last night was our first snow of the year. i love living in colorado. of course, we are lucky because our snow melts just as quickly as it comes. we have more days of sunshine here than most other states which might make the snow more bearable. but snow just might be my very favorite type of weather. maybe it’s because i am a native and it’s all i have ever known. no matter, i love the peace that a beautiful snow brings. it covers everything in it’s glorious white. for some reason snow makes everything seem magical and new to me. i love getting cozy with a big blanket and reading a book or watching a movie. lovely! right now i am under my big down comforter with a big mug of tea as i type away on my laptop.
my girlfriend has a beautiful first snow tradition. she bakes her absolute favorite cookies only on the first big snow of the year. the kind of cookies that are so good you might just eat the whole batch. i think they are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. yummy! anyways, i love this idea. i think i need to come up with my own first snow tradition. cookies are not really in my strict diet. so i have to think this one over a bit. any suggestions?
