. xo

Snow pines

Unexpected chills make you appreciate warmth.

Safe havens cause you to count your blessings.

And snow can be fun.  (Yes, fun.)

You can take the girl out of Minnesota…

Many thanks for your love and support during my recent trip.

I’m looking forward to catching up with you soon!

In the meantime, it’s great to be home again.  Ahhh…

The green green grass of home

Enjoying a lil’ Spring in my step,


P.S.  Snowmen are best enjoyed with a cup of coffee… :)

  1. Dear Kimby,

    I would love to live in a city where it snows like this. I find it so beautiful and contrary to most people I love cold climate, the colder the better and I will happily cook some awesome winter stews with a glass of red in hand and perhaps some nostalgic Ella Fitzgerald numbers in the background.

  2. Hahahaha! I love that snowman came inside. :D It’s going to be close to 80F here, and I just realized that this year we didn’t take the kids to play with the snow (4 hrs drive northeast). They would love to even touch the snowman you have. :)

    • Purabi, I hope I didn’t sound like I was complaining. I’m just incredulous that MN is *still* getting snow! Not a typical winter (or Spring) there. I like your attitude towards snow and will remember that next time I go to MN! You’re a gem.

    • Helene, our “sauna season” is just around the corner. (Average temp 110 last summer!) Thanks for reminding me to keep these snowman pictures handy. :) Hope you get some relief from the heat soon!

  3. Aw, so glad you could make it home, even if the weather wasn’t exactly “heartwarming”-lol! Love your cute little snowman-he’s adorbs! Enjoy your time with family!

    • Veronica, every precious minute with family (my Dad especially, with his terminal cancer) is a blessing. Snow will come and go, but time with loved ones is what matters most. xo

  4. Welcome home, pretty girl…these Mother Nature funnies w/the weather sure put us in our place and let us know, there’s a higher source there that’s in control…glad to see you back safe and sound, and loved seeing this in my email !! xox Ally

    • Ally, you have no idea how much I rely on that Source to get me there and back in one piece. Torrential rains all the way, except thru KC — bone dry both ways! Tell me it wasn’t planned that way… :) xo
