White Out

I grew up in California {and certainly left me heart there} but beautiful white blankets of snow make me oh-so-happy, and dare I say-- kind of adore Washington. I woke up to 3-4 inches of snow yesterday and I couldn't have been happier! Snow in Seattle = everything shuts down, including school. No classes...hooray!  Since we couldn't drive, I took a nice walk over to one of my best friend's houses {also from California}. After drinking some tea, we ventured out in the snow. It was thrilling and relaxing and inspiring.  These two California girls were loving the snow :) And what a snow day it was.


Thank you, God, for pretty, white snow & good friends.
This was our day...


Happy Thursday! May your day be filled with finding joy in the little things :)
Love,

Today she's doing a demo of her services for yours truly :) To be clear, this is for my far-in-the-future-wedding. Nothing in the works yet! Lisa really captured all the things I love...including purple!

  23. HAHAH, wow this makes me giggle ;) I grew up in Maine, and 4 inches of snow was just like any other normal day. It took at least a foot of snow to even make them CONSIDER shutting down school ;) I'm happy for you though that you got a snow day!! Looks like you had a blast xoxo

  24. Could you be any cuter!? Love your photos, looks likes so much fun!

    I was born in Cali and moved to WI when I was 11. I remember witnessing my first snow fall and it was crazy! I ran around with my brother having snowball fights haha. But then it snowed all winter long and the temps were below zero. Needless to say I was over it lol. We got about 4 inches today and it was like no big deal even if we just added to the 5 we already had :)
