Houses Covered in Icicles

Over Thanksgiving break my family was able to visit my grandparents in the Sierra Mountains.  To say it was cold would be an understatement. Freezing-your-butt-off-cold is more like it.  It did, however, make for some beautiful pictures!  My dad took our dog for a walk and took my new Canon Rebel T1i with him to snap these stunning images. {Yes, I was home in the warm house by the fireplace. Don't judge} The neighborhood my grandparents live in is so charming.  Take a look at some adorable houses:




Those are some serious icicles!


She's just such a natural in front of the camera (:

Their next door neighbors even have some horses in their yard

I give you full permission to make one of these images the background on your computer...I sure did! {Okay, mine's the one of Shasta}

Have I showed you enough to want to take a trip to their neighborhood?? On Wednesday I'm going to be sharing more of the interiors of my grandparent's beautiful home with you!

Happy Monday, lovelies!

Love and Icicles,
