Real winter is finally here and not just according to the calendar. It’s alive and well in northern Michigan as our nest is tightly tucked underneath a fresh blanket of white. Finally! Let’s just hope it lasts beyond just a white Christmas. I’ve got skiing and sledding and snowman-making on my mind. You?
We started the shortest, darkest day of the year with a candlelit breakfast. Everything tastes better by candlelight, no? Although crepes always taste good to me, who am I kidding?
To take advantage of the few hours of sunlight we have today, we promptly headed outside to our winter wonderland. Snow days are so fun!
We came in to get warmed up and dried off.
And to make some more cookies this afternoon because Christmas Is Coming! Thank you, solstice. Thank you, snow day. Thank you, family. Thank you, advent. Thank you, readers!
Merry Christmas! I have enjoyed your posts through out the past year and look forward to seeing more of your happy family in the coming year. While we live downstate, we have property outside of Bellaire up there. We are hoping to make it into camp on Xmas day, if the snow isn’t too deep… If not I’ve told friends up there to expect company! Wishing you all the best of holidays!
My fav. so far…..wonderful. I do have one question…the bowls with the oranges….is it jadeite?
Beautiful pics! Enjoy the snow!
A lovely story… in words… and a terrific array of “story-telling” photographs. Makes me wanna get on my snow suit and… well… no it doesn’t.
