It's finally starting to feel like "the holidays". For weeks now, I've been anticipating the First Snow-- wondering when we'd finally get to see those annual white-lined streets and lacy trees again. I'm so glad it held out for such a long time this year. It really felt like an Event today because of it. Winter, oh Winter, how I love thee, yet shiver at the thought of you.
I've already ventured out for a long walk to commemorate and enjoy this beautiful First Sighting. Without planning it, a mug of hot coffee and the most delicious Red Velvet cupcake that you could ever imagine found their way into my day. Never has a cupcake tray sitting in the window looked so enticing and never has it fulfilled it's intent so fully as it did this afternoon. What a day.
Now it's time to snuggle up with the cat, order some pizza and enjoy a hot toddy or two.... well, Maybe.
